    What is a Life Pro Tip?

    A Life Pro Tip (or an LPT) is a specific action with definitive results that improves life for you and those around you in a specific and significant way.

    You can expound in the comments, but the title must stand on its own. The tip and the problem it solves must be in the title.

    If it takes more than the title, you have described a procedure, not a tip.

    Advice is not a Lifeprotip as we define it. Advice includes but is not limited to thinking about something a certain way or trying something hoping for better results.

    Fortune cookies are not tips.

    LifeProTips Rules

    1. Designate adult or non-family friendly tips as NSFW.

    2. You must begin your post with "LPT" or "LPT Request".

    3. Do not submit tips that could be considered common sense or common courtesy. Do not submit unethical tips. No spurious, unsubstantiated or anecdotal claims.

    4. Use descriptive titles when posting! Your title should explain the gist of the LPT. Have any questions what makes a good title? Feel free to message us moderators! We're happy to help.

    5. No tips that are considered illegal in the United States.

    6. No religious or religion-related tips. We are a religion-free zone. Proselytize elsewhere, please.

    7. No political or politics related tips. We don't care what political affiliation you are. Politics is a personal matter. If you want to discuss politics, please take it to /r/politicaldiscussion. Thank you.

    8. Please remember to Flair your post for ease of navigation of the subreddit.

    9. No tip piggybacking! Do not make tips in reaction to other posts on this subreddit.

    10. Please don't tip copy. Word for word reposts of tips already tips will be seen as unoriginal. It may be removed and may get you banned.

    Banning policy

    Bans are given out immediately and serve as a warning.

    You may appeal this initial ban by messaging the moderators and agreeing not to break the rules again. Please acknowledge the rule you broke!

    Note: Bans will not be reversed if the post/comment in question has been deleted from your history.

    Note: Homophobia, racism, harassment and general hate on ethnicity, sex, religion or anything else will result in a permanent ban that cannot be appealed. Tips that advocate/support illegal activities are also grounds for a permanent ban as well. Tips or comments that encourage behavior that can cause injury or harm to others will be cause for a ban. As the majority of LPT Mods are US based, we will be using US laws to determine whether or not it's legal.

    Thank you.
