*Is there a policy you dislike? Is there a weekly topic thread you wish was brought back? What is it about that one rule you wish was abolished months ago, that just grinds your gears?* Please join us beginning on **Monday, April 18th** in a *Subreddit Town Hall* to discuss the current rules and policies on the subreddit. We want to talk with all of you to see what rules/policies can be removed/added/revised, as we continue taking steps towards a better ruleset. We hope to see you there! --- ^(Need a reminder? You can find the Town Hall, and other upcoming threads in the subreddit sidebar, or the About tab if using the Reddit app, under the "Upcoming Events" section.)

Was there a trial that prohibited low effort google image question posts like "WHAT IS YOUR FAVORTITE (something) or WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT (something)?


ralucatosa

Question style posts were already addressed with our Media Guidelines: > Questions (e.g., "What is your favorite skin?") containing stock media must be submitted as a text post This trial completely prohibits stock media on the subreddit, whether they are a question or not.


Batonniik

Thank you mod


ralucatosa

You’re welcome!

Can the next Media Guideline trial prohibit the overused meme format of characters standing in a POI with a back and forth dialogue exchange?


WolfXemo

We don't currently have another trial scheduled, but the information in the stickied comment may be of interest to you!


Jtneagle

I'll tune into that and toss my hat in the ring, thanks.

I have a feeling that this is a bit too far. I mean, what if you want to make a meme about, say Klombo. He's vaulted, so people would have to probably use a stock photo of him as opposed to going as far as to build a full on model in creative or something like that. I think this rule is too far.


FunnyCobra002

100% agreed


ConversationOk5255

Nice!


Cermonto

I'm kinda mixed on this. One hand it will help clear some posts up, but at the same time, making a post about something like different items and opinion and discussion posts are made harder to make since you have to take the images yourself, and the replay feature can be a bugger sometimes.


WolfXemo

That's why we opted to run trials first, rather than make an immediate decision on a rule change. We will be taking the feedback from this trial, as well as the upcoming town hall, into consideration when deciding the next steps.


Magicat_Vestigo

Uh… not sure how I feel about this one…


Xiballistic

Why? Its gonna be helpful to clean it up from just the generic posts of stuff like: “Whats your favourite skin?” Or “ whats your favourite battle pass?” With that kind of title and a random fortnite image


WolfXemo

To be clear, the "Question-style posts" were [already addressed with the original clause](https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/q0ss4n/updated_media_guidelines_questionopinion_style/), which was as follows: > Questions (e.g., "What is your favorite skin?") containing stock media must be submitted as a text post This trial is the more severe implementation of that clause, where its now applicable to *all* posts containing stock media (question or not), and it completely prohibits stock media on the subreddit.


Tian610

What would be considered as stock media? For example, if someone made a meme where half of it was fully self made and the other half involved a stock image, would that count?


WolfXemo

For the sake of this trial, the clause applies to posts that include stock media in any capacity So the example you provided would be subject to removal


ComfortableTutor284

this is so dumb, the rules r shit enough, now they make this


Smiffy0914

This isn’t permanent. It is just a trial for now. We want the communities feedback. First we ran the stock media in the form of a text post. Now we are running this trial.

FunnyCobra002

This doesn't sound like a good idea

Ok, this feels a bit to restrictive
