ANNOUNCEMENT: WE KEEP REDDIT ALIVE, BUT REDDIT IS TRYING TO KILL OC. ENOUGH. GIFFERS, TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL

ANNOUNCEMENT: WE KEEP REDDIT ALIVE, BUT REDDIT IS TRYING TO KILL OC. ENOUGH. GIFFERS, TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELLMy name is elfa82, and I'm here to tell you three things:

a) Unlike all of you memers and reposters, HighQualityGifs does not live on its knees. Reddit will lift all restrictions on us, or we'll make absolutely sure this is the beginning of the end for Reddit: memers and karma whores can't stand themselves. All karma whore communities die.

Without us, there'll be nobody to produce OC and Reddit will be branded as an extreme-repost shithole. Trust me.

b) We bring massive amounts of traffic to Reddit and we get shit on in return by the hysterical /sub/alls through their sockpuppets and by the meta-hating admins. We receive death threats, we get doxxed and branded like Jews in a Warsaw ghetto with mass taggings.

c) Giffers: you have just as much right to submit OC gifs anywhere on Reddit as everyone else. We urge all of you to do this as much as you damn well please. And when you're done, make more.

The modteam and myself have decided we will no longer accept living like slaves to karmawhores on a powertrip.

Here's what we currently have had to accept from the admins:

We must block all mentions of other subreddits (while cancerous users like /u/gallowboob links to content he finds on other sites and from several retard subs with impunity).

We are no longer getting responses from admins (while they're busy cozying up to pathetic default subs like /sub/gifs, /sub/pics and other disgusting types who have control of 15 Million+ users).

Our music videos are artificially shot to the top of YouTube, only to be removed for copyright claims – no other sub has this.

Admins purposefully shirk their duty to protect our mods and users from doxxing and harassment. Direct calls for OC have been stickied for 2-3-4 days on reactiongifs and places like /sub/nometa with admins' knowledge and no action – Trust & Safety team my fucking ass. You should be ashamed of yourselves and karma will hit you.

Admins have been accused of being the sources of meta in the past.

If we don't do as they say, they go on Discord to boss us around. We used to have a Slack like many other big subs, but after we repeatedly asked them to stop doxxing us, they stopped responding to it. Now they have only Slacks with their karmawhore friends.

The CEO himself harasses our subs by pretending he’s a mod. Steve Huffman ... what a pathetic loser you are. That's right: /u/spez is a cuck. If this hurts your fee fees, feel free to edit it in the database, Steve...AGAIN!

Closing remarks:

This mod cannot be threatened. I have AfterEffects and PhotoShop and I'd love to show any one of you my skills.

I'd like to thank all users and moderators who spent so many hours fighting the good fight. You are part of something special.

I love all of you. We won Best Gifs on Reddit together and we'll win many more in the future.

MAKE GIFFING GREAT AGAIN

elfa and the modteam

Here's the archive of this to keep Spez from editing it. Spread it far and wide. Breitbart, Infowars, FOX and every Youtuber you know - PewDiePie, SargonofAkkad, StevenCrowder - anyone fighting the fight against reposters.

Lol what is happening

Edit: I figured it out for anyone out of the loop. The _Donald currently has a post stickied on the top of their sub that talks about the admins censoring them bla bla bla. This post (on hqg) is making fun of the post on t _D. If you want to see the original, you have to go to t_d.

edit edit: The post is now deleted, and the user that posted is is apparently banned from reddit for 3 days. Here is the subreddit drama thread if you want to follow

https://www.reddit.com/sub/SubredditDrama/comments/6c05td/following_suspicions_admins_are_changin...

and from the outoftheloop thread

https://www.reddit.com/sub/OutOfTheLoop/comments/6bzv8v/whats_up_with_rthe_donald_leaving_reddit/

They targeted giffers.

Giffers.

We're a group of people who will sit for hours, days, even weeks on end performing some of the hardest, most mentally demanding tasks. Over, and over, and over all for nothing more than a little digital token saying we did. We'll punish our selfs doing things others would consider torture, because we think it's fun.

We'll spend most if not all of our free time masking the outlines of a fictional character all to draw out a single extra point of karma.

Many of us have made careers out of doing just these things: slogging through the grind, all day, the same requests over and over, hundreds of times to the point where we know every little detail such that some have attained such giffer nirvana that they can literally pop out gifs blindfolded.

Do these people have any idea how many keyboards have been smashed, systems over heated, disks and carts destroyed over frustration? All to later be referred to as bragging rights?

These people honestly think this is a battle they can win? They take our meta? We're already building a new one without them. They take our karma? Giffers aren't shy about throwing their money else where, or even making the content our selves. They think calling us neckbeards, metalovers, dickbutt apologists is going to change us? We've been called worse things by prepubescent 10 year olds with a shitty tumblr gif. They picked a fight against a group that's already grown desensitized to their strategies and methods. Who enjoy the battle of attrition they've threatened us with. Who take it as a challange when they tell us we no longer matter. Our obsession with proving we can after being told we can't is so deeply ingrained from years of dealing with big brothers/sisters and friends laughing at how pathetic we used to be that proving you people wrong has become a very real need; a honed reflex.

Giffers are competitive, hard core, by nature. We love a challenge. The worst thing you did in all of this was to challenge us. You're not special, you're not original, you're not the first; this is just another copy pasta.

...BUT I SUPPORT HQG TO THE END

Thanks for some context, I was kinda lost here...

I don't know what's happening but this is fucking beautiful.

