Thank you for moving free talk Tuesday to Friday That feels much better


moon-duster

I second that!


AccomplishedBelt7

Also I Throwback Thursday Good riddance. I won't miss you


jakusnothere

Sadly this just means people will make those posts every day now 😔


AccomplishedBelt7

Who is crypto user?


[deleted]

People from the crypto sub or just straight brick farmers that just put out low effort post like leaks, tweets or repost to earn bricks


FoxoftheLake

Yea those guys are super annoying lmao


jaqenjayz

This seems like an improvement overall. Removing the restrictions on TBT & SS make sense to me since people ignored them all the time and it seemed like it was difficult to remove them in a timely fashion. Thanks for keeping in a Free Talk thread, I like those. Also, I don't know if the mod team was responsible for this, but I've noticed a sharp decline in the number of obvious brick-begging/fodder posts (whether from bots or actual humans). If you guys did something behind the scenes to cause this -- THANK YOU!


BurlsteinBurl

Being ever vigilant to curb bad behavior. Glad someone is noticing!


IRelyOnMemes

Rip throw it back thursday, you won't be missed.


NB_furret

So now we can post concepts every day?


WolfXemo

Correct.


NB_furret

I'm crying and shaking rn


XADkodo2364

u/WolfXemo since Suggestion Saturday is now removed, how are people going to post art? Can they post it whenever they want or what, i’m very confused about this part.


WolfXemo

Yes, art can be posted whenever and skin concepts can be posted whenever.


XADkodo2364

That is such a great change, also i feel like Free Talk Friday should have been moved to Free Weekend (Saturday’s and Sunday’s) Otherwise great changes mods!


w0lver1

Great change, both for viewing and posting content.


Jago1288

I won't miss throwback thursday, but letting any art post/concept post on any day of the week is a step in the right direction.


I_wanna_fuck_Haze

"No nsfw content on usernames" well shit


moon-duster

Great work mods!


Silkysocks777

Pretty decent changes here. Hopefully we will see less memes and more variety. I still think twitter screenshots at some points should be allowed although I'm not sure how that would be implemented without the sub being spammed with them i do miss the simple post with hundreds of comments with discussion but we do have bricks now so now people do it for Karma so it is easily turned into a way to get Karma so I do understand that part. And are locker screenshots still banned?


WolfXemo

> I still think twitter screenshots at some points should be allowed although I'm not sure how that would be implemented without the sub being spammed... Something we can certainly consider down the road. We've seen a lot of positive feedback regarding them being prohibited, and about how a bot posts official Tweets. > And are locker screenshots still banned? They were never completely banned. Locker screenshots focusing on skin combos may have been removed for being FPT, but generally speaking we simply requested that locker screenshots were posted as part of a text post. We no longer require that, so locker screenshots can be posted normally. We may still remove for FPT if they begin to flood the subreddit, but they will be allowed again once their frequency reduces.


Silkysocks777

>Something we can certainly consider down the road. We've seen a lot of positive feedback regarding them being prohibited, and about how a bot posts official Tweets. The bot posting official tweets was definitely great! ![gif](emote|custom_emotes|raptor_up) overall great work!


Xenc

Thanks to u/Haveireddit for maintaining u/FortniteStatusBot ![gif](emote|custom_emotes|raptor_up)


BinxDoesGaming

Hm, in locker posts for people who want to showcase combos— is it okay to redirect them to r/FortniteFashion? It isn't an official one ofc, but I feel like people who love to make combos would love it there. :)


WolfXemo

The community here can certainly point them in the right direction by linking that subreddit, but we (moderators) do not link specific subreddits that are not within our family of subreddits. We do this because we wish to avoid situations where the direction of a subreddit changes and doesn't align with our views, as it then reflects badly on us for linking the community to them. I'm not saying that the fashion subreddit is at risk of doing that, just that we choose to be careful rather than carefree.


