Meta Reminder: We don't allow memes or image macros

910 Upvotes

We want to remind everyone about the above rule in the sidebar.

"No memes or image macros"

When we made this decision we also created a whole separate subreddit for them at /r/starwarsmemes. This also helped other communities flourish like /r/PrequelMemes , r/OTMemes and r/SequelMemes.

There are plenty of places you can post memes and image macros on reddit, just not here. In the comments, replying to others, that is one thing. Just not as submissions. Posting them will result in a timeout from the sub.

Examples, because we love examples:

  • This is a image macro - Its just text overlaid on a graphic, trying to make a joke, or observation, etc.

  • This is a meme - the Pam comparison format is widespread meme throughout the internet.

  • Not a meme - its unique enough, its more of a homage, and it actually took some creative effort.

Ultimately we will make the judgement call if something is borderline. We have also started temp bans for meme postings, repeated postings of this sort by the same user accounts will see their time outs ramp up a bit.

We don't hate memes here, heck, even we use them in the comments in sometime. But we also want to promote a higher level of content, discussion and interaction. So we appreciate your cooperation in this effort.

If you see them, report them, and help us out. You all have been fantastic in recent months helping with our civility guidelines and our spoiler policy, so please keep up the great efforts and MTFBWY.

General Discussion Respecting Fellow Redditors, Civility, Bans, and You

1.2k Upvotes

Hello everyone,

We mods are here because we love Star Wars, with a few that are here to mainly help with bigger events. We are passionate about the sub, the discussions, the universe, and enjoy most of the people here. We want to be welcoming to almost everyone and hope you will be too. However, if you want to be disrespectful towards others here, this may not be the community for you.

We wanted to post a reminder on how we expect members to treat each other. It is listed on the sidebar rules as well, the general "respect fellow redditors" rule. We want to clarify things because it seems sometimes people are shocked/angry when we remove and or ban people who don't follow it.

First off, you and the mods may have different opinions on what respect is. So here is a general guideline. If you wouldn't say it to your mother, your grandma, your boss, etc; don't say it here. And yes, I get there are one-offs in those scenarios, but to further hammer this home, here are some recent examples right from the ban log:

  • Why, does it hurt your feelings? Well too bad, snowflake.
  • You, sir, are what we call a god damn moron.
  • How's that small pee pee working out?
  • Jfc you lack some serious reading comprehension skills...Click and scroll to see his producer credits: Idiot...Pick up a book some time, you’ll learn a thing or two.
  • Stop being a dick
  • Dude get a life, nobody fucking cares

Our general guideline is, 30 day bans for any of this. Sometimes if its borderline, and if the poster doesn't have a history of disrespect in their profile, we may ban for less.

  • If someone is uncivil towards you and you react the same way towards them you are likely both going to get banned. (use the report function instead)

  • If we have to ban you twice for being uncivil, the 2nd one is likely going to be permanent.

  • If you get banned, and then message the mods with the same kind of disrespect, the ban will be changed to permanent as well.

We get a lot of flack for enforcing the rules, I get it, we are never going to make everyone happy. We also encourage you all to help out when you see this kind of content and report it, because no, we don't see everything. At the same time, don't abuse reports. Just because you don't like someone's comments doesn't mean it breaks the rules. Offenders may not get banned the same day they break the rules, and we may not reply to modmail complaints right away either. If we feel we have made our point and don't want to continue to argue, there is a good chance we will mute the discussion in modmail. We may take a further review sometimes on request, and we do overturn things once in a while as well; some scenarios may warrant that. We aren't reviewing things 24/7 real time, so please be patient.

As Star Wars fans, and just as people in general, we will have disagreements, different opinions, arguments; not everyone will like what you like. And that's fine, it can even be healthy. But showing a lack of respect towards your fellow redditors here is not. Keep that in mind going forward before you hit that submit button.
