/r/technology is a place to share and discuss the latest developments, happenings and curiosities in the world of technology; a broad spectrum of conversation as to the innovations, aspirations, applications and machinations that define our age and shape our future.
Submissions must be primarily news and developments relating to technology
Self posts must contribute positively to /r/technology and foster reasonable discussion.
Submissions relating to business and politics must be sufficiently within the context of technology in that they either view the events from a technological standpoint or analyse the repercussions in the technological world.
i) Submissions violating the guidelines.
ii) Images, audio or videos: Articles with supporting image and video content are allowed; if the text is only there to explain the media, then it is not suitable. A good rule of thumb is to look at the URL; if it’s a video hosting site, or mentions video in the URL, it’s not suitable.
iii) Requests for tech support, questions or help: submit to /r/techsupport, /r/AskTechnology, another relevant community or our weekly Support Saturday threads.
iv) Petitions, Surveys or Crowdfunding (Including ICOs) – submissions of this nature will be removed.
v) Submissions discussing the subreddit itself; they should be submitted to /r/TechnologyTalk, or messaged to the moderators of the subreddit.
vi) Submissions discussing one or more incidents of customer support.
vii) Mobile versions of sites, url shorteners: please directly submit the desktop version of a webpage in all cases.
viii) Social media links/profiles or promotions (eg. Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest etc). Tweets should not be used as a news source unless an official announcement by a verified company or spokesperson.
Submissions must use either the articles title and optionally a subtitle. Or, only if neither are accurate, a suitable quote, which must:
adequately describe the content
adequately describe the content’s relation to technology
be free of user editorialization or alteration of meaning.
If you see a rule-breaking submission, please report it and message the moderators with your reason.
Want to host an AMA? Please message the moderators.
Our /u/AutoModerator configuration may be viewed here.
Removed threads will either be given a removal reason flair or comment response; please message the moderators if this did not occur.
All legitimate, answerable modmail inquiries or suggestions will be answered to the best of our abilities within a reasonable period of time.
Rule violators will be warned. Repeat offenders will be temporarily banned from one to seven days. An unheeded final warning will result in a permanent ban. This may be reversed upon evidence of suitable behavior.
