What Turns Something Into A 'Meme' ?

14 August 2015 - 11:50 PM

We have all seen tons of memes on the internet, but have you ever stopped and considered what made that "something" a meme ?
 Most of the time a meme can be a funny/cute/odd/ironic image with text, yet other times there is no apparent reason why something became meme material.

 What is your theory about how something becomes a meme ?

There has been a couple times I have accidentally hit the wrong voting button.


 I recommend that there is some kind of feature to undo a vote .

Microsoft Is Laying Off More Workers This Year

08 July 2015 - 03:57 PM

 On top of the 18,000 workers who lost their job last year, Microsoft announced more job losses this year. [ News Story ]

The odd thing is - while the company is firing American workers, they are applying for more H1-B visas to hire foreign workers.

What Happens At Render Time When This Occurs ?

28 June 2015 - 08:13 PM

 I was reading through some auto-generated JavaScript, when I noticed there were dozens of <script> tags all over the place - like this example

 <script> some code here </script><script> some code here </script><script> some code here </script><script> some code here </script>


 At page render time, what actually happens ?

I am guessing that this example would open and close the JavaScript interpreter several times, slowing down the page rendering process.


Disable Replies From Folks With Very Low Scores

28 June 2015 - 05:13 PM

 To prevent individuals from getting into a situation were they have a high negative score, I would recommend that after a certain negative score is obtained, (? around -200 ?) the individual is unable to make any new replies in sections that have 'ranked threads' .


 Once individual raises their score through voting, journal entries, 'the game', e.t.c ... they are able to resume replying in 'ranked threads' until their score drops back below the threshold.
