Where did the R-rated section go?

The R-rated pictures section is no longer linked to from the front page of CollegeHumor. If you're a registered user, and are signed in, you can find a link in the footer of the site, or you can always access it by going to collegehumor.com/rrated. If you're not registered, you should sign up.

I submitted a picture, video, or article. What happens next?

We review every piece of content that gets submitted. If we like it, it will be featured on the site and will also appear in your user profile. If we don't think it's right for CollegeHumor, it will be deleted.

What happened to "local" content and "school pages"? Didn't that use to be a thing?

Yeah, we're not doing that anymore.

If I upload a video, picture, or article that I've made, do you own it?

We maintain the right to distribute your material via the CH and auxiliary methods that websites use nowadays (like mobile devices), but we don't own it forever, and we won't do something like put it on a DVD or in a book without your permission.

How do I delete my account?

Sign in, mouse-over your user name in the top right corner of the site, then click "Settings", then "Delete My Account".

I have a question that wasn't answered here. Where should I send it?
