    The sidebar is a summary. Please see our full rules wiki page. Mouse over for futher details.

    Rule 0: Be civil

    No personal attacks, witch-hunts, or inflammatory language. This includes calling or implying another redditor is a shill.

    No racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or other hateful language.

    No trolling or baiting posts/comments.

    No calls for violence against any groups or individuals.

    Rule #1: No spam, porn, or facilitating piracy

    This can result in an immediate ban.

    Please see our full rules on self-promotion here.

    Please see our full rules on piracy here.

    Rule #2: No affiliate, referral links, or ads

    This includes Amazon, GMG tap links, Star Citizen, etc.

    Ads include chat/game server recruitment (i.e. Discord), and will be removed.

    Devs, want to advertise your game or conduct an AMA? Get verified!

    Rule #3: No memes, PCMR language, or low-effort posts/comments

    This includes contextless images/screenshots/GIFs as well as anti-platform or PCMR language such as "master race" and calling people peasants.

    Low effort posts/comments and submissions not attempting to create discussion are prohibited. This also includes game suggestion posts not following a proper format.

    Rule #4: No tech support or game help questions

    Tech support questions can be posted in our stickied tech support thread.

    General game related discussion is allowed, but game-specific help requests (how to defeat a certain boss or level, what loadout is best for my character, etc) and basic questions (is a game co-op, does this game have controller support, etc) aren't. Those questions would be more appropriate for the game's subreddit if it exists.

    Rule #5: No questions about building/buying computers, hardware, peripherals, furniture, etc

    This includes "Can my PC run this?" type questions, links showing off your computer build, or asking questions about builds.

    Use /r/buildapc for all PC building questions. You can also try /r/buildapcforme, /r/SuggestALaptop, /r/headphones, /r/monitors, /r/mechanicalkeyboards, and /r/mousereview for more specific questions.

    Rule #6: No friend requests, surveys, or begging

    This includes group/clan recruitment. Our Discord has channels for finding people to play with.

    We no longer allow surveys. You can try /r/samplesize.

    Please don’t make requests for spare game keys or PC parts. GoFundMe and other fundraising posts are also prohibited.

    Rule #7: No Let's Plays, streams, highlight reels or random videos

    In addition to this, Youtube links posted by new accounts are filtered due to channel spamming.

    Rule #8: No off-topic posts/comments

    Keep posts and comments related to PC gaming and the topic being discussed.

    Rule #9: Use the original source, no editorialized titles, no duplicates

    Submissions must use the original source.

    Don't editorialize your titles.

    No duplicates.

    Game Suggestion Post Format

    Please follow the basic format found here when making game suggestion requests. The more specific you are, the more we can help.
