  1. Have a fact in your title

  • C) Please avoid commentary in the title. (TIL, emojis, etc.)
  1. Include a source for your title in the comments.
  • A) Your source cannot be a personal blog or non scientific news site, and must include citations/references. Wikipedia is not exempt from requiring citations, and typically displays a warning when missing references. Example

  1. We reserve the right to remove posts using profanity or that are otherwise objectionable.
  1. Reposts of the same picture or fact within 1 week are not allowed. After one week, submissions with either the title or picture changed will be allowed. Blatant reposts (same picture, same fact) are not allowed.
  1. No veterinary advice posts, please.
  1. No self promotion. This includes illustrations and comics. High quality reproductions of extinct organisms may be acceptable.
