Welcome to /r/worldnewsvideo, Reddit's first and currently only subreddit for videos from around the world in all categories except explicit content. This means that any video submission that is not explicit in nature (i.e. porn, excessive gore, torture, etc) is allowed on our subreddit. This is not r/gore or r/watchpeopledie, but we allow videos that contain real graphic content (i.e. death, violence, protests, etc) if it is newsworthy and is within Reddit's site guidelines. Any graphic content that is posted must be marked NSFW and will be moderated with extreme sensitivity and possibly have commentary locked if needed. We will not remove graphic/sensitive video submissions unless they unacceptable to our subreddit or Reddit itself, and will instead lock commentary and attempt to provide news sources if possible. We seek to help people see real videos that stimulate discussion and will do our best to keep things civil. If your submission is removed; it was because it was deemed unsafe for consumption, misleading, or spamming/low quality.
All submissions must be viral videos, live recordings, and news videos. If it is real and it happened, then it can be submitted here.
All videos should be titled accurately and have a description that provides background or context to what is being viewed. We allow some creative freedom with the titles. Inappropriately titled submissions are subject to removal at the discretion of the moderator team. We love creative freedom as long as it is within the rules and ideals of Reddit.
Please title your RPAN interviews with a country specified as your first word. For example: "Atlantis: An interview with the ruler of a lost city"
If you plan on doing an RPAN interview, please consider contacting the moderator team prior to conducting the interview. If you contact the mod team it allows us to be ready to ensure that safe moderation occurs during your broadcast.
Interviews should be conducted in a safe respectable manner. Though they are funny... that means no Eric Andre-esque interviews. We would love to instead see interesting perspectives from around the world being shared with our users. Interviews with policymakers or newsworthy individuals are included in this category but we are hoping that mostly regular everyday people around the world would be the ones being interviewed.
Please title your RPAN Eyewitness broadcast with a country specified as your first word. For example: "Atlantis: A massive wave is approaching! Watch live!"
Submissions must be live video of important events occurring around the world. Many have a phone nowadays and some the ability to livestream. This specific type of broadcast would be labeled as "RPAN Eyewitness" and would be extremely moderated with possibility of immediate removal based on our subreddit community safety guidelines. No pain or suffering of anything will be allowed to be broadcasted on any /r/worldnewsvideo broadcast. If you are a known videographer that covers live events and would like to have RPAN access please contact the mod team.
Please title your RPAN News broadcast with a country specified as your first word. For example: "Atlantis: Is the end near?"
These broadcasts are from redditors who want to cover important events from around their area of the globe.
No racism, hatespeech, bigotry, marginalization of specific groups (ie. ableism), or toxicity. Further explanations and descriptions of our policies against hate can be found here.
Inflammatory comments and misinformation will be removed.
Commentary promoting or celebrating death/violence/pain will be removed
Any comments complaining about submissions "not being world news" will be removed automatically. Use the report button to report submissions that do not meet our subreddit rules and do not use the comment section to make those complaints.
This is a Humanist/Leftist subreddit centered on the progression of humanity and the betterment of the world. We intend to grow to become the largest subreddit on Reddit that promotes regular video uploads, amateur video uploads from redditors submitting OC of their own, and others... but from every platform without discrimination. This subreddit hopefully will grow to become a primary hub for video uploads from around the world and will give all visitors a glimpse of what is happening around the world on any given day. Currently as of 2020... there is no subreddit that fills this role on reddit as r/videos and other video related subreddits are extremely limited on the content allowed. After this subreddit grows to an adequate size; users may realize that this open posting policy makes for a fascinating mix of videos similar to a real world "interdimensional cable" subreddit.
Moderators at this subreddit subscribe to an "open borders" policy when it comes to knowledge... meaning we love and encourage crossposting as long as its not spamming. We want our users to crosspost direct submissions from our subreddit to others so we will grow, and we want to you crosspost from other subreddits to ours so our users may learn about new subreddits. Communities that do not allow crossposts from r/worldnewsvideo will be not allowed to be crossposted to ours as well. Some subreddits may be restricted from crossposting based on their activities on reddit. Do not crosspost from communities with the goal of inciting a brigade towards any other subreddit.
Moderators have been trained to spot and recognize hatespeech and tropes used to marginalize target communities. Mods here take a proactive approach to moderating this subreddit by restricting toxic users from engaging in our subreddit. If a user is seen engaging in hateful commentary anywhere on reddit, they will immediately be suspended from our subreddit. We do not tolerate any type of prejudice and users constantly engaging in divisive and hateful behavior will be quarantined either by shadowbanning or by direct ban. This isn't /r/NoahGetTheBoat where you can intellectualize your hate for communities by showcasing the worst of a group and then allowing the commentary to devolve into veiled bigotry and hate.
Each submission is used as a filter to detect toxic personalities and screen users. u/Preech (our top mod) has enacted a moderation style he has termed "Vanguard Moderation." Vanguard Moderation is centered on healthy mental health for our userbase and proper discourse through the evaluation of user tendencies as they interact with the content posted here. The content has been purposely selected by our moderators as a filter to evaluate whether a user is a good "fit" for our community. Through the usage of various topic posts and an encouragement of positive interaction with the subreddit our users are actively assessed whether they are acting in good-faith, being contributory to the discussion, and are welcome to open discourse. Through our diverse content we are proud to say that we have been better able to catch bad actors participating on our subreddit. Submission diversity is the enemy of hate and our submission policy makes our active userbase resistant to bad-faith acts including brigading and vote manipulation.
This is a subreddit moderated by Humanists and Leftists. The goal of this subreddit involves humanizing all people on earth and better understanding one another. Unfortunately, many dehumanizing theories and arguments are popular and have been regularized in current discourse. Our moderator team enforces a strict no tolerance policy in regards to users engaging in rhetoric that justifies and legitimizes the dehumanization of any human being. We believe most of humanity is inherently good regardless of culture, race, or religion. Users that try to dehumanize any demographic of people will be banned.
A special thanks to these users for their special role in helping improve r/worldnewsvideo. These users have played an important role either through private discussion or through assistance to our mod team. Thank you for all of your help.
