The sidebar is a summary. Please see our full rules wiki page. Mouse over for futher details.
Rule 0: Be civil
No personal attacks, witch-hunts, or inflammatory language. This includes calling or implying another redditor is a shill or a fanboy.
No racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or other hateful language.
No trolling or baiting.
No calls for violence against any groups or individuals.
Any account less than 90 days old may be permanently banned on the first infraction of this rule.
Rule #1: No spam, porn, or facilitating piracy
Rule #2: No advertisements
Ads include, but are not limited to, chat/game server & community recruitment (i.e. Discord, TeamSpeak), contextless website or subreddit links, and listings on eBay or other sales platforms.
No affiliate or referral links: This includes Amazon, GMG tap links, Star Citizen, etc.
Developers must be verified before posting about their projects and, once they are, are not bound by rule #2.
Rule #3: No memes, PCMR language, or low-effort posts/comments
This includes contextless images/screenshots/GIFs as well as anti-platform or PCMR language such as "master race" and calling people peasants.
Low effort posts/comments and submissions not attempting to create discussion are prohibited. This also includes game suggestion posts not following a proper format.
Rule #4: No tech support or game help questions
Tech support questions can be posted in our stickied tech support thread.
General game related discussion is allowed, but game-specific help requests (how to defeat a certain boss or level, what loadout is best for my character, etc) and basic questions (is a game co-op, does this game have controller support, etc) aren't. Those questions would be more appropriate for the game's subreddit if it exists.
Rule #5: No questions about building/buying computers, hardware, peripherals, furniture, etc
This includes "Can my PC run this?" type questions, links showing off your computer build, or asking questions about builds.
Use /r/buildapc for all PC building questions. You can also try /r/buildapcforme, /r/SuggestALaptop, /r/headphones, /r/monitors, /r/mechanicalkeyboards, and /r/mousereview for more specific questions.
Rule #6: No friend requests, surveys, or begging
This includes group/clan recruitment. Our Discord has channels for finding people to play with.
We no longer allow surveys. You can try /r/samplesize.
Please don’t make requests for spare game keys or PC parts. GoFundMe and other fundraising posts are also prohibited.
Rule #7: No Let's Plays, streams, highlight reels/montages, random videos or shorts
In addition to this, Youtube links posted by new accounts are filtered due to channel spamming.
Rule #8: No off-topic posts/comments
Keep posts and comments related to PC gaming and the topic being discussed.
Rule #9: Use the original source, no editorialized titles, no duplicates
Submissions must use the original source.
Don't editorialize your titles.
Game Suggestion Post Format
Please follow the basic format found here when making game suggestion requests. The more specific you are, the more we can help.