I don't know what's happening

Wow you're already living in the T_D experience

If you want to see the original, you have to go to t_d.

Not worth it.

No I still employ patience, politeness, logic, and rational discussion when at all possible. But to the situation at hand, I am very much dumbfounded so I can see the comparison.

T_D is the laughing stock of Reddit

True nimble animators don't need context. So low energy. SAD!

This is so, so good.

I actually believed it up until I read a comment. Fuck me I'm not upto date

...that still sounds like an insult

Idk, /sub/incels also exists

He looks surprisingly good as a disgusting monster.

It wasn't an insult more like a "this comment is literally T_D embodied into a sentence 140 characters or less"

lol omg

I have that filtered out so I couldn't go there even if I didn't want to.

America First

T_D is having a meltdown because they were using bots to artificially inflate posts so they would reach the frontpage quickly, and the admins responded by setting the karma of the botted posts to zero. They think they're being oppressed and are threatening to leave and go to Voat.

I say good riddance. They can take their xenophobic bullshit with them.

THIS GIFFER IS A PREDATOR

Drop the "the." It's cleaner.

I get anxiety when I just say 300 because I can't capitalize the 3.

Lot of overlap there.

The ones that accept it anyway. The ones who would rather do writing prompts to their own dicks go to redpill.

I was thinking the same, but if you look closely, you'll see that the monster's hands are too big for it to be true.

Ahhh good try, I ain't going to t_d.

There is only one way to feel about this

I'll have the fish

I bet you did......

Oh, thank God it's satire. I was genuinely worried that HQG was suddenly and inexplicably going to shit.

I. . . I don't know what I would have done with my life.

Wait, was that edited? I thought that was just real life footage

What can I say, I'm a sucker for good copypasta

Shit, I gotta watch The 300 again.

I'm not sure. But since we're trying to be Reddit archeologists experiencing the culture of T_D I'll give it a go.

Gif? No, Jif! Praise PePe LePew.

No brakes on this Toyota

ANGRY TEXT!11

so. so. so fucking good.

(what is the word for people who just add a few more words to a previous comment for emphasis? can we call them hop-ons? cuz everyone knows you' re going to get some hop-ons.)

yeah, but I needed a household name.

What are you talking about, just hold shift and press 3.

#00

Edit: I suck at formatting

IT. I used to be with it, but then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me.

Jesus Christ, this sub is so close to being labeled a terrorist organization by Homeland Security.

But not to the person he's saying it to, I think.

Ya'll are glorious assholes and I love you.

And Voat just announced they ran out of money, and will therefore be shutting down unless someone throws money away bails them out.

Blocked t_d so long ago that any meta about them is totally lost on me...

That was the best redditing I've seen in months.

"lol omg" shall be our warcry

This mod cannot be threatened. I have AfterEffects and PhotoShop and I'd love to show any one of you my skills.

I died

I quietly whisper his name in my household all the time

I used the stroke effect

It is happening.

Image format? Gif with a Letter J Compliment Skunk

I believe it's satire directed at The_Donald and their threat to leave Reddit. One of their mods made an announcement acting all pissy and righteous. /sub/outoftheloop has more info about the T_D shitshow. Here's the original text:

My name is OhSnapYouGotServed, and I'm here to tell you three things: a) Unlike all of you shitlibs and globalists, The_Donald does not live on its knees. Reddit will lift all restrictions on us, or we'll make absolutely sure this is the beginning of the end for Reddit: shitlibs and fat SJWs can't stand themselves. All SJW businesses die. Without us, there'll be nobody to shill against and Reddit will be branded as an extreme-SJW shithole. Trust me. b) We bring massive amounts of traffic to Reddit and we get shit on in return by the hysterical elites through their sockpuppets and by the San Francisco-dwelling admins.

i had forgotten about them

IT'S IT! What is it?

We are Marshall.

Good morning. In less than an hour, user from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest meme battle in the history of memekind.

‘Memekind.’ That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Meme of May, and you will once again be fighting for our memedom … Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution … but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist.

And should we win the day, the Meme of May will no longer be known as an internet holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive!’ Today we celebrate our Memependence Day!

I very nearly unsubscribed.

Lol, that is true

So tony, how did you get the... bracket thing to expand like that?

LOL OMG

"Writing prompts to their dicks" lol, nicely put

u/gallowboob loves HQG though

Has it been confirmed that the admins set the karma to 0? I thought it was just everybody else downvoting when a donald post when it popped up on /sub/all.

Everyone knows I'm a great source of meta. They all say so.

Holy fuckshit. I thought shit was about to hit the fan. Better cancel that bucket of popcorn I ordered

What is 'it'?

Source​?

I WILL GO DOWN SCREAMING I DONT POST HERE, BUT THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL THEY CAN TAKE THE ONE STILL GOOD SUB FROM US.

That's what I did whenever I saw one :)

you're just jealous cause i've been chatting online with babes, all day

I couldn't tell if it was legit or just more meta than usual.

Nonsense. Trump doesn't use sentence structure.

insert "nice" gif here because I can't make gifs because I'm a lurker

Am....am I on another fucking list now?

God damn it /u/elfa82

I saw the exact same thing in /sub/the_donald. Huh.

How do I filter out the dozens of anti trump subs that pop up constantly... I just want a no politics filter

Me too thanks.

Leeches?

Oooooh, keen observation

Youuuuuuu want it all but you can't have it

Was that a... Faith No More Epic lyric?

Come back with the OC or on it, warrior.

300

The single greatest thing i've ever seen.
