You can reactivate your account at any time by attempting to log in again. When you do, you'll be emailed a link to reactivate your account.

Drawing / Images

Sometimes you need more than words to express your opinion. Need a diagram? Graph? Now you can draw your posts! Or you can use an image to express your post.

Tips for making the best posts

  • Take as long as you need to make your post; there's no need to rush.
  • You can change the colour, size, position and alignment of the text. Use all the features available to make your post look as good as possible.
  • If you're using an image, find a nice big image that's high quality - it will make your post look nicer than a small image that's been stretched.
  • Pick an image that's relevant to your post. The best kinds are a simple photo of what your post is taking about.
  • You don't need to be the best artist in the world to get your post on the home page, if the content is good and the drawing is clear it will stand a very good chance of being homepaged. An original post that's not the best drawing is better than an amazing drawing that's a repeat.

Rules for drawings or images

  • The site is about opinions and questions; you can't just draw a random picture. You should draw something that happens in your mind, something you do, something that annoys you etc. or something you just want to ask. Your picture should be something people can answer or agree with.
  • Don't draw just for the sake of drawing. If your drawing is solely text it will be removed - that's what text posts are for.
  • Your drawing or image should be relevant to your post. If you use a random image on your post, your post will be removed.
  • No offensive drawings. That means no sex, no gore, no racism (the normal post rules still apply).
  • You must provide a text version of your post as well as the drawing. This should be the text equivalent of your drawing - that means somebody should be able to understand the whole post from the text alone without seeing the drawing. This makes it so people can search for your post, and people who don't want to see the drawing can still enjoy it.
  • Don't repeat other posts. Repeats will be removed.
  • You can use material from other sites or books and can optionally cite them.
  • The rules are here to Amirite clean and exciting. Please respect them and keep Amirite an interesting place for everybody to visit.
  • Feel free to share your image posts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and wherever you want!

■ Catchy Content - Write concise, catchy opinions / questions. Feel free to add as much personality to your post as you want, but don't let too many words detract from your message. Extremely long posts are difficult to digest, and will most likely not get featured.

■ Keep Things Respectful - We know you're an opinionated lot, and we always expect you to share your views freely. However, if your post is designed to provoke a flame war or bash a particular group, it will probably not get featured. The more journalistic and professional your post, the more likely it is to get featured.

■ Add an Image - Add an image to your post. Content with images is more likely to get featured.

■ Get the Discussion Started - After posting, share your post with as many people as possible. If our editors see lots of people discussing your content, they will more likely feature it.

Who Are The Moderators And How Do I Become A Moderator?

Please see the moderators page.

 

How Do I Delete My Post?

If you made a mistake in your post, you have the ability to edit it or delete it for five minutes after you make it. Why the limit you may ask? We trialled a system where people could delete their posts at any time, but people didn't like it. Some people's favourite posts got deleted just because they were negative. We do this to prevent the bad sports out there trying to boost their stats by deleting any post that people don't agree with. That's not what Amirite is about - it's for fun, not a competition.

 

How Many Home Page Votes Does A Post Need to Get On The Home Page?

It's a secret. If we told you that it would be easy for people to cheat.

 

What Is A Warning?

A warning is a message which you may receive from a moderator for breaking a rule on Amirite. We use warnings for more serious things and for instances where it is clear that the intention was to break the rules and/or cause trouble. We also give warnings to members who have repeatedly broken the same rule and ignored previous alerts/warnings.

A warning is not a punishment, but it is meant to act as a deterrent. Warnings remain on your permanent record. A warning will remain visible on your page until you click the link to acknowledge that you have read it. You must take action to remedy the situation and cease and behaviour that the warning refers to.

Failure to heed any warnings will result in your account being permanently suspended. Receiving multiple warnings will lead to suspension, even if they are not regarding the same issue Remember to abide by the Amirite rules.

 

I have some feedback how do I sent it to you?

We would be delighted to hear it, please send it to support@amirite.com

 

Posts / Voting

What do I do?

Each post will be a statement or opinion and have some buttons for you to vote on it. Some will have Agree/Disagree buttons,, and some will have options chosen by the person who made the post.

The score shown next to each post is the number of 'Agree's minus the number of 'Disagree's.

How to post?

To make a post just click Post Your Opinion or Post a Question in the menu and write what you want. You don't even need to your name if you want to remain anonymous. Just post something original.

What can I post?

Every post should be an opinion or statement that people can answer or a question.

If you're making a post that has Agree/Disagree buttons then your post should be an opinion; you're asking the reader if they agree with you.

For the most part, you are free to post whatever you want. But we do have a few rules:

  • You can use material from other sites or books and can optionally cite them.
  • Don't post something that's been posted before. Please use the search if you're not sure.
  • Your post should be answerable by anybody that reads it. That means, don't post about your friend Jim who the reader won't know. If your friend Jim happens to be Jim Carrey however, that is okay because most people know of him.
  • Nothing offensive. No swearing.
  • Be creative! When you make your post, think to yourself, "If I didn't write this, would I want to read it?" The goal here is to have fun, so give the people what they want!
  • Remember to follow the site rules.

If you don't follow these rules your post may be removed by a moderator. If you see a post that doesn't follow these rules, you can report it to a moderator by clicking the flag icon.

Any posts can be removed at any notice. It is at the moderator's discretion. 

The Home Page / Featured Page

The home page showcases the best posts on the site. A new post appears on the home page every few minutes.

It's not a simple case of picking posts with the highest score to be on the home page; a post can be something that people disagree with while still being interesting. That's why we invented the 'home page button': . When you're logged in, you'll see this icon on posts that are not already on the home page. With this you can vote for a post to be on the home page. But choose wisely because you only get 50 home page votes per day. When a post reaches a certain number of home page votes, it will appear on the home page.

Moderators are also always on the look out for posts to be on the home page that are thought-provoking, interesting, or just plain funny. The more home page votes a post have, the quicker a moderator will see it!

Post Of The Day

The Post of the Day is the very first post you see when you come to Amirite, so we try to make it something that really shows what Amirite is all about. The post of the day is picked by the content editors of the site from months to a few days in advance. If you see a post that you think would make an excellent post of the day, please do contact us with your suggestion.

When Does The Post Of The Day Change?

Amirite works on UK time, so the post of the day changes at these times:

  • Beijing 07:00 / 7am
  • Europe 01:00 / 1am
  • London 00:00 / Midnight
  • New York 19:00 / 7pm

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Amirite. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority.

The fact that we link to a website, content or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement is not an endorsement, authorization or representation that we are affiliated with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices. We do not exercise control over third party websites or services. These other websites and services may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you.
