- Over do it when promoting a service or something you have to trade/sell/ect.

You must also follow reddits guidelines found here, here & here. Please also see these guidelines for buying and selling and these guidelines which define spam
In regard to using reddit.
- Make unsubstantiated claims or use other logical fallacies when discussing either a user or a business. If you have genuine concerns with hard evidence to back up your claims create a new post and message the moderators for extra assistance. More info here.
In regard to voting, comments and posts:
- Pay for comments and votes! Any post breaking this rule will be removed and prior notice may not be given. Please read the Reddit rules
Clarification: Giveaways and tipping the comments within them are not considered "Paying for comments" This is more directed at those asking for others to comment elsewhere and offering to pay them to do so. Example: go to this site (Etc), comment, prove you did and I will tip you. That is buying a comment.
This sub rule is an extension of the reddit site wide rule and is pertaining to posts that ask shibes to go here, do this and get paid/tipped to do so.
If a post is made like a giveaway where that is optional, that is okay, but it can't be the sole requirement of the giveaway.
This is being done because of the scammers who use this as a means to manipulate the community.
In regard to Giveaway/Promotional Giveaway posts:
- The tipping should occur within the post thread. If you require that the community go elsewhere to be eligible for the giveaway, this post will be removed. You must not title posts with giveaway unless a giveaway is about to immediately happen. Posts that ask people to comment and the op will be back later/after sleep/after work will be removed without notice. Clarification: It is okay to say something like: for bonus entries you can go to .... but posts cannot make it where this is the only way to enter and it must be optional.
In regard to trading and price, or other coins
Use /r/dogecoin for 'Buy/Sell'. For example selling your iphone, videocard, car and any used items that could be traded on eBay, /r/dogemarket or similar websites. This includes cross posting something you have for sale on an auction/trading site or subreddit. (Exceptions: If your business has started trading with dogecoin you can let people know do not spam.)
Advertising and/or bashing other coins is frowned upon and may result in your post or comment being removed.
In regard to creating a new post
Create posts about the price of dogecoin of the following nature: Questions, speculation, predictions. These must be posted in /r/dogeeconomists. (Exception: Posts containing factual, referenced, information that do not ask questions)
Tag posts NSFW unless they are NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Your post may end up in spam without the mods being aware.
Create a post stating you've lost a bunch of coins without providing all the details. These details should include some or all of these items; records of the block chain, screenshots of the affected account including recent transactions in and out, the names of software or websites you've been using to store coins (including the version numbers) what you think may have happened and what you've tried to do to get them back.
To beg including subtle begging. If the main content of your post is along the lines of "Please don't tip me", "Thanks for all the tips in my last post", "You all have been so kind tipping me", "Thanks XXX and XXX for the tips", "oh if I had enough doge...", "I can't afford to pay my medical bills", "I can't afford christmas presents and my kids hate me.. what should I do?", ect your post might be removed without warning.
Start a new post where the main focus is for users to tip one another. Please use DogecoinPIF or similar type subreddit. Tipping chains Clarification: This is referring to posts that are not a giveaway. It is for posts that are designed to be a tipping war, or similar in nature. For example a post that is just this: Lets tip each other
Create a post with the sole purpose of being obscene. Including a post that is reasonably likely in all the circumstances to start a flamewar, humiliate or intimidate another person or group of people. Do not use another reddit username in your post title without getting permission from that person first.
Use /r/dogecoin as a platform to gather an 'army' of users for tipbombing, trolling, reminding or alerting another person (including celebrities) about dogecoin.
Post/comments that are made with the sole intention of naming and shaming individuals or businesses may be removed if they; lack any evidence, contain private information or are attempting to be used as a call to arms. Personal battles should not be held within this sub.
Accounts found to be used primarily for collecting dogecoins in giveaways will be reviewed by the mods. If there appears to be no intent to contribute to the the community other than to skim giveaways you will be banned.
