/r/AdviceAnimals rules: Please read before submitting or commenting
Rule 1: Reddit's site-wide rules
Click Here for reddit's 6 rules.
They are all pretty straight forward and easy to understand, but if you would like more information about them Click Here for reddit's Frequently Asked Questions page.
Be sure to also read the rediquette which is an informal guide to reddit etiquette.
Rule 2: Don't be a jerk
We're here to have a laugh; hate speech, bigotry, and personal attacks are not allowed.
Death threats and telling others to kill themselves will result in a ban.
This is pretty self explanatory.
Rule 3: Follow the correct format
Two line joke over a re-usable character.
We understand that some established memes do not follow this format, such as
However, these memes are already well established and thus have been grandfathered in.
Not all image macros are memes
an element of a culture or system of behavior that may be considered to be passed from one individual to another by nongenetic means, esp. imitation.
Basically if the image is only relevant to one's own submission and can't be re-used (or has limited re-usability) then it's just an image macro and by definition not a meme.
Memes are allowed on the subreddit here, while generic image macros are better suited for /r/funny.
Rule 4: Don't repost
Don't post stuff you found from elsewhere on the web, it's probably been here already.
This subreddit is for original content only, meaning memes YOU made.
Do not resubmit your post because it did poorly.
Reposting is a bannable offense.
If you see a repost please report it as such, and send a quick note to the mods if you can.
Rule 5: No Cake Day Posts
Cake Day posts are not allowed.
Posts that mention Cake Day in the title, or in the post itself will be removed.
Rule 6: Verticals, Puffins and Batman Slaps
Please do not post Verticals, Opinion Puffins or Batman Slaps.
Verticals are multiple panel memes or image macros and both are better suited for either /r/funny or /r/vertical.
This also means posts such as 9/11 Lois aren't allowed; and memes such as Nobody cares Nedry and Confused Gandalf are limited to their 1 panel standard, instead of their alternate vertical counterparts.
2 AdviceAnimals in a vertical are OK.
Meaning combining 2 established memes together such as Socially Awkward Penguin and Socially Awesome Penguin is fine.
Here is an example of its acceptable use
Rule 7: Link directly to your image
Make sure you link directly to your image.
In other words, not just to the website, or the gallery page.
Here are a few examples.
- Not OK.
Rule 8: People you know
Don't make memes with pics of people that you saw in real life. Ever.
Don't try to make yourself or someone you know into a meme.
Also, we do not allow witch hunts on the subreddit.
Rule 9: Use an approved host
Shortened links, Facebook, Tumblr, Blogspot, etc, will be automatically removed.
Please use one of the approved websites listed on the sidebar to make your post.
Rule 10: Mods have the final say
We reserve the right to remove posts, remove comments, and ban users at our own discretion.
Due to the nature of the subreddit, interpretations of what is a meme and what is an image macro sometimes have different opinions and thus decisions have to be made.
Always feel free to message the moderators if you have ANY questions!
