Everyone is on vacation or is enjoying the summer so this month's transparency report is a bit late and short. The only news we have is that we've added /u/ispyscreenshots, a bot that detects and removes screenshots/pics with added text. We've also welcomed back an old mod, /u/tizorres.
Here are the numbers for July (as always excluding all bot actions):
|July||Data||Difference to last month||Comments|
|Total Moderation Actions||26,058||+1,417||reddit started counting a few new categories like "create awards"|
|Submission Removals (includes spam)||4.321||-4,806||back to the average|
|Comment Removals (includes spam)||6,495||-7,370||back to the average|
|Posts Approved||3,429||+424||about the same|
Feel free to post your own pictures, but please read the rules first (see below), and note that we are not a catch-all for general images (of screenshots, comics, etc.)
(1A) No screenshots or pictures of just a screen.
(1B) No pictures with added/superimposed digital text, emojis, or "MS Paint"-like scribbles. Exceptions to this rule include watermarks serving to credit the original author, and the blurring-out or boxing-out of personal information. Photoshopped or otherwise manipulated images are allowed.
No gore or pornography. Artistic nudity is allowed. NSFW comments must be tagged. Posting gratuitous materials may result in an immediate and permanent ban.
No personal information in posts or comments. No direct links to any social media. No missing/found posts for people or property. A license plate is not personal information.
Stalking, harassment, witch-hunting, or doxxing will not be tolerated, and will result in a ban.
No subreddit-related meta-drama or witch-hunts.
Submissions must link directly to a specific image file, or to a website with very few advertisements. We do not allow blog-hosting of images ("blogspam"), but links to albums on image-hosting websites are acceptable. Advertisements in album titles or descriptions are not allowed.
No posts containing animated images or links to video sites. This applies to all file types. Animated images in the comments are fine.
We enforce a standard of common decency and civility. Please be respectful to others. Personal attacks, bigotry, fighting words, incitements to harass, comments which demean or insult specific users (or groups of users), and other such inappropriate behavior or content is not allowed. Regular or egregious violations will result in a ban.
No posts featuring before-and-after depictions of personal health progress or achievement.
Serial reposters may be filtered.
False claims of ownership (FCoO) and/or flooding (more than four posts in twenty-four hours) will result in a ban.
Content creators are only allowed one link per post. Anything more may result in temporary or permanent bans. Accounts that exist solely to advertise or promote will be banned.
