Welcome to r/ObscureMedia :)
A relaxed place to share and discuss lesser known media: silent films, vintage exploitation flicks, finely aged TV, PSAs and other oddities.
This is a content based sub: we want the goods and nothing else will suffice. Links to blogs or review/digest pages are not welcome.
No posts consisting of a single image.
Short clips from content are not allowed: we want full and complete content. If you wish to highlight a portion of content in a post please use the YouTube timestamps option while still linking to the full content. An example can be found here.
Include the release year in the post title: if not known, an educated guess of the decade will suffice.
Acceptable year labels:
(1985) or (1980)s
The year must only contain 4 digits inside parentheses () using any other format or not including a (year) will result in deletion.
Please search before posting: nobody enjoys obvious re-posts.
No promotion/spam allowed: this isn't the place to promote your music video or short film.
Two postings per user in a 24hr period
No recently created content: in order to discourage promotion, most content created within the past ~5 years will be removed. Blatant Spaming of new content will result in a ban.
No "channel spam'': repeatedly linking to a Youtube/etc. channel is not allowed. Exceptions may be made for users who have uploaded multiple appropriate items to a non-monetized channel. Contact the mods if this applies to you.
Be nice!: if you post a rudely condescending/attacking/generally dick-ish comment you will be banned with no prior warning.
No arguing about what is obscure enough to be posted: this should be left to the domain of the upvote/downvote and the moderators.
No memes, image macros, or reaction gifs.
Any comment containing a "spoiler" must be formatted:
[This is a spoiler sentence.](/spoiler)
The result is:
This is a spoiler sentence.