BinxDoesGaming

Understood. Usually they have pretty lax guidelines and such, but it's understandable.


G1SM0Beybladeburst

how are switch and mobile players supposed to make memes if they don't have replay mode bruh


WolfXemo

Memes can be created via screenshots taken in the locker, or you can use other Fortnite assets such as promotional images.


Xenc

If anything, these changes make it even easier for Switch and Mobile players. ![gif](emote|emo_pack_1|shark)


Tobicito

Hopefully this can improve the quality of the sub!


JStripe___

These are really good!


BringBackBumper

Throwback Thursday and Suggestion Saturday are no more? Brace yourselves. Massive karma whoring is coming. And why TT when there’s r/FortniteLeaks? Really not a fan of these new rules


Xenc

To prevent r/FortniteBR from becoming a leaks subreddit, but also to give people a place to discuss them.


EpicGamer296

K


breve_ninja

Now this is more like it


Brajker

So that means I will no longer get my post removed if it contains an item sprite or just fortnite images in general?


WolfXemo

As far as humor content is concerned, you still can't use generic meme templates and must either create the content yourself or use other Fortnite assets such as promotional images. If you were to paste weapon sprites on top of the spider-man pointing meme, that would be removed for example.


Brajker

So a post like this won't be removed now? https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/pj74gx/this_season_brought_us_9_new_items_which_one_is/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share


WolfXemo

Correct.


Brajker

Nice! Thx for answering


AutumnFguy

Just say you get to decide what's allowed and what isn't, and done. That's what it all sums up to. Even when people are following the rules your moderator bot still automatically deletes their posts for unrelated reasons. You're always taking a risk when you post not knowing if it's gonna get deleted or not because you accidentally used the wrong word.


Xenc

This shouldn’t be as much of an issue now, but the filters are in place to combat the high level of spam that the subreddit receives daily. False positives are an unfortunate side effect of that, but you can always follow the instructions in the automated message to ask for a manual review.


Xenc

These new rules will hopefully make it a lot easier to post on r/FortniteBR, and make any removals simpler to understand. Feedback is very much welcomed. Huge props to u/WolfXemo for spearheading this! ![gif](emote|custom_emotes|raptor_up)


XADkodo2364

Thank you so much for listening and moderating our feedback, this change has been awaited for a long time now and not it’s finally here, thank you guys so much! ![gif](emote|keeoh_emo_pack|keeoh_love)![gif](emote|keeoh_emo_pack|keeoh_bless)![gif](emote|keeoh_emo_pack|keeoh_gun)![gif](emote|keeoh_emo_pack|keeoh_hey)

get_noob_the_sequel

So now we can just use promotional images or Fortnite related assets to make memes too, and it doesn’t need to be something like a replay mode screenshot? Nice! Now Switch and Mobile players don’t have to rely on shitty meme templates that will get removed within a day!


Xenc

Yes! Huge win for Switch and Mobile.


IkonikBoy

Cool. Will people like sharktoofs or others be able to post skin concepts in the sub?


WolfXemo

Yes. Skin concepts are no longer restricted to Saturdays, and can now be posted any day of the week.


IkonikBoy

Interesting... I wonder if this'll lead to "spam" concepts (by that I mean always seeing concepts on new and almost no memes or text posts).


WolfXemo

It's something we will be watching for. Instead of restricting memes to one day to address their frequency, we decided to reduce the restrictions on other content so that memes at least need to battle for the spotlight.


IkonikBoy

Cool


LadyofpureLuck

An interesting idea. Let's see how it plays out!


[deleted]

[удалено]


IkonikBoy

I also like seeing concepts, but no restrictions worries me


WolfXemo

If over the next few weeks you feel that removing the restrictions is a more negative than positive change, I would encourage you to create a `Subreddit Feedback` thread expressing that. That will allow the community to weigh in with their thoughts as well, and gives us a better indication of how the community feels about it.


IkonikBoy

Thanks for the suggestion!


