There is no such thing as a Stupid Question!

Don’t be embarrassed of your curiosity; everyone has questions that they may feel uncomfortable asking certain people, so this place gives you a nice area not to be judged about asking it. Everyone here is willing to help. All questions are welcome such as to how to change oil, to how to tie shoes. All questions are welcome – except clear trolls, please don’t be that guy. Thanks for reading all of this, even if you didn’t read all of this, and your eye started somewhere else have a cookie.

This subreddit was inspired by this thread and more specifically, this comment.

All direct answers to a post must make a genuine attempt to answer the question. Joke responses at the parent-level will be removed. Accounts using AI to generate answers will be banned. Follow-up questions at the top level are allowed.

Please do not answer by only dropping a link and do not tell users they should “google it.” Include a summary of the link or answer the question yourself. Users are coming to NSQ for straightforward, simple answers or because of the nuance that engaging in conversation supplies. LMGTFY links will be removed.

No responses being rude to the questioner for not knowing the answer.


  • On-topic follow up questions are allowed.

  • Link only answers permitted if the question happens to be “What is a good subreddit for…?”

Try to keep repeat posts to a minimum. As much as we love answering questions here, it doesn’t help when we see repeat questions on the front page every day. You can find the questions that have come up here again and again in our wiki.

Be polite and respectful in your exchanges. NSQ is supposed to be a helpful resource for confused redditors. Civil disagreements can happen, but insults should not. Personal attacks, slurs, bigotry, etc. are not permitted at any time.

Check out the reddiquette page for more info – violations of any of those of clauses may result in a ban without warning.

No medical advice questions

Disallowed: questions that are joke or trolling questions, memes, just song lyrics as title, etc.

Suicide related questions are best handled by the resources they have at r/SuicideWatch.

Questions along the lines of “was I raped?” or “was I sexually assaulted?” are best addressed by the trained, professional support resources you can find here or here.

No trying to draw traffic to product/video/podcast/website by phrasing it in the form of a question.

Asking for upvotes, birthday wishes, handouts, or fundraising support fall under this as well. Please see more appropriate subreddits for that.

Nothing like “Where can I find a copy of (movie/show/music) for free online?” There are other places for asking that, this is not one of them.

Tasteless or disturbing questions regarding loli, pedophilia, murder, violence or other sketchy or disgusting subject matter are not welcome here. You are welcome to ask good faith questions about such topics but be aware such threads may be locked or removed if necessary to preserve the integrity of the subreddit.

Questions not asked in good faith – such as a rant or hate towards any group in the form of a question, as well as leading questions, or those asked merely to promote an agenda will be removed.

We are a small, volunteer mod team and there is a limit to our ability to respond to brigading and trolling from Reddit at large. We reserve the right to make judgement calls on when a particular thread becomes disruptive to the sub, and we are unable to maintain a civil space for the discussion.
