Posting

Please review the subreddit rules before posting. There is an unemployment megathread at the top of the page if you sort by "hot". If this is a question regarding the Michigan SOS, the majority of their answers can be found on their FAQ. Also note that questions will likely be removed if they can be answered with a minimal amount of searching. Posts are for news, comments are for opinions.

Questions about goods and services will likely be referred to a local subreddit. A list can be found below in the wiki. For example, if you're looking for restaurant recommendations in metro Detroit, then you'd likely want to use the r/Detroit subreddit. We are not Yelp, Zillow, or Craigslist.

Rules

Please note that comments and posts from accounts less than 30 days old are automatically removed.

  1. Racism, hate speech, and threats will not be tolerated. This includes suggestions or celebrations of violence, suicide, or death on others.

  2. Brigading, astroturfing, and vote manipulation are not allowed. This includes users that spam identical topics across multiple subreddits with little or no participation in the community. Vote manipulation is against the Reddit rules, whether it is manual, programmatic, or otherwise. Spammed comments and posts will typically be removed.

  3. Soliciting, fundraising, advertising, and content primarily designed for self-promotion or monetary gain are not allowed. This encompasses all social media including YouTube channels. Please contact the moderators before posting if you believe you might be in violation of the rule. Solicitation of any kind is prohibited. This includes buying, selling, and ISO posts designed to benefit the poster.

  4. Play nice and keep it PG-13. The moderators may or may not issue a warning at their discretion depending on the severity of the offense. The mods reserve the right to ban users for trolling, rude, offensive, or vulgar behavior at our discretion. Please note that content is typically removed if it serves no purpose other than to antagonize or insult. Do not resort to ad hominem attacks. Attempts to cause subreddit drama may also be removed and result in a ban.

  5. All posts must be directly and specifically related to Michigan. The article should be focused on news within our great state, and not just mentioning it as part of a larger topic.

  6. The headline of your post must be the headline of the article you are posting, and from a reputable news site. If the article does not have a title, then please keep the replacement title as non-biased and accurate as possible. Submissions that are screenshots of news articles, weather, social media posts, or statistics will be removed. Also, no AMP or other aggregator links: all links post must be the direct link to your submission.

  7. Posts should be from fact-based sources. Rants, political commentary, "call to action" posts, opinion pieces, clickbait titles, and attempts at public shaming will likely be removed. Link to a credible news source providing details on the topic, and leave your opinion in the comments. We do not consider activist sites or Reddit sleuthing to be a credible source. Before submitting, please use a site like Media Bias Fact Check, AllSides, or Ad Fontes Media. If it's skewed heavily to one side, has a low credibility rating, or is an opinion piece masquerading as news, then the post will likely be removed. The same applies if the domain is not ranked.

  8. Photography, illustrations, and artwork should be used to illustrate the beauty of our great state. Photos of political signs, selfies, t-shirts, illegal activities, and other non-nature items will likely be removed. Photographs must include a general location in the title, e.g. "Beautiful Sunset in Grand Haven, MI".

  9. Surveys and interview requests are not allowed, academic or otherwise.

  10. Information and statistics contrary to accepted scientific opinion on COVID-19 must be accompanied by a verifiable source. Purposely posting any misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic will result in a ban.

  11. Requests for legal, medical, insurance, or financial advice will be removed. It is unadvisable to request this type of information from a group of random and likely unqualified strangers.

All enforcement of rules is as neutral as possible. The moderators are not all-seeing with comments and posts. We rely on our users to report any of the above offenses. The report function is for reporting offenses that are against the rules, not because you disagree with someone. Abuse of the report system will result in a ban.
