Reddit Day Of

Each day has a new topic. People are encouraged to research and post something they think the community will find interesting. Hopefully readers will learn something new about a topic they previously had little knowledge in. We have few rules but memes/advice animals belong elsewhere.

  • 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).

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.

  • You learn something new every day; what did you learn today?

  • Submit interesting and specific facts that you just found out (not broad information you looked up, TodayILearned is not /r/wikipedia).

Posting rules

  1. Submissions must be verifiable. Please link directly to a reliable source that supports every claim in your post title. Images alone do not count as valid references. Videos are fine so long as they come from reputable sources (e.g. BBC, Discovery, etc).

  2. No personal opinions, anecdotes or subjective statements (e.g "TIL xyz is a great movie").

  3. No news or recent sources. News and any sources (blog, article, press release, video, etc.) more recent than two months are not allowed.

  4. No submissions regarding or related to the following

  5. Recent politics or police misconduct
  6. Inflammatory submissions relating to religion/race/gender

  7. No misleading claims. Posts that omit essential information, or present unrelated facts in a way that suggest a connection will be removed.

  8. Rephrase your post title if the following are not met:

  9. Titles must begin with "TIL ..."
  10. Make them descriptive, concise and specific (e.g. not "TIL something interesting about bacon").
  11. Titles must be able to stand on their own without requiring readers to click on a link. Starting your title with a why/what/who/where/how modifier should be unnecessary.*
  12. "TIL about ..." and other broad posts don't belong on TIL. Try /r/Wikipedia, etc. instead, or be more specific (and avoid the word "about").
  13. "TIL how to ..." posts belong on /r/HowTo.
  14. No submissions related to the usage, existence or features of specific software/websites (e.g. "TIL you can click on widgets in WidgetMaker 1.22").
  15. All NSFW links must be tagged (including comments).

Please see the wiki for more detailed explanations of the rules.
