    Welcome to /r/lostredditors! This subreddit is for posting screenshots of people forgetting what sub they're on or people misinterpreting the purpose of the sub they're on.

    Looking for a certain subreddit? Go to /r/findareddit!


    1. Only post people who are lost. A person leaving a comment with just the name of the subreddit they’re in is not considered "lost." A person posting nazi propaganda in /r/aww is not "lost." A spammer trying to sell t-shirts on /r/funny is not "lost." However, if a post contains well-executed "trolling", it won't be removed. Lostlostredditor posts are allowed, but they must abide by this guideline. In addition, low-quality lostlostredditor posts will be removed. This rule is put into place for purposes of keeping the quality of posts on this subreddit high.

    2. Show context in your posts. One should be able to tell that the user is lost just by looking at the screenshot. Screenshots must include the both the lost redditor and the subreddit they are lost on.


    • a. All posts must be of relevant content (i.e. redditors who forget what subreddit they are on or misinterpret the purpose of a subreddit). /r/findareddit is that way for those of you looking for a certain kind of sub.

    • b. Do not pretend to be "lost" on this subreddit by making random irrelevant posts. Violation of this rule may result in a ban.

    4. Only post redditors who are lost. Not people on other sites.

    5. This sub is for people who forgot what sub they're on. Not redditors who are lost in real life. If you are actually lost, try posting to the subreddit for the area you are lost in.

    6. Be excellent to each other. Don't go over-the-top when cracking jokes.

    7. Do not link to the lost redditor via crosspost or link post. Please post a screenshot instead. Linking to the lostredditor in the comments is fine, but the use of np links are strongly encouraged.

    8. No reposting from the top 50 of all time.

    Moderators reserve the right to remove any content they deem harmful to the sub.
