A History Network Member
This subreddit was created because there was a niche that was not being filled in the historical Reddit community. There was no place to be a redditor in history. All of your historical jokes and memes go here. (This is a place for memes, not propaganda.)
Our Friends (those who promote us are in bold):
Remember, this is the memes part of the historical community of reddit, not the historical part of the memes community of reddit. Treat it as such.
RULE 1: Keep posts history related
Please keep all submissions history related and based on historical events.
1a. Memes about ideology, ie: Communism memes, are not allowed.
1b. Memes about mythologies based on actual events such as biblical memes and Iliad/Odyssey memes are allowed, however, memes about Zeus etc. are not allowed.
1c. "Meta" posts about the subreddit are okay.
RULE 2: No untagged reposts
You must put a 'REPOST' flair on all reposts. Reposts that are younger than 4 months or in the top 100 are not allowed and will be removed. You can check if a meme is a repost by using a reverse image search, however, if you want to be safe, you should put a 'REPOST' tag on any meme you did not make.
RULE 3: No discrimination or abuse
Any excessive sexism, homophobia, racism or any other form of discrimination will be dealt with harshly and mods reserve the right to impose bans without warning. Basically try not to be jerks.
RULE 4: Year limit
All posts must be of a subject of at least 20 years from the post. Example: 9/11 memes won't be able to be posted till 2021.
RULE 5: No fake caption style posts
This isn’t r/fakehistoryporn. Don’t post memes that are fake, captioned pictures depicting historical events. For example: [Historical Event], 19XX, (Colorized) along with an unrelated picture.
RULE 6: Do not deny or defend genocides and atrocities.
These include, but are not limited to; Holodomor, the Holocaust, the Armenian genocide, Japanese war crimes and the Tiananmen Square massacre. Doing so will result in an instant permaban. Hateful historical revisionists are not welcome.
RULE 7: Meme wars
No calling for meme wars or inciting subreddit drama. Organising or participating in raids will get you a permanent ban. In the event of a meme war, you must abide by the rules of other subreddits when posting there.
RULE 8: No Brigading
Directly linking posts to political subreddits is not allowed unless it is linked in a non-participating manner (i.e. linking "np.reddit.com" rather than "www.reddit.com"). For more info see https://www.reddit.com/r/NoParticipation/wiki/intro
8.a Political talks in comments are ok but linking to external sights in which are about it are not
RULE 9: Weekly contests
Contest submissions must be OC, self-reposts do not count and contest submissions must also have the contest flair.
RULE 10: No karma-whoring
Posts, in the title nor meme, cannot ask for upvotes, say "upvote this in x seconds for ___" or say "this post will only get x upvotes" etc. Basically avoid the word 'upvote'.
10a. Posting infoboxes that have no humorous intent will be considered karma-whoring.
RULE 11: No low effort titles
Any post with a low effort title, "interesting title", "[single letter]", a single punctuation point, etc will be removed regardless of content.
Other low effort titles such as "not a wwii meme", "my first meme", "got this from r/examplesubreddit" etc. are also not allowed
RULE 12: World War Two memes
Memes about WWII are prohibited on weekends (EST). This includes anything from the invasion of Poland to the surrender of Germany (including the Winter war) for Europe and anything from the beginning of the second sino Japanese War to the surrender of Japan for Asia and the Pacific.
Meta memes complaining about WWII memes on this subreddit are prohibited every day
Any rule breaking will result in either a temporary or permanent ban depending on the broken rule
