- Only Sysops and Editors can set POTNs. Suggestions go on the Talk Page.
- Find a relevant (recent events) picture that doesn't suck. No porn or gore as POTN, and preferably no tl;dr screen caps of all text posts like Tweets etc; those can be QOTN.
- No Animated GIFs; the stress of showing a GIF on the main page basically makes the site DDoS itself.
- Captions are optional. If you can, pipe them to articles so they get more love and attention.
- After setting your photo, edit this page, find your special day, and replace File:Hello POTN.jpg with the correct filename.
- Please avoid setting pictures past (7) days from the current day. Check on the Suggestions; add something lulzy.
- Give other people a chance to add pictures.
- Setting a picture for an additional day can be acceptable, but please avoid doing this unless time is almost out and there's no future POTNs set.
- NOTE: detailed instructions for setting POTN are in the description box when you edit this page.
- Remember: When setting XOTNs, make sure the content is relevant to the current times. Don't set some shitty picture from 2005 as POTN.
