Public description

Spreading news, advice, and media following the UK's spread of the virus. Please note, this sub is a disinformation-free zone and we do not tolerate conspiracy theories, fear-mongering, "alternative facts", or encouraging people to ignore public health advice.#### Description We welcome questions and feedback for the moderation team - but please send these via private message rather than posting them on the sub, to avoid cluttering the page or derailing existing discussions. We are volunteers running this subreddit in our spare time, so please be patient as we can't always reply immediately - but we do read every message we receive.

Subreddit rules

Engage in good faith

This sub is for info sharing, healthy discussion and debate - which requires all users to engage in good faith.

This includes considering other points of view, refraining from single-issue contributions (e.g. exclusively pro- or anti-lockdown content), and not misrepresenting evidence to suit an agenda.

Mods will consider recent post history rather than any one post, which may be from this or other subs. If a user engages in bad faith, offending posts will be removed and they may be banned.

Be civil

We do not tolerate incivility, sexism, racism, xenophobia or any form of bigotry. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

No NSFW/NSFL content

It is important that information is available to everyone, consequently this sub needs to be suitable for work at all times. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

Reliable sources should be used at all times for news and informational content

A reliable source is necessary to ensure that the spread of information remains factual. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

No conspiracy theories or fear mongering

No, we are not paid by the CCP, 5G is not causing COVID-19, vaccines do not cause autism. Stop it. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

No misinformation to be posted

While this links to rule 5, it's important enough to be a stand alone rule. Do not misinform anyone, be sure that what you post is factual. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

Keep content relevant

Please keep content relevant to the COVID-19 outbreak in the UK. International news should only be posted in exceptional circumstances if it has a particular impact on the UK, for instance the emergence of a new variant. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

No repeat posts

Please use the search function to check if a story has already been posted. We get it, you want to be first, but you've probably been beaten to it.

Don't editorialise titles

Submission titles should use the headline or subheading of the article being submitted, and should be changed only where it improves clarity or is absolutely necessary.

No self-promotion

This is not the place to link to your blog, your new book, your website, your latest YouTube video or podcast. All posts and comments breaking this rule will be removed and persistence may lead to a ban.

No Memes and other low quality content

To keep content of as high a quality as we can and having listened to sub users, we have banned the posting of memes. Other low quality content will also apply. All content of this nature will be deleted. Breaking this rule will result in removal of the post or message and may result in a potential ban.

No trolling or flamebait

Commenting with the intent of provoking anger or argument will result in comment removal and/or a ban.

Content belonging in Mega-Thread

Although there is nothing wrong with what you have posted, for consolidation purposes and ease of reading it would be better placed in the designated Mega-Thread for this topic.

Please feel free to re-submit in the appropriate location.

If you have any questions or feedback regarding the moderation of the sub, please messages the moderators.
