    Aren't video game memes the best thing on the Internet?
    IF YOU AGREE: you might enjoy this new feature we're about to show you.
    IF YOU DISAGREE: you can immediately disable this new feature by customizing your portal, removing the meme box, and never hear from it again.

    Now we've got that out of the way, if you're still reading this you're probably just like me: you love a good meme. In fact you wish you could browse memes endlessly at night before sleep. Well what do you know? GBAtemp now does that for you! We're introducing an experiment called The Meme Box, which is meant for the community to share fun pictures and browse them comfortably from the home page.
    ► You can 'like' a meme by tapping it on mobile or clicking it on desktop.
    ► Upload your own memes by posting in the meme box thread; if your post gets 5+ likes you'll hit the home page.
    ► The full rules are detailed in the meme box thread.
    ► You are allowed to react to memes in the thread, even without including images/attachments: if you think a meme is good just say it.

    Click on a meme to view it in a gallery. Works on mobiles and desktops

    Remember that this is an experiment. If you don't like this you can simply disable the feature and ignore the meme box thread (which is in the EOF anyway). Thanks for your time and we hope you enjoy this! Have fun.

    Did...you do this?

    You know, Dr. Frankenstein had an experiment, as well......I guess it was fine.

    Amusing for a short moment, but it is ultimately just clutter to me.

    Considering there's a very clear warning about distributing warnings for misuse, I think this *may* be fine.
    At worst it's not impossible to prevent several members to reply to the thread either if they shitpost instead of providing good memes (I know that sounds weird said that way)

    It still wouldn't stop Facebook style memes from being featured, or any offensive image if someone creates 5 alts (since it says that any image with 5 likes will automatically get featured)

    The first one is inevitable (and to be honest, several may be good anyway)
    For the other one, lol, if a kid gets so much free time on their hands, they need to be purged from the site.

    It wouldn't be good for the site if an archive.org or web search bot just happens to crawl the site when it's live
