FAQs

What is Screenchop?
Screenchop is a screenshot ranking site for posting your best images in gaming. Similar to Reddit, a unique ranking algorithm is used on the front page to display the latest trending screenshots. Upvote the awesome screenshots, and downvote the bad!

What type of images are allowed?
We accept only JPG, JPEG, and PNG files only. 5MB Max per image.

What are tags?
Tags are basically the same as #hashtags. They are used here to categorize screenshots by game and genre. By using tags, you are increasing exposure of your screenshot in the Tags page.

Etiquette

When posting your screenshots, please try to follow the guidelines below. These aren't necessarily enforced, as it is the users that will decide to upvote and downvote content. However, following these simple guidelines will help keep the content quality high.

  • Scenic, funny, interesting, and artistic screenshots are highly recommended! Interesting screenshots of your toon are also welcome!
  • When possible, remove the user interface (UI) when taking a screenshot. Many games have this option. If not, it's okay! Just try to keep the interface and chat logs minimal if possible
  • Tag your images! Tagging your screenshots increases the chance of exposure as game categories are based on your screenshots being tagged and searchable

TL;DR

If someone else might own the copyright to it, don’t upload it. Don’t upload gore, obscenity, advertising, solicitations, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages illegality. Don’t hotlink to such content, or to file-sharing or torrent sites. If you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from accessing images on Screenchop.

About

I am a Web Developer, Gamer and Redditor! That being said, I created Screenchop as a concept for users to share their ingame screenshots similar to the way the Reddit ranking system works.

Screenchop is still in an early development phase, so expect frequent updates, bug fixes and major changes within the next few months. I promise to keep the interface clean, intuitive and very minimal on ads.
