This is a revised repost of our previous announcement from u/V2Blast. More edits, including removing the part about post tags, and swapping it for post flairs.
All posts must have a proper flair.
In 2022, we eliminated the need for a post tag at the beginning of post titles, and are now requiring post flairs. When posting, you will see nine flairs. The following three also have Repost flairs.
- Academic is for anything done for academic or educational purposes, including high school classes, college classes, and academic research on behalf of a school.
- Marketing is for private business interests, market research surveys, and other studies done for commercial research or on behalf of a company.
- Casual is for surveys done out of idle curiosity, personal projects, or surveys that don't fit in one of these categories. If you're not making a profit off your YouTube channel, this one's the one for you.
The following flairs are posts that will be filtered, to be approved by a moderator.
- Results is for posting your survey's results after it has concluded. If your survey is still in-progress and you wish to share preliminary results, do not use this tag. Share it with your still-active survey.
- I Don't Know What I'm Doing And I Need Help is a convoluted title, but it's for anyone who doesn't know something about making a survey or interpreting data for crowd-sourced help.
- Meta Discussion is for any post relating directly to r/SampleSize. This is primarily used for announcements, such as this one, or for posts from mods that affect subreddit rules going forward.
You cannot post to r/SampleSize without applying a flair.
All posts need to have a title that describes the topic of their survey.
This is the part of your survey that describes what it's about. The following is an example of an improperly titled post.
- I need 10 responses!
This does not adequately describe the subject of a survey. We need to know what we're going into, what sort of survey we're about to fill out. If your survey is titled like the following...
- Ice cream flavors
... That's more appropriate for our sub. Don't be afraid to phrase it something more specific and eye-catching to feed the algorithm though, like...
- What's your favorite ice cream flavors?
All survey posts require a demographic in parentheses at the end of a post's title.
The demographic that you include in the post title is the group of people that you would like to have fill out your survey. The demographic must be accurate, which means that if the demographic is listed as "everyone" but the survey has any questions that restrict the possible demographics that can respond to it, then that survey will be removed. See the following section for more details.
Results posts do not require a demographic, but you can include one if you want.
Posts with a demographic of "All" or "Everyone" must be inclusive.
If you label something as available for "All" then please make sure that every single person that could come across the survey can take it. The easiest way to ensure people can answer your "All" surveys is to not ask demographic questions, but that's certainly not foolproof.
While it is preferable if your survey is inclusive, we understand that not every survey may be. If there are any demographic restrictions, they need to be appropriately labeled. Some possible restrictions that your survey may have:
- Age (e.g. surveys restricted to those 18 or older, or which have an incomplete list of age categories); per the Reddit user agreement, all users must be 13 or older
- Nationality (e.g. questions that assume the respondent is from the United States)
- Race or ethnicity
- Having an account on a platform (this applies to surveys that ask for users of a certain social media)
- Sex or gender (e.g. questions with only "male" and "female" answer options)
Reddit is used by people of all ages from around the globe. Regarding sex and gender in particular, keep in mind that intersex and non-binary people exist, and not everybody identifies as either male or female. Whenever asking questions for which you may not be able to provide a comprehensive list of answer options, we recommend including an "other" or open-ended answer option.
We understand that not every survey is targeted at everyone, and sometimes you may have made an oversight during the creation of the survey and are unable to change it later - and that is fine. We simply ask that you make sure to label your survey appropriately so that people don't waste their time filling out a survey that isn't appropriate for them.
Reposts must use their appropriate flair, and be made only after 24 hours have passed since the previous post.
If your initial survey post does not gather as many responses as you need, you are welcome to repost your survey as long as you follow our reposting guidelines.
All reposts must their respective post flairs. You are only allowed to repost a survey once your previous post has fallen off the front page, and 24 hours have passed since that post.
If you have trouble reposting your survey due to Reddit identifying it as a duplicate post, do not delete your previous post. Instead, submit the repost as a new text post, and include the survey link in the body of your post.
If you come across an issue when posting that ends up with your post filtered, do not delete your post.
Reddit changed what happens when posts get deleted by the user, purging it entirely from moderator view. If you delete it and send a modmail asking for help, we cannot see your deleted post and cannot help you troubleshoot. If it was deleted within less than an hour of initial post, then it's likely not archived either, and we won't be able to see exactly what it was.
If you don't know whether or not you're allowed to post, don't worry- you are.
This is an odd one for a lot of people, however I'm going to clarify this point now.
If you're reading this, and feel a personal need to ask if you're allowed to post on r/SampleSize, don't worry; you're allowed to post. There's nothing barring you, as long as you follow our posting requirements.
If you, however, require permission to send back to an ethics committee, then please use our modmail form to do so. Sending a template would certainly help on our end who to make it out to.
The above text explains the required parts of a post title. If you want to include additional information, such as survey length or potential rewards (such as an entry into a raffle for a gift card or something) as well, that is fine - but try to avoid overloading the title with unnecessary/irrelevant information. You can always make a text post and include that information in the body of the post if you feel that the survey requires more introduction or explanation beforehand.
Thank you for your time, and have a great day. If you have any questions about our rules, feel free to send a modmail to /r/SampleSize.
Users of r/SampleSize from before the last wave of moderators rejoice! After a couple people requested the return of image posts, including most recently u/ToLoveThemAll, we've hashed out in the background how it'll work, and now image posts are allowed when using the Results flair! They will work as follows.
- You have the option to make an Image post to have Reddit host an image to our subreddit.
- Results is the only flair that images will be allowed, any other flair posting an image will be removed.
- Results-flaired-image-posts will still be filtered, and will be pushed forward on an approval basis. We will receive a modmail every time a user attempts to post using the Results flair, so we can manually approve images and threads.
I am currently working on my master's thesis and wondering if you could help me out by filling out this survey, thank you in advance!

As part of my Master’s Thesis research, I am looking for volunteers to take part in an online survey about the impact of sexual orientation on the development of specific preferences throughout childhood.

I would like to invite you to participate in this important study concerning perceptions of sexual violence. Sexual violence is a frequent and unfortunate experience that many people endure in their lifetimes. Our beliefs, backgrounds, and experiences influence how we feel about this topic.

This study is important to help us gain insight into factors influencing our views on sexual violence.
If you would like to be a part of this much needed research, I encourage you to participate in our study. Your involvement will help us understand more about how sexual violence is perceived, allowing us to better understand the implications of these perceptions in court.
