Raddle Etiquette

There are not many general preferences for Raddle usage, but here are some.

  • Content Warnings for violent, distressing, or disturbing submissions are encouraged in the submission title in the form, e.g. [CW: domestic violence]

  • When submitting a PDF, please add the tag [PDF] to the submission title. This is because PDFs are a security concern.

  • Generally, upvotes are for posts that contribute to the discussion and to the site overall, and are not intended simply to show agreement. Similarly, downvotes are for posts that are not contributing to the discussion or to the site overall, and not simply to show disagreement. That is of course except when explicitly stated, like votes or proposals.

  • If you are new to radical politics and interested to challenge the ideas involved, please do not write demanding posts requiring that users write books for you, especially in inappropriate forums. Ideally ask instead for useful reading that already exists, and in forums like f/Anarchy101 rather than f/Anarchism.

  • If you're posting an inflammatory meme that implies that some entire ideological perspective is getting it wrong, please include some of your own explanation, or links to relevant articles explaining your position where possible. Flame wars over misunderstandings are tiresome and rarely help people become less sectarian or defensive.

  • Our users are very security-conscious, so promoting insecure platforms like Discord channels and Facebook is unlikely to go well.
