So, with the new sticky feature implimented we thought it would be a good time to have a FAQ’s and Ask the Mods thread. This will be especially helpful for new subscribers and lurkers.
How can I submit a comic?
Check this helpful information out. It has to follow the official tutorial, you then upload the comic to www.imgur.com and send us a link in modmail. Once you are approved you can post whenever you like, as long as it follows the rules.
Why do comics have to be more than one panel for approval?
So we can see what you are actually able to do, after you’ve been approved feel free to post single panels but we won’t approve you just on that.

Why can’t I post reaction gifs as comments?
Frankly they are the lowest common denominator for comments. We also don’t allow pun threads and meme’s/image macros either. See the list here and if you notice a rule break in /r/polandball please report it.
Why do some users have wings beside their names?
This is because they have won either a monthly contest, or one of their comics made it to the top of all time. For a full list of the Honourary Hussar Wings Winners click here
What’s this contest you are talking about?
We have our monthly contests, every user is able to submit a comic to the mods, then our mod account posts it anonymously and people can vote on the comics. The winner gets hussar wings. For a list of the contests go to the bottom of this page