KawaiiKoalaxo

Lol ok


jonnythegamemaster

RIP Suggestion Saturday. You won't be missed. Let creativity reign!


swagzard78

So no more concepts...? At all...? Not A Fa~~bio~~n


WolfXemo

Quite the opposite. Concepts can now be posted any day of the week.


unaviable

Really ? Still won't budge on the English rule? Pathetic


almathden

How many languages are you willing to moderate in?


unaviable

No it's not about that. They said "all content must be English" so this relates also to concepts post or clips which uses your country inagme language and even though it might be something good it get removed because you don't play with English language settings


Xenc

It’s to prevent inappropriate content sneaking by, and to avoid division within the subreddit. This also applies to converting your comment into binary text. Your post won’t be removed simply because you don’t use English language settings in-game.


almathden

> even though it might be something good and how do the moderators decide that, if it's not in a language they understand?


Scottie0319

I know! I hate this. I come from a Scottish/German dad and know gaelic and German and Native American mom. I’ve learned Spanish and it’s way easier to speak German. Reading that rule made me not sure whether to join this sub, I was like that sounds xenophobic. Just cause they don’t understand it doesn’t mean they can just choose to not have them uploaded. But they have no issue letting people post 90+ posts of exp issues, bad drawing of fan made skins and the same 69 questions about Fortnite crew which are always asked. And keeping them mostly all up


Benkos_Game

How are you supposed to moderate something if you don’t even understand the language in the first place? I know there are multiple languages, but not everyone can understand or speak all of them, so keeping it to just one language makes sense.


IdkAUsername98765

What about epic plz Wednesday?


WolfXemo

No longer a thing.


IdkAUsername98765

Ok thanks for the info. I managed to participate in 1 though


IdkAUsername98765

guess I’m lucky


gh0stly2

Good changes but i still think the text post rule sucks. Most people on reddit just don’t want to expand a text post and would rather see the text in the image. Especially if you include some pictures in it. Don’t know why that would be allowed as an image post But again other than that, good work


Academic-Ad6753

Won't miss Suggestion Saturday! Now I can post concepts everyday


DaRealUFO

Thank you for removing Suggestion Saturday!!!


Noobpoob

No suggestion Saturday ;_; You can post suggestions everyday :D


NoMetal4579

Is there still salty sundays


WolfXemo

Yes, there is an updated Weekly Topic Thread schedule at the bottom of the post


stf29

>trawl tuesday…leaks will be removed Thank you so much!!! The sub being flooded with leaks from those 2-3 users every tuesday was getting quite annoying On another note, can anything be done about the vast quantity of low effort discussion posts? Discussion is great, but it just feels like the front page is full of a generic question (“what’s your favorite skin?”, “best event?”, what do you think of [item]?”) accompanied by a generic fortnite image from google


Paulemon

“No karma farming”. Hmm, the past 15 posts I’ve seen have been karma farms. Hopefully this rule works.


BlackSheepwNoSoul

if i'm being honest, and i usually am, i think the majority of users won't even realize they broke a rule til you enforce it. Depending on the effort to post it may or may not cause a bigger issue, as of right now i have 2 posts that flew without knowing the rules very well, i just assumed it was more or less PG-13. I tried reading through the rules and i got a little lost if i would be breaking the rules by posting a YT video i made with PG-13 Humor and limited promotion. i sort of like to come at transparency with a caveman summary. would a TLDR be possible?


2tec

Personally I think the rules are overly restrictive in terms of community efforts to organize. Obviously Epic doesn't value real criticisms and has taken steps to sanitize and whitewash discussions. This isn't free speech, this is a controlled discussion for the sake of fans only. In my opinion, this is just more unethical corporate and upper class control and censorship. :-(


Narrative_Causality

Hi I didn't know where else to ask this since it's such a simple question and my topics about it get immediately removed: Is there a Loki dagger cosmetic item? It seems wrong to have him swing a staff around.
