Memerator Frequently Asked Questions

Here are questions people have "asked" a "lot", so you don't have to keep asking!

Meme FAQs

How do I submit a meme?

Simple! Go to Submit a Meme when signed-in and either select an image or paste a URL to submit your meme!

I found a meme that breaks the guidelines, what do I do?

Smash that report button found right on the meme page, fill out the information, and submit! We will review it in due time.

Why can't I delete memes?

As wise Mr. Hovey once said, "People shouldn't be able to delete their memes, they should have to live with their consequences." However, you can disable the meme, meaning only you will be able to view it. If you really need a meme deleted for any reason, send us a support ticket (after you verify your email) telling us which meme you want deleted by its meme id, why you want it deleted (unless it's obvious) and we will be happy to assist.

Can I have a custom meme id?

Custom Meme IDs are not available to be chosen at this time

User FAQs

How do I disable my account?

To disable your account, you must first verify your email address, then you can go to the danger settings and disable your account there. To re-enable your account, you must contact support.

How do I delete my account?

It's not possible to delete your account at this time. However, you are free to disable or transfer all your memes.

After I verify my email, what will you do with it?

Store it securely! We will never send unsolicited emails. Every email sent by us is enabled or requested by you. If you disable everything, you'll never get an email from us!

Someone has a username I want, what do I do?

Our Name Squatting policy currently makes un-verified accounts who haven't been signed into for more than a year (verified accounts, 5 years) are automatically be released (using the format username_loginyear). However, if an account was created months ago and has no activity (memes, ratings, anything), is un-verified and is taking a username you want, email support and we will decide if we believe you should get it. Service accounts are never eligible for pickup and can never be owned by a human until the developers decide they don't need it anymore.

Why do I lose my verification when I change my name?

The point of verification is show who you are. If you keep changing who you are, how are we supposed to keep up? We just want to make sure you yourself aren't impersonating someone.

Right now!

How will payments be processed?

Through Stripe.

How can I pay?

Via Credit Card or Apple/Google Pay.

For unredeemed Pro Credits, the expiry date is 1 month. For self-redeemed Credits, the expiry date is 1 week.

Refunding Pro for any reason will prevent you from buying Pro for a certain amount of time to prevent future abuse, however gifts may still be accepted.

Are there ways to get Pro for free?

Yes! We have various ways to get Pro for free. Most happen on our Discord server. You get Pro for Server Boosting the server, and 1 week for every 10 members you invite. You can also get Pro for helping translate Memerator.

Can I sell a Gift Link?

NO. We do not allow re-selling of Pro. Please report any scammers to us at our support email. If you see a place to buy Pro that isn't on Memerator.me, it is a SCAM!

Am I allowed to giveaway a Pro Credit for free?

Absolutely! We encourage it, given that entry is free (it would be a lottery in that case, and that's your own problem)

If someone gifts me a month of Pro, can I redeem it if I'm subscribed?

Yes! For every Pro Credit you redeem, your expiry date will add one month.
