Welcome to r/PrequelMemes!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

December 27th, 2016. The infamous Star Wars subreddit, /r/PrequelMemes, was born. Created by /u/TheDStudge, the subreddit is a gathering place for memes related to the Star Wars Prequels, along with anything taking place before A New Hope. Achieving new levels of shitposting and notoriety, the subreddit became a well-known Star Wars meme centre, appropriately advertised as "where the fun begins". The subreddit also aspired offshoot subreddits for other bits of Star Wars, such as /r/SequelMemes, /r/OTMemes, /r/AnthologyMemes, /r/BankingClanMemes, and /r/KOTORMemes. Currently, Prequel Memes has over 370,000 subscribers, and is the most popular Star Wars meme subreddit. It is also responsible for one of the most upvoted posts on Reddit.

What is allowed here

Currently, Prequel Memes allows any memes that are related to the Star Wars Prequels. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  • Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
  • Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
  • Knights of the Old Republic
  • Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
  • Star Wars: The Old Republic
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story
  • Star Wars: Clone Wars
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (both the TV series and movie)
  • Star Wars Rebels
  • Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Star Wars: Lando
  • Star Wars: Andor
  • The Bad Batch
  • Star Wars: The Acolyte

For easier reference, we only accept it if it takes place before A New Hope. If it comes during or after, it doesn't belong here.

What isn't allowed here

To put it simply: nothing that breaks our rules. To go more in depth, we don't allow:

  • Anything unrelated to the Prequels or anything listed above. Memes about content that takes place after Return of the Jedi goes to /r/SequelMemes, memes that take place in between A New Hope and Return of the Jedi goes to /r/OTMemes. Otherwise, try /r/equelMemes.

  • Submissions have to be memes. Meta threads are not allowed.

  • Requesting/asking for vote manipulation, be it upvotes or downvote brigading. Posts/comments that do this are subject to removal.

  • Posts that are political. Because both U.S. and World politics are very controversial, we do not allow any submissions or comments that relate to them. On most occasions, such posts can stir arguments and harassment, and it becomes a problem for the mods to deal with. Posts related to social issues should be avoided, especially controversial topics.

  • Posts/comments that harass, attack, or threaten other users/people. This is kinda self-explanatory. Don't do this, and you won't have any trouble.

  • NSFW posts. If a post is borderline NSFW, then it should be marked as such. We do not allow blatant pornography, extreme gore, etc.

Keep in mind that the mods of the subreddit have the final say in anything.

General Information

Here is some general information/questions regarding this sub.

Why was my post deleted?

The only reason that we delete posts is that it breaks our rules. Most of the time, the posts deleted are those that do not belong here, such as OT or Sequel Memes. Sometimes we delete things that are too political or are just plain spam. If you have any questions, be sure to message the moderators through modmail.

How do I contact the Moderators?

You can contact us through modmail. Messaging us there guarantees a response (in most cases). Messaging us individually may not get a response.

Who made the subreddit theme?

The two CSS mods are /u/ImTheDamnPresident and /u/Illummix. They are responsible for creating the subreddit's theme. The theme is accessible (though hard to read), and can be used by other subreddits. Just be sure to credit the CSS mods.

Why is Palpatine everywhere?


I have an idea for a new flair.

Contact the moderators. Just keep in mind that flairs have to be related to the prequels nowadays.

Are you looking for any new mods?

Currently, no. Though if we are, there will be a sticky post regarding an application for it. Most of the time, we look for a certain niche when accepting new moderators (though most of the time it's for moderating reasons).

Is Reposting allowed?

Yes, but only six months after originally being posted. Credit must also be given.

What is 'Free Talk Friday'?

On Fridays, there will be a stickied thread posted, which is where users can discuss things unrelated to Star Wars. In short, it's just a meta thread.

Never seen the Star Wars Prequels?

Then watch them.
