The best post of the day, by net upvotes, receives an Award ^1 . The winner may nominate a future topic. It may take a couple of days for winners to be awarded.
To encourage more variety of content, the top text/self post of the day, by net upvotes, is also eligible for an Award ^1 (More info).
Fridays are Photo Free! You may not direct link to an image as a link submission. Images are fine as part of a text post.
Please upvote generously to reward those taking the time to research and post. Down-votes are disabled, we encourage content & participation.
Don't be put off if the topic doesn't instantly interest you. Even the most mundane topics can have very interesting trivia. We've linked with /r/musicthemetime to post music under the daily topic.
