The following suggestions are designed to make /r/punk a healthy community and vital resource:
News, interviews and tour dates are encouraged — especially if it helps to spur interest at the local and international levels. In-depth discussions on all aspects of punk culture, from DIY projects to neighborhood bands, are even better.
Adding info to your song posts — genre, location, year — gives us an incentive to check out your submission and makes it easier for us to discover bands in our neighborhoods.
Repetitive discussions on stale topics — What’s the meaning of punk? You’re not a punk if you do X, Y and Z — will be removed, as will well-known songs by popular bands that any punk will surely be familiar with.
To give discussion posts better visibility, refrain from posting image macros, memes and other low-effort content; visit /r/punkmemes or /r/punkshots instead. Use the discussion threads to ask for recommendations.
Use the search function and scan the sidebar before you post.
As a submitter, expect blowback from the community and be prepared to engage your critics. As a commenter, add more to the discussion than a sneer and a downvote.
Follow [reddiquette] (http://www.reddit.com/wiki/reddiquette). Downvote content that contributes nothing to the community — not stuff that differs from your personal tastes. Unnecessary downvoting chokes varied content creation and discourages unique submissions.
Check the /r/punk wiki for more information and resources.
