Submission rules

Rules are zero-indexed. If they do not appear zero-indexed you are asked to contact Friend Computer for recalibration.

  1. For a submission to qualify it must satisfy at least one of the following:

  2. The content disregarding the title and superimposed text must be directly related to programming or programmers. (*) (*) (*) (*)

  3. The title or superimposed text must substantially enhance the content such that it can stand on its own as an analogy to programming. Note that programming here is interpreted in a narrow sense, an analogy to something related to programming, feelings about programming, reactions to programming etc. is not considered sufficient. (*) (*)

  4. No hotlinking allowed without explicit permission, unless it is obvious that the host allows it (eg. imgur). (*)

  5. No rehosting allowed without explicit permission, unless it is obvious that the host allows it. Rehosting for the purposes of offering a direct link to an image is allowed in the comments. (*)


  7. You may not repost anything that has been on the first two pages (first 50) of trending posts within the last week, or has been posted last time less than two days ago (this is considered as duplicates)

  8. Anything on the first two pages (first 50 posts) of the top of all time must not be reposted more often than every 6 months. (*)

What is 'obvious' or 'substantial' is left to the discretion of Friend Computer, but suggestions (reports) are welcome.

With regards to commenting, please follow reddiquette.
