We're interested in your feedback about the subreddit's rules or anything else. Please fully read this before commenting, we'll try to keep it concise.
Note that this is a repost, as the previous thread didn't get much attention which kinda defeats the point (link). We'll take all feedback into consideration, no matter which thread you use.
We went over our rules and slightly reworded/simplified some of them. The idea is to make them clearer, and easier to understand, and have the important information in the sidebar. This also makes them more consistent with the way we moderate, and should serve as a point of reference to the rest of this thread.
These three rules are often misunderstood, so we tried to clarify them a bit.
Rule 2 (not allowing tech support): separating subreddits is the best way to allow users to choose what they want to see, as filters are either lacking or not available depending on the platform/app you're using. Most rule-breaking threads belong in r/AndroidQuestions or r/PickAnAndroidForMe, and we remove those while redirecting users to the appropriate subreddit. Some users don't like the separation as it means their tech-support questions get less attention, which we try to address as much as possible via the weekly threads and our sidebar. We don't think the alternative would be acceptable to most r/Android subscribers -- allowing all posts means users can no longer subscribe to the content they're interested in.
Content which benefits the community (news, rumors, and discussions) is valued over content which benefits only the individual (technical questions, help buying/selling, rants, self-promotion, etc.).
