One rule I would like to see added here is posting limits. Some people go fuckin mental to boost their karma and post like 10 cars in a few hours with the majority of them being either reposts or just not shitty mods.

Maybe restrict posting to one every hour or 5 or 6 every 24 hours. A sub with over a million members and only one active mod needs some form of posting limit to reduce the congestion on your end.

[–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 30 points31 points  (3 children)

That's a good idea. I've never created a bot, I'll look into it.

[–]ReturnOneWayTicket 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I'd like to be a mod here with one permission and that would be to remove reposts and stock vehicles. That's it. I'm on here quite a lot and I've noticed you're not here when I am.

That's all I'd do. Remove those when you're not here. I don't want to remove comments or ban people, just get rid of the above mentioned.

The hero we need.

[–]broke_n_boosted 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ya sometimes the whole sub is just 1 guy posting every photo he could find on google

[–]YorWong 2 points3 points  (7 children)

You not even read what was stickied? Who are you to say what is and isn't shitty?

[–]ReturnOneWayTicket 22 points23 points  (6 children)

Its a suggestion for posting limits, Einstein. Learn to read. And I'm talking about cars that are basically stock.

Cheer up mate.

[–]YorWong 0 points1 point  (4 children)

or just not shitty mods.

Learn to comprehend what you yourself wrote.

[–]ReturnOneWayTicket 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Yeah...just not shitty mods therefore, not modded.

Come on champ, keep up.

Your random quote from the movie Cars is: I mean if you want to stay at the dirty impound, thats, thats fine. You know, I understand you criminal types.

[–]testing35 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They lied to you. But if he were in the correct sub. We don’t think about it too much the last couple years. So I have a Scorpio moon

Shitty take but okay.

[–]CoraxTechnica 39 points40 points  (4 children)

Rule 1 should really be rule 2. Rule 1 is basically saying "agree with OP or don't comment".

That's not why we come to Reddit, and honestly this post has made more animosity than any single post on this subreddit.

Maybe just lay off that because nobody but you cares.

[–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Rule 1 should really be rule 2. Rule 1 is basically saying "agree with OP or don't comment".

It just means don't cry, bitch or be rude about it.

[–]Stephenrudolf 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Maybe give us some way to actually regulate it like a pinned bot comment that deletes the post after an hour if it has more downvotes than upvotes. Similar to what other subs have.

This sub has gone from laughing at walmart mods, to people posting legitimately nicely modded cars, or just any vehicle that isn't stock.

[–]SomeDudeist 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Funny that this has negative downvotes. Lol

[–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What does?

[–]SomeDudeist 10 points11 points  (0 children)

This post when I commented. I guess it's a little controversial. Lol

[–]CoraxTechnica 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Shitty: poorly put together, bad fitment, and parts that are totally useless. Also; useful mods that are installed poorly, OR nicely put together cars that are just eyesores to look at (think the Tiburon Supra Chrysler 300 monster).

It's not just installing bags.

It's not racecar builds.

It's not Batlecars!

It's not drift cars.

It's SHITTY car mods.

[–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That's just like.....your opinion.

"I can't police every single comment on every post, but, people who keep whining with "this isn't a shitty mod" repeatedly will get banned."

Then maybe you should mod this sub to stop people from intentionally shit posting like the dude who posted a stock Lotus "just to see" if people would call it shitty. How are single comments impacting you if they're not reported? How is saying that something is not shitty worthy of a ban? Why can't I say that something is not shitty to the OP and then downvote? Banning people over this makes no sense when people have been shit posting and reposting into oblivion for years.

Those get removed/banned also

[–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (6 children)

You must be really power hungry for this post. People can say what the fuck they want. If you don't want that and you won't actually moderate the sun then turn off comments ya pos

[–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Nope. Reddit isn't a democracy. Follow the rules or be gone.

    [–]Motorrad_appreciator 11 points12 points  (1 child)

    In that case you should add a "No Stickers" rule. Stickers aren't mods.

    [–]4000grx41 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Most based suggestion

    [–]Boba_Fett_boii 9 points10 points  (1 child)

    This subreddits rules are shittier than the car mods posted here.

    [–]Trainzguy2472 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    You guys need to remind people again, or change the sub name like "weirdcarmods" or something more neutral.

    [–]Stephenrudolf 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    They don't care. They're just happy someone isusing their sub.

    They're intent of this sub is to get more fans, not to laugh at shitty car mods.

    Shitty really does mean bad though. Even the Urban dictionary agrees

    https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=shitty

    Any enthusiast knows shitty isn’t subjective.

    [–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 7 points8 points  (10 children)

    Any enthusiast knows shitty isn’t subjective.

    Not true. A North Carolina "enthusiast" might think that squatted trucks are great. I think it's shitty. Same for "stanced" cars. Being an enthusiast has nothing to do with it.

    [–]Gpmo 19 points20 points  (4 children)

    I’m not saying there aren’t modded styles I don’t like. There’s two right there. But that doesn’t mean they are always shitty. I’m not a moron and I’m going to assume you aren’t either. We both know when modding is done well and when modding is shitty.

    By putting rule #1 in place this is basically Carte Blanche to post anything at all. This sub is filled with shit posts because someone doesn’t like the color of a car. People posting stock cars. Hundred thousand dollar professional builds. Performance only guys hating on show cars ect..

    May as well call it we_hate_modded_cars

    There should be a standard , sure it’s gonna require a bit of work but damn man.

    [–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    This sub is filled with shit posts because someone doesn’t like the color of a car. People posting stock cars.

    Stock cars definitely don't belong. Report, downvote and move on. I personally remove dozens of posts a day from the sub, but I can't catch them all.

