Memes in the "real world" aren't just lists of questions. I think things other than that could be called "Scratch Memes" we need to expand this article Demosthenes 03:26, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, where did this "question" idea come from? Wikipedia: "The term "Internet meme" refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet."
I think, also, that the article has the wrong focus. Instead of talking about projects that are intended to provoke remixing without necessarily any interesting programming in them, e.g., "Add your name and remix," the emphasis should be on situations in which someone has a good idea and embodies it in a project, and suddenly everyone wants to do that. The canonical example is sideways scrolling, I think. —Brian Harvey (talk) 04:46, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
- I agree that it would be nice if more people engaged in remixing that focuses on programming (e.g. forking or templates), however, one of the goals of the wiki is to document what people are actually doing on the website. The article should document the wide range of memes that exist, including but not limited to, "add your signature" projects. Perhaps you could add some less known memes that you think are interesting? --

Could you explain more about why you think this image is relevant? I guess you can always add stuff if you think it's important. The nice thing about the wiki is that it can be reverted.
This image shows projects tagged with the word 'meme'. This shows the great diversity of memes, I believe. I'll put it in. ~Aidan 21:33, 30 June 2010 (UTC)
