Would it be possible to maybe put in a rule for things that belong on r/magic ? Often I’m seeing slight of hand/gaff magic. Even piece from Penn and Teller’s Fool Us. A dude doing a snapchange, etc. These are illusions that are designed to fool you, not a BMF.

That's what I was just asking. Doesn't seem like a proper magic illusion belongs here. Otherwise this will end up simply duplicating r/magic.

Well fair enough, and good work. Though, it's come to the point where either I've become cynical and just don't think anything is black magic anymore, or this sub's content has become stale. Either way, I don't think any amount of human effort can save it now. Please prove me wrong, I used to love this sub.

IMO, shit that is generally not humanly possible or seems to bend the laws of physics should qualify as black magic.

You're busy bitching about /r/toptalent cross posts when This bullshit is getting reposted for the bajillionth fuckin time.

Edit: Ok, just noticed that this is an old, stickied post. Didn't show up on my phone... Put a freakin note into the fuckin rules if you're banning crossposts!

This sub has gone way downhill. Physics, astronomy, and basic biology are not examples of BMF, and neither is a picture of an optical illusion. So tired of the karma whores who flock here with reposts and shit.

Replying to a 2 year old post, I'm aware but this kind of comment triggers me. People don't expect actual magic, come on. But basic science? Like water freezing at cold temperatures? This sub used to be really fuckery stuff that seemed to bend the laws of physics but of course actually could be explained by some quantum physicist. Not a 7th grader.

Today I complained about a post featuring a common rope trick. Like the kind of thing that you see at kids birthday parties. And a bunch of indignant little children voted me down all day for suggesting it belonged on a r/magictricks sub.

No thanks.

I've left this sub now cause it's just 90% stuff like that. Good luck fixing it. Maybe I'll come back in a few months and see if anything has changed.

At least it was some kind of magic. Today's front page is a video of a guy setting various liquids on fire, explaining why they have different colours. And a video of a pile of caterpillars crawling, where apparently the "fuckery" is that caterpillars crawling on top of other crawling caterpillars have a higher ground speed. Slowclap.

I guess i should be lucky that at least "Are these feelings even real" wasn't used.

Just because they can be posted there doesn’t mean they automatically don’t belong here. There is a pretty large overlap, like probably every post here could be cross posted to r/damnthatsinteresting. And that’s fine, they just need to have a bmf element that to a complete layman doesn’t seem immediately explicable

Oh my God. I see the mods have officially deleted this post. They probably did this so people can't see just how awful and rule breaking so many of the posts in this sub have been. I'm honestly so disappointed. The mods have seemingly given on removing low quality and out of place posts and instead have put their effort into making an auto mod to poke fun at people rightfully complaining. Honestly, deleting the body of this post is such a disengenous move.

Camera fuckery in general is fine, it’s only posts that have been edited to deceive the viewer that will be removed.

What about posts that are obviously CGI or are otherwise using camera editing to create the bmf effect? Like, for example, this video uses camera editing to achieve its effects, but it's well-done enough that it's not necessarily obvious to everybody. But absolutely nobody in their right mind should be fooled by this guy. It's fun camera editing, sure, but is it truly bmf when it's so blatantly obvious that it's just editing?

Hey, great stuff, even though as a professional, you may never be satisfied with your work. Has there ever been an artist, in any field, who didn't think he could have done better. Ok. Maybe DaVinci, but how often does someone like that come around. Back in my undergrad down. I had some kinda class, where Michelangelo wasn't considered as talented, which is a debate all it's oen.
