It's a running joke on MLB. Always something wrong with moderation. Sometimes there is and sometimes not. Like perfectly good titles changed to something weird or some types of submissions are featured too much like "that's my pony". So, mainly a joke I think. You'd have to ask other opinions :)
You sound like you're in some sort of control, are you a mod? If so could you possibly bring this up. You'd be real hero. Or at least propose a new section similar... I wish I could send a letter with my proposals, but I don't know who to talk to.
It's not getting traffic and receiving too many downvotes because of the excessive pop memes! If you allowed user submissions and added genres rock as rock, electronic, punk, and classical, even country, the site would be extremely popular. Why isn't that obvious?
I heard a rumor that musicfails is closing. WHY? I know Master and I have been negatively commenting on almost every pop meme, but its more because there's a lack of rock, metal, electronic, country, classical, jazz, punk, and basically every genre that isn't pop on here... I wish user submissions would come back, are you sure MusicFails has to shutdown instead of revamp?
I hate that the site is oversaturated with pop memes, most of which are just awful. This is especially true with Miley Cyrus memes. If someone has a funny pop meme, by all means post it, but most of them have been god awful. Also, my other problem is that user submissions rarely make the front page or even the vote page, I'd definitely like to see more user generated content like there was before.
