No. You know what? Just go away.

Every time someone posts a picture, a gif, a video, a screenshot, or just anything really that involves some kind of "corporate" thing - A video game, a logo, or probably just even the town hall of a city given how overboard you dummies go, you have to /r/HailCorporate it.

I'm done. I've had enough. You can't just spam /r/HailCorporate and expect an upvote. You can't just be like "dude, you're playing a game?" and post /r/HailCorporate. You just can't.

I doubt you even work for corporate given how against them you are. You live in a cardboard box, typing on your CrapBook Pro, feeling good about yourself because you think you just "called someone else out" for being a corporate shill.

Just who do you think you are? Some epic 12-year-old on the internet with le cool fedora posting about how "corporate shill hails this, corporate shill hails that?" Well, I've got news for you. You aren't anything. You aren't epic, you aren't a 12-year-old, and your fedora certainly isn't le cool.

I hope in time you will learn that not everybody and everything is a corporate shill.

Incidents involving gun violence and second amendment rights invariably lead to heated arguments. Seeing as this tragedy is so recent, we have decided to lock this thread.

We pray for the victims of this heinous act and their families. Anyone looking for an active discussion related to this incident can follow this thread.

This will be contentious as the post itself is NSFW. Here goes....risque content is allowed with a NSFW tag; however outright nudity or porn is not, and is a banable offense. The bans handed out so far will be reversed, but the post is being locked to prevent further violations.

Hi everyone,

You're sick of reposts. We get it, we are too. We get more reports for reposts than any other rule violation. We investigate every single report, and reposts/crossposts take the most time. However, all too often we just get a report without any sources. Some posts get tens of reports claiming it's a repost or recent popular crosspost, but when we investigate the post we can't find an earlier occurrence.

What it comes down to is, much like Wikipedia: [citation needed]

We can't remove these posts if we can't find the original. We want to clear out the posts that you've already seen. We just need your help. When you report these posts, please use the "other" reason and provide us with the source of the original post. If you don't have it or can't find it, that's fine. We'll still check it and see if we can track it down. But if you can provide this info, it will go a long way toward getting those offending posts off the front page.

As a reminder of what we're looking for your help with...

  • REPOSTS are posts that have been on /r/gifs before. These are not allowed on /r/gifs. If the original post has gotten a very small amount of points, we may allow it again, but that is not guaranteed.

  • CROSSPOSTS are posts that haven't been on /r/gifs but have been around reddit. Crossposts are allowed under certain circumstances, and are even encouraged by reddiquette. We allow crossposts as long as they are posted to /r/gifs before receiving more than 1500 points in another subreddit within the past 14 days. After those 14 days are up, crossposts are fine!

Thanks and happy giffing,

The /r/gifs mod team

Hello, /r/gifs subscribers. We are always looking to be better at making /r/gifs the best it can possibly be. For right now, that means we're simplifying rule 1 and making it more effective at preventing reposts.

The updates to this rule will begin being enforced 7 days after this announcement post has been made.

This rule is now live!


  1. Reposts and Crossposts:
    • Do not post gifs that have already appeared on /r/gifs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
    • Do not post gifs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to gif formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.

Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.

Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.


This update will help keep things fresh and let posts thrive at their original location before they're posted in /r/gifs. The previous wording worked at the time, but was a bit too complex and discouraged things that actually make reddit great.

Since this is a major change, there may be tweaks to the rule as time goes on so that it works better for everyone. If you have any feedback or questions, please message the mods.

The video of this was not at 1000+ at the time GallowBoob posted this. No, this post does not violate our rules.

However, I will direct you all to rule 6:

No witch-hunts or brigading in posts or comments. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.

This includes trying to rile people up over another reddit user's activities. There are always many sides to everything, and we've seen reddit go after the wrong person many times.

As nearly half the comments in this thread were in violation of rule 6, this thread is locked.

As a reminder, if you have questions or concerns about a post, report them or message the mods.

At /r/gifs, we've required direct file links for quite some time. This has allowed us to streamline the user experience.

Users have made it clear that they have wanted to be able to link to gfycat.com share pages. Rest assured your voices have been heard by both the developers of gfycat and the moderators of /r/gifs. Changes have been made to the gfycat share pages that fall in line with the requirements we've had for other sites (notably imgur).

