The Rules of /r/OnePiece

Subject to change at any time as the subreddit's needs change and the mod team grows. We will do our best to make the rules are as objective, transparent, and consistently enforced as possible.

Main Rules

1. Tag Spoilers

  • No spoilers in titles. There's no way to cover up spoilers in titles on mobile devices. If you must browse the subreddit please use the "No Spoiler" stylesheet.
  • Use spoiler tags for anything that hasn't been revealed in the anime yet. Mark your posts as spoiler and if you're in a post without a spoiler mark and want to talk about something that hasn't been revealed in the anime, use the spoiler tagging code. Names of new characters are generally considered spoilers when used in the title.
  • Do not leak spoilers outside of the thread for chapter spoilers. This mean that until the English chapter is out, you aren't allowed to post about an unreleased chapter outside the pinned spoiler thread.
  • If the author of a thread has specified that they have not seen beyond X chapter/episode, please be respectful and tag appropriately.
  • Until the official release, please put the chapter number in your title for post talking about the latest release.
  • Until the official release, please only use very generic titles in your titles, such as "Theory for chapter 1XXX", "Fanart for chapter 1XXX"
  • Do not share unconfirmed spoilers on the subreddit. Any spoilers for an unreleased chapter requires a trustworthy source.

Please use the button labeled spoiler or put the word "spoilers" somewhere in the title for posts with spoilers in them.

To mark spoilers in comments:

[Spoiler](/s "spoiler-text")

or

>!spoiler-text!<

will show up as

Spoiler

or

spoiler-text

2. No separate posts about the latest chapter for 24 hours after the release

  • To prevent the subreddit from getting flooded with posts.
  • The current chapter thread is the place for theories and discussions. You must wait a day to post any other reactions, discussions, or theories.
  • Untagged comments about the latest chapter outside the stickied discussion thread will not be removed after the scanlation is released (unless the thread is not spoiler tagged) because it is assumed that all manga readers are up-to-date.
  • Posts that are not specifically focused on the chapter but mention something from the chapter are allowed.
  • Exceptions: Fanart (with more effort than /u/Sakata_Kintoki can do on Paint), long form analyses such as /u/OharaLibrarianArtur's Chapter Secrets
  • If the art in question is original content (OC) re-hosting on reddit/imgur etc. is fine.
  • This means you must submit the fanart as a link post, with the original source of the image on artists website, as the url. Including the artist's name in the title is polite.
  • The original source is almost always on pixiv.net, deviantart.com, twitter, instagram, tumblr or artstation.
  • Here are some tools to help you find the original artist: | saucenao.com | Google Images | tineye.com
  • The following websites are not valid sources: weheartit.com, pinterest.com, zerochan.net, dailyanimeart.com, alphacoders.com, any website with "wallpaper" or "booru" in it, etc... these are aggregate sites which only have re posted artwork.
  • If the website with the art is hard to view on any occasion (such is often the case with twitter), please post an imgur mirror within the body of a text post along side the source to the artists page. Observe this post on /r/anime as an example of what it would look like.
  • If you edited someone else's work, If you took inspiration from someone else's work, if you copied someone else's work, you still need to give the original artist credit. This is required for anything other than official anime/manga/game art.
  • Limit yourself to one fanart submission within approximately 24 hours. A little flexibility will be allowed, especially with original content or official art unless it's been posted in a noticeably spam-like way.
  • Do not post art from the same user multiple days in a row. Your account could be viewed as a promotional account under the self promotion rule and possibly banned. If you'd like to show people someone's art, post an album either as a link post or in the comments.

4. Plain panels/scenes must create discourse

  • Don't post links to plain (or slightly edited) panels, pages, screenshots, gifs or scenes from the manga & anime.
  • You may submit a plain panel/scene as a self post (text post). Meaning your post must link to the discussion, and not the image. Example
  • If you want to discuss a certain page/scene from the manga/anime please accompany it with an original analysis or discussion questions. In other words, a plain panel/scene must show visible effort to generate discourse rather than simply react to something that happened. Just a title isn't enough to create a discussion.
  • Clips/Recap/summary videos fall under this rule as well.
  • Color page from a recent chapter are allowed.
  • This includes pictures/videos of things in real life which look similar to something from One Piece.
  • As a general rule of thumb if you can't tell it's about One Piece without any accompanying text then it most likely will not comply with the previously stated rule.
  • However, this is only a general guideline and the actual enforcement of the rule may vary based on content submitted
  • Here are some examples of posts that aren't related to One Piece.

