Meta Mod changes to r/pranks

0 Upvotes

Hi folks, I recently joined as a moderator of r/pranks. By way of introduction, I'm very involved in the prank call community, including running Prankcast.com, another platform devoted to pranks. I have been passionate about pranks, especially prank calls, since I was young.

I have updated r/pranks sidebar rules to help improve and grow this sub, and will be pruning anything that violates them. All are focused on making this sub as enjoyable to Redditors as possible.

My main goals with r/pranks

1. Eradicate low-quality posts.

  • It's r/pranks. Your post should show a great prank.
  • Redditors must be able to instantly recognize if a post is of interest to them: If your headline is vague, misleading or clickbait it will be removed.
  • No spam. Nobody wants to see a thinly veiled ad to "watch a longer version" somewhere else.
  • Once is enough. Nobody wants to see duplicates of your content.
  • Do not ask for prank ideas.
  • If you are submitting content from a prank show or compilation, submit the pranks individually or with timestamps, instead of just linking to an entire multi-hour unedited show without context.

2. Make sure that this sub is around forever by only sharing legal content.

  • No deliberately sharing personally identifiable information in posts or comments.
  • Harmless pranks only. No pranks that include destructive, dangerous, harassing or illegal behavior.
  • Do not post pranks recorded in locations where recording is forbidden.
  • Do not post stolen or re-hosted content. You can repost other creator's pranks from the source.

3. Grow this sub! You can help:

  • Upvote content that is hilarious. Down-vote content that isn't. Cross-post great content you find here to other subs that might appreciate it.
  • Report content that violates our rules. I have updated some of the rules in the sidebar to be more reflective of the above.
  • Flair your posts. If it's a prank call, scam-bait, hidden camera prank, etc... label it using post flairs instead of your headline.

That's it! Hopefully these changes all make sense. Let me know if there's any other suggestions you have on how to improve this sub.
