GIF WARS and having fun - declined payout post

in funny •  4 months ago

There are well over 30 content creators still trying to cross the finish line of the Community Engagement Challenge.

The biggest hurdle is comments.

Yup. Challenge participants have to come up with a minimum of 500 thoughtful comments because crap like "Nice Post" or "Follow Me" would get them immediately disqualified from the prize pool.

Let's have some fun!

I don't know about you but I love... absolutely LOVE when people use gifs or appropriate pictures and memes as responses. You get the full on effect of what they're saying and feeling.

For example...

I had a conversation with @sgnsteems about using gifs in her comments

So, I sent her the link to giphy.com and she responded with...


Did it work?...do you need to cite these?

My stomach still hurts from laughing so hard! Yes, @sgnsteems, it worked!


And then, of course, was the conversation that started with @lexikon082...
It started off innocently enough. He was talking about how I'm tracking people on the Community Engagement Challenge spreadsheet

Participants highlighted in pink are in danger of being disqualified. But @lexikon082 made the mistake of saying "don't look for butt puckered up GIFS" and of course... NOW I HAD TO! and I've been torturing him with this in his comments feed for 2 days.

DAMMIT FRANK, you made me look

Even better than that, I was laughing so much yesterday that I had to share it on Facebook. Not realizing where I'd left my tabs, I took a break from the computer and walked to the mailbox. When I got back my husband left me a note:

Indeed.

What can I say? I have a warped sense of humor. LOL


So fear not, dear friends! If you're participating in the challenge I encourage you to have some fun and respond with gifs and memes. Let's boost your comments count and have a laugh.

I am one of those struggling with comments. All my 7 articles have been published.

·

This comment is sooo yesterday! LOL
Because you're in the winner's circle now!

·

I have a proposal for you @positivesteem and @fungusmonk we can chat on each other's posts until we reach our goals.
I'm willing to stay awake if needed, all night long until we accomplish it.
And, I'm not joking!

·
·

Thanks for the offer. It was tough but i managed to come out with 500plus comments in time.

·

I'm mad for missing the gif party when it was launched 3 days ago.

Are there really no replies yet?

Probably 1500 replies by the time I figured it out!!!

·
·
·

Still, it's never too late to...

·
·
·

So true! Always time to party! 😊

·
·

Agree! Never-ending story!

Never-ending Story

·
·
·

Guys, this posts is the biggest distraction I've seen so far. I need to finish my daily task, not to stare at gazillions of gifs.

·
·
·
·

Don't get distracted, @steemfluencer - go and reach your goal! 🙂

·
·
·
·
·

Thanks! "_"

Good! BTW - What's your lucky number of missing comments now?
Lottery

·

Gawd! I know, right?!? Duh fug, guys!

Ok, what @merej99 failed to tell you is she left this GIF on FB too to further wreck my serene and sterilized life. Now, I have not been on Facebook in probably 4 days and I had a ~buttload~ assload of comments. I was about to go to bed after checking messages and I see I was mentioned in a comment. So, I see I was mentioned in a comment. What do I see? ASS GIF, right before bed.

She's a monster and has to be stopped for the sake of humanity.

·

But... I'm sweet!


LOLOL

·
·

John Wayne Gacy was also considered sweet.He actually escorted President Jimmy Carter’s wife on one of her visits to Chicago. He would dress up as a Clown for charity events and parades. Everyone loved Gacy because he was so sweet, lol.

·
·
·

What is wrong with people? Don't they know clowns are...

BAD?

·
·
·
·

You've got it all wrong.

My childhood mentor let me know what's up.

·
·
·
·
·

What's that saying...

and pound foolish.

·
·
·
·
·
·

The best clowns in the game taught me

how to avoid clowns of that ilk.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·

I will ponder these thoughts.

·
·
·
·
·
·

WOW... it this from It?

·
·
·
·

Yes, yes, clowns are bad and scary.

Ok, I have to go and find the notes on how to insert a gif...

·
·
·
·
·

Just like you would a youtube video. If you go to giphy, find the gif you want, and click it. You'll see an option to copy link. A short list of links appears. I usually use GIF Link. @karenmckersie - calling you in so you know too.

you may have just created a bunch of

and another cumbersome post lol

·

Yessir!


Let's see what you people got!

·

I love that gif! Thank you for playing along with us :)

That picture you posted about @lexikon082's conversation made me go:

When @lexikon082 said don't look for... I was like

Do I? Don't I? hmmm....

·
·

Hahahahaha 😂😂😂
That's almost like a dance :)

·
·
·

Could have been a spasm too

Frank already thinks I'm crazy. LOL

·
·
·
·
·

Seriously what the heck fingers. Did I just flag this?? Tell me if I did so I can fix it. I was just trying to VIEW it for goodness sake. They need to move t hat flag for phone users!!!

·

Don't talk to me about big numbers, please!
Waiting in a line

·
·

I try not to think about them myself...

·
·
·

I can't, not to think! I feel like a prisoner who is counting the days spent in prison by scratching lines on the wall for each day that past. That way I'm now counting my comments. Total insanity! - LOL -
Prisoner

It was more like this...

And I couldn't stop!

·
·
·

Aww, gosh... I need a towel now.

Of course, but calm down @fungusmonk - no need to be so excited, 😜 it's just a simple "Yesss!"
