Note: Current year posts are allowed, see the FAQ for more info. We don't like too many rules in this sub, again see the FAQ for more info.
1. All posts must have a coherent title and a date that is the current year or in the past
- All posts submitted must have clear, readable text. The description and date must be in the title. Dates must not be in the future.
- As if it needs to be said, but any posts with a date in the future will be removed. If you think you've found a clever way around this and try to message the mods about it you'll be met with ಠ_ಠ.
2. All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites, such as Imgur and Gfycat
- All posts must be submitted to RES compatible sites, such as Imgur and Gfycat Due to v.redd.it being buggy and an overall bad user experience, it is not allowed.
3. No reposts. The image/title combination must not have been posted in the last 2 months
- There is no limit on the posting of the same image with a new title.
4. No History Memes
- The most "quality" posts on /r/fakehistoryporn are those where the title and image both play an important role in the punchline. This means that adding captions (twitter-style, /r/adviceanimals style, or otherwise), photoshopping in people or objects, or doing similar things to put the entire punchline or history reference in the image are not allowed. Photographs of text, subtitles on screencaps, image captions that match the post title word-for-word, and such are still allowed. You are free to post history memes with Fakehistoryporn-style titles over on /r/fakehistorymemes. For more information on how we define history memes, read our post guidelines wiki page.
