BEFORE POSTING HERE, PLEASE READ THIS GUIDE on how to find what you need using regular means!

  1. Be civil and respectful to each other.

  2. Reply “Solved!” to the correct answer. When what you’re looking for is found, reply “Solved!” to the comment that gave you the answer.

  3. Title format + body. You must have [TOMT] at the beginning of your post title. Add the type of media to the beginning of your post and a time period, e.g. “[TOMT][MOVIE][2000s]” so that it’s easier to scan. Only ask one question per post. Make both your title and body as detailed as possible to help the solvers. Include the timeframe/year for older items, we don’t know timeframes of your lives and when you were a kid.

  4. No personally identifiable information. No posts such as “who is this person” or with e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

  5. No gore or animal violence. This will immediately result in a permanent ban. Please note that horror films are ok, provided they have a NSFW tag.

  6. No “doo-doo-doo” posts. When you are looking for a song and you know the melody, include either a recording (Vocaroo) or an online sequencer. Posts that do not conform to this, and describe it e.g. “do doo dooo”, are subject to removal. If you think the song you are looking for sounds similar to something else, providing a link to that song would be helpful as people may not know the song in question.

  7. Do not delete post/answer. Do not delete your post after it has gotten some attempts at an answer or is solved. Do not delete your (correct) answer after it has been acknowledged. This will result in at least a temporary ban.

  8. No reposting within one week. If you do not get an answer, wait at least a week before resubmitting your question.

  9. Include link to source/no URL shorteners. When posting a response, try to include a link to a source of some sort. Please do include the full title of what you are linking to. Do not use URL shorteners, tumblr, or Amazon partner links in the body of posts or replies as they get caught by the spam filters.

  10. No porn. Use /r/tipofmypenis for porn. Depending on the content, NSFW posts are allowed.

  11. Frequently Asked Questions

  12. Need help with a tune? Post a recording using Vocaroo!

  13. Can't hum/whistle to save your life? Try Pandalism's online sequencer!

  14. Have part of the tune? Try identifying it with Shazam!
