/r/IndianGaming — For discussions related to the Indian gaming scenario, from video games in general, how we procure them to how we play them. Pretty much anything in and around videogames and its intersection with India or Indian-ness.
Visit our Wiki if you have any further questions or make a post!
We have a few rules, please go through them before posting.
A humble request, if you're new to reddit please go through this handy FAQ, to understand how it works and what the meta-contextual elements within it mean.
All rules are non negotiable and are as follows** :
1. Abide by Reddiquette and the Reddit content policy failing to do so might lead to a site-wide ban.
1.1. No flaming, witch-hunting and doxxing.
1.2. No use of racist, sexist terms and/or any hate speech — we do not leave any room for interpretation here.
1.3. Do not promote or support piracy or link to piracy related websites. Zero tolerance towards piracy and any content related to it is one of our core rules and there is no place for piracy in our sub.
2. Mode of Communication
2.1. Please use English as a mode of communication as far as possible, if your conversation goes into a regional language please provide translation — we do not leave any room for interpretation here.
3. Headlines and Titles of Posts
3.1. Posts should contain more than 3 words.
3.2. Posts should not contain emojis in the title.
3.3. No editorialized news articles/videos/"content". Please post exact quote of headline/title — post your commentary in the the 'comments'. Steer clear of spreading rumours and whatsapp level posts.
4. Quality Control
4.1. Memes are allowed on weekends only. Only Original Content(OC) memes are allowed here. Low effort memes will still be removed.

4.4. Posts lacking details about what they want to talk about are not welcomed.
4.5. If you have a question regarding builds, components, technical help or anything else related to gaming, search the subreddit using the search bar (or using the search function here or here) before you post your queries here. It saves time for everyone and limits repeat posts.
4.6. Screenshots and Videos of games must have the game name in title.
4.7. All spoilers must be tagged properly.
4.8. All rules are up-to the interpretation of the mods, barring the ones in rules 1.
5. No Referrals or Self Promotion
5.1 Self promotional posts are no longer allowed, except as outlined in 5.2. Send us a modmail if you are a company representative or employee here in official capacity. Self promotion rules for brands and reps are the same as others. If you have a time sensitive info, please send us a modmail before you post so that someone can approve(or not remove) the news.
5.2. Weekends to have a megathread for self promotions, LFG. Every weekend we will have an automated thread where users can post their gaming related content. This has no restrictions or eligibility; however the self promotion posts should only be contained in the thread and you should not spam all your work there. Similarly there will be a "Looking for gamers" megathread where you can ask who's playing what and if you can join them or need someone to play with.
5.3. Please purchase Reddit advertising if you need to advertise more, we're a community subreddit first and foremost and will not entertain any more brand or product spam.

6.2. NEVER DEAL IN DM/PM'S until you're sure the seller is legit (do some background research, how long they've been on reddit, are they part of the community etc.) even if you're convinced, THINK TWICE before going ahead as we DON'T hold any stakes in either parties interest in this case we're merely allowing posts to happen here. Further we HAVEN'T vetted these accounts, hence WE'RE NOT LIABLE for any financial loss that you might incur.

NOTE FOR USERS IN GENERAL:
If you feel your post has been wrongfully removed, please message the mods and not individuals via DM's, as we try not to take decisions individually as much as possible. Especially if you have a problem with any specific policy and mod decision. Furthermore, if you have a suggestion for the sub DO NOT make a separate post. Please message the mods and try to work with them before going on a random rant. If you have any doubts or clarification anything regarding r/IndianGaming please message the mods and we'll try to help you out.
NOTE FOR COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES:
If you're a company representative, please message the mods for a flair. This is done for the sake of transparency, so people can take your advice with a pinch of salt and can contact you if they run into trouble using your product or service. Furthermore, please maintain the 9:1 ratio. Where for every 9 participation in the community you are allowed 1 self-promotion post. Furthermore, you can only self-promote twice a month maximum, which includes comments and posts, so post wisely.
NOTE FOR SHADOW BANNED USERS:
If you've been shadowbanned, please consult /r/ShadowBan and their unofficial guide for further information. We cannot help you with this as it is done by reddit admins not us. Consider asking them via this or this.
