Question: Is there a way to have AutoMod send an automatic message listing out general guidelines to all users who try to post and to which users would have to type !agree before being allowed to post?

I'm struggling to have people actually read what we've clearly stated as our rules and guidelines. This would help greatly in cutting down the amount of time we are spending adjusting flairs, removing repetitive content, etc. Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide. I appreciate the help.

My 8 month old & 3000 subsciber subreddit, no longer shows up in the community search. Quarantined?

There are no signs that my subreddit has been quarantined from my top mod account.

I used a new account on a different computer, and you can not find any existence of my sub.

r/YandereSuccubus

Or my account or my fellow mods account in the search now either.

I know I'm not shadow banned because people see my posts.

My younger and smaller subreddits still show up in the search, so age and subscriber amount isn't an issue.

Discriminatory Subreddit Rules

I am NOT the owner/moderator on any subreddit that has this rule. I'm asking other people's thoughts on it from the moderator mindset.

Is it Discriminatory/prejudicial to make a rule that allows people to be banned from a group simply for interacting with the NSFW side of Reddit? I'm not a moderator, but I have been banned from subreddits simply for interacting with posts while having followed NSFW subbredits, and not for being rude, crude, or otherwise disparaging towards the users of that subreddit.
For Example:

NSFW User/Content Restriction

Explicit content or content designed to drive engagement to adult platforms is prohibited. The purpose of the subreddit is fashion advice, not sex work or fetishization.

Users who interact with NSFW profiles, content, or fetish communities are prohibited from interacting with this subreddit. Violators will be banned at the Moderation team’s discretion.

What does it mean for your subreddit to be banned for a lack of moderation?

I remember a while back ago i tried making a sub reddit but they just kept getting banned for no reason a day or two later.

I dont know if I did anything wrong, I just made a sub reddit, added some flairs, and that was it. Was I supposed to do somethiing else? is there soemthing else that I missed?

I dont remember what the exact reason they gave was, but I think it has something to do with moderation or something.

Do you guys have any tips/check list to make sure your new sub reddit doesnt get banned immeditately?

Removed: This post was removed by Reddit's spam filters.

I'm a mod and approved the same post several times but when I press refresh on my browser, the post won't publish and still not searchable

It's a news story and links are from major news outlet CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, Youtube, twitter and some local news outlets

Anyone here try out the new "Harassment filter"? What are your thoughts on it?

I've been trying it and and I'm not overly impressed so far. It's hit and miss on things. ex. Some things are just rude comments directed at no one specific or at a political matter, others are two people arguing over a political issue. Those really don't strike me as harassment, so I had to look up what reddit considers to be harassment and their outline of that was kind of vague and open to interpretation. So that just makes things even harder when it comes to dealing with these flagged comments. Also why doesn't reddit have a default remove option for what it filters meaning that whatever it flags just gets removed instead of it being filtered for mod review. If reddit's filter thinks those comments are a problem then part of me thinks they should just be outright removed instead of adding even more to the mod workload. If a dozen or even a few dozen comments end up getting removed from a sub because of the filter, it is not going to make much of a difference to the overall of the sub and then the mods can focus on other issues instead of having to spend their time double checking everything the filter is collecting.

How to get Interactive Banner on NEW Reddit

https://new.reddit.com/r/HunterXHunter/

When you will hover your mouse over the Banner, it will change.

I have seen some posts about it when I searched but it seems they were mostly related to old reddit, also posts are quite old

Mass amounts of comments on my sub being removed by Reddit

So I run a politically based subreddit and I’m finding that a lot of comment submissions are being removed by Reddit. In my opinion the vast majority of these comments do not break any rules. I’ve been adding users to the approved user list to help prevent a lot of this. But its a sub with over 16K users, so hard to do this with all trusted users.

What else can I do?

What's your policy on users who spam on topic posts?

I just had a user make almost a dozen post today, but all the posts are on-topic and relevant to my subreddit. My guess is they're an eager beaver since that user is also actively responding to replies. No harm has been done. The user has not flouted any of the rules though I can see some folks consider it spamming, but imho they have not crossed the line.

My instinct is to just leave the user alone and do nothing with their posts, but I am curious what you guys think. Would you handle this differently?

Are we allowed to use bots to post content to our subreddits?

If I wanted to use an AI agent script that I wrote that extracts information about the latest research articles in the field, can I also use that agent to post the content to my sub? Or will I get banned for automated activity? It would be supervised (obviously).

