Every community on Reddit is different, and the culture of each community is shaped by the community rules that moderators help define and enforce. Some communities have strict rules around how you should format a post, others prefer that the discussion stay focused on the community’s topic and restrict off-topic posts. In addition to the rules outlined by communities themselves, all redditors and communities also operate by a shared set of rules that are platform-wide.

If you see an individual or community violate one of Reddit’s rules, submit a report. Your reporting helps make Reddit a better, safer, and more welcoming place for everyone, and is an important way you can look out for your fellow redditors.
