r/cooperatives Rules:

  1. Follow Reddit Content Policy

  2. Submissions must be explicitly about cooperatives. If it is so broad it could be posted over dozens of subreddits, it should not be posted here.

  3. Don't be a jerk, please don't swear. We are here because we love coops. Refrain from insults, attacks, bigotry, etc.

  4. No Memes. Please post memes to more specific subreddits.

  5. Low Effort Posting: many answers depend on context, location, etc. If you are asking a question, give at least a paragraph of context, please. Also remember there are Consumer, Worker, Hybrid type Cooperatives. Basic clarification on Wikipedia

  6. No surveys without moderator approval. Message the Moderators

  7. Any self-promotional or advertisement content (about Coops!) should be generally in a self-post and have the majority of content on reddit. Posting a self-promotional link with no further information in the comments or not replying to comments is low-effort and spammy.
