It's a new month, so I have decided to make some updates to the sidebar and banner. Congratulations to /u/crossbreed55 for posting the top post of the month - it's now our new sidebar image! The banner image is made up of top posts from /u/call911itsAnna, /u/gotti7, /u/outrider567, /u/blrghh, and /u/meunderwears (x2) all of whom made top posts this month. Again, congrats!
Let me just be really straightforward here: we need to talk about Rule 9.
Rule 9: No purely random/WTF images. This subreddit isn't "no context" in the sense of "What the fuck?" It's no context as in good pictures that don't benefit from a backstory or witty headline. Pictures that are poor quality and obviously nothing more than WTF moments will be removed. Those pictures are more suited for /r/hmmm, /r/WTF, or /r/lolwat. Strange pictures are not strictly prohibited, but they need to be interesting beyond just being strange.
/r/nocontextpics is a subreddit dedicated to enjoying high quality, impressive images without lame-ass context in the title. That's it. We are not /r/hmmm. We are not /r/WTF. We are most definitely not /r/pics. We are strict for the sake of the experience. Here's a point of advice when you are composing a post: sort our subreddit by top posts of all time. Does the photo you're about to post look generally similar to those?
If not... don't waste your time because we will delete it. If so... post it - then post more! We love you!
That's all I have to say. This subreddit is an aesthetic experience, not a digital landfill.
We have seen a HUGE influx of followers this month and I just want to send a thank you to anyone who reports posts that break our subreddit rules. This helps the mod team keep the quality high as we continue to grow. Also, thank you to anyone who mentions us in other subreddits such as /r/AskReddit or /r/pics. We love it!
That's all for now.
