Looking … Yes, it was just a joke unrelated to the franchise or the fandom, pasted onto an image of Cheerilee, so it was deleted for Rule #3 – "Obligatory Pony". Images should always have a clear association to MLP:FiM, and just pasting text onto a pony doesn’t make it "associated".

If you’d like to discuss this or have any other questions, feel free to reply, or you can PM me if they’re personal, and you can always get in touch with staff by joining us in the -help channel on IRC (available at the bottom of every page).

Sorry – I edited my earlier reply with the info. I just wanted to mark the thread as "being worked on" so others on staff didn’t bother with it.

That image is 3 years old.

Memes have their time, then they fade. Just because they faded doesn’t mean we go back and delete them.

All of your images are "exploitable memes" or image macros that could arguably be deleted for Rule #3 – but if they aren’t reported or noticed then we don’t pay much attention to them.

Basically, you’re taking screencaps and adding text to them, making them an image macro. If they are very much in keeping with the fandom then we host them, and we host a lot of image macros and exploitable memes.

But we also delete a lot of them, especially if there’s already a lot of images just like it, or if the text on the image is so far removed from the fandom so that it’s just a pony with some text on it. Or, if you upload too many of them at one time, so that your image macros are the majority of a page and people start asking us to do something because you’re pushing artist’s images off of the front page.

So, just please make sure that your images are related to the fandom in a way other than that there is a pony in the image, and space out your uploads enough so that you are not pushing artists off of the front page, and it should be fine.

Hypotheticallay, could I try uploading it in a few weeks time?

I know it’s not all pony related and that’s a requirement and I can respect that, I just want to try some bad joke cheerilee memes.

It’s not really possible for me to speculate as to what the images might be, but if you are saying yourself that they are not pony related, please don’t upload them.

This is an MLP site. If you have non-MLP content that you want on the internet, please use a site like DA or Imgur or something where you don’t have to match a theme.

Kk, and I’m talking about the cheerilee meme that recently got deleted

Yeah I do have memes that talk about episodes and events from the fandom, for example I have a vegeta curing meme saying me during and after the perfect pear, I know I can’t upload that one here by itself.

Guess put it here. I am missing a Picture. That had sparked a nice and civil discussion. It was not any more or less releated to the fandom as the other "Scootaloo´s Aunt Drama" Picture but way less harmful.

Would like to know why it was removed. What line I crossed with it.

Well was not intendet to create the discussion. thought get some dislikes for daring to say that I don´t like the "Word of God" from Mr. Vogel on principle that it is "Word of God". Thought I would have landed in the negativ numbers with insults thrown at me.

That is why I am so happy that it wasn´t deleted but just "filtered out". It is just such a positiv experience all around.
