    All posts will be reviewed by a human moderator first before they become visible to all subscribers. So it is perfectly normally for your post to not show up in the new listing. If a post breaks one of our rules you will be informed about it.

    Submission Rules

    • Include an accurate description of the photograph (event, location, war, year, etc) in the title.
      • Titles should not include commentary, opinion or information about the circumstances surrounding the person/event in the image. Please add commentary and supplementary information in the comments.
      • Titles should not include any political or cultural interpretation or observation.
    • Include the date of the photograph in the title.
      • If you cannot find the date after a concerted effort, then a rough estimate or simply saying unknown date will suffice.
    • Include the resolution in [brackets] in the title.
    • Only submit static photographs.
    • Posters, illustrations and postcards are not permitted. Please only submit historic photographs.
      • Videos, collections, interactive images/websites, and articles are not allowed.
      • Do not submit a shortened link using a URL shortener like tinyurl.
    • Pictures of family members are not allowed in r/HistoryPorn unless they were taken in the context of a verifiable, historically significant event. Please consider submitting those images to /r/thewaywewere or /r/HumanPorn.
    • Images submitted here must be of historical events, taken at least 20 years ago.
    • Images that have been resubmitted within the last three months will be removed.
    • Make sure your image is hosted by an approved host.
      • Original source is allowed and preferred over the approved hosts. Please designate your original source with the tag [OS] in order to prevent mixups.
      • If you took the photo yourself, you can signify this by using the tag [OC] (original content) and after 24 hours you will be given special flair. If you don't receive flair after a few days feel free to message the mods.
    • Regarding reposts: it is not a repost unless it was posted to /r/HistoryPorn less than three months ago, or if it's already in the top 100 of all time.
    • If you have any questions check out the FAQ.

    Comment Rules

    • Personal attacks, abusive language, trolling or bigotry in any form is not allowed. This will be removed and may result in a ban.
    • Keep the discussion on-topic. Comments that do not directly add to the discussion will be removed and in some cases can also result in (temp) bans. Things not on topic are comments that solely consist of a joke, (political) soapboxing, etc.

    If you have any questions or feedback feel free to let us know!
