Memeit.lol is an aspiring meme platform that rewards original memes and incentivises honest work. It may not have all the delegation and development support but it is a transparent open source project and can take the community votes and suggestions.
- Enabling identification of plagiarised/similar memes.
- Easier search for meme backgrounds when creating a meme
1)At the moment when posting from Memeit.lol the content sent to the blockchain is a simple
<img> tag with the image source url. Beside the title of the post, this doesn't provide enough information about the content of the meme.
I propose adding the name of each meme as an attribute to the
<img>or under Steem post tags.
I also propose adding each text used when creating a meme under
alt=""attribute or as separate attributes.
2)My other proposal is add a search box when creating a meme.
Mockups / Examples
<img meme=“advice-dog” texts=“how to advice dog use a ling of text here give bad advice like buying ripple and another here" src="https://cdn.pixelhosting.co/24sue5fkxj/11472ec152f8d36b3915115498cb5537352efbda46e0bbfcf20b049be1344c1f.png" />
Each meme posted will have a unique identifiable meme attribute (Meme name) and the work that is done by users (Meme texts).
To look up for plagiarised memes we don't have to do an extensive reverse image search on each image and we don't have to depend on moderators' memory which can be subjective to error.
By adding attributes to images early on, this will enable an easier search by moderators and users of memes with similar attributes. This will also enable @cheetah and other bots to compare memes from Memeit-lol.
The second proposal will help users find memes from hundreds of memes that will be added later.
If memes are posted with their tags, users can easily look for them by searching for the corresponding name in the search box.
