Promotion

Some promotional submitting (posting your own projects, articles, etc.) is permitted, but it must be balanced out by a much greater level of non-promotion participation in reddit - the rule of thumb is no more than 10% of your submissions may be promotional. Do not solicit votes for your posts. For more information, see the self-promotion on reddit FAQ.

If you want to promote without participating in the community, purchase an ad.

Please report posts containing spoilers unless they are hidden using the following method or are inside a thread clearly labeled as containing spoilers.

Format:

**Spoiler:** >!X Kills Y!<

Result: Spoiler: >!X Kills Y!<

Posting unmarked spoilers will result in removal and warning, and posting spoilers with malicious intent will result in a ban.
