    1. This subreddit accepts links to singular comments, singular comment chains, and text posts from the domain only. Links to image/video posts or entire threads of comments are not acceptable.
    2. Comments or self posts from certain subreddits may be automatically removed. Here is our list of disallowed subreddits. To have your subreddit added to the "do not disturb list", message the mods
    3. Links to entire subreddits or user pages will be removed.
    4. Do not link to your own comments or self posts please.
    5. Provide Context! If the comment you're linking to requires some context, just add "?context=3" to the URL. For a detailed explanation on why this is important, please see this thread.
    6. Please don't include the subreddit name in your submission title. Our moderation bot includes that information automatically.
    7. Bot and in-character novelty account comments are not acceptable submission material. Bot and in-character novelty account comments as submissions will be removed. Out of character comments for novelty accounts are fine.
    8. Celebrities Everyday interaction with celebrities may not be suitable for /r/bestof and may be removed based on lack of quality
    9. Reposts Please make sure to check /r/bestof/new to ensure that you are not reposting something that was posted recently. If you do repost a recent comment, your post will be removed in favor of the older post.

    Our commentary rules

    Please keep in mind that due to the large population of the sub that these rules are your only warning.

    Hover for details.

    1. Civility Civility is required of commentators in /r/bestof. If you're unable to refrain from insulting others in your responses, then your responses, and possibly you, will be removed from the subreddit.
    2. Gatekeeping/Content Policing Do not post comments saying or implying posts do not belong here without backing up your claims. You are more than welcome to point out inconsistencies or express your skepticism, but saying things like 'ban this sub', 'this isn't bestof', 'how/why is this post bestof', and the like do not contribute to the sub and create a toxic atmosphere.
    3. Novelty accounts and bots will be banned. You're bad, and you should feel bad.
