    INE Rule Update: Effective Immediately

    In an effort to improve the reddit experience for our subscribers and moderators, the INE has updated our rules. The most significant change is a revision of the first 2 rules.


    The changes to rules 1 & 2:

    • #1: Credit the artist in the submission title. If you don’t, and a moderator can find artist credit with a quick search, your post will be removed.
    • #2: Please comment with at least one source or artist website link. We want to drive some traffic to the creators!

    These look pretty similar to the original rules, but there is a big difference!

    • #1: You can now use artist aliases and pseudonyms in the submission title. Posts will no longer be removed for having only the alias and not the real name.

    • #2: Your submission link no longer has to be from OS. You may rehost images, but we always want to see a source or artist website in the comments.

    #####Read all INE Rules.


    Some notes about OS:

    • OS submissions are still welcomed. We're just saying that rehosted pieces will no longer be removed as rule-breaking.

    • Source or contact websites should always be given in the comments, preferably by: OP > users > mods. If OP misses a few or more sources, users and mods will post those for them, but if becomes a real ongoing problem we could remove OP submission rights as needed.

    • Rehosting is preferred rather than linking to a shitty non-OS website. The spirit of the rule should always be providing the best possible user experience.


    INE Mods: All official INE subs have been updated. Sidebars, rules, and removal reasons on old.reddit and new.reddit are now in line with the rule changes.

    FYI - Unofficial INE Subreddits will still have their content considered for /r/ImaginaryBestOf

    Just remember that I don't see every post, so if you see something really fantastic, maybe crosspost it here? I'll def see it from here and can consider it then.

    This sub could be full of xposts really. Any thoughts on it?

    P.S. if anyone wants to mod here, just let us know.
