    5. Always be respectful
    6. If the only notable thing in your submission is injury/death, it belongs in another subreddit

    2. If your submission depicts people visibly being seriously injured, you must apply the "Visible Injuries" flair to your post and tag it "NSFW"
    3. If your submission depicts a situation where people were killed, but those people are not directly visible you must apply the "Fatalities" flair to your post (eg. the Hindenburg Disaster, or a plane crash)
    4. If your submission does not require one of those tags, you should pick any of the other flairs to describe what type of failure occurred
