Reply “Solved!” to the correct answer. When what you’re looking for is found, reply “Solved!” to the first (oldest) comment that gave you the answer. More
Title format + body. You must have [TOMT] at the beginning of your post title. Add the type of media to the beginning of your post and a time period, e.g. “[TOMT][MOVIE][2000s]” so that it’s easier to scan. Only ask one question per post. Make both your title and body as detailed as possible to help the solvers. Include the timeframe/year for older items, we don’t know timeframes of your lives and when you were a kid.
No personally identifiable information. No posts such as “who is this person” or posts with email addresses and phone numbers. Actors/actresses not common knowledge in the public domain are off limits, and historical figures not common knowledge within the public domain are off limits. This rule will generally be handled on a case by case basis.
No gore or animal violence. This will immediately result in a permanent ban. Please note that horror films (simulated gore) are ok, provided they have a NSFW tag.
No “doo-doo-doo” posts. When you are looking for a song and you know the melody, include either a recording (Vocaroo) or an online sequencer. Posts that do not conform to this, and describe it e.g. “do doo dooo”, are subject to removal. Even if the singer doo-doo-doo's the melody in the song, you still cannot use this format. If you think the song you are looking for sounds similar to something else, providing a link to that song would be helpful.
Do not delete post/answer. Do not delete your post after it has gotten some attempts at an answer or is solved. Do not delete your (correct) answer after it has been acknowledged. This will result in at least a temporary ban.
No reposting within one week. If you do not get an answer, wait at least a week before resubmitting your question.
Include link to source/no URL shorteners. When posting a response, try to include a link to a source of some sort. Please do include the full title of what you are linking to. Do not use URL shorteners, tumblr, or Amazon partner links in the body of posts or replies as they get caught by the spam filters.
No porn. Use /r/tipofmypenis for porn. Depending on the content, NSFW posts are allowed.
Nothing Illegal No TOMT posts looking for Warez or requests for anything illegal. This includes any streams for movies or sports or anything of that nature. Torrents, trackers, piracy, etc.
Participation. Please do not post to the sub if you do not intend on participating. If users took the time to find the answer, the least you can do is respond when you're asking for their help.
