MOD Posting rules and some FAQ

157 Upvotes

Due to a large increase in the number of inappropriate and/or borderline posts, as well as the different ways rules are shown to people depending on whether they use the redesign, proper design or mobile, this post is now pinned to give everyone a clear view of what is and isn't allowed.

In terms of posting, you can and should post monarchism related content. Use your best judgement in this. Historical facts about monarchs, historical photos/paintings/relics directly related to monarchs, maps of historical empires, news about monarchies and pretenders, questions and discussions regarding monarchy are all top tier content. Memes are also allowed, but some semblance of decorum must be kept. Low effort, exceedingly edgy or just plain bad memes will from now on be met with removal. This also goes for ALL posts with emojis, clickbait or stuff like that in the title. We have over the years relaxed the policy on profanity, but using explicit words in your post title will now also be a reason for removal, however the current relaxed policy will continue in the comment section (standard rules still apply). We will use our best judgement on what is and isn't appropriate, so one imaginary map asking for discussion about a hypothethical monarchy if posted every once in a while is okay, as is political compass or alignment chart, but if there are five a day then they all get axed. Will everyone be happy with every decision? No. But that's not possible anyways, and we'll try to always rule in favor of the post staying up when possible.

Repetitive and basic questions should be in general posted in the „small questions court“, which I encourage people to use more. However, this will still not be mandatory, and only the lowest effort questions will be removed. Do note that we actually look at the reports we get, so since no one is reporting any of these questions (or even very low effort memes) in our eyes that means it doesn't bother you that much. We also ask that you take the time and report people breaking the rules in the comment sections. Our automod is at this point fairly reliable, but it is still a bot and as such can't be expected to have a brain. Be the change you want and hit that report button. That said, our policy on allowing dissenting opinions provided they are made in good faith still stands and reporting people for simply arguing against monarchy without breaking other rules will not get comments removed.

An important note on brigading. It is and will continue to be forbidden to crosspost from subreddits of opposing ideologies or ideologies that are often hostile to monarchism, or questionable subs(quarantined ones, or with a history of interference here). This is to prevent our subs brigading there following the crosspost. If you want to post something published on such a subreddit, you may do so by posting a screenshot with the subreddit name and all usernames (yours is optional if it is in the screenshot) blacked out. Subreddits which are „friendly“ to the cause (or at least neutral) can be crossposted normally and will only be removed if we are asked by the other sub. Brigading to other subs is naturally not allowed and if such problems happen we will expand the list of subs which can't be crossposted. For external sites, the same logic is applied. However, public personalities are an exception to this rule, so posts of a screenshot of a prime-minister or an actor do not need to have the names removed. Because most of „blue checkmarks“ on Twitter are not actually well known people, we used to ban screenshots of their tweets with the name visible being posted. This will no longer be the case, since it is now assumed that whoever has the „blue checkmark“ conisders themselves a public personality and is therefore not concerned about being quoted online.

SoFinally, we come to the issue of solicitation. This subreddit does not endorse any other subreddit or offsite community nor asks for such endorsements. The reason for this is that we want to ensure that this subreddit is not linked to any problematic organizations, and since we can't control these other communities then this is the safest solution. This doesn't mean that you can never promote anything here, but it does mean that if you have a subreddit which you want to promote, you need to send us a modmail first. That way we can see whether or not this is appropriate and then allow or disallow it. Mock governments and that sort of thing is never approved. No messaging app groups and offsite online communities can be promoted here. Political parties and organizations should also send a modmail and if they're legit we can organize an AMA, promotional posts, and a theme day for the monarchy in question (for this latter anyone may suggest this, but then it's better do make a post than use the modmail). And as a final note, if you want to do an AMA as a member of royalty or nobility, which we do absolutely support, you will need to provide proof. Proof can be provided privately via the modmail, but it has to be provided. It's simply to easy for someone to LARP as an exiled prince online.

We do also have a wiki and FAQ which covers many of these things already.

As you'll note this post is locked. This is because it's intended to stay up indefinitely and is more of a PSA than a discussion, so please direct all your questions to the Small Questions Court.

Question Anyone else find it sad most of the French crowns were destroyed during the French Revolution?

77 Upvotes

I was reading about crowns throughout history and pretty every crown except Louis XV's was destroyed in 1793. Anyone else find this incredibly disheartening?

Question Hungaria

Hey, monarchists! Polls of 2021 show 46% support for monarchy in Hungary. Are there any proposals for referendum or something? I think that there is a big chance to win it.

Discussion Is it justifiable to blame the royal family of a nation for the effects of colonization by them?

48 Upvotes

I'm not talking about just the British royal family. It's about everyone in general that had a colonial past. People with their new found self-righteousness and sjw trope and wokeism (I don't know if that's the right term to use here) go on saying "I despise the royal family because they use to exploit our/certain people's resources and steal gemstones and etc." or they otherwise say "Monarchies that had a hand in imperialism and colonialism must go away and those that must remain are those of cultural identity like indigenous ones".

While some of their comments are true, what angers me most is that these people don't focus away from the royalty and overtime, has made colonialism exclusively synonymous with monarchy.

So, what's your opinion?
