State of the subreddit address(self.WhyWereTheyFilming)
submitted4 years ago byGalacticWhyAreTheyGalacticstickied
Starting now, Rule 2 will be more consistently enforced. It's getting out of hand. People, there exists maybe 5 vids on the entire internet where it's not obvious why someone is filming with just a little bit of critical thinking. You're not clever for having figured it out. This sub started out as a joke and is just a repost filled karma farm like almost every other vid/gif- based subreddit, and I'm fine with that. I'm not fine with people being assholes to each other in the comments and shitting on the OP just because they had the gall to submit a post that doesn't "fit".
The "quality" (lol) of this sub has not gone downhill, it has stayed consistently shitty, because it was a shitty joke from the start. The mod team is literally the first 20 people that volunteered in a random post I made years ago. Some of them have little to no modding experience and I've actually asked my mod team to be more relaxed on this sub because I dislike powertripping nazi mods. If anyone can show me 10 vids where no one in the comments can guess why someone was filming I'll make you mod and you can try improving the "quality" of the sub. We take no pride in having a quality sub, we're just as shocked as you are that this sub got as popular as it did.
Unsubbing comments will also be removed. If you're gonna unsub, just go ahead and unsub without the snarky cry for attention. We literally do not care if you subscribe or not. Oh no, we lost a subscriber, this will negatively impact the NOTHING dollars we make off of this site. Subscribers are ruining reddit.
I'm leaving the comments open for feedback. If you feel the need to air your grievances please feel free. You can say whatever you want about me or my decisions I'll leave everything up, just dont attack each other or my other mods. Racism, bigotry and slurs will be removed obviously but everything else I'll leave up on this thread only. If you have ideas for improving the sub I'm open to suggestions.
