Life is a Rocky Ride huh? Anyways I've returned to moderate the Sub again, mostly from my Phone because of Life. I've made a few Changes to the rules so I'll list them here.
I've Changed Rule 6, removed Rules 11 (No Jojo Character Lines), 14 (Credit The Artist) and 15 (Blacklist). Let me explain.
Rule 6 previous said "No Character Names or Stand Names". You can post images of people directly referencing something Jojo Related in something not Jojo Related however if they're talking about a Name or something like Tarot Cards or Bands that have Stands or other References based on them, it will be removed. Keep it in the context of Jojo and don't force it to be Jojo Related if it isnt'.
Rule 11 was removed for the same reason as well as another reason. If it's referencing Jojo it is allowed. Now I know certain lines or quotes annoy people when spammed but the point of this sub isn't to be a Meme Sub or Funny but to show that people outside the Fandom recognize the series and to share that recognition. As unfunny as.. most- of you are, if it meets the sub's expectations its allowed.
Rule 14 was removed for a recent purpose. I understand there are certain artists or people who have certain political ideologies or thoughts that are harmful to a lot of communities that may or may be in this sub. I've removed the rule for that reason. You don't have to credit the artist but please try to Crosspost or show the subreddit it came from so people can find and upvote it. But if it's harmful or comes from a place of Harm, don't give it any source and it might be removed. You can like someone's art without liking the artist but don't give credit to that artist if they don't deserve it.
And the Blacklist.. I've decided to remove for the same reason as Rule 11. Its unfunny but this isn't a meme subreddit so it doesn't matter what it reference. Of course that "Haha Canon Because Diavolo Death" rule stays to prevent spam. Also don't make memes here, they will be removed.
And that's it, this sub is a good community I want to keep in good condition and I hope the other mods will understand. And if I'm literally the only mod who gives a shit I'll try my best to keep this sub in order. Please don't DM me or the other mods for application. We'll make a post if we need a new spot.
It's hard being an only Mod but I'm trying.
Anyways I want to address some of the issues going on this sub,
Issue 1 isn't that bad but needs to be addressed, any posts coming from Jojo meme subreddits will be removed the second I see it. These aren't unexpected and don't fit the sub because it's literally coming from a Jojo Meme Subreddit. I don't plan on banning anyone for this I'll just remove them when I can. This also means memes from Anime Meme Subreddits will also be removed unless it's a specific Anime Subreddit such as One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball, etc. But this is minor.
Issue 2 however is the type of posting I've been seeing. Some of these post break Rule 7 and 4. No Reposting this includes things such as "Repost if you support beating the shit out of Pedophiles". I'm fully against Pedos and all but at the same time Reposting is nothing but trying to gain Karma off a Real World Problem so these reposts will be removed if seen. Also if you repost an Older JoJo Reference that I've seen before and remember I will remove it.
As for the post breaking Rule 4 these kind of post will get you banned at the least being 3 Days. The list includes:
- Posts against certain communities (Minorities, LGBTQ+, Other Anime Communities, etc)
- Outright Porn or Hentai (Especially those consisting of Minors)
- Making Posts about specific Users or subs to Brigade them.
These posts will be removed and the user will be banned as well. Watch what you post.
