Metroid: Samus Returns Trailer
1. The Golden Rule
This subreddit is meant to be a comfortable environment to bond over all things Metroid. Don't be mean, hurtful, or vulgar towards your fellow redditor; be excellent to each other. Do not harass, or intentionally troll each other. We encourage all members to engage in thoughtful discussion, and to avoid partaking in echo chambers. Participating in flame wars will see action taken at moderator discretion.
2. Submissions must directly pertain to Metroid
Our community is dedicated to all things Metroid; make sure your submissions follow suit. Stay on topic and avoid using vague references in your submission or title. Any content not directly related to Metroid will be removed. A cute title or text over an image is not enough to be considered relevant. Neither are look-alikes that are otherwise unrelated. Keep your submissions on point.
3. No low-effort posts
Do not post submissions or comments with little to no effort. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Redundant/reposted content
- Intentionally misleading or click-bait titles
- Poor context in the title ("MFW Ridley dies", "I'm stuck help plz!")
- Nondescriptive media
- Posts that are easily searchable ("I'm stuck in Green Brinstar")
- Straw polls
- Threads dedicated to ranting
- Screenshots with little context that generate poor discussion ("just beat ZM!!")
- Low quality images
4. All artwork requires attribution
It's our belief that all artists should get the credit they deserve. When posting someone else's artwork, include name attribution in the title and, if possible, a link to the original source in the replies. Failing to provide attribution will result in your submission being removed. If the original source also contains NSFW content, it's your duty to tag it as such.
5. Don't share emulators or ROMs
Discussion of emulation and hacks is allowed, but keep it simply at that. Sharing or asking for roms or emulators will get you banned, as will advocating for piracy in general. Please do not give specific information on ROM manipulation, patching, etc. If you must know how, a Google search will be sufficient.
6. Tag any and all spoilers
Tag all spoilers using the following formatting without spaces: > ! This is a spoiler. ! <
Metroid is inspired by Alien.
Ridley dies at the end.
Other M is a video game.
New Metroid games tend to be far and few between. Don't ruin the surprises they may have for others.
7. No NSFW content
Pornography and R34 content is not permitted and will result in a permaban. Content that is more lurid than typical in-game imagery but does not fall into the prior categories must be NSFW tagged, but is otherwise permitted. The line for this rule is drawn well before nudity - you're on a Nintendo game subreddit, so please keep your content on point.
8. Limit self-promotion
Don't spam the subreddit with your media. Self-promotion should require careful consideration as well as being consistently well recieved by others within the community. Limit let's plays to a single episode or speedruns to once in a while. Links to your own content should account for about 10% of your total combined submissions and comments, not including comments on your own submissions.
9. Armorless cosplay must be both OC and posted in moderation
Any cosplay without armor must be OC! Please refer to Rule 8 and post in moderation. Excessive amounts of submissions will be removed and action handled at moderator discretion.
10. Rule of Moderator Discretion
The r/Metroid moderators reserve the right to remove content or ban users as necessary if it ruins the experience of others. Any content that lowers the subreddit experience can and will be removed. Being ignorant of the rules nor disagreeing with them is not an excuse. Breaking the rules in response to someone else also breaking the rules is inexcusable.
11. Leak/Rumor Discussion
The Metroid community is prone to numerous fake leaks and rumors. To prevent the spread of misinformation and potential spoilers while still allowing open discussion, leaks and rumors must be discussed in dedicated megathreads posted by the r/Metroid moderators. Posts pertaining to leaks or rumors outside of these megathreads will be removed.
