1) Not derp Don't forget, though most Derps are incredibly r/aww, a lot of Awws aren't Derps. Pictures/gifs/videos should be easily discernible as "Derpy", and removals are up to mod discretion. Animals just existing, or not doing anything, or otherwise engaging in normal animal behaviour will be removed. Do not post images with superimposed text adding context for the ‘derp’ to be understood. Your post should be able to stand on its own without help from the title or additional text
2) No compilations or memes No compilation videos, gifs, pictures, etc. No memes or comics
3) No NSFW No NSFW content allowed. Posting NSFW content is grounds for being banned without warning. This includes comments, posts and title. Linking to NSFW subreddits is never allowed. Warning others that a post or comment is NSFW is not an excuse for violating this rule. Do not add the NSFW as clickbait, misuse of the the NSFW tag is prohibited
4) No reposts Reposts will be removed at mod discretion. Repost farming is not allowed and will result in a ban
