    Hey! I'm trying to make some advertising for my humor site. So i uploaded an image to 9gag, with my sites watermark in lower right corner. Now 23 hours later, that image has 2300 points and basically hitting front page soon, but they have _removed_ my watermark manually? This really sucks, anyone have an explanation? Do they really have time to do stuff like this?

    Just wanted to express my anger, and i would love to get some advertisement tips for a humor site, which works almost like 9gag.

    What do you mean with "before they go live"? I've posted 4 images, 3 which still have a watermark, the third one which went viral the watermark is gone.

    ..before they go live?

    I don't see what answer you're trying to get here, you're shutting down everything anyone says to you..

    Anyway my bet is they have an algorithm which says what photos that are rising quickly etc (automated), then they check and remove for watermarks on those (manual)! Seems like a much more efficient way for them than worrying about every image

    that's really frustrating man. :( If you really have funny content(original) then you should create a brand name for yourself and a good looking site for it. It would be the best solution for the long run, but if you want fast money without doing much work keep doing what you're doing now. :)
