Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get all the information for the articles?

Our editorial team has a high affinity for Internet culture. We know where to get serious information and can classify what is valuable information to our end users. That’s why most of our work goes into research.

Who is behind DigitalCultures?

Some copywriters who spend more time on Reddit, Twitter & Co. than showering. So why not collect that abundance of knowledge in an online dictionary.

Why do you have a rainbow flag in your logo?

Because we stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ community; as well as any other “minority” who often get in trouble – especially online. We don’t care who loves who or believes in what – the internet is for everyone!

Why does your site look like from the Windows 95 century?

Primarily we are not concerned with looks, but with content. Our experience also shows that a modern design does not necessarily enhance user experience. But who knows, maybe we’ll move into the current century with SL at some point!

What distinguishes you from other slang dictionaries?

First and foremost, the fact that we work editorially and intentionally do not let the users write their contributions. We want to become THE serious source for good, reliable information about memes, slang and other parts of internet culture (…if we are not already).

Why is the content growing slowly?

As previously mentioned, there is a small team behind SL. But this is a side project for all of us. We are very passionate about it, but we only have a limited amount of time per day.

How can I suggest terms, memes, emotes etc. that you don’t find in SL yet?

On every page you will find the green “Add term” button in the upper right corner. Use it to suggest a term that you would like to have explained.
