Now This and Seeker changed it's thumbnails to incorporate the trans flag, I've seen other channels doing it too. Is there like a trans thing going on?

Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/nowthismedia

Referring to this, what is meant by electronically stealing signs? I know nothing about baseball, how big of a deal is this?

I see all over the news that CUHK is being invaded by the police. I cant find anywhere the reason as to why though? There have been rumors saying that they are after the HK internet, I'm not sure if i really buy that. Is there any more concrete source or statement from the police or anything saying as to why they are invading? Just curious.

I keep seeing memes about how youtubers are required to swear a certain amount yet not go overboard to make any money (as seen here) and I'm wondering why.

Seems like a major leadership change, some people are claiming there is some kind of biased coup to install specific people or demote specific person/persons?

Can someone explain what is happened for someone completely out of the loop?

Rules

1. Post title must be a current, unbiased, and coherent question

  • The title is the most important aspect to creating a post. If it's hard for other users to understand what you are asking then it will be hard to get an answer.
    • Current - The topic of the post you are creating must be a trending event that has happened recently.
    • Unbiased - Don't put your own twist on it to make it come off negative or positive. Try to be as neutral as possible.
    • Coherent - Write a complete question that is clear about what you are trying to ask. Don't simply put one word and a question mark.
    • Format - Include the format listed here

2. Post must include context and resources in the body of the text

  • Context is key when trying to find a proper answer. The more we know about what you are asking, the better we can answer with more information.
    • Context - Add some words to your post so there is more to work with than a title. Words such as; what you saw, where you saw it, how often you saw it.
    • Resources - You obviously saw it somewhere; link to the thing that made you ask. Or include a screenshot.

3. No ad nauseum, recently reposted, or retired questions

  • Often times what you are asking has already been answered. Be sure to search the subreddit, Google, and KnowYourMeme before creating a new post.
    • Ad nauseum - The topic in question has been discussed extensively, and that those involved in the discussion have grown tired of it.
    • Recently reposted - A topic is popular and is posted multiple times within a short period of time.
    • Retired - The 'Big List of Retired Questions' is a wiki page created by the mods that lists overly asked questions that have been thoroughly answered. Duplicates of retired questions may be removed.

4. Top-level comments must be a genuine, unbiased, and coherent answer

  • People are here to find answers for their questions. If top-level comments are riddled with memes or non-answers then no one wins.
    • Genuine - Attempt to answer with words; don't pop in to tell users to search or drop a link without explanation.
    • Unbiased - Answer without putting your own twist of bias towards the answer. However, after you leave an unbiased response, you can add your own opinion as long as it's clearly marked, starting with "Biased:".
    • Coherent - Write in complete sentences that are clear about what you are trying to say.

5. Be nice, follow etiquette

  • This subreddit is supposed to be a helpful place for confused redditors.
    • Be nice - Be polite in your exchanges, vote based on whether a comment contributes to the discussion and not on whether you agree with the opinion, etc.
    • Follow etiquette - When in doubt, refer to reddiquette.
