/ r / GIFs is one of the largest communities on Reddit, which has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. During that time, we’ve heard a lot of suggestions on how to improve the subreddit, with a few general issues emerging. These included (but are not limited to):
1. Please, please, please, please, * please * relax the rules for rebooking.
2. Increase the allowed length of the sent GIFs.
3. Force everyone here to pronounce “GIF” correctly. (Correct pronunciation uses the same “G” sound that is in the word “garage”.) Punish people who mispronounce it by sending them to The Happy Trapezoid.
4. Seriously, can you do something about this repost specific rule?
In response to these requests, we will experiment with some changes. As such, we encourage everyone to pay attention to how our rules can be adjusted in the coming weeks, as certain shifts may or may not be permanent (depending on how they affect the overall quality of the subreddit). During this time, we are also happy to receive your feedback, questions, concerns and speculations about how the moderation team here actually consists of a few dozen cockatiels who somehow have access to a laptop.
Thank you, as always, for being a GIF subscriber!
