An anon meme is a community where nearly all posts are anonymous. It can be a kink meme, a commentfic fest that is entirely anonymous, or it can be for anonymous comment discussion.

Discussion memes can be fandom-specific like spnpermanon or multifandom but focused on a particular topic such as fail_fandomanon. Some memes are defined more by the style of conversation and might be hate memes or love memes or capslock communities.

In some memes, thread titles are strongly encouraged so that readers can use flat view to see the responses as they come in, and changing thread titles is strongly discouraged for the convenience of tracking!nonnies[1] and flatviewers.

Terminology

Many anon memes have developed their own vocabulary & abbreviations

  • nonnie or nonny - a participant in the meme (initially mainly in SPN fandom, use has since spread)
  • nona - anonymous participant at sfd-anon
  • mouse/mousie - a participant in the meme (short for anonymouse)
  • AYRT = Anon You Replied To
  • DA = Different Anon; "I am a different anon from the one you're replying to."
  • NA = New Anon; "I'm a new anon who has not commented on this thread before."
  • SA = Same Anon; "I'm the same anon, replying to my own comment to edit/elaborate."
  • A!A = Author Anon; "I'm the author of the commentfic, responding to feedback."