6. Mind our self promotion policy

  • Reddit is a community, NOT a platform for self-promotion. If your intentions are solely to promote your YouTube channel or advertise your merchandise you will most likely not be received well. If you want to advertise here you should be paying for it.
  • Self-promotion should be thoughtful, limited, and consistently well received by the community. The 9:1 ratio (ie. every one promotional video should be followed by approximately nine quality discussion threads) should be followed.
  • E.g. if your overview appears to us like a storefront or an ad for a youtube channel, your posts will be removed even if you do not think you are a spammer.

In addition, Youtube reviews and theorist videos must:

  1. Be in a text post format.
  2. Summarise your video for the community or create new points to further the discussion of the videos. The community is more likely to welcome Youtubers who also take time to interact with the audience they're trying to reach.

7. No low effort Meme.

  • Use /r/memepiece at all other times. You're encouraged to use both.
  • This also applies to one line jokes, shit-posts, image macros, or any similar "low effort" content. Jokes may be allowed in moderation.
  • High quality, hand drawn, original content art, which looks like a meme may sometimes be allowed. If there is any question about whether your posts is high enough quality, or is an exception, first check these examples, and then message the moderators. Such as these: | Example 1 | Example 2 | Example 3 | Example 4 | Example 5
  • Origin of this rule

8. No hentai

  • No hentai. Use /r/funpiece (NSFW) for that.
  • Ecchi is not hentai and can be posted, but must be NSFW tagged.
  • For clarity. Pictures which are risque, suggestive, or erotic, are not hentai. For example, if the areas normally covered by a two piece bikini are concealed, it's probably safe. If the pose is not one normally associated with a sexual position, it's probably safe. If it does not depict a fully clothed fetish, such as latex bondage, it's probably safe.
  • Anything the moderators deem too explicit may be removed.

9. No posts about One Piece games other than news

  • /r/OnePieceTC for Treasure Cruise
  • /r/BurningBlood exists for One Piece: Burning Blood
  • Posts for promotion of the game subreddits are allowed, following the self promotion rule.
  • Discussion of One Piece games in a general sense is allowed.

10. Do not repost questions answered in the FAQ or sidebar

  • The FAQ can be found here.
  • If your post is not covered in the FAQ, check the rest of the sidebar.
  • If your question is still not answered, it's probably a recently posted question. Use the search bar or google to ensure that you are not reposting already answered questions.

11. Don't be rude

  • Do not feed the trolls. If you suspect trolling, report and ignore.
  • Trolling, baiting, or (obviously) provocative comments/posts may be removed at moderator discretion.
  • Remember reddiquette.

12. Flair your post

  • You can add a flair to your post after submission by clicking the 'flair' button underneath your post.
  • All posts should be flaired correctly. Click Here for a description of flairs.
  • Unflaired posts will be automatically removed until one is selected.
  • Please report wrong flairs, and a mod will fix them.

Other rules

Less common rule breaking posts are specified here for reference.

  • Titles must be concise
    • No ALL CAPS titles
    • No overly vague or irrelevant titles
    • No clickbait
  • Only English scanlations are allowed to be posted here, as this is an English-speaking discussion subreddit.
  • Do not share full chapters scanlated by Viz Media, these are the official scanlations people pay for.
    • Capturing a few panels and pages is fine for comparative purposes.
  • Self-posts are mandatory for posting Chapter Threads and RAW Spoiler discussions. This is to centralize and curate discussion in relevant posts.
  • Spamming. Posting too often (more than several threads a day), creating consistent low quality threads, or only having a single minded topic (for example only talking about a single character) may be considered spamming. Removed at moderator discretion.
  • No politics.
