  1. Was there a trial that prohibited low effort google image question posts like “WHAT IS YOUR FAVORTITE (something) or WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT (something)?

  2. Can the next Media Guideline trial prohibit the overused meme format of characters standing in a POI with a back and forth dialogue exchange?

  3. I have a feeling that this is a bit too far. I mean, what if you want to make a meme about, say Klombo. He’s vaulted, so people would have to probably use a stock photo of him as opposed to going as far as to build a full on model in creative or something like that. I think this rule is too far.

  4. I’m kinda mixed on this.

    One hand it will help clear some posts up, but at the same time, making a post about something like different items and opinion and discussion posts are made harder to make since you have to take the images yourself, and the replay feature can be a bugger sometimes.
