Remember the human, on the other side of the conversation. In this local subreddit, there is no tolerance for insulting other people. Stick to discussing the topic, and not the redditor who disagrees with you about it.
We strive to be a helpful community of redditors. Tell the mods about comments that aren't helpful.
Check out the front page before you post! If there's already a thread about a topic on the front page, don't start another thread about that topic! We want visitors to the subreddit to see a bunch of topics on the front page, not a bunch of threads about the same thing.
Posts in /r/sanantonio should have a local angle. Popular topics include: things you're looking for; activities you want to do; advice about places to go; or advice about moving to SA. If you're looking for a local solution to a problem that isn't local, say that when you start your thread
What is local? If you can drive from San Antonio to another place within an hour, you can post here about that place, too. But consider that another subreddit may give you better answers about that place.
We allow one self-promotional post on this subreddit for every 9 posts you make anywhere on reddit about other things. Any future self-promotional threads after the first one will be removed as spam, unless you demonstrate by posting frequently about other things that you are an active redditor. If that's not enough, please visit https://reddit.com/advertising for the alternative.
Any attempts to circumvent this limit will have serious consequences, using the many tools that the moderation team has at its disposal to keep the subreddit informative, friendly, helpful and uncluttered.
Report spam, but look at the history and the karma before you report. Please don't report occasional self-promotion by active redditors whose submissions are on topic for this subreddit and fall within the 10-percent rule described above. The fact that you are not interested in their occasional self-promotion does not make it spam.
Please do report actual spam posted by accounts (or users with multiple fake accounts) that appear to only or mostly be here to make multiple posts promoting a business, service or cause. These will be removed as spam, even if the post is on topic for this subreddit. Reddit sells ads that help pay for the site to exist and we encourage those fakers to purchase them.
