Meta post: Policy Change: Submissions Require Manual Moderator Review (+Mod Hiring!)

Keep this subreddit HIGH QUALITY by observing Reddiquette and the rules:

  • Keep it civil. Do not personally insult other Redditors, or post racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise discriminatory content. Constructive debate is good; name calling is not.
  • Do not submit low investment content. This subreddit is for genuine discussion. Low effort content will be removed per moderator discretion.
  • No meta discussion. Don't like /r/politics? We don't care. This isn't the place to discuss it. Meta content includes things like talking about reddit, other subreddits, redditors, and moderators. All meta content will be automatically removed. Repeat offenders will be banned.
  • Questions/prompts that boil down to "Thoughts?" or "Discuss" are low effort and will be removed.

Rule breaking content will be removed at moderator discretion.

Submission rules

New submissions will not appear until approved by a moderator. We ask for your patience while we work through the queue.

Submissions should be inviting and pertain to the topic you want to discuss. This is best done in the form of a question. Please observe the following rules:

  • Do not use all caps.
  • Do not use tags (e.g. [Serious]).
  • Do not use derogatory, demeaning, or otherwise inflammatory titles.
  • Do not ask loaded or rhetorical questions.
  • Do not submit content that does not discuss politics (such as meta posts, discussion of other subreddits, other redditors or moderators).
  • Do not create DAE, ELI5, CMV, or TIL type submissions.
  • Do not create submissions to soapbox your political agenda. /r/PoliticalDiscussion is here to discuss and ask about current politics. It is not for here for you to soapbox or campaign. Post your opinion pieces to our sister subreddit, /r/PoliticalOpinions.
  • Do not post links to news or blogs. You can post sources to provide background or supporting information, but you must provide a summary of the source. Do not circumvent text only submissions by simply posting a link in the text box or copying material from an outside source.
  • Fight your own battles. Please do not ask for material to back up your position on an outside argument, or for help with homework or independent research.

If your submission doesn't ask a question or invite discussion, it probably does not belong here. For more details on posting see our wiki.

Please use your power to upvote quality content, and downvote content that detracts from the quality of this subreddit. Please report content that breaks the rules.
