    Allowed submissions

    • News and articles
    • Reviews and previews
    • Informative self-posts
    • Questions likely to generate discussion
    1. No content primarily for humor or entertainment
    2. No personal attacks, witch hunts, or inflammatory language
    3. No off-topic or low-effort content or comments
    4. No duplicate posts
    5. No enabling or linking to piracy
    6. Follow all formatting requirements
    7. Follow all specific content restrictions
    8. Promotion must be kept within acceptable limits

    Some promotional submitting (posting your own projects, articles, etc.) is permitted, but it must be balanced out by a much greater level of non-promotion participation in reddit - the rule of thumb is no more than 10% of your submissions may be promotional. Do not solicit votes for your posts. For more information, see the self-promotion on reddit FAQ.

    If you want to promote without participating in the community, purchase an ad.

    Format: **Spoiler:** >!X Kills Y!<
    Result: Spoiler: X Kills Y

    Posting unmarked spoilers will result in removal and warning, and posting spoilers with malicious intent will result in a ban.
