Talk:List of Memes

If we use headings instead of bullets, then links can point directly to the meme they want using the number sign. -- Stefanido 10:15, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Whatever. I'm tired of people caring more about memes than all the information that has to be transported from the website archives to the wiki. ---BenzyneTalk Page 16:45, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Time Frame

Is it not appropriate for each year page to have a list of which memes were used that year? For instance, what else is going to link to Monetary Surplus other than 2009-10? -- Stefanido 10:17, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Subcategories for years within the Memes category. I do not want lists of memes on the year pages themselves; I find them rather annoying---BenzyneTalk Page 16:45, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Catclan + General protest to the degrading nature of "minor" memes.

I'm sorry I may be annoyingly persistent about this, but isn't Catclan a little too complex to be considered a "minor" meme? Or even a meme for that matter? I mean, look at "Monetary Surplus", "McSquiggly" and "Nicely Done, Lyra". They're all anecdotal in nature and their usage is infrequent, if present at all. Frankly, "Imma firin' ma lazar! BAAAH!" and "Its all over yar face!!" could even fit with them. Catclan in contrast has constance(people do use then names), structure and rules to explain the complex naming procedure, which in itself is like joining a special club. Within Spacesim. So I ask again, why is Catclan a "minor" meme? Why is it even a meme? Its a subculture within the Spacesim culture, its should have its own article for cryin' out loud! Who knows, maybe they'll be a "Strankat", somewhen in 2019, scouring the archives looking for the antique naming rules of Catclan going "Man, what the heck were they doing back in 2010, not noting things down properly, ARRH!!!" Our duty is to preserve the knowledge of spacesim for the future generation, and that doesn't just mean the pseudoscience behind AYSE and the Antigrav, it also means the current culture of Spacesim. We don't know much about the past spacesim culture, and that's a loss. So ya. Catclan's important. If Lores in general are just too much for you guys, I'll take care of it. After all its kind of my job. ---Wernstrum, Stargakat, Jonas 21:53, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Is the list of Catclan members strictly necessary? This will get unwieldly quickly, if you're right about Catclan surviving more than one generation of Sim. -- Stefanido 01:00, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

Major Changes

All Memes have been moved to this page, and any previous memes pages have been made into redirects to this page. This was done for several reasons

  1. To avoid outcry at Memes being labeled Minor Memes
  2. To avoid unnecessary clutter on the wiki with a one sentence article for each meme
  3. To put all memes at a central location for ease of access

-- Stefanido 11:33, 1 April 2010 (EDT)


It is suggested that each meme have a maximum of:

  1. 12 Lines of Text (established by Nicely Done, Lyra)
  2. 1 Sub-heading (established by Nicely Done, Lyra)
  3. 1 Picture (established by Trogdor)
