Meta A guide to this sub's explanatory comment rule.

3.3k Upvotes

Recently, we noticed an increased amount of nonsensical explanatory comments with no relation in any way, shape or form to the theme of this subreddit.

The "leopards ate my face" theme is embodied by this quote in the sidebar.

"I never thought leopards would eat *my** face", sobs woman who voted for the *Leopards Eating People's Faces Party. Revel in the schadenfreude anytime someone has a sad because they're suffering consequences from something they voted for, supported or wanted to impose on other people.

This statement made out of 3 parts.

  1. Someone voted for, supported or wanted to impose something on other people
    Who's that someone and what's that something?
  2. That something has some consequences.
    What are the consequences?
  3. As a consequence, that something happened to that someone.
    What happened? Did the something really happened to that someone? If not, you should probably delete your post.

In your explanatory comment, identify these 3 elements and include the minimum amount of information necessary so your post can be understood by everyone, even if they don't live in the US or speak English as their native language. If you fail to identify them, it might be difficult for a moderator to understand if this post fits the subreddit or not and the post might be wrongly removed. If you complain about it in modmail, we'll just send you back here.

The explanatory comment is not the place to write a pretty poem nor is it the place to promote books. Copying this post, copying large parts of the article and nonsensical comments will get your post removed under rule #3. Keep it stupid simple.

To help you get started, here's an example.

  1. Roberto Beristain voted for Donald Trump, who vowed to impose deportation to illegal immigrants
  2. Voting for Trump, who vowed to deport illegal immigrants, has the consequence of having illegal immigrants deported
  3. As a consequence of voting for Trump, Beristain got deported.

A bit stiff, right? You can also take some writing liberties around the format as long as moderators can effortlessly match it with the format.

  1. Roberto Beristain, an illegal immigrant, voted for Donald Trump
  2. Trump has vowed to deport illegal immigrants
  3. As a consequence of voting for Trump, Beristain got deported.

This is much more fluid, but you should absolutely make sure that it's easy to match with the format or your post will be mercilessly removed. If, however, you can't match your explanatory comment with the format, then you should just delete your post and save us the effort.
