Frequently Asked Questions

What is Lamebook? What is it all about?
Lamebook is for fun and the name says it all: We post lame and funny pictures, status updates, and other gems found on your favorite social networking site. Lamebook started in April of 2009 by two Austin Texas based graphic designers and has been rapidly growing since then.

Wait. Why isn’t everything on this website lame?
The point of the site is to gather pretty much anything and everything lame AND funny, but we know the name can be confusing.

This is really mean. Why?
We’re not out to hurt anyone’s feelings, but more people think that this website is necessary than not. Plus it’s a reminder that maybe you shouldn’t have posted it on the internet in the first place. Internet etiquette, people.

How often do you update?
We update every weekday, about 6 times daily. Yeah, that is a lot of lame.

What is “State Your Status?”
This feature allows you to write on our wall! Tell us what you are up to, how you feel about something, really whatever the hell you want. If we find it site worthy, we will put it up.

Why don’t you post a Lamester everyday?
Because sometimes we go drink beer instead. You should buy us one.

Why in God’s name would I donate money to you dudes?
Running a frequently updated blog takes time, effort, and money (for hosting, merchandise and contests). We want to continue to bring you the lamest and funniest content we can find and donations help us do this. To make a donation please click here.

How do I submit to your website?
You will learn everything you need to know about submitting here. Or just click the giant red button on the top right. Please read the instructions.

I don’t know how to do a screen shot or “screen grab.”
Directions here.

Should I send the message in a word document?
Good Lord No. Do you know how long Microsoft Word takes to open on a Mac? We won’t open the file if it is not in graphic formats including JPG, PNG, PDF, and even GIFs. (Bitmaps will most likely need to be emailed to submit@lamebook.com.)

Can I write for you guys?
Sorry. We got it for now.

Do you guys search out these people or are they mostly submitted?
Every entry from our website is submitted. We don’t have some extraordinary access to the world’s profiles.

I just submitted. How come my submission isn’t on the website???
Patience. We get literally hundreds of submissions weekly. It’s quite a bit of reading. Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that your submission will be posted, but all submissions are greatly appreciated! If you think it is worth our while, try submitting it again, we might have missed it.

Is it possible that some posts are fake or authored?
Sure. But as long as they bring the funny, it’s all good.

Can I link to you guys?
Of course. Spread the lame love.

Why do your posts read from top to bottom?
We edit them so they are easier to read.

My post is more than one screen shot, what do I do?
Just send ‘em all in. We will piece them together.

Why are my comments not showing up in the comments section?
Stop spamming our readers or trying to promote your website, then try commenting. We also don’t allow racial slurs or (some) offensive terms. Links to people’s FB profiles will always be screened as well.  Also, if you link YOUR OWN FB page in your Lamebook profile, your comments will most likely be held for moderation. But why would you want all of these strangers visiting your FB page anyway??

I saw this really funny post and now it is gone. Where did it go?
Most of the time it is because the person featured asked for the post to be removed. Please do not attempt to try and contact the person that is featured on Lamebook. Remember in elementary school, when the teacher would say “you are ruining it for the entire class.” That is exactly what happens. They get pissed and ask us to take it down. So PLEASE, DO NOT make any attempt to contact those featured on this website.

Why am I hearing audio and/or getting so many pop-up ads?
You shouldn’t be! Sometimes people (or “a-holes” as we like to call them) hack into advertising networks which may affect our website. If you ARE experiencing any problems please let us know and we will look into the issue ASAP.

Hey, I saw a website like this already.
Yeah, they ripped us off.
