It’s as soon as once more the primary Monday of a month, and so right here we’re once more with one other Meta thread. This one, nevertheless, can be completely different – it’s one thing new we need to attempt: A thread each three months going over what's been finished throughout this time interval. I need to speak about just a few distinct issues:
What we take away and why
Beginning with this quarterly submit, we wish to share with you the depend on what posts we take away and for what cause they had been eliminated. As we now have solely lately devised a method to robotically tabulate this, we wouldn’t have information for the primary month of the 12 months – however ought to have full information for the whole lot going ahead.
As you may see from this, our most typical removals are Rule 8 (promotional guidelines), Rule 7 (content material restrictions) and Rule 4 (reposts). Please notice that there are some removals not listed right here – however these represent posts caught by automated filters as being spam.
A notice on Rule Eight particularly, as there’s a widespread false impression about it – what it boils all the way down to is, the supply of something you undergo this subreddit must be lower than 10% of your whole submissions throughout all of Reddit, whether or not this be a YouTube channel or a information web site. Even when it isn’t a website you personal, Rule Eight nonetheless applies. This rule relies on previous etiquette tips from the early days of Reddit, and continues to be employed to assist weed out potential sources of extreme promotion and spam.
There have been roughly 7000 posts eliminated during the last two months for one cause or one other – this constitutes a big chunk of the workload concerned in group repairs, with remark removals making up the opposite largest chunk. Smaller however equally vital actions embody tweaking subreddit settings, organizing AMAs, typing up weekly posts identical to this one, warning/banning egregiously rulebreaking customers, and dealing with adjustments to the location as a complete once they crop up.
Weekly topical threads
The weekly Thematic Monday thread&restrict_sr=on&kind=new&t=all) has been receiving quantity of responses every week, which is sweet to see! We now have an inner record of subjects that we'll be relating going ahead, and hope to place one out each week for the rest of the 12 months and past
(No, I undoubtedly didn't miss every week on accident, what do you imply?).
Flairing, and the way it's been going
We launched submit flairs some time again now, and to date it's been a powerful success for my part.
