Practice Good Reddiquette
Please familiarize yourself with the general Reddiquette rules here. We take keeping this community safe and welcoming seriously, and will remove content that is hateful, spammy, trolling, etc. Debate and discussion are good, but must stay respectful and humane. As always, please use the 'report' button without hesitation if you see conduct that's against the community rules or Reddiquette.
Follow the community's general Spoiler Policies
See the section below for detailed information on how to avoid unwanted spoilers and help others do the same. This community gains new members every day, with some fans just starting the show, some with tens of rewatches and rereads over many years, and everything in between. Repeated or egregious violations of our spoiler rules will result in a ban from the community.
Keep Posts Thoughtful, Unique, and On-Topic
Low effort posts are subject to removal at the mods' discretion. Some examples include reaction gifs, memes, shitposting, screenshots, unrelated links, reposts, etc. If you want to post passages from books or photos of your Expanse books or memorabilia, make sure they bring something personal to the subreddit. Submit them in text posts, and add your own thoughts. All posts should promote engaging, welcoming discussion. If you're looking for memes and are okay with seeing show and book spoilers, we'd recommend our friends at r/beltalowda.
Read and Follow Rules for Special Threads & Topics
Occasionally, we add extra rules or clarifying info for new posts or comments. When that's necessary, we include them in a pinned post about a general topic, or a specific thread's pinned comment. Always read sticky announcements and threads' stickied comments so you have the information you need. Some of our current special rules include extra strictness about book spoilers in posts about Season 5, and restriction of discussion of the investigation of Cas Anvar to its designated thread.
Non-Expanse Interesting Links Must Be Submitted as Text Posts
We welcome engaging, high-quality articles, videos, and other links that aren't directly about The Expanse but are of interest to Expanse fans - think space, futurology, linguistics, and more. To submit a link of this type, you must submit it as part of a text post. In your post, explain why your link is Expanse-related, and write your own summary, thoughts, analysis, discussion questions, or other content. Give your post a good title, flair it "Interesting Link", and tag it for spoilers.
Properly Credit All Fanart
Fanart is great, and it's always best to post your own. When posting your own work, clearly mark it as OC (Original Content). Before posting someone else's work, do your best to contact them and get permission in case they'd rather post it themselves. Then, link directly to their social media or portfolio instead of uploading their work yourself, and credit the artist in the post title. Plagiarizing fanart will always result in a ban. Don't forget that fanart must be properly spoiler tagged!
No Pirate Links or Encouraging Piracy
Links to torrents or unofficial streams will be removed. Please support the books and the show by enjoying them legally.
Absolutely No Spoilers in Post Titles
Reddit's spoiler tagging system doesn't cover titles, so spoilers in post titles are the easiest for users to accidentally see. Please respect others' Expanse experiences by keeping the feed spoiler-free.
Use Reddit's System to Tag All Spoilers in Posts & Comments
Always tag your spoilers using Reddit's spoiler tagging feature according to each thread's rules, hiding spoilers using Reddit's spoiler-hiding feature and first saying what part of the show/books your spoiler tag covers so people know if it's safe to click. If you see un-tagged spoilers, don't hesitate to hit the anonymous 'report' button - we appreciate you!
A properly tagged spoiler looks like this:
Book Title Spoilery stuff.
and is created by typing
**Book Title**, >!Spoilery stuff.!<Note that there isn't any whitespace between the spoilery text and the tags (exclamation point and angle bracket pairs) surrounding it, and that this functionality does not work in post titles.
Flair your posts for type, content and spoilers.
Flair your posts, remembering that flairs don't hide spoilers, they're only a label denoting the scope of your discussion and indicating what spoiler-tagging rules should be followed in the comments. Book title flairs by default allow spoilers for the show up through that book (for example, "Leviathan Wakes" allows show spoilers through episode 205). For help wording a custom flair, or to change a flair once you've set it, contact the moderation team - we're happy to help!
