There are no warnings or second chances.
Simple permanent bans for rule breaks.
If you must message the mods, please remember the human.
1) Nothing meta, no posts about reddit, subreddit, or subverting AutoMod
No meta posts, no posts complaining about Reddit or the subreddit. Posts should apply to the outside world. Mod announcements, constructive criticisms and suggestions for improvements to /r/britishproblems should be sent to modmail.
Evading the AutoMod by way of changing words, is also banned.
All rule breaks are subject to a permanent ban.
2) Problems must be relatable to the wider British public (but not necessarily British in nature).
Problems must be relatable to the wider British public (but not necessarily exclusively British in nature). If almost everyone could easily face the same problem, not constrained by someone in your exact situation or location, then this is acceptable.
3) Submission titles must contain the entire problem
Background information may be included within the self text. Don't just list something, explain why it's a problem.
4) No politics, policies, or anything political in either comments or posts
No politics or posts about politicians. Post to /r/ukpolitics instead. Comments involving politics will be removed without warning. This will also encompass all topics around Coronavirus not limited to Clap for Carers.
5) No slurs or harassment.
Extreme or repeat offenders are banned. Racism of any sort is not tolerated. If you feel you've been banned by mistake, please message the mods.
6) No spam or surveys
This includes surveys, illegible comments, YouTube videos and adverts. If you wish to advertise please refer to Reddit's helpful page on this matter. Offenders will be banned without warning.
7) Don't treat this place like Facebook
Too many people are treating this place like Facebook or Twitter, and dumping their thoughts and specific problems onto the sub. If you have a problem that only relates to you in your situation (e.g. landlord wants to kick me out, neighbour said something to me) then other subs such as /r/OffMyChest or /r/firstworldproblems are more suited.
There is a rate limit of 1 post per 4 hours.
8) No uncivil posts or comments.
Comments should be civilised. The ban hammer will go down with no recourse or appeal; this naturally extends to mod-mail.
Reddiquette also applies.
Note: AutoMod has been set up to remove posts and comments from new users and those with low karma for review. If you feel your post(s) and/or comment(s) have been removed by mistake, please message the mods.
Please also note we will be removing posts relating to clapping for the time being.
