Yes, yes it got there by getting upvoted by their bot, but still, that feeling that something you made is "front page" is awesome.
And now for some sweet irony: the meme that got the big upvote took me very little time to create, as opposed to yesterday's meme that took a couple of hours and didn't get much attention.
Why did it take me that long? Because I spent a lot of time trying different free editors that would help me get the font right. I didn't quite succeed, but at that point I felt like I put to much time into it and that it was good enough.
Original recruitment poster used for the first time during WW1
I tried to convey through my modification the need for good content creators on this platform just like a 100 years ago they had the need for men to go to war.
Ideally I would like to see that poster ( a higher quality version of it with some more tweaking of the font to make it look exactly the same) posted on other social media sites as a funny "recruitment" tool. A man can dream .... :)
I will keep on posting memes every day ( hopefully) on my other account @cmmemes and try to get better at mememing ( that's definitely a word :) )
