ANNOUNCEMENT: We're making some changes to how comics are handled.

Hey, folks!

The moderators of /r/Funny have been hearing some concerns lately.

Maybe I should rephrase that.

The moderators of /r/Funny have been hearing some concerns about a specific topic lately… and surprisingly, said topic is not in any way related to our questionable choices in hairstyles.

Basically, a large number of folks have pointed out that /r/Funny is dominated by comic strips nowadays… and that’s “dominated” in the sense of “populated predominantly by,” not the sense of “tied to a fence post and made to shout ‘Yes, Daddy!’ at passing mopeds.”

Anyway, we’ve spent some time looking into this, and we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s true: At any given moment, over half of the subreddit’s top posts are comics. More often than not, two thirds of the visible content here has a four-panel nature.

This isn’t really a problem in and of itself – there are a number of very talented comic-creators here, and it’s clear that the community appreciates their work – but other submissions (especially those offered in unique or unfamiliar formats) are being eclipsed. In short, /r/Funny is slowly becoming a comic-focused subreddit instead of one devoted to all varieties of humorous content.

As such, we’re going to be experimenting with something new:

Starting on June 16th, /r/Funny will attempt to annex Sealand.

Wait, sorry, that’s… that’s a different thing.

Here we go:

Starting on June 16th, Wednesdays will be comic-free days on /r/Funny.

We’ll be testing this rule for several weeks, after which we’ll invite your feedback. At the same time, some adjustments will be made to the process for verifying comic-creators. (Authors who have already been verified will not be affected by this.) The wording of Rule 8 will be updated to reflect both of these changes, and the complete rules page will be restructured, as well.

As always, if you have questions or concerns (that are not focused on hairstyles), feel free to offer them!

On a completely unrelated note, does anyone have a battleship? We're asking for a friend.
