How To Reddit 101
So you wanna post on Reddit? HAHAHAHAHA oh wait you’re serious? Well, then I guess I am obligated to tell you how to get all the karma, upvotes, and love you can possibly get with minimal AIDS exposure*.
*Lol jk there is no way to prevent the AIDS.
I will updated the OP every couple of days with advice so you can be the best redditor ever.
First of all, you need to familiarize yourself with as many memes as you can. Knowing your memes is the best way to get people to accept you. Obviously, spending time in the community is out because you want to be a good redditor NOW DAMMIT
. So what you have to do is read KnowYourMeme constantly. This can be time-consuming too, however, so really what you have to do is hit “random” and then skim each article. You may not be able to learn the origin of the meme but that’s okay, all memes started on 4chan until Reddit came along, and now all memes come from Reddit.
Another thing you need to know is that you are a redditor
, not a poster
. These things may seem similar, but THEY ARE DIFFERENT
so don’t mix them up! A poster is somebody else who uses other message boards. To put it simply, they are not the in group
, the in group
being you and all your fellow redditors. That’s why you have a different name; so everybody can know just how special you are!
You must also always remember to not call the various subreddits and such boards. BOARDS ARE WHAT
4CHAN HAS REDDIT HAS SUBREDDITS
Now that you are filled in on Reddit’s amazing and diverse culture, it’s time for you to lurk! LOL
JK only noobs lurk. Don’t make submissions yet, first you have to post! The easiest way for people to love you is to make your first post “as a woman, blah blah blah” if it’s relevant. Actually, even if it’s not relevant. And even if you’re not a woman. You’re guaranteed to get tons of upvotes if you say “As a woman” because nobody lies on the internet. NEVER
make a sarcastic comment or call out the blatant lies of the submissions that you’re commenting on because THAT’S NEGATIVE
. Instead go with the flow! If somebody says “My girlfriend gave me this after sexytimes” and it’s a picture of a ribbon with a monkey eating a banana and it says “good eating”, it’s obviously the truth, so instead of questioning the actuality of the guy’s girlfriend, who totally exists, post “wife her”. This is a funny joke and everybody will think it’s hilarious.
Tomorrow, or maybe the day after, I’ll tell you more about how to post, as well as what to make for your first submission and more!
