BuzzFeed Community is the home for awesome posts created by BuzzFeeders who have successfully applied to be in BuzzFeed's Community. To apply to be in BuzzFeed's Community, all you need to do is sign up for an account, make a post that you think would do well on BuzzFeed, and click "Suggest" to suggest your post to our Community Editors.
For tips on how to make posts that will do well on BuzzFeed, go here.
For guidelines on what you should and shouldn't post on BuzzFeed, go here.
For BuzzFeed's User Agreement, go here.
If the post you suggest is good or fun or original or interesting or some glorious combination of those four things, our editors will feature it on the BuzzFeed Community page. (It's probably worth noting here that we generally avoid featuring commercially oriented posts.) From there, it has a chance to spread all over the Internet, bringing you fame, fortune, and the deserved adulation of your peers. If you can make it big on BuzzFeed, you can make it anywhere on the Internet, is the old saying that people definitely say.
But so here is how all of that works, in a list. People like lists, right?

When you first sign up, you will get one opportunity to Suggest each day, but as your Cat Power (see below) gets higher and higher the more Suggests per day you'll get.
5. Cat Power
As you know, the Internet is powered primarily by cats, so your Cat Power on BuzzFeed is an official measure of your rank in BuzzFeed's Community. The more you are featured and the better you get at making awesome posts, the higher your Cat Power will be, and with great Cat Power comes great Cat Responsibility, which, I don't know what that means, but it's fun to say.
When you first sign up for BuzzFeed, you will have one opportunity to Suggest a post each day. After your first post is accepted, your Cat Power will go from 0 to 1, and over time, as more of your posts are accepted, your Cat Power will increase, giving you more opportunities to Suggest posts for the Community page in addition to other cool perks and privileges.
