Alright, due to recent problems concerning the Image Galleries, we’ve decided to create a set of Guidelines for the users to follow to avoid other problems occurring again:
These Rules apply to ALL galleries
No posting of Porn and Gore images to image galleries, unless the gallery requires such material (e.g. Oh God What Have I Done? or Daily Dose/Piccolo Dick), in which we ask that you contact a mod or admin so that we may decide the best course of action. Anything outside of these galleries must be marked as NSFW (Not Safe For Work). Image Editors who come across unmarked NSFW content are to mark the images accordingly. Consistent failure to comply will lead to suspensions and eventually bans. For more information about the site’s rules on NSFW content, please check the NSFW Guidelines.
Spam content is forbidden within galleries, such as advertising and trollbait. Using the gallery in order to advertise your own generated content will lead to possible suspensions, whereas trollbait will lead to suspensions, with bans being enforced due to consistent failure to comply. We also ask that users report any duplicate images, so that they may be dealt with accordingly.
Any Meta Content directly relating to the site (Such as NSFW Thumbnail Parodies) should be uploaded to our KnowYourMeme Entry Gallery. Content containing popular in-jokes (Such as The Goat) or user parodies (Such as this) should not be uploaded to any gallery, and should be tagged with Kymtheon. Site screenshots (such as images showing image gallery view counts and trending bar arrangements) must not be uploaded under any condition, and will be deleted. Likewise, images related to the content or state of the entry (such as Marvel’s Deadpool) are unrelated to the entry and therefore will be removed.
If an image can go into a more relevant gallery, do not upload it into one of the umbrella galleries (Such as Reaction Faces, Anime, GIF, Childhood Ruined, Childhood Enhanced, Alternate Universe, Tumblr and Crossover). It is okay to upload a single image or video to multiple galleries as long as the two are equally relevant. For example this image should be uploaded to the Tomodachi Life gallery, but would not go into the Tumblr gallery due to the former being more relevant to the subject of the image. However, this image would be more suited to the Tumblr gallery, due to there being no more relevant gallery available, as well as the fact that the Tumblr reply is more of the focus of the image. As well as this, we will no longer allow single images of things you like/dislike (such as this or this) being uploaded to galleries such as Childhood Ruined/Enhanced, for example, due to the subjective nature of these images. Images of this nature will be deleted on site.
Tag All Your Uploads
When uploading your images, we ask that you please add any relevant tags that might apply to the image. This means that it is easier for users to find the images they want by using the tag system when searching. Please add as many relevant tags as applicable, using ‘,’ or ‘tab’ to separate tags. Image Editors who come across any untagged or wrongly tagged images are to tag these images accordingly. Also, please do not add joke tags unless accompanied by legitimate tags, as this makes it harder for us to find untagged images.
Source Your Uploads
We also ask that users source their work in the notes section, if applicable, so to give original creators credit for their work. It can be hard to find sources after uploading, so we ask that users please do this beforehand if possible
Mark All Spoilers
Any spoiler images posted to galleries must be marked as such. Due to the difficult nature of defining what makes a spoiler, we ask that you please follow the guidelines of ’If you have to think about it, it is most likely a spoiler". Image Editors who come across unmarked spoiler images should mark the images accordingly. Should any disagreements come up over whether an image should be classed as a spoiler, we ask that you please contact a mod or admin, so that we can determine the best course of action.
We ask that you please maintain a friendly atmosphere within the image galleries. Content posted with the aim to slander other posters, the entry poster (such as OP is a Faggot), further personal agendas, or general public shaming, will be dealt with severely, and will lead to suspension and eventually bans.
If there is anything you are unsure of, please leave a message in this thread, and we will respond as soon as possible.