So beginning today, you are now allowed to link to the standard gfycat urls inside /r/gifs!

For example, we previously required links formatted like this: http://giant.gfycat.com/SleepyThisGreendarnerdragonfly.gif

Now, you are allowed to format your link like this: http://gfycat.com/SleepyThisGreendarnerdragonfly

We are discussing the nuances of linking to nsfw subreddits, as they are not a direct link to nsfw content.

Whoa look at you with your superior logic! /s

Moderator of r/gifs, speaking officially-1 points · 2 years ago

The reason we are discussing that is because linking to nsfw subreddits has a gated entry to subreddits that are marked nsfw, whereas linking to a nsfw gif has no warning.

linking to nsfw subreddits has a gated entry to subreddits that are marked nsfw

That's a good point. Is there a possibility you can make a guess about how long that discussion will take and a when a decision about that topic will be made?

No specific eta. Discussions about policy changes take time.

New to reddit? Click here!

.gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format submissions only, please!

Submissions cannot contain sound

If there is a violation of the rules, please click the report button and leave a report, and also message the moderator team and report the problem if it requires more detail.


  1. Reposts and Crossposts:

    • Do not post gifs that have already appeared on /r/gifs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
    • Do not post gifs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to gif formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.

    Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
    Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.

    Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.

    This rule is meant to keep things fresh. Reposts will be removed, however a good gif that did very badly the first time around may be given a second chance. We also don't wish to discourage cross-posting in general (it's even encouraged by reddiquette), but if something was recently popular elsewhere, we want to let the original post stand on its own for a while before it comes to /r/gifs.

    Please note that the cross-post rule applies at the time of posting. We don't want to punish users who were within the rules when they made their post. For example, if a post has 1000 points elsewhere, and someone cross-posts it here, but a few hours later the original post has gone past 1500 points, that's fine.

  2. No Reaction, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote gifs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    The /r/reactiongifs wiki explains this well. Just because a gif has a reaction in it doesn't make it a reaction gif.

  3. Do not post gifs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs or content much better suited to video formats will be removed. 20 seconds maximum duration. (This rule does not apply to comments)

    Gifs are a short-form format, so if a gif doesn't provide any benefit, or a video format is preferable, it isn't allowed. For example, these may be removed...

    • Gifs that require audio to be properly appreciated.
    • Gifs with many cuts to different scenes.
    • Gifs with a file size over 15mb.
  4. Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single gif image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!

    Image/gallery pages are prone to malicious ads or editing in spam in the text areas, so we require direct linking to prevent this. URL shorteners are on reddit's site-wide spam filter, because you can hide anything in a URL shortener and people have no idea what their browser will open.

  5. No depictions of real-life harassment or assault in posts or comments. There are other subreddits dedicated to this kind of content.

  6. No witch-hunts or brigading in posts or comments. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.

    This includes trying to rile people up over another reddit user's activities. There are always many sides to everything, and we've seen reddit go after the wrong person many times.

  7. Nudity, porn, gore, and other obscene material are not allowed in posts or comments - No exceptions. Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. There are other subreddits dedicated to NSFW content. Please mark risqué posts and comments as NSFW.

    Risqué posts (girls in bikinis, for instance) are fine as long as it's tagged as NSFW and isn't overtly sexual. Porn, gore, nudity, and sex acts are bannable offenses in posts or comments. Anything causing grievous bodily harm or death is considered gore, even if there's no gore shown.

  8. Titles must be descriptive. Do not make submissions with the title "This", "This is my favorite gif", etc.

  9. No hate speech of any kind in posts or comments. Racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise abusive submissions or comments will result in an immediate ban.

    Making fun of or belittling any person or people based on race, sex, gender, sexual preference, disability, or other characteristics is likely to get you banned. Language that goes past the standard "internet tough guy" banter may result in a removal or ban, depending on the severity.

  10. Please familiarize yourself with the official rules and reddiquette. We will remove any posts or comments violating reddit's official rules (spam, personal information, vote manipulation, etc.) and reddiquette just makes reddit a better place to visit.
