Self-explanatory. Here you can talk with other anons about fills, prompts, past connections, anything related to the kink meme!

Please try to keep this post ON TOPIC to discussions related to the kink meme, like rule changes, help finding lost prompts, and questions/discussion pertaining directly to fills or prospective fills.

Your Experience on Other Memes (Compared to this one)

Delete if against the rules? >.<

Title self-explanatory. I had read many posts comparing this kink meme to others/this fandom to others, so I grew interested in everybody's experiences!

No wank, please :D (Would there be any?)

Only read, didn't write stuff on the Bleach kink meme.

It was mostly that though, kinks. Maybe I didn't spend enough time there but generally it was just pairing - kink, no prompts for stories with plot etc.

Also, a good majority of them were filled.

Hm.

This meme being my first, I've sort of come to the feeling that the rules here are pretty standard, y'know, the strictness about de-anoning, request freezes and the alike.

I spent a few days on the Glee Kink Meme... while I thought I'd go to hell around here, over there is a whole new place, haha. It feels a lot different too because a good majority of the fills and requests have users attached to them. Not saying in a negative way at all, but it was really different.

I like the anon-ity of this place a little better.

The only other kink meme I've been to was the Supernatural one, because someone I know on sfd_anon sometimes links stuff from there.

I was envious of their indexing on delicious, it was much better than anything we've got.

It's by far the most active one I've ever visitied, and for that reason, the only one that's held my attention for long. The first kinkmeme I ever followed died out after a couple months; the only other one I ever checked out lives on, but it's so small that there's only like 14 LJ pages of requests... and it's not like it's a small fandom (Kuroshitsuji).

I like this one. It's not perfect but it's good enough to keep me coming back again and again!

I lurked on the Gundam 00 meme around the end of season 1 & the beginning of 2. It wasn't near as big as this one, and had a lot more prompts like "Setsuna/Feldt, frenulum ladder." There was some good fic, but I got bored because there was very little that wasn't porn. (The RAG series was epic, though.) They had freezes too, iirc, but it was a small enough meme that they didn't need to be big or often.

About a year later I found this meme and fell in love. ♥ I adore that there's so much to look at for requests, and I love that they're not all porn - my first fill was a history!fic, and I wrote several PG-13 fills until I got the courage to post some smut. And there are so many pairings - even if A/B is the most popular pairing for A and B, there's still prompts for A/C, D/B. B/E/C, ABCDEFGH... There wasn't near as much diversity on the Gundam 00 meme, though that might be because of the size too.

So yeah, size comes with good things (diversity) and bad things (long freezes).

+1

So much this. One thing I love about this meme is that not all the requests are porn and when I first started to fill here I could not write smut at all and only now am I easing into it slowly.

The other meme I follow is the sherlock (BBC) meme which also has loads of variety for requests but I feel less inclined to request there. At the moment it's mostly reading. Also the Merlin kink meme but again, just a reader. Other memes are mostly porn from what I've seen and so they are normally smaller because there are just not as many writers that feel comfortable writing smut as there are overall writers.

The other kink memes I participate in are slower, buuuut with the added bonus of actually getting to request on them.

Ace Attorney Kink Meme:
they seem very light hearted over there in terms of pairings and requesting. Only thing that bugs me is that they don't have a rule against reposting pre-made fills to answer more than one prompt.

Badbadbathhouse (persona 4 kink meme):
They follow a trend of a series of popular pairings and is active-ish. Despite that, there's hardly any drama about "hurr this pairing is too popular" and their discussions are highly amusing.

Shirakawa Boulevard (p1, p2, p3 kink meme):
I don't really frequent this one as much as it favours p3 far too much in terms of requests and fills and I'm only there to check out if they have any p2 stuff. I find it lacks variety over there ^^;

Glee fandom:

This one is much better. There you can post repeat requests, there are freezes but they don't work, unlike the ones here, people don't stay anon... I prefer this play.

I cannot get over how organized the Merlin kinkmeme is. It's a bit daunting at first, but once you get used to the system - it's amazing! The mods are on top of everything, there is a fairly up-to-date and highly searchable delicious index of every prompt/fill, and repeat requests are refiled as "variations" of their original prompts. I'm so impressed, and I think they've single-handedly ruined any other kinkmeme experience I'll ever have!

(Plus the reader-anons are so friendly and encouraging!)

Compared to this one? DEAD. :/

To be fair, the fandom was rather deadish at the time.

Eh, this one is the only one I really access, but sometimes I have a look at the rather scarce Umineko/Higurashi kink meme. I can't really find anything to compare with, so I'll leave it at that.

The Fire Emblem one has been my home for quite some time, and basically took my kinkvirginity. I've been poking around the Percy Jackson one for a while, but haven't finished anything as of yet. I've been poking the Glee, The World Ends With You and Criminal Minds kink memes but again, haven't finished anything. Actually lately it's less kink memes and more fluff memes which have been making me hearteyes over stuff. It really makes me wish for a Hetalia fluff meme which isn't dead.
