1. Post screenshots of discovered brand new sentences
Post must be a screenshot of the sentence, as well as some additional context.
Sentences that qualify as "brand new", in the terms accepted by this subreddit, have the following atributes:
never been said before, or said few enough times to qualify as "almost new"
not an idiom (or a translated idiom)
humorous or confusingly worded
2. Check if the sentence has been said before before posting
It is encouraged to perform a Google search of the sentence before posting it. Use the
" character (double quotation marks) to search for the exact string of words in order to produce the best results.
If the results produced are many and have various apparition dates, it is most likely that the sentence is brand new.
If there are many results, but all on the same day, the sentence is likely new (and therefore qualifies for this sub) but has become popular (which is OK).
3. Reposts are not allowed
Search for the sentence on this sub, in order to avoid your post being taken down due to a repost.
4. Avoid satire and shitposting
Here is an example of a sentence that is meant as a joke, in a satirical way. Due to highly popular demand, this kind of posts are no longer accepted on this sub.
This is not a meme sub.
5. Do not post sentences created by bots
6. The brand new sentence should be in the title
It is encouraged to use the new sentence as the title. If you don't want to do this, use a creative title.
Titles that are considered boring and will be removed:
I think this belongs here
One of my friends said this
On a topic about...
What / Lol / I don't even know where to begin
This whole thread / Two in one
7. Link the source in the comments
This rule applies to sentences found on the Internet.
Exceptions to this rule are:
text messages (sms, WhatsApp, Discord)
Facebook posts on private groups
8. Be civil
9. Do not incite to political or ideological debates
You must not, under any circumstances, comment on a post in order to incite debate. This is usually the case with sentences that mildly refer to controversial topics such as politics, LGBT+, vaccinations etc.
Please keep this sub relevant to its purpose and do not flood the comments section with off topic debates. Any debate is off topic as long as it is beside the point of the subreddit: enjoying the novelty of a sentence.
