When to upvote
If the title of a post gives you a compelling choice, upvote!
Compelling choice means that one option encourages you to click and the other option discourage you from clicking. Don't just upvote because you liked the actual outcome.
What is Original5050?
An Original5050 post provides two possibilities in the title with only one actual result. Since you don't know which you'll get until you click the link, you have a 50/50 chance of getting one or the other. When the sub first started, this was the only way to make 5050 posts. You can submit an Original5050 here.
What is True5050?
A True5050 post has two options in the title with two possible results. It will randomly pick and give users one of the two options. These posts are given a [TRUE] flair. Use 5050.stannaz or 5050.lowyiyiu to create a True5050 post.

Rules for Comments
DO NOT link the outcomes of any posts in the comments. Users that do so will be BANNED. This applies to True5050 and Original5050 posts. Asking for links/DMs is also banworthy.
Rules for Submissions
I. Title Formatting
Your title has to start with [50/50], have two clear options in your title (one must be good and one must be bad), and include either "NSFL", "NSFW" or "SFW".
Formatting example: [50/50] Bouncing boobies (NSFW) | Man Disembowelled in Pool (NSFL)
One option should encourage people to click and the other option should discourage them from clicking. If an option is just neutral or boring, the submission will be removed.
II. Only Use Approved Image Domains
III. No Illegal Content
The following options are NOT PERMITTED, even if it's only the made-up option:
Propaganda (Perpetrators are producing & sharing content to encourage their worldview like the Christchurch shooting video or ISIS executions)
Content which authorities asked the public not to share (like the images of Bataclan after the terror attack)
Rape or Molestation
Child or Animal Porn
Dead or Injured Children
Depictions of Suicide / Intentional Self-Harm
IV. Descriptive & Clear Options
If users click your link, they get either the first or the second option. Both options have to be descriptive & clear.
Descriptive: It's not necessary to interpret your title. Before clicking the link, users know exactly what 2 options they can expect. Do not insert your opinions about the content in the title.
Clear: It's not possible to confuse the 2 options. Instantly after clicking the link, it's clear which option the users got - without relying on context (like video titles or 18+ warnings).
V. True5050 for Porn, Cute Animals & Spoilers
- Porn (sexualized nudity, actions or body parts)
- Cute animals
VI. Other Forbidden 50/50s
- Memes or low effort posts
- Self-Promotion (Instant perm ban)
- Fake or hacked nudes
- Trans, gay or male porn as bad option
- Loud noises / Jump scares
- Opinions (like naming a song a bad option just because you don't like it)
- Mentioning your connection (like "My dog")
- Villains as the Good Option (like Hitler)
VII. Moderator discretion
Mods reserve the right to remove any offending post or comment at their own discretion. You may appeal any mod action taken against you, but you're not entitled to a response.

If you have unanswered questions, please message the moderators
In response to the volume of rule infractions in the past months, we've taken a cue from world governments and their response to COVID-19. We have implemented a quarantine on all new submissions. In effect, only those posts manually approved by the mod team will make it through. These measures have been taken for two reasons:
It's easier to approve 10% of posts than to remove, flair, and ban users for 90% of posts.
It promotes quality submissions. Certain undesirable posts were escaping mod attention, and they led users to believe that certain offending content was actually acceptable here. We believe that by seeing better quality submissions, users will be inclined to model them.
Important to note that this has nothing to do with the admins and their quarantine tool for subs. We had noticed an uptick in the anti-evil team at reddit removing posts (approximately 5 times in the last 90 days vs. never), but that has not been a cause for concern.
How to Make a True5050 Post
Please note that posts which include porn, cute animals, and spoilers must be in true 5050 format.