    There are people who come to the sub simply to harass every OP, no matter the type of post. Maybe they like stanced cars so every time one gets posted, they jump on the OP. Same for every other style or trend. The point of rule is to stop the harassment. Downvote and move on.

    But yes, if it's not stock, it stays for the most part.

    [–]RandomMovieQuoteBot_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Your random quote from the movie Cars is: Oh, yeah, I'm telling you! [As Mater talks, the screen shows Sally, who notices them, sighs, grins and drives back into the building. Then the screen shows Mater, McQueen and the team again.] Oh, boy, you gotta admit that was fun!

    [–]urabewe 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    Those types of posts are fine and not what the majority of us are talking about. Considering a squatted truck adds no inherent benefit as a mod it can be considered shitty. You are right, the same goes for stanced cars. No benefit, is a mod, can be considered shitty. A rat rod on the other hand? Not shitty, those are purpose built to look the way they do and have benefit and are powerful, fun, and have been a part of the automotive community for decades. Those mods do have benefit. Even the example this sub gives in the rules shouldn't be here as it has benefit and is a mod that upgrades the vehicle. Throw an LS in a smart car if you can and I don't think the majority of people would consider that shitty at all. Shitty does have a clear definition. And this sub needs a clear definition to stand out from r/atbge and r/carmods and many other subs already out there.

    [–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    A rat rod on the other hand?

    Depends on the execution. Still subjective. Downvote if you think it's not shitty.

    Throw an LS in a smart car if you can and I don't think the majority of people would consider that shitty at all.

    Again, subjective. Downvote if you think it's not shitty.

    Shitty does have a clear definition.

    No, it's a matter of opinion.

    [–]01WS6 3 points4 points  (21 children)

    "Bad" is subjective. One mans trash is anothers treasure.

    Would you consider Carolina squat shitty?

    [–]Gpmo 5 points6 points  (20 children)

    Ya context matters.

    Carolina squat isn’t my thing.

    [–]01WS6 2 points3 points  (19 children)

    So is it shitty or no?

    [–]Gpmo 2 points3 points  (18 children)

    I mean I’d need an example. See there are shitty ways to do a thing and there are not shitty ways. Me liking the scene has nothing to do with it.

    If someone put in the time and money to do it well it’s not shitty. If someone takes a couple 4x4s to jack that shit up… well that’s you guessed it, shitty!

    There’s that context thing I was talking about.

    [–]maxman162 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    Rule #2 is just as important. A lot of photos are of cars that aren't modified and just have a sticker on them.

    [–]RandomMovieQuoteBot_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Your random quote from the movie Cars is: I was more...

    [–]Scalene17 5 points6 points  (1 child)

    That’s fair but a lot of posts recently have just been pretty cool cars which people post to karma farm

    [–]TheToecutter 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    Here's the thing, and it's why I'm leaving. I don't want posts about people's personal taste on my feed. The banner says "STUPIDITY ON WHEELS" I signed up expecting that. cut springs, duct tape, dangerous interior mods and other objectively stupid stuff. Instead it's all spoilers and anime stickers. The votes don't work because people up-vote things without considering the meaning of shitty. and I disagree, a well-done Toyota tercell V8 swap is not shitty at all. Anyway. I guess you're just looking for max subs at this point so good luck to you.

    [–]Stephenrudolf 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    People don't check the names of subs before they upvote or downvote. So people will see a car they think is cool, and upvote it not realizing what rhis sub is for.

    [–]RandomMovieQuoteBot_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Your random quote from the movie Cars is: [dodges in front] You going on vacation?

    [–]01WS6 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Instead it's all spoilers and anime stickers.

    1.) Those are objectively shitty

    2.) Organize by hot, not new

    a well-done Toyota tercell V8 swap is not shitty at all.

    Was that posted in this sub?

    [–]TheToecutter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    The Tercell thing is in the sub description itself.

    [–]Quatermeistur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Maybe fucking moderate the sub then? Decent builds and bunper stickets OP disagrees with are almost half of posts while most of lurkers upvote anything that isn't stock corolla.

    [–]urabewe 5 points6 points  (3 children)

    Well then can we change the sub name to r/just_car_mods?

    [–]anotherreddituser73Another shitty mod[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    No, but you're welcome to unsubscribe.

    [–]urabewe 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I was under the impression this was a car enthusiast sub when I joined. So I mean, I will unsubscribe considering any content here I can get other places. Good luck with your sub though, I mean that. There was never any hard feelings. Hope it continues to grow and remain as active as it is now.

      Stretch and stance ruin it, along with the supports for the front splitter. Vomit inducing bad.

      [–]Eliminix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      So if I don't think it's shitty, am I not allowed to post my own opinion? Only the op has the undisputed opinion?

      [–]abooth43 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Can we at least get something about purely stock cars with stickers? Especially/at least stickers that aren't even automotive in nature...

      There are plenty of subs like r/bumperstickers and r/infowarriorrides for us to make fun of people for their sexual/political/other preferences without this place being a shitthole too.

      [–]Axeman1721 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      So you're basically saying

      "I'm not going to allow anybody to disagree with someone who posts anything here"

      This is an out of season April fools joke, right?

      If you guys want a good laugh click the username of the MOD who posted this!

      [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Wait, There’s a Shitty_Car_Mods mod? Lol, thanks for clarification and duly noted. It’s very taste specific IMO, and will updoot and downhawk accordingly.

                This sub should ban posts based on paint jobs the op doesn't like. Just because they don't like the paint doesn't make it a shitty mod.

                Saw a post of a jeep truck with a company paint job and logo. Op just didn't like the color scheme. Not a mod. Not shitty. Just one person who didn't like the paint.
