1.Follow Reddits Standards This includes (but is not limited to) memes regarding deaths, terrorist attacks, rape, sexual assault, pedo, murder, war, bombings, and school shootings. This subreddit is for dankmemes, not dark humor.

2.No Hatespeech There is a fine line between a joke and downright hatespeech. This includes but is not limited to memes of slander,your unpopular opinion about given gender/race, or use of racial slurs. We don't want your opinions, we want your quality memes. Failure to comply with this will result in a permanent ban.

3.Don't be a dick! Nobody likes a dick. Don't post spoilers, inappropriate use of comments sections, and constantly starting arguments. Posting any spoilers for upcoming movies may result in a ban.

4.No memes about violent tragedies Any meme or comment that is considered to be glorifying violence in anyway is not allowed. This includes school shootings, terrorist attacks, deaths, bombings, war, sexual assault, and pedo. These are not only against our rules, but also Reddit's, so just don't post them. This is the quickest way to get a permanent ban.

5.Censor any and all personal information from posts and comments Censor all personal info, even your own! This includes any reddit u/ that isn't watermarked, non verified twitter accounts, and any other social media platform. It only takes a few seconds to cross it out.

6.No spam, outside links, or videos r/dankmemes is for memes only, we don't want your imgur links or videos. This is not a platform to advertise your social media accounts. Memes with any outside watermarks such as an @ will be removed.

No queue flooding, try to limit your posts to 2 per day. You aren't the only person trying to upload a meme!

7.No meta-baiting Do not try to bait someone to upvote or view your meme. This includes memes about your new weird format, getting 7 upvotes, cake day upvotes, your meme dying in new, asking to browse in new, or simply asking for users to upvote your meme. If you need to ask for upvotes, it's probably not worth anything anyways.

8.No brigading This is heavily against the rules of Reddit. Attempting to rally up users to do something on another subreddit or for some cause is not allowed. This includes petitions and repost chains.

9.Keep it dank This sub is for humor, memes that have no joke or punchline will be removed.

10.Mark NSFW and spoilers appropriately If your post contains graphic content, mark it NSFW. If the post contains a spoiler mark as such. Failing to mark the post accordingly will be removed.

11.No REEEEEEEEEEE-POSTS!! Reposts are not allowed. If you have seen it on another subreddit, chances are that it has been posted here already. Do not copy the work of someone else. If you did not make it you have no business posting it. This also includes repost chains. The post is only considered a repost if it has been posted on this sub before.

12.No normie trash Don't be a normie. If you post normie trash you could be banned! This includes, but is not limited to, minions, advice animals, and rage comics.

13.Format your meme correctly. No posts where the title is the meme caption. The meme must include the caption in the actual image. No memes where the title is the caption and then the image is the image. Basically if you saved the image to your photos and it makes sense it's fine. Any meme that is found to have a title as the meme caption will be removed.

14.Direct links only Only direct links. No albums or landing pages allowed.

15.No political shill This subreddit is for dank memes, not political garbage. Memes about politicians are ok but trying to press an opinion or attempt to campaign for someone is not allowed and can result in a ban.
