The effect & name refers to people remembering Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s, when he actually survived long after his release.
Filter By Topic (More Coming Soon)
|1. No trolling, aggressive behavior, name calling, bickering
|2. No personal experiences, and stories about changes affecting only you personally. A Mandela Effect, by definition, must affect a large group of people. If it can potentially apply to a lot of people, it goes in the DAE Mega-Thread, otherwise these belong in /r/Glitch_in_the_Matrix.
|3. No low effort posts, or vague/"guess what?" post titles. Thoroughly sum up what your post is about in the title. Vague titles = low upvotes, and very few comments. Also, posts must include specific details indicating why it relates to a known Mandela Effect/the Mandela Effect in general.
|4. Discussion of possible explanations for a Mandela Effect (including false memory) MUST be civil. Being hostile to a person offering a reasonable explanation will be treated the same way as harassing someone who is a M.E. believer
|5. Follow general Reddiquite
|6. No "does anyone else?" posts and /r/tipofmytongue posts. Again, if the Mandela Effect you've posted could possibly apply to a large group of people, , it goes in the DAE Mega-Thread.
|7. No fictional stories, satire and jokes. These belong in /r/MandelaJerk(rarely moderated).
|8. No posts including links with no explanation, blogspam, or conspiracy sites or videos
|9. No posts complaining about downvotes, which is against Reddiquette. These will be removed without warning.
|10. If there is an appropriate tag for your post, you must use it.
