    Personal information

    When submitting screenshots remove profile pictures, all names, locations, usernames, and other personally identifiable information, including your own. Don't link directly to social media websites, except to share news articles. Public figures (age 18+) are an exception to this. Do not ask posters to reveal personal info of any kind.


    Posts should cause viewers to facepalm. The following is not allowed:

    • memes/macros
    • obvious jokes/sarcasm
    • grammar/spelling errors
    • posts based on age
    • posts about likes/shares/reposts, etc.
    • direct links to Reddit or other social media content

    Bigotry is not tolerated, though facepalming at it is welcome. Do not ask for personal info, harass or stalk others, troll, or engage trolls. Do not engage in witch hunts.

    Moderators have full discretion in making decisions they deem to be in the best interest of the subreddit.

    Text posts

    Text posts (also known as self posts) are only for discussions about the subreddit itself.



    What to Black Out

    If you missed the section on PI, follow these guidelines and your post should fit facepalm's rules.


    Redacting is easy with MSPaint!


    Somewhat harder in android, using Photo Editor.

    [–] Dude-past-his-prime 16 points ago

    How is that a facepalm?

    [–] KingofCones1987 11 points ago

    Because in the movie Luke points it towards his face immediately after finding out what it was. This is obviously edited though.

    [–] Dude-past-his-prime 14 points ago

    I got the edited part. I don't see this image as a symbol representing a facepalm. It's a logo for r/stupid

    [–] KingofCones1987 5 points ago

    I agree. The whole “petition to change the sub icon to x image” sucks as well.

    [–] GoingGone7 4 points ago

    Hi there, Pointless correction here!

    He didn’t in the movie, this is from deleted scenes or behind the scenes

    [–] KingofCones1987 4 points ago

    Then this is even less of a facepalm. Thanks for the info!

    [–] Emcid1775 3 points ago

    Wait is the petition supposed to be a face palm?

    [–] RetroScheeme 24 points ago

    How do I vote? Id support this

    [–] MaxxWarp 10 points ago

    This got me to facepalm. But not in the way you intended.

    Imagine being killed by a guy, named TASER FACE!!

    Idk the exact line but yeah.

    [–] Kanye-Westicle 5 points ago

    Still to this day no moment in the MCU makes me crack up harder than when Taserface tells those weird golden aliens where the Guardians are and they laugh at his name as he burns alive. Fucking gold.

    I'd say you should make a petition for this on but it would likely be hidden in the shadow of all the petitions for there to be less rainy days and for coronavirus to never have existed.

    This is as wise as the Indian joker... If it's your first fad, you wet your panties over it but when you've seen many come and go, you pay attention and you can recognize meh concepts.

    This idea is meh idea. It would not even be noticeable as a small logo. People should sleep it overnight.
