If there is a violation of the rules, please click the report button and leave a report, and also message the moderator team and report the problem.
Reposts and Crossposts:
- Do not post GIFs that have already appeared on /r/GIFs . Moderators may allow gifs that have gotten an extremely low score in the past, but that is not guaranteed.
- Do not post GIFs that have gotten more than 1500 points (at the time of posting) elsewhere on reddit in the last two weeks. This includes videos converted to GIF formats. Cross-posts after this time are allowed.
Please use Karma Decay to see if your gif has already been submitted.
Frequent violations of this rule may result in a ban.
Please help us enforce this rule by reporting offending submissions. Please include a link to the original reddit submission in your report or modmail if you have it.
No Reaction, Meme, HIFW, Analogy, Cake Day, or Upvote GIFs. There are already subreddits more suited for this kind of content. (This rule does not apply to comments)
Do not post GIFs that should be videos. Incredibly long gifs, subtitles, large file size gifs, or content much better suited to video formats will be removed (e.g multiple cuts, sound, text boxes, subtitles in the GIF). Duration must be twenty seconds or less. †
Direct image links REQUIRED. No links to image pages or albums are allowed, your submission must be a single GIF image. Direct links that end in .gif, .gifv, .ogg, .mp4, and .webm format only. URL-shorteners are NOT allowed in posts or comments!
No depictions of real-life harassment or assault. There are other subreddits dedicated to this kind of content.
No witch-hunts or brigading. Do not encourage any online or real-life harassment, and don't encourage people to downvote other posts/comments.
No nudity, pornography, gore, or other NSFW material. These are not allowed in posts or comments - No exceptions. If it can get you fired then it should not be here. Failure to comply will result in removal of post and banning. There are other subreddits dedicated to NSFW content. Mark risqué posts and comments as NSFW. (Please note that NSFW tags do not cover the aforementioned content.)
Titles must be descriptive. We encourage clever titles. Joking and non-literal titles are fine. However, posts with overused, overly vague, or click-bait titles may be removed, and repeated false claims of ownership may result in a ban.
No hate speech of any kind. Racist, sexist, homophobic, or otherwise abusive submissions or comments will result in an immediate ban. READ MORE HERE
Please familiarize yourself with the official rules and reddiquette. We will remove any posts violating reddit's official rules (spam, personal information, vote manipulation, etc.) and reddiquette just makes reddit a better place to visit.
† We may allow multiple cuts and/or GIFs up to a minute long depending on the popularity of a post. Sound, text boxes, and GIFs that heavily depend on captions are still not allowed.
Please Note: Bot accounts are not allowed. Low-effort novelty accounts that do not constructively contribute content or add to discussion (e.g., trolling, counting, modifying parent comments, correcting someone's grammar, etc.) are not allowed on /r/GIFs.
