New Enforcement of Rules

Our current method of enforcing rules doesn’t seem to be working so we are implementing a new system.

The most common rule broken on the sub is rule 1: post is not suspiciouslyspecific. These types of posts have been getting to the front page of the sub daily. No matter how many we remove, it seems 5 more take their place within a few hours. To deal with this, we are going to be ramping up repercussions that break that rule and the others listed in the side bar. Most of you who post and frequent this sub will not be affected. The new system is to target repeat offenders.

OFFENSE SYSTEM

1st offense: warning

2nd offense: 2 day ban

3rd offense: 10 day ban

4th offense: permaban

We are also pinning a gallery of example posts that do and do not break rule 1 to help clear up what is and is not suspiciously specific. People who decide to post without first looking through them do so at their own risk.

SPAM SYSTEM

In an effort to curb spam, we are including a gallery of blatant rule breaking posts. This will use a separate system of strikes:

1st offense: 36-72 hour ban

2nd offense: permaban

One last thing, mods are people too and we don’t appreciate being harassed about post removals over dm. If you genuinely have a question about a removal, USE MODMAIL. If you don’t know how modmail works, Google it! If you believe the mod made a mistake with the removal, the mod team can look over your post and decide to approve it. Saying that a post has x amount of upvotes or n amount of comments is not a valid argument.

Good posts

OK posts

Bad posts

Spam

note: the galleries will be updated as needed

Edit: Spam gallery added

Edit 2: the spongebob duplicate post that appears in the OK posts gallery and the bad posts gallery is meant to be ONLY in the bad posts gallery.

There's a very thin line between suspiciously specific and "I'm so random" and the vast majority of posts here seem to be on the wrong side of that line, even ones you've outlined as good... So many are just trying too hard.

Most of the posts are just jokes, nothing suspicious

2

u/clce Jul 01 '22

Totally agree. Even the ones that say something like hypothetically speaking seem to end up either being not suspicious because they already made it clear for the joke that they are talking about something real, or they're obviously making stuff up just to make the joke. I'm not sure I've ever seen a suspiciously specific post on here that I thought truly qualified. Maybe I'm just too picky

At least y’all are more lean about permabans. Man I get banned off my first offense

u/TheAsAndYsReddit Jan 08 '22

Yeah, some subs give you like one ban before the permaban. I got permabanned from r/BitLifeApp for, get this, posting about the BitLife app.

u/knighttmair Mar 27 '22

What was the post? It had to have had broken some rule.

u/TheAsAndYsReddit Mar 27 '22

u/knighttmair Mar 27 '22

I don't see how that is an offense.

2

u/TheAsAndYsReddit Mar 27 '22

That’s what I said!

2

u/knighttmair Mar 27 '22

Oh well, if they banned you for that, i don't see how you would care for it.

I always took this sub as people explaining an embarrassing situation as if it was someone else, in a hypothetical scenario, or as a question/asking for a friend to jokingly protect their identity.

1

u/clce Jul 01 '22

Yeah but even those, if they're written in a way that is wonk wink, asking for a friend when they are clearly making a joke out of it, then it's not very suspicious and loses any humor that comes from that

Is there gonna be action against all the posts that involve purposefully specific stuff? Example

u/haleyrosew Nov 20 '21

Hold on, the sponge bob post was in both okay and bad posts. I was already having enough trouble trying to figure out why somethings were good but things I thought were similar weren’t

u/SwampyBogbeard Nov 30 '21

I've noticed that a certain poster has gotten multiple posts removed for breaking rule 1 the last few days.
So why are they still posting on this sub without problem? According to offense system outlined in this post, they should currently be in the middle of a 2 day ban (or longer).

When your in a diferend discord server for PVZ then start muting people that attaked you when you first tiped somthink and it was alot so when you try a diferent chat some guy that was doing the same thing but you fogot to block him then you reed what thos people that you blocked and they ard chering on that guy and you cry for 1-hour becaus people dont whant you in it becaus they think your an usles human and should go die so then you chainge your user name and profile pick .

u/Nigglesscripts Jun 19 '20

Sooo this should be on the main thread. Not a mod update thread. More people will see

u/Cringinator4000 Dec 07 '21

The subreddit is just r/nonpoliticaltwitter now. Fix it, mods. Do your jobs.

2

u/greenknight884 Nov 22 '21

You should also ban all of the people who repost the "It's a family secret" screenshot. There are a few other ones that get reposted verbatim for karma points but this is the one I remember.

u/NitWit2030 Mar 16 '22

This is suspiciously specific!
