Posting Rules

  • NO editorialized titles, memes, image macros, blogspam, self-promotion, spam, reposts, insults or incivility, trolling, bigotry, or profanity. Nothing that's rude, vulgar or offensive.
  • No URL shorteners, archive links, bookmarking links, Twitter, Facebook, personal blog posts, polls, surveys, petitions, fundraising, school projects, videos, live-streaming, podcasts, or GIFs.
  • All posts must be specifically about California and be of interest to folks from across the state. If a post is of only local interest or the only connection is a person was born or lives in California or a company is based in California, it is not appropriate. This also includes local crime reports and local politics.
  • All posts must be about current California news and info. (Some California history is also cool.)
  • California is HUGE. If your title doesn't include it, add the location in brackets like this [Santa Ana, CA].
  • For regional questions, try /r/AskLosAngeles, /r/AskSF, or /r/AskSanDiego or other local subs instead.
  • For questions, please be as detailed and specific as possible to make it easier to answer your question.
  • Especially if you have a DMV, vacation, travel, working here, or moving here question, please search the sub's archives because it's likely your question has been answered multiple times in the past.
  • Please don't say Frisco, San Fran, The OC, Diego, or Cali. Most Californians don't use those nicknames.
  • All image posts must be by the original creator, have a link crediting the original creator, or have a link to the original source(s) of the image(s).
  • No ALL CAPS words or text, no bold text, and no #Headline text formatting! This is like SHOUTING and is considered rude. No ALL CAPS TITLES, even if the original headline was in all capital letters. No emoji. 😟
  • No political news unless it is specifically about California.
  • No missing persons, lost pets, or stolen car posts.
  • Do not put "x-post", "xpost", or "crosspost" in your title.
  • No slideshows or multi-page articles.
  • No posts using the shortlink. If you link to a thread outside /r/California you must use the np subdomain for no-participation mode.
  • If you ask a question, you must reply to at least one comment within 24 hrs or your post will be deleted.
  • All posts must be in English.
  • Reddit is not Twitter or txt messaging. Complete sentences and proper spelling are expected. No #hashtags or @at-tags in titles.
  • Op-Eds (opinion pieces and editorials) must be labeled [Op-Ed], [Editorial], or [Opinion]. Political columns should be labeled [Political Column].
  • Additional posts on the same topic with no new info will be deleted.
  • Please use descriptive titles. Posts with vague titles will be deleted.
  • Don't modify article titles except to add a location in brackets unless the title is excessively misleading, vague, or clickbait-ish.
  • Questions that can be easily answered from the Wikipedia or by a quick Google search will be deleted.
