A story about Kevin should be something that makes people laugh.
Do not post these:
- "I know someone whose name is Kevin"
- META posts
- Fictional kevins
Please avoid these:
- One-liners. Elaborate past a single sentence to make your story more interesting.
- Stories about people who annoy you for reasons other than stupidity. Your friend who kills the mood, your rude coworker, your roommate who won't do the dishes, etc.
These posts may be allowed if they are interesting enough, and will be flaired with the more appropriate subreddit.
What is a Kevin?
A Kevin is someone who consistently or greatly shows a complete lack of intelligence through incompetence of social and societal norms, or is purposefully antagonistic in their poor decision making. Remember the kid in your class who would constantly get in trouble for really dumb things? He was probably a Kevin. Family members, friends, coworkers, and classmates can all become Kevins.
So, what DOESN'T qualify as a Kevin?
Anyone who makes small, understandable mistakes, is not a Kevin. If they misspell a word, or make a simple mistake, they are not a Kevin. They dropped something? Not a Kevin.
How should I format my post/What stories should I tell?
Multiple short stories per post are encouraged, but if the level of severity is high enough, one longer story is fine. If you view the top posts of the subreddit, you can find several good examples of the content that is expected on the subreddit.
What should I do if I see a post that isn't Kevin-ish enough?
Report the post. We will review it, and likely remove it if it does not fit the Kevin guidelines. If so, it may be flaired with the appropriate sub or the reason for removal.
