##Read the Wiki first
The wiki is written by /r/Amsterdam regulars, with all our secret tips and advice.
##Use the weekly stickies
If you are visiting or moving to Amsterdam, post your question in our weekly sticky thread. This way everyone benefits from the discussion.
##No Canal Photos/videos on Weekdays
Photos/videos where the primary subject is a stereotypical photo of Amsterdam's canals are not permitted on weekdays. Such content will be deleted without warning or explanation. You may only post such content on the weekends. Photos/videos that present a unique perspective or do not feature the canal as the primary subject may be permitted on weekdays.
##Intolerance is not tolerated
Amsterdam has been historically known as a tolerant place. We do not accept intolerance in any form on this subreddit.
##No blatant spam
We permit promotional material only if it is infrequent, directly relevant to a redditor living in Amsterdam rather than someone visiting Amsterdam, and the poster engages with the readership. Everything else is forbidden. Travel influencer posts are always spam. Vlogs are almost always spam. All surveys are spam unless preapproved by the moderators.
/r/Amsterdam is not a place to seek survey respondents for your university or market research.
##No illegal purposes
The subreddit may not be used for illegal purposes or for advocating blatant criminality. This includes buying/selling hard drugs, selling drugs to minors, smuggling drugs, and contributing to the stolen bicycle market.
