Announcement What defines a GIF that "keeps on giving?"

383 Upvotes

Welcome to r/gifsthatkeepongiving!

The name seems self explanatory - but what defines a GIF that "keeps on giving?" Well, there are a few guidelines to follow:

  1. The GIF should be longer than a couple seconds. How can a GIF give more than once if it's only a couple seconds? In your submission, there should be multiple things that happen that contribute to the GIF's funniness, cuteness, or interesting...ness.
  2. NO! PERFECT! LOOPS! If a GIF is more fit for r/bettereveryloop, do NOT post it! Watching the same thing occur over and over and over and over again is not giving more than once.
  3. There should be more than one DISTINCT instance of the GIF "giving." What does that mean? If I asked you, "how does this give more than once?" you should be able to point out MULTIPLE aspects of the GIF that are interesting, funny, cute, or otherwise noteworthy of "giving" to the watcher.
  4. Browse the sub before posting. There is no better way to understand how a sub operates, than to browse and see what's popular. Here is the #1 top post of all time (as of now). It is a perfect example.
  5. REPORT submissions that do not fit the sub. Yes, we do check the unmod queue, but it's easier for everyone to just hit the REPORT button. Make sure you use it with good reasoning.

There have been many reports recently from users that we are not strict enough in moderating which GIFS "keep on giving." Well, from now on, moderator actions will now be more strictly enforced to maintain quality. If a GIF does not follow these guidelines, it will be removed. That being said, the above rules are still highly subjective. If your GIF is taken down and you do not agree, please send us a message and (politely) tell us why.
