Posts must be about serial killers or the subject of serial murder.
BE CIVIL. Attacking users / starting flame wars is not permitted and will get your account temporarily or permanently banned without warning, depending on your record. All users will be punished, regardless of who started it. Adhere to general rediquette at all times.
Don't glorify serial killers. This is a subreddit to read and learn. Glorification / imitation will see you banned, temporarily or permanently.
Report posts and comments that violate our rules. This is the fastest way to help us keep the forum clean. Report: flame wars, bickering that doesn't add to conversation, low effort humor, trolling and offensive content. Just because you disagree with something doesn't necessarily mean you should report it.
Self-promotion / Spam: You are welcome to occasionally share links to your podcast / youtube channel if you are an active member of this community. We no longer allow links to stores that sell serial killer themed merchandise. Offenders will be banned permanently without any warning.
Mark NSFW content. Please tag graphic images/videos as NSFW.
Low effort content will be removed at our discretion. No memes, image macros, or advice animals. Submissions should be thought-provoking and interesting - this is judged at our own discretion.
Don't post personal information. No social media accounts, no phone numbers, no addresses.
Search before posting. We try to avoid reposts, but accept that they are a fact of life. Serial reposters (three or more items) can be banned.
Trolling / Antagonizing. A rule for all the users that like to toe the line and skirt around the rules without contributing anything positive. If you came here to provoke others and generally be a nuisance, you can consider it a fast track to a permanent ban.
Three Strike System:
1st ban: 1 week
2nd ban: 1 month
3rd ban: Permanent
This system is a guideline. You can be banned permanently and without warning for violating our rules.
Current FBI definition of a serial killer: TWO OR MORE separate incidents with a cooling-off period in between.
Mass murderers kill two or more people in one incident in one location.
Spree killers kill two or more in one incident in two or more locations without a cooling-off period.
Posts about figures that don't match the definition (Charles Manson, Jim Jones, hitmen, etc.) will be removed.
