i only know the jackpot entry and a couple of mine that are linked in my profile. and also the one that irawr kept using a while ago of “if this wins – i’ll **** on a toad”

Let me add I do think copying another persons entry in the very next round in most instances should be viewed as satire or parody and not plagiarism and should not be bannable.

I totally agree with MCB. Not only the entries could be repeated, they actually should. Repetition is how any Internet meme is created, and this actually is what “parody role-playing game that takes place on the Internet” for.

Also, it’s not the plagiarism itself caused these new rules, but rather illegal alts and other ways of abusing the game. I agree, illegal alts should be banned, but why change the rules this way?

No, that’s not the well-known ones, that’s the entire list. Big difference.

Presumably I wouldn’t get banned for using a little-known one, as that’s not in the rules. Just the well-known ones.

And CS, I didn’t say I was going to re-use an entry of mine. I’m asking WHY I can’t.

Well probably not the whole list but I believe the ones with the highest votes are popular enough to be considered well-known Log in to see images!

Memes should just happen. Nobody likes forced memes. That’s not a good argument.

Nevertheless everyone uses them, as long as they are funny. Say, “Dear diary” is always a hilarious entry when used on appropriate picture. It’s just us who seen this entry zillion times and bored with it already, while newbies still consider it funny.
