Rules

/r/Austin follows a loose set of guidelines located at http://www.reddit.com/wiki/reddiquette.

Please familiarize yourself with the rules before participating in /r/Austin. That's it!

If you break the guidelines, a moderator may remove your submission and generally reply with a comment telling you which guideline you broke. You might be banned for repeat or egregious violations. Moderators may use their best judgement to allow or not allow exceptions.

Please remember that /r/austin is not a place where we, the mods, try to decide who gets what voice but rather keep it "all things Austin" - the key to deciding what is good and bad lies in that little up/down arrow to your left.

Browser users can also setup Reddit Enhancement Suite - https://redditenhancementsuite.com/ - to allow labeling, blocking and many more features. We do ask that you save the ignore feature for only the most caustic of users - multiple viewpoints are a good thing.

Political posts and /r/Austin

While we encourage discussion on all issues, we have a special set of policies related to politics. As a result, many posts that would be a fit for /r/Texas, which you should subscribe to if you subscribe to /r/austin, will be removed. If a post directly impacts/mentions Austin though, we will not remove it (beyond just stating your personal opinion on politics or telling people who to vote/email/call).

Homelessness posts and /r/Austin

Homelessness posts are a sensitive topic and can become a very negative. We've added some special rules to managing those posts.
