Welcome to r/ethereum – the Reddit frontpage of the Web 3.0! Read this to get started :)

Welcome!


With the magical influx of new readers, I would like to warmly welcome everyone to r/ethereum. Please protect this community’s philosophy by respecting our rules (see sidebar or scroll down). Let me quote the most important ones here for reference:

  • Keep price discussion and market talk to subreddits such as /r/ethtrader.
  • Keep mining discussion to subreddits such as /r/ethermining.
  • Keep plain ICO advertisements to subreddits such as r/ethinvestor.

Feel free to use this thread to say ‘Hi, I’m new!’ or ‘Hi, I’m not!’. If you have a question, feel free to comment and ask it below. But first make sure you are fully synchronized and have a look at FAQ on Ethereum Stack Exchange. Do you have any question that feels really dumb? Try r/ethereumnoobies 😀

Don’t forget to check out /r/ethdev for the Ethereum developer community and post your diamond-shaped cat findings r/ethsightings (don’t forget to subscribe!). Thanks for flying with r/ethereum! 🙂


Getting Started


What is Ethereum?

Rules


Below are the rules that Reddit users on /r/Ethereum must follow to participate. These can be used as reasons to remove posts/comments and ban users.

Golden Rule

You are expected to treat everyone with a certain level of respect and refrain from inappropriate behavior. Examples of inappropriate behavior include:

  • Personal insults
  • Threats of violence or attempts to organize attacks
  • Slurs of any kind
  • Posting people’s private information

If you can’t play nice with others, you will not be allowed to post here.

Ether Price, Market and Mining discussions

Discussion related to the price of ether, buying, trading, market speculation, or any other price/market talk should be posted on /r/ethtrader, a third-party Subreddit not moderated by us. In addition, keep mining discussion to Subreddits such as /r/EtherMining.

Duplicate threads

Duplicate threads may be deleted. It is up to the discretion of the mods.

No spamming or drive by posting

Spamming will lead to post deletion and a possible ban. Posts created by accounts that self-delete immediately will be deleted right away – no drive by posting.

Using multiple accounts

Creating multiple accounts to get around Reddit or Subreddit rules is not allowed and will likely result in a permanent ban.

Misleading titles

Posts with purposely misleading or unsubstantiated titles will be removed.

Karma & age requirements for posting submissions

All post submissions should be made from accounts at least 10 days old with a minimum of 20 comment karma. This is to keep trolls and spam-bots to a minimum. Exceptions may be made on a discretionary basis, message the mods for more information.


Moderation philosophy


/r/Ethereum is a place for the open discussion about the Ethereum software, protocol, distributed applications, and related technologies. As moderators, we are here to make sure the discussion stays civil and productive. We will not censor posts based on personal ideology and welcome constructive discourse.

What we ask of our users

  • Please utilize the up-vote and down-vote buttons. This is a built in moderation tool that is very powerful.
  • If you submit a report about a post or comment, please provide as much detail as possible to help us more quickly sort through our reported posts/comments.
  • Please don’t report posts or comments you disagree with, only about things that actually break the rules.
  • We welcome discussions about other crypto-currencies and Ethereum implementations, but if the topic is already being extensively covered by other threads we kindly ask you to consider posting it to a more specific Subreddit. You can check an extensive (but not comprehensive) list of Ethereum-related Subreddits on the “All Ethereum” Multireddit.

Moderation logs

The moderation logs are public and available for review here.
