This sub is intended to be a place where people come to learn, or teach. But shit that's just funny is also okay, as long as it's topical. Posts selling original merchandise are allowed.
If you want to post an image, you must also post a comment explaining what we're looking at, with as much detail as possible. Funny shit is exempt from this rule, as are works of art.
Users are strongly encouraged to submit posts for technical or career assistance. /u/datums personally guarantees that all possible resources will be mobilized to provide assistance if necessary.
Don't be an asshole. Some people here do have Aspergers, or autism, or an anxiety disorder, or whatever else. It's important that they are comfortable sharing their ideas here. Also, revealing people's user names counts as being an asshole.
Re-posts less than a month old will be removed.

If you are planning to do something potentially dangerous outside of your area of expertise, please post about it here beforehand for review.
Don't be a fanboi and hoard old shitty deleted AvE movies. Don't post links to dickheads that rip obsolete VJOs. Enjoy and move on; basking in false nostalgia of shop chuckles past is contrary to the natural order.
