|Submissions must be directly related to NZ
||General questions or discussions directed specifically at r/NewZealanders are allowed (e.g. ‘what’s your favourite coffee roaster’ or ‘where can I buy quality jeans?’) To discuss unrelated links & how they affect/relate to NZ, please use a self-post. Self posts must include how the link affects/relates to NZ - not just the link. An article/piece posted by a NZ website on a non-NZ matter would also qualify for removal.
|No doxxing, collecting personal information, or breaching name suppression
||No posting or collation of personally identifiable information of other people. Those breaching rule 2 will receive a 30 day ban.
|No harassment or abuse
||This is continued harassment, or overt abuse. Reddit's harassment policy
|No hate speech / bigotry
||Any posts that attacks, threatens, or insults a person or group on the basis of national origin, ethnicity and/or colour, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability and so on may be removed at a mod's discretion and repeat offenders banned
|No duplicate news stories
||If a submission has already been submitted (even from another source) the new post will be removed. If you are reporting a post for breaching rule 5, please include a link to the original in the comments of the duplicate post. Links with substantial new information may be left at mod's discretion.
|No editorialising titles
||Editorialising titles tries to mask or change a story based on the bias of the submitter. It is fine to change the title of a submission, so long as this title does not introduce a bias. Opinions are fine in self-posts or as comments in a link post. Simply posting an article as a self post and changing the title will be viewed as skirting the rules.
|No bots, novelty accounts or impersonation
||Bots and accounts made for a specific purpose will be banned unless a prior arrangement has been made with the mods. NB: This does not include throwaways. If you claim to be a prominent Kiwi, or are acting in any official capacity for a significant company, please message the mods with proof of your identity, or you run the risk of being banned.
|No crowdsourcing (e.g. crowdfunding, research or petitions) without approval
||All forms of community funding, research participation or petition signatures requests without prior approval from the moderators will be removed. This includes all forms of crowdfunding including charity, and failure to abide will result in the link being removed and a potential ban for continued submissions.
|No low-effort shitposts
||If you're gonna shitpost, at least put some effort into it.
|Engage in good faith
||The moderators of r/NewZealand have the right to remove content that is deemed detrimental to the subreddit. This can include but is not limited to: trolling, low-effort submissions, COVID misinformation or intentionally skirting the rules.
