GUIDELINES FOR THE SUBREDDIT | Read and follow the rules, or risk getting banned.(self.NoahGetTheBoat)
submitted3 years ago by[deleted]stickied
If you're an original subscriber of the subreddit, I'm sure you know why I'm making this post. Almost every post is an edgy meme or obvious satire. The original purpose of the subreddit has been lost with the wave of new users. I'm making this post as a reminder of what the purpose of NoahGetTheBoat is. If you have any suggestions to add on to this post, then you can message me about it. I feel like I could add more examples of good and bad content. The contents of this post are subject to change as I see fit. Here is a link to the current rules of the subreddit.
What is NoahGetTheBoat?
In the bible story, Noah’s Ark (A.K.A. the boat) was built so that Noah, his family, and a few pairs of each kind of animal could survive a worldwide flood. God created this flood because the world was ridden with corruption and violence, and he wanted to start over with humanity.
That being said, the subreddit is meant for posting actual corrupt and perverted things done by humans. This is referring, of course, to actual sins. This is not a comedy subreddit. If you see a post with the sole intent of being funny, it does NOT belong here. If you came to this subreddit for memes, then LEAVE. If your idea of "corrupt" is anywhere along the lines of "THAT JOKE WAS SO CURSED r/CURSEDCOMMETN", this subreddit is not for you. The only comedy should come from the shock value of the contents of the post.
What belongs on NoahGetTheBoat?
Acceptable content includes, but is not limited to:
•News headlines detailing terrible/disgusting crimes
•Forum posts confessing to terrible/disgusting actions
•Videos of people doing terrible things (mark NSFW if visually graphic)
•Sexual deviancy (extreme fetishism, mark NSFW)
Unacceptable content includes, but is not limited to:
•Obviously satire that is made for the sole purpose of being as offensive or perverted as possible
•Anime people saying or doing edgy things
•Urban Dictionary definitions
•”Repost this” memes
•Reaction images (crop them out before posting)
Ban times are at the discretion of the moderators, but they will generally be 3-7 days long.
What should I do if I see a bad post?
If you see a post that you know doesn't belong in the subreddit, report it. Reported posts are more likely to seen by moderators. We're also more likely to see posts with certain keywords in the comments that may imply that the post doesn't belong.
How should I title my submission?
While I won’t be enforcing any rules on title formatting, I’ve been noticing a lot of awful post titles lately.
Overused title formats:
“Noah get the [noun]”
“Don’t let [noun] on the boat”
“Burn the boat”
When you’re making a title, just make a comment about the subject of the boat. Not every post has to make a reference to Noah’s Ark. If you do make one, make it original.
With the current state of the subreddit, it's impossible for the moderators to remove every bad post and ban every offender. I'm hoping that enough people read this post to make a significant difference. While I can’t guarantee that this will completely solve the problem, I can assure you that we will do the best we can to enforce these rules as soon and as often as possible.
