The sidebar is a summary. Please see our full rules wiki page. Mouse over for futher details.

Rule 0: Be civil

No personal attacks, witch-hunts, or inflammatory language. This includes calling or implying another redditor is a shill.

No racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or other hateful language.

No trolling or baiting posts/comments.

No calls for violence against any groups or individuals.

Any account less than 90 days old may be permanently banned on the first infraction of this rule.

Rule #1: No spam, porn, or facilitating piracy

This can result in an immediate ban.

Please see our full rules on self-promotion here.

Rule #2: No affiliate, referral links, or ads

This includes Amazon, GMG tap links, Star Citizen, etc.

Ads include chat/game server recruitment (i.e. Discord), and will be removed.

Rule #3: No memes, PCMR language, or low-effort posts/comments

This includes contextless images/screenshots/GIFs as well as anti-platform or PCMR language such as "master race" and calling people peasants.

Low effort posts/comments and submissions not attempting to create discussion are prohibited. This also includes game suggestion posts not following a proper format.

Rule #4: No tech support or game help questions

Tech support questions can be posted in our stickied tech support thread.

General game related discussion is allowed, but game-specific help requests (how to defeat a certain boss or level, what loadout is best for my character, etc) and basic questions (is a game co-op, does this game have controller support, etc) aren't. Those questions would be more appropriate for the game's subreddit if it exists.

Rule #5: No questions about building/buying computers, hardware, peripherals, furniture, etc

This includes "Can my PC run this?" type questions, links showing off your computer build, or asking questions about builds.

Use /r/buildapc for all PC building questions. You can also try /r/buildapcforme, /r/SuggestALaptop, /r/headphones, /r/monitors, /r/mechanicalkeyboards, and /r/mousereview for more specific questions.

Rule #6: No friend requests, surveys, or begging

This includes group/clan recruitment. Our Discord has channels for finding people to play with.

We no longer allow surveys. You can try /r/samplesize.

Please don’t make requests for spare game keys or PC parts. GoFundMe and other fundraising posts are also prohibited.

Rule #7: No Let's Plays, streams, highlight reels or random videos

In addition to this, Youtube links posted by new accounts are filtered due to channel spamming.

Rule #8: No off-topic posts/comments

Keep posts and comments related to PC gaming and the topic being discussed.

Rule #9: Use the original source, no editorialized titles, no duplicates

Submissions must use the original source.

Don't editorialize your titles.

No duplicates.
