Welcome to /r/submechanophobia; the fear of partially or fully submerged man-made objects. Please respect the following rules while here:
All titles must accurately summarise the content of the post with as much relevant information as possible. Proper grammar is expected, and emojis are banned. How do we determine what titles are applicable? It's a two step test:
Does the title describe the content?
Does the title fit the post in a specific enough manner that it couldn’t be used on any other post?
If one of these tests are failed then the post will be removed and flaired 'title rules', meaning you can resubmit the post with a more suitable title.
Check if the submission really is related to submechanophobia. The depicted subject must be partially or fully submerged in water and be man-made. Please nothing that isn't real life; i.e no video games, renderings, CGI, audio interviews etc.
if it's not submerged, it shouldn't be here. If it's supposed to be submerged, it probably shouldn't be here. if it's submerged, and it shouldn't be - it definitely should be here.
Text content and self-posted video clips not pre-approved by the moderators will be removed.
Animatronics go to /r/submergedanimatronic
Remember that this is subMECHANOphobia. No animals please, keep it to posts about man-made objects.
Posts can be removed for being low quality. This is applicable on a case-by-case basis, but that could mean such things as poor resolution, not being closely enough related to the subreddit topic, for being clickbait or for having a bad image host.
Don't use the line "I was told to post this here" or something like "OMG so creepy!". It annoys people, they report the comment and it keeps Automod up all night with notifications. This goes for posting irrelevant comments like "Nope", "Fuck that" or anything similar.
No generic memes, jokes or comics. Put them in the comments if you must
Absolutely no having hostility directed towards one another for mistakes or reposts, we can sort that out. No extreme unpleasantries; the mods will decide how to define that on a case-by-case.
To be considered a repost:
If the image has been posted by someone else in the last three 3 months.
If the image is in the first 2 pages of the "top: all time" section.
If the same user have reposted the same image before, regardless of timespan.
Image is reposted yearly by accounts with suspicious activities, ie. no comments, very high post karma.
If you see a repost, please report the post and we will deal with it when we can.
The mod team reserves the right to remove any content deemed of not adequate quality without notification.

Not my content it popped up in my utube feed. It's utterly horrific and belongs here. It's crazy and informative 😲
Just for some extra fear: there is a deep humming sound coming out of the building on the left.
Hi all! People told me to post my adventure in this group 😁 I went to China to explore the abandoned Soviet aircraft carrier, or Heavy Aviation Cruiser. Laid down in 1972 and abandoned in 2016. I swam to this ship at night and spend 24hours inside.
Took a nighttime hike to a ruined castle and stumbled upon this instead... really freaked us out as we had no idea it was there.
This is a really good shipwreck and shark video. Great animation
My dumbass thought it was a concrete submarine. Creeped me the hell out.
