- Abandoned Modules: The major problem with Drupal is that modules that get replaced by an entirely different approach which really sucks. In the early days of Drupal, most site buildings were done by people programming custom modules on top of the Form API and the various other parts of the Drupal internals. Enough of these were generalized and shared back to the community that the next phase was characterized by thousands of single-purpose modules -- install exactly what you need for each feature you want to provide and perhaps need over a hundred on your site.
- Media Management and Modules: The most obvious problem Drupal face is the lack of Media management in Drupal’s core. Media Manager is absent, so mastering videos, pictures and other media files in poor to say the least. Because of that, many users prefer WordPress and other E-Commerce platforms, because they are tired of uploading the same image again and again.
- Drupal Community: One of the main problems is that Drupal users are not as active in the community as they should be. This in activeness slow downs the problem-solving process for the Drupal experts.
- Efficiency: The major reason for Drupal’s inefficiency is Caching. Caching is how it gets around the memory hogging problem and lets your site load quickly but it also means that sometimes things don’t get refreshed when they should be.

Wii Remote Wrist Strap refers to the strap attached to game controllers for the Nintendo Wii intended to prevent players from accidentally releasing and potentially throwing the controller. Years after the console’s release, jokes about the dangers of playing the Wii without the wrist strap began appearing on Reddit.
The Nintendo Wii was released on November 19th, 2006. The console came with motion controllers which in certain games, such as Wii Sports, would require a player to move the controller as one would an object like a tennis racket or baseball bat. Because of the danger of accidentally throwing the remote, the Wii came with wrist straps one could attach to the controller and place around their wrist to prevent the controller from being thrown and accidentally causing household damage.
Jokes about the Wii Remote Wrist Strap appeared in early image macros. For example, an Insanity Wolf joke about the Wii Remote has appeared on Meme Generator. Though the post is undated, it references Just Dance, a video game which came out in 2009, suggesting it may have been posted around that time.
In 2015, after Katy Perry’s performance at that year’s Super Bowl, several internet users noticed the wrist strap attached to her microphone resembled the Wii Remote wrist strap. A thread about the similarity posted to /r/wiiu on February 2nd, 2015, gained over 6,200 points (shown below).
In January of 2018, jokes about the Wii Remote wrist strap began appearing on Reddit. It appears they got their start in Star Wars meme subreddits. A popular variation of the meme posted to /r/prequelmemes on January 17th, 2018 gained over 6,900 upvotes (shown below, left). On January 22nd, 2018, a Wii Remote joke was posted to /r/sequelmemes and gained over 15,000 upvotes. The format also grew popular on /r/dankmemes. On January 22nd, 2018, an inquiry about the uptick in Wii Remote jokes was posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop.

On December 26th, DigitalizedOrange republished the post to the Garlic Bread Dating Simulator-themed subreddit /r/GBDS, where it accumulated upwards of 19,900 points (72% upvoted) and 160 comments in 29 days. That day, a post about the cryptocurrency was submitted to Steemit titled “Garlicoin, the new MemeCoin?” Also on December 26th, Redditor AlexanderSalamander submitted a fake tweet screenshot of Elon Musk claiming “I’m selling all my #bitcoin for the launch of #garlicoin” to /r/garlicoin, where it gathered upwards of 1,400 points (95% upvoted) within one month (shown below).
On January 12th, 2018, Redditor SuperficialPickle444 submitted an image macro of the Garlicoin logo captioned with “Upvote Garlicoin / And someone will deliver you 100 garlicoin at launch” to /r/garlicoin, where it accumulated more than 54,600 points (77% upvoted) and 48,000 comments within 11 days (shown below). That day, the /r/GarlicMarket subreddit was created for trades of the cryptocurrency. On January 13th, 2018, the Garlicoin.io website was submitted to /r/Buttcoin, where the top comment described Garlicoin as “the next Doge.”