How can I see the oldest posts on my subreddit? I tried sorting by new and scrolled to the bottom of the feed and after about a year it cuts off the posts and does not show others. I know I started posting in the sub way before that. How can I access those older posts?

Auto-baning link posts

There seems to be a glitch in my community that auto-bans all link posts.

Me and another member who brought the problem to my attention had experimented yesterday yo know exactly what link posts would be ba banned, and as it turns out sharing something from outside of reddit isn't a problem, however making a post and putting link in it would cause the post to be banned but not completely as it would require me -The admin- to approve or ban the post (trashcan situation).

However and despite this the posts wouldn't appear on the queue or the community so unless I enter the profile of someone who posted on my community, I'd never know to approve the post.

Another thing is that this situation in fact includes me (but without the trashcan appearing on the side).

That's all the info we were able to collect yesterday. Please find a solution

(Ps: I'll put the flair away posting because the problem is about posts)

banned user, what happens to past comments

if a user is perma banned from reddit, and each comment individually reported, will those comments eventually vanish from reddit servers? each subreddit still displays "1 comment" (but then displays 0 comments when clicked on). comments also still appear when searched via Google. it'd be very helpful to have their past comments vanish entirely so they don't still display when googled. thanks

Just Hours Ago I Could See Post Stats by Clicking Posts, Now I Get No Data

Hi...just hours ago, Reddit, on my computer had one look. With that look I could click on my sub post and look at stats such as upvote %, how many times shared etc. I went away for a few hours and now that is gone completely, and my reddit seems to be redesigned. It's truly bizzare. Did this happen to anyone else and if so, do you know how to go back to how it was? Thank you for the help.

Where can I synchronize the calendar widget now?

The function used to be under "Community Appearance". Now with the new design I can't find the synchronization function anymore (very annoying) - and the new entered calendar dates don't show in the widget.

mods who manage wiki or automoderator are not geting credit

Under the new "inactive mod" rules, mods who don't deal directly with the mod queue all the time are being marked inactive.

This kinda breaks how some groups function, some of us are better coders and automod wranglers, others better at managing users.

How can I get back to the old Reddit mod queue?

I "tried out" the new mod queue and really don't like it (unsurprising since I prefer old.reddit anyway) but now I can't find a way to get back to the old mod queue.

Thanks!

Insert year only into recurring post

I've scheduled some posts to repeat every 12 months and I'd like the subject line to include the current year.

{{date %B %d, %Y}} is for the full date. {{year, %Y}} and variations of that don't work.

Subreddit (/r/Repin) I created got banned for reason I fail to understand (Where/How to appeal?)

Dear fellow MODs and others,

Last week I created a sub for the renowned painter Ilya Repin (1844 - 1930) and today I found it banned. Here's the system message:

"This subreddit was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s content policy against creating or repurposing a sub to reconstitute or serve the same objective as a previously banned or quarantined subreddit."

What does this mean? Not only I had zero idea about a previous sub going with a similar name that was banned, nor do I understand the reason behind it. For your information, the sub had only two posts (100% non-politcal nor controversial) with no interaction before the ban.

So my question is, can I appeal for an un-ban? If yes, how?

Thank you very much in advance.

Massive problems using reddit's iOS mobile app to moderate

My co-head moderator on a couple of 200,000 member subreddits -- a guy with 12 years experience as a reddit moderator, uses reddit's iOS mobile app on his phone and tablet to moderate. This guy is really dedicated and puts in hours a day making sure that the subs run smoothly and are drama-free.

For weeks now many mod tools have been unusable or nearly unusable for him, and it's very discouraging. He's still putting in the same massive hours but can barely get anything done anymore.

Is this problem using the iOS app to moderate on reddit a known issue? I've seen things mentioned here and there on /r/ModSupport, but I have no idea if it's as bad for everyone as it is for my friend, since I use old reddit on a PC to moderate.

Since I don't use a phone to moderate I don't even know if there's a better place to ask this question. I used reddit's search function on this sub but can't find anything really relevant.

Thanks in advance for any help or insights that anyone can provide.

Hi, is the subreddit rule being operated automatically or artificially?

I have a subreddit and there are some rules with the post. However, I found that some people can post content that does not agree with my rules, then I have to remove them by myself. It seems that they are not restricted by the rules. But why in some subs, my post will be removed if my title or content is not allowed? Why their rules seem more automatic? How can I do or where can I set?
