|| :-:|:-: Follow reddit rules/reddiquette| This is a given. New music guidelines| Only songs and videos released within the last 30 days can be posted. Check beforehand to make sure a song hasn't already been submitted. The subreddit only allows [FRESH] music after it has been officially released in the United Kingdom (which typically is Midnight GMT, but is Midnight BST during Daylight Savings). Keep in mind this mainly refers to Friday releases; other posts are generally released worldwide. Always remember to use the 'Artist - Song' title format. No illegal media|Do not post illegal streams or downloads of songs/albums. Asking for or posting instructions on how you can get it is also not allowed. These are banned on reddit sitewide, and sharing such material endangers our whole community. If it was an honest mistake, please message us; we'll try to be as lenient as possible. Non-newsworthy pictures|Picture posts that are not newsworthy are banned. You can post non-newsworthy pictures in our weekly general discussions. Articles and links are prioritized over screenshots for news. Pop music?|We are purposely vague on what we consider pop, because it's a difficult genre to define. Usually we'll try to focus on more mainstream pop, but pop-adjacent artists are allowed. In general, the mods trust you all to post relevant music. Music will generally not be removed by a moderator unless it is deemed shitposty or too irrelevant to the subreddit. This rule is subject to moderator discretion, but if you feel a removed post was relevant please notify us! Stale topics | Topics on our Stale Topics list are banned as they have been discussed many times. Please see here for our stale topics. Certain comments are also banned to increase the quality of discussion. Keep things civil | Please do not come here for the sole reason of harassment/flaming. Keep things civil. Use of discriminatory language isn't appreciated. Posts that appear to be baiting arguments will be removed. Attacking other users will warrant a ban. Tabloid material|Remember that the subreddit is /r/popheads, not "celebrityheads". Please make sure that when posting content, it is relevant to pop music and not just the celebrities' lives. Tabloid material would focus on non-newsworthy drama, sensationalist content, and/or dubious sources. Twitter sources that are not official artist/label pages or otherwise verified will be removed and redirected. You are welcome to post any such material in the weekly Teatime threads. If an article wouldn't be written about it in major music publications, chances are it's not for this subreddit. Please do not editorialize article or interview titles except for cases of major announcements.
Use the tags:
[FRESH]: New songs released in the last 30 days. If an album or song is region locked (meaning that it isn't available until Midnight in your region), please wait until after it's been released in the UK (which typically is Midnight GMT (UTC+0) but Midnight BST (UTC+1) during Daylight Savings) to post it. Each user may only post multiple [FRESH] streams 10 minutes apart.
[FRESH ALBUM]: Same rules as [FRESH] apply, but this is to be used for albums, EPs and mixtapes. The 10 minute rule applies too.
[FRESH VIDEO]: Newly released music videos.
[FRESH PERFORMANCE]: New live performances from recent awards/TV shows. No tour footage. Only official sources are allowed, i.e. the official YouTube channel of the award/TV show, so no fan footage either.
[NEWS]: Newly released info by official artist sources or news publications.
[ARTICLE]: Non-news related links, such as interviews, reviews, or other write-ups. Videos will be included under this until we figure out something that isn't useless.
[DISCUSSION]: Thought-provoking posts that start discussions. Please write something in the textbox to kick off the discussion (e.g. suggesting examples or providing your own opinion), don't just pose a question. This is not for links.
[LEAK]: Thread announcing that a project has leaked. Discussing the leaks is fine, but no links. Illegal links are banned sitewide on reddit.
[ORIGINAL]: Links to your own material that you'd like to share with the subreddit. Only OC from regular members will be allowed.
[WEEKLY]: Only to be used on mod-approved weekly threads. See the thread schedule.
[ANNOUNCEMENT]: Official statements from the moderators.
[RATE] and [RATE REVEAL]: Threads for the monthly rates, posted by the hosts.
[PARTY]: Daily plug.dj threads posted by our plug.dj staff.
[MEGATHREAD]: All-encompassing threads accommodating important/notable releases or events. If you would like to create a megathread please ask through modmail.
[GAME]: Informal, fun threads. Please ask the moderators through modmail for permission to host these.
