Change in rules regarding videos

Hey everyone! After various complaints from our community and an influx of rule breaking posts we as a mod team have decided to disallow video posts once again. You should no longer be able to post videos following this change. All videos posted before this change will still be up.

We hope that this decision will help keep posts more in theme with the subreddit. Thank you to everyone in the community who gave their opinions on this matter and brought it to our attention.

Regarding events at the U.S. Capitol.

I'll do my best to keep my announcement about this short. This is not a political sub, and this isn't a sub that likes to make light of controversy. Please refrain from posting anything about or referencing the events at the U.S. capitol today, and please report any posts you see (Rule 1 or Rule 4 work).

We intend for this sub to be a place where one can relax and enjoy images that (hopefully) bring the best of both cursed and blessed. Politics and similar things don't belong here.

Moderator Applications

Moderator applications are now closed. We will be reaching out to approved applicants and be introducing our new mods soon.

announcement A reminder that sign posts fall under Rule 3

136 Upvotes

Hi everyone!

Lately we've noticed an influx of people posting images of signs that usually just say wacky things. We had this problem a few months prior, so I'm just here to remind everyone that sign posts (obviously) rely on text, which breaks Rule 3. They're also just low-effort in general.

Otherwise, keep on keepin' on! We hope you're all staying safe out there!

announcement Blursed images now have a blessed side too! Go Join r/blessedpics

183 Upvotes

Hey Everyone!

I am pleased to announce the newest addition to the r/blursedimages family, r/BlessedPics

As some of you know, r/blessedimages has gone private and will remain so for the foreseeable future. This has essentially closed the sub. r/blessedimages was a popular subreddit, and after its closure, there was a void in the community. Then….a light emerged, and as the angels sang, r/BlessedPics was born.

So head on over and give it some love!

(Note from Will if blessed images does return, this subreddit will be stepped down)

announcement New blursed CSS!!!

94 Upvotes

After over a year and a million subscribers, we figured it was time for a CSS overhaul.

I want to say huge thanks to our lovely mod u/nickofolas for working on this cool amazing CSS (my favourite part is the 3D submit button)

Please switch to old reddit in order to see our new CSS, trust me - it looks much better than reddit redesign

(sorry mobile users)

Also please keep in mind our new CSS is under development, the search styling isn't ready yet.

And finally, if you have any feedback or suggestion, please let us know! we will happily do our best to help.

Alright, another look into a rule change and whatnot.

But before I start, this rule change is brought to you by our sponsor..

Raid Shadow shave club wallets VPN. (Not really)

Okay... So lately we've have been noticing an UNGODLY amount of reposts getting shot here left-and-right. Some quality stuff that got missed in the past, and others some kid trying to repost a 'Post of Quality' or TOP OF ALL TIME. With the previous rule, even if it was a small repost from months ago, we would destroy it without question, and give ourselves a pat on the back. Regardless if in some miracle that post made its way to over 10,000 upvotes! It pissed a lot of people off..

But yeah... Repost is still a big nono, but we would like to bring up a more flexible alternative to make things a little easier for yourself, and us.

Repost patch notes v1.68

  • Reposting a Post of Quality, a sin. die instantly, Post of quality - An example of a blursed Post, and Announcment is not okay! They already had their time to shine, and made it to the hall of fame! (This will also result in a 24 hr ban.)
  • Reposts must be 1 month old, of a post with less than 5k Upvotes (We don't want people reposting some top tier content for easy $$$)
  • Reposts must have less than 5 reposts throughout the subreddits history. After the 5th post, the image will be forever lost, never to be posted again...

FAQ

Q: How can I tell if this is a repost?

A: Firstly, look at your image. Is it This? If so, look up any title that would fit the image in the search bar if this subbreddit and see if any links pop up! (Doge, blushing, cute, etc) It's that simple!

So, hopefully this will help bring less chaos, and more quality stuff that never got its time to shine! If you have any further questions you can go ahead and knock us up in the "Mod Mail"

Thanks for your time, and be sure to like, comment, subscribe, and eat fish sticks for a chance to enter this non-existent gift card giveaway!

Hello hello everyone, firstly I want to say welcome to everyone coming from PewDiePie latest video!

I'd like to thank PewDiePie for reviewing our subreddit, it means a lot.

and because of that, we are expecting a lot of traffic (tons of new posts and comments). So that's why I encourage everyone to read the rules to avoid getting banned.

The rules are already found in the sidebar but I'll put them here anyway:

Rule 1: Images must be both blessed and cursed

Bread skate is a perfect example, because it's confusing and concerning but is also in broad daylight and makes you feel unadulterated joy. Memes are not blursed images.

2. No x-posts from r/cursedimages or r/blessedimages

if images have already been posted on these subreddits, their fate has been decided. they are already blessed or cursed, keep 📷r/blursedimages blursed.

3. All posts must start with "blursed_" or "blursed"

4. No screenshots with text or text heavy posts

images should be naturally blursed, adding text to artificially blurse an image doesn't count. If your post relies on text to make it blursed then you get a ban varying from 5-69 days, depending on the state of u/Chicken-of-Wisdom's sex life.

5. No reposts.

Reposting is not allowed.

6. No Memes or Twitter Posts

There are other places for memes and twitter posts like 📷r/blursed_memes. Just don't post a meme. You will get banned if you post a meme or twitter post.

7. No Videos

This is blursed images not 📷r/blursed_videos this includes gifs.

And most importantly, Have fun! (while following the rules of course)

announcement The current state of the subreddit, the outlawing of memes and the new subreddit for blursed memes...

87 Upvotes

(if you just want to know the name of the new subreddit: r/blursed_memes)

I'd like to start off by thanking the people who message us in modmail with posts that are memes and need to be removed, we appreciate it.

As some of you have mentioned to us the subreddit is "full of memes and shit".

On behalf of the mod team, I would like to formally apologize about the drop in quality content on this subreddit, we are not r/memes we are r/blursedimages. With this drop in content quality, there will be some changes coming to blursed images. The first of these being the outlawing of all memes, memes have seemingly become a bigger problem over the past few weeks and its time to take action! We are cracking down, all posts that are memes will be removed no matter how many upvotes it has. The second thing we will be changing is text within the blursed images, we are going to start being less lenient on what photos break the no text rule.

We realise that there needs to be a place for those blursed memes so we are happy to announce the opening of our new subreddit r/blursed_memes, a place for all memes that are blessed and cursed. We hope the community can come on board and enjoy this new subreddit purely for blursed memes.

Note - We will not be taking any mod applications

On behalf of the mod team, we would like to thank you for all being awesome blursed users!
