Welcome to /r/submechanophobia; the fear of partially or fully submerged man-made objects. Please respect the following rules while here:

TITLE RULES:

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.

SUBMITTING AND COMMENTING RULES:

  • 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.

REPOST RULES:

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.

  • Tiktok links will be removed, as well as videos taken from tiktok, but posted on other sources.

Nightmare fuel. Imagine this when you’re swimming in unknown waters and it’s murky and it’s deep and you won’t see the bottom. All you can hear is chop-chop-chop and it’s nearing you. 🥶

Submechanophobia: A large propeller emerges from the gloom.

This is just… My worst nightmare. My hands actually were sweating from the moment this thing appeared on the screen. Despite it’s just lying on the bottom but the shape and and mist around it makes it just so terrifying.
