    meme and gifs

    are these allowed now? ive been infracted for using harmless ones before yet now i cant seem to find anything in the rules and some people are using them constantly and sometimes with the purpose to directly insult someone.. yet nothing happens.

    have the rules changed?

    Nah the memes either get removed or you get infracted, atleast thats happening to me.

    In some forums they're being deleted if they're being used in an inappropiate way or just for no reason. Generally they're not accepted, but you can slip one up once in a blue moon.

    Memes and image macros are not allowed. They are considered spam and add nonconstructive filler to discussion. Please report them when you see them.

    Length is not a relevant factor at all with videos.

    There's nothing against posting an embedded video clip as long as it is on-topic and adds to the discussion and isn't just used as a video replacement for a meme image macro.

    Also the video can't contain an forbidden things even if they are somehow relevant to the discussion.

    Yes, good point. The video content is still bound to forum rules.

    Yeah for the exception of the Fun Stuff and Chat Zone forums where this is more lenient and you can post pretty much any of them as long as it isn't stuff considered NSFW and you just don't spam it just to spam, Funny Pictures thread is a good example of this.

    Does a simple 'Report Post' with a reason suffice for this? That's what I've been doing.

    "An image macro is an image superimposed with text for humorous effect"
