  • Type 2: a meme that promotes health or well-being of body, mind, and/or soul
  • Type 3: a meme that is pure of heart, devoid of corruption or malice, modest, stable, virtuous, and all-around sweet and compassionate
  • Type 4: a meme that conveys support, positivity, compassion, understanding, love, affection, and genuine friendship by re-contextualizing classic meme formats, and using them to display warmth and empathy

definition of a meme / memetics

  • a way of describing cultural information being shared.
  • an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, especially imitation.
  • Please note, Moderators reserve the right to remove any post for any reason.

Rules

  1. All posts must be wholesome memes.

  2. Be general, not specific. Memes should be relatable, with universally uplifting themes. Avoid posts that promote an ideology, religion, or brand over others, & posts that show individuals' politeness without some universal theme. Memes about controversial themes, people, and/or institutions are not allowed either.

  3. Please avoid submitting NSFW content.

  4. Please no trolling, harassment, rudeness, or behaviour unbecoming of the wholesome users we know you to be. Keep comments civil and be respectful of your fellow users. See here
    Be nice. This is a happy place.
    No proselytizing. Keep your religion, your politics, your diet, and any other crusade you might carry to yourself. We come here to get away from arguing and politics and the like, so please respect that by keeping your agendas to yourself.

  5. Please do not post personal info, yours or others. All names should be blocked out, except public figures. Also, private communication is private; please don't post it here.

  6. Please link to images directly. This makes browsing easier for those using RES or through a mobile device.

  7. Please do not post low effort memes (upvote memes, metareddit, etc.) This includes "Let's get this to the front page!" type posts, "You have been visited by", "people who sort by new", "stop scrolling", "check your data" 4th wall interaction type meta posts, posts that mention reddit karma, upvotes, and "I don't want upvotes but..." type posts. Additionally, it includes low effort memes such as Skyrim "Wholesome 100", "You're Breathtaking", Thanos "That does put a smile on my face", [happiness noises], Fallout [Everybody liked that], and "Because that's what heroes do". See here for more on this rule.

  8. Please avoid re-posting memes. (Browsing Top/New posts can help, also Tineye & other image searches.) Do not spam or post more than 3 memes in a 24 hour period.

  9. Please make an effort with your title. Avoid generic titles, try to be descriptive or fun.
