Sometimes spam is obvious, but often it is a gray area. Please read these guidelines.
- If your contribution to Reddit consists primarily of submitting links to a business that you run, own or otherwise benefit from, tread carefully.
- If you flood a Reddit community with posts or comments, you may be considered a spammer. Instead, post one or two times and see what happens.
- If other users in a community historically downvote your posts or ones similar to yours, but you feel the need to continue submitting them anyway, you may be considered a spammer.
If you really want to play it safe, write to the moderators of the community you'd like to submit to. They'll probably appreciate the advance notice. They may also have community-specific rules that supersede the guidelines above. And that's okay, part of letting users create their own Reddit communities is allowing them to define what's relevant and what's spam.
