This subreddit has a few simple rules put in place to ensure everything here is up to a good standard. Breaking these rules will lead to punishment at the moderators' discretion.
1. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. This includes linking to personal information (or doxing), unless it's relevant to the fail (e.g. a tweet about the fail from the streamer).
- 2. Posts must be within the guidelines of the content we allow (Wins/Fails/Drama/Meta/etc). Regular video game deaths or small bugs in games (H1Z1) are likely to be removed. Compilations will be removed as well. Frequently submitted streamers may be held to a higher standard of quality & may be removed if the content does not reach a higher vote threshold.
- 3. Posts must be marked and flaired correctly.
- 4. Streamers sharing too much information or creating drama for drama sake are not fails. (As voted on by the users) And will be deleted.
- 5. All Twitch clips and VODS that are against ToS/NSFW are required to have a mirror in the comments or your post will be deleted within an hour of posting.
- 6. No self promotion (This includes having your mods or friends post for you).
- 7. No inside jokes (IE. Things people won't get unless they watch the particular streamer you're posting about)
- 8. No Click Bait Titles
- 9. No politics / Personal Agenda
- 10. No "He said it" posts
- 11. No Swatting related posts
- Please report posts which you feel break any of these simple rules.
- If a video goes down, it may be up on this website.
These guidelines are for if you'd like to get everything perfect. You don't have to abide by these, but doing so can make your post far better.
If your post is a long video (i.e. five or more minutes long), be sure to put a timestamp of the beginning of the fail in the comments. If it's a YouTube link, you can append it onto the end of the URL to automatically start playing at a specific timestamp, e.g.
If you're submitting a link directly to a Twitch VoD, a YouTube link that isn't yours, etc., it's a good idea to rip it and upload a mirror somewhere else, just in case the original gets deleted somehow.
If you're submitting a frequently posted streamer, be aware your post may be removed if it doesn't meet a higher vote threshold than non-frequently submitted streamers. You may be better off posting in that particular streamers subreddit or community.
If you submit a video of a Text to Speech donation, read donor name, or song with racial slurs in it, it will be removed.

Kaceytron, Ninja, zyke, Mira, PantsAreDragon, Cyberdemon531a, BurgerAndy, Athene, Avxry.
