Rules and Guidelines

Please read this sticky before posting. It contains some basic guidelines for posting in this subreddit, as well as the rules that are mentioned in the sidebar for mobile users.

Basic guidelines

We require:

  • screenshot of brand new sentence, with some context

  • verifying that the sentence is new and not a repost

  • linking the source in the comments (if possible)

We encourage:

  • using the sentence as the title of the post

  • posting sentences that are funny, confusing or weird, but in humorous ways

We allow:

  • using a creative and interesting title instead of the brand new sentence

  • not linking the source if it is not possible or if enough context has been given

We forbid:

  • reposts, duplicates, old sentences

  • meme sentences ("nobody has ever said that" because it is ridiculous and/or not true, meant as satire)

  • headlines of satire websites that are obviously fake

The above guidelines are a TL;DR of the rules. Please read below for full detail on what makes a good post and what we require of you to participate in this community.


Rules:

1. Post screenshots of discovered brand new sentences

Post must be a screenshot of the sentence, as well as some additional context.

Sentences that qualify as "brand new", in the terms accepted by this subreddit, have the following atributes:

  • never been said before, or said few enough times to qualify as "almost new"

  • not an idiom (or a translated idiom)

  • humorous or confusingly worded

2. Check if the sentence has been said before before posting

It is encouraged to perform a Google search of the sentence before posting it. Use the " character (double quotation marks) to search for the exact string of words in order to produce the best results.

If the results produced are many and have various apparition dates, it is most likely that the sentence is not brand new.

If there are many results, but all on the same day, the sentence is likely new (and therefore qualifies for this sub) but has become popular (which is OK).

3. Reposts are not allowed

Search for the sentence on this sub, in order to avoid your post being taken down due to a repost.

4. Avoid satire and shitposting

Here is an example of a sentence that is meant as a joke, in a satirical way. Due to highly popular demand, this kind of posts are no longer accepted on this sub.

This is not a meme sub.

5. Do not post sentences created by bots

6. The brand new sentence should be in the title

It is encouraged to use the new sentence as the title. If you don't want to do this, use a creative title.

Titles that are considered boring and will be removed:

  • I think this belongs here

  • One of my friends said this

  • Found on...

  • On a topic about...

  • What / Lol / I don't even know where to begin

  • This whole thread / Two in one

7. Link the source in the comments

This rule applies to sentences found on the Internet.

Exceptions to this rule are:

  • text messages (sms, WhatsApp, Discord)

  • Facebook posts on private groups

8. Be civil

9. Do not incite to political or ideological debates

You must not, under any circumstances, comment on a post in order to incite debate. This is usually the case with sentences that mildly refer to controversial topics such as politics, LGBT+, vaccinations etc.

Please keep this sub relevant to its purpose and do not flood the comments section with off topic debates. Any debate is off topic as long as it is beside the point of the subreddit: enjoying the novelty of a sentence


Verifying new sentences

The best way to check if a sentence is new is by performing a Google search.

If the sentence is

A loose cannon eventually points your way (check it out)

then, in order to check for its novelty, you should Google "a loose cannon eventually points your way" (note the double quotation marks ", used to tell Google to search for the exact string of characters).

How many results did you get? If it's only one, and it is the original source, congratulations, you've found a new one! If it's more, but all are posted on the same day, it is likely that it's a popular sentence, but could be new. In this case, search r/BrandNewSentence for reposts before posting it. If there are many results, scattered all over the Internet and even on multiple places on reddit, it is highly likely that it is not a new sentence and should not be posted here.

Overheard new sentences thread + discord

Post here all the weird stuff your friends or your cousins say. Don't forget to give us a little bit of context as to how that sentence was born.

This thread is dedicated for sentences that were not found on the internet and were instead created in face to face or phone conversations, video chats, game voice chats and so on. Please only comment your own personal ideas and/or additions in response to other comments, and keep the top parent comments just the sentences.

Also, you can join our discord server by using this invite: https://discord.gg/GfxVA6q