That day, the GarlicTip Reddit account submitted a post claiming to be a “tip bot” that required karma “to get pas Reddit’s Api limits.” Within 48 hours, the post gained upwards of 49,700 points (68% upvoted) and 1,700 comments on /r/garlicoin.
Object Labeling refers to the practice of creating image macros in which subjects of a specific image are labeled to create a humorous interpretation of the picture. Similar to exploitables, Object Labeling involves changing a picture in various ways to make different jokes. The practice began seeing use in meme making in the mid 2010s, as several meme formats from the time employed object labeling.
The practice of object labeling can be traced back to political cartoons, an artform where it is common practice to label objects in an effort to make a political point. The first political cartoon published in the United States, Benjamin Franklin’s “Join or Die,” was published in May of 1754 and features a disconnected snake, with each section labeled as a different American colony (shown below). Franklin’s point was that if the American colonies did unite, the nation would not succeed.
One of the earliest known Object Labeling memes came during the Console Wars of 2012. On June 5th, 2012, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) was held in Los Angeles, California, where Microsoft unveiled several upcoming games and new features for the Xbox 360, Sony presented new games and updates to the PlayStation and Nintendo showed titles for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. During the conference, many animated GIFs depicting the three companies engaging in battle (shown below) were posted in a thread on the NeoGAF Forums.
Object Labeling became more popular in the mid-2010s, as several memes created from 2017-onwards involved changing a picture by labeling objects in pictures different things.
One of the first memes to start the Object Labeling trend was Respect Women. Respect Women is an image macro series featuring pictures that are ironically captioned with jokes about how the subject represents their “respect” for women.
Cracking Open a Cold One With the Boys
Cracking Open a Cold One With the Boys is a copypasta about drinking beers with a group of male friends which is often used to caption various image macros circulated within ironic meme and circlejerk communities online. Many of the images created for the meme involve labeling different images to create a “cracking open a cold one with the boys” joke.
Distracted Boyfriend, also known as Man Looking at Other Woman, is a captioned stock photo series in which a man looks at the backside of a woman walking by while another woman, presumably his romantic partner, looks on disapprovingly. Many variations of the meme involved labeling the different characters in the photos different things.
Sniper Elite Headshot
Sniper Elite Headshot is an image macro series featuring an exploitable screenshot of a bullet flying at a soldier’s head in the 2017 shooter game Sniper Elite 4, which often represent the soldier and bullet as opposing forces. Nearly all the variations of the meme involved labeling the bullet and head in the original image different things.
Today, 73% of all online stores just run on three platforms: Magento, Woocommerce, and Shopify. No matter, Drupal being the second most-used open source website content management system. But still, the analysis shows that Drupal appears nowhere even once.
Shopify the leading e-commerce solution* – an amazing tool that helps you build high-performance E-Commerce websites within hours. When we look back at past few years we realize that Shopify has enjoyed the explosive growth, which is a vivid sign of assurance that Shopify isn’t going anywhere. Shopify saves our clients with simpler needs time and money and speeds up their time-to-market by orders of magnitude over traditional commerce systems. Interestingly, Shopify recently launched a new enterprise platform called Shopify Plus targeted at high-traffic enterprise stores. They clearly aspire to break out of the low-end market.
_*Differences between Drupal and Shopify
Shopify is a complete e-commerce solution that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods. It lets you organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders -- all with a few clicks of the mouse. It is a cost-effective, compelling commerce platform for clients with modest annual revenue or for teams that don’t need custom integrations with other systems.
Drupal has emerged as a powerful PHP-based open source content management system. This user-friendly platform has millions of worldwide user base across many industry verticals. It helps better publish, manage and update website content. Whether you want a personal blog or an enterprise-grade website, Drupal delivers!
Drupal is a highly secure and scalable framework that is easy to use. It has numerous features and add-ons that further improve its functionality. This open source framework does not require any license and you can simply plug-in and get started. Drupal has the right combination of power, flexibility and is great as a development platform. Also, it offers the best custom theme development features in the industry.
User Experience: When it comes to user experience Shopify is ahead of the game as for Shopify it is 2% to 3 % more than that of Drupal.
Serving needs of a low-end market: Here, also Shopify earns more points as It’s in heavy growth and market adoption phase.
Overall Comparison Score for Drupal and Shopify: If we give Shopify and Drupal overall Score out of 10 then for Shopify it will be 9.8 and Drupal it will be 8.0.
Some of the Challenges that one faces with Drupal:
Now the number of modules you need is getting far less -- we have a more general purpose, extremely powerful modules like Views, Rules, Display Suite, Features, and Context. As a result, the single-purpose modules are becoming obsolete, and developers pretty much abandon them.
What charms Shopify?
Everything works great together for Shopify. Here, is where all the beauty lies
N-number of Payment Gateways
User-friendly and simple to use as you can get your website ready few clicks of mouse
For Shopify, there is good amount of Professional Support and Easy Backend Administration
There is option of lot many built-in tools like a blog, coupon codes, upsells, cross-sells, analytics and many more
SaaS is the Future!
Drupal is still alive but SaaS platforms like Shopify and BigCommerce are built in an orderly fashion that caters to the needs of the majority of the users. They define a generalized structure for their system. One way it is good, we can have a stable and robust system.
From all the above points maximum votes are in favor of Shopify as it caters the needs of the low-end market.

Hot Take is a slang term used to describe short, oftentimes controversial opinions on the internet.
Merriam-Webster says that while term began appearing online in the mid-2010s, it saw use as early as 1993. Merriam-Webster points to an article in Rolling Stone which quotes political pundit and advisor James Carville:
“The hot take on Clinton by the electorate is that this guy’s out there busting his can. The BosNyWash puke-funnel view of the world is entirely different and entirely wrong.”
Jack Posobiec is a right wing activist, conspiracy theorist media personality and provocateur, often associated with or accused of being in the alt-right community.
Anti-Star Wars sentiments had been spreading since Rogue One screenwriter Chris Weitz tweeted a few days after the 2016 United States Presidential Election that Star Wars was against hate and pointed out that the villainous Empire is a white supremacist organization. This angered white supremacists, who had threatened to boycott the film. The rumors of the boycott and the hashtag “#DumpStarWars” began to spread when Trump supporter Jack Posobiec tweeted the hashtag along with an unsubstantiated claim that Star Wars writers had rewritten and reshot the film to include scenes that called Trump a racist.
Doxing of Roy Moore Accuser
On November 10th, alt-right media personality Jack Posobiec was reported to Twitter for reportedly doxingJudge Roy Moore’s sexual misconduct accuser.

Within 10 minutes, the tweet (shown below) received more than 245 retweets and 960 likes.
On November 4th, alt-right Twitter personality Jack Posobiec continued the association between Papa John’s and the alt-right by serving the pizza at his wedding rehearsal dinner. He tweeted a picture of Papa John’s pizza with the caption “Rehearsal dinner with Papa Johns!” The tweet (shown below) received more than 420 retweets and 2,600 likes.
Online, people mocked Posobiec for having fast-food pizza at his wedding rehearsal dinner as a means of “owning libs.”

On January 24, 2018, Twitter user Vivian “incantatricks” tweeted an image from a “right-wing traditionalist blog” that depicts a modified version of the character “Penny” from the video game “Fortnite:”
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">imagine thinking that a character who actually looks realistic is “Tumblrized” <a href="https://t.co/uM9r79GVwy">pic.twitter.com/uM9r79GVwy</a></p>— Vivian (incantatricks) January 24, 2018@

Due to a glitch, certain audio clips said by the in-game announcers would be much louder then intended. They would be extreamly loud and hurt the ears of players.
