Hey, while you're banning, how about getting rid of The_Dipshit? You guys definitely don't like hosting a vector for radicalization of young white American men, right? Its routine explicit calls for violence have led to multiple acts of domestic terrorism, including outright murders, already. Surely that can't be something you enjoy?

Reddit admin, speaking officiallyOriginal Poster458 points · 1 month ago

This is correct. You had to have a comment or post in /r/thanosdidnothingwrong prior to a few minutes before 10:00 PM UTC on July 9th which was the approximate cut off time to be included. We didn't use subscriptions because the banned usernames appear in the moderator's ban list, and we wanted to avoid revealing something that isn't public info.

I'm confused by the "cutoff time." It was originally stated:

You had to have a comment or post in /r/thanosdidnothingwrong prior to a few minutes before 10:00 PM UTC on July 9th which was the approximate cut off time to be included.

Technically 10:00 PM is 22:00 UTC. But u/NewAlexandria posted their comment on July 9 at 17:48 UTC, which is well before 22:00 (10:00 PM) UTC. I'm asking because I commented at 16:13 UTC and did not get a badge either. Could there be confusion with the actual cutoff time?

Edit: I can't count.

Serious question: was there much direct communication between Reddit staff and Marvel representatives behind the scenes as this got bigger?

I'm not suggesting this was all some marketing scheme, the sub has been around for a while. But it was obviously an opportunity that people such as the Russo brothers took advantage of to have some fun and increase hype surrounding their movie.

I'm just curious, that's all.

Hmm... this is an official blog post from reddit.com and it very heavily features advertising for a movie franchise that has (no surprise here) been getting it's ad-equivalent posts on the front page often as of late.

So that's very shady / r/HailCorporate like on its own, but then we see this article how reddit is trying to get more advertisers to work with their platforom, here: https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/29/how-reddit-plans-to-make-money-through-advertising.html

  • Reddit has indicated it wants to increase advertising across the site, including more display and mobile ads and sponsored opportunities.

All in all I think this is what reddit is moving towards, lots of paid-for-crap on the front page with corporate-organic (corganic?) posts dominating.

You could even split the users list into batches of 1.000 and run the thing in threads to send off 700 requests in parallel.

If each request takes a second, you'd be done in about 15min. (1.000 times 700 parallel requests taking a second is still 1.000 seconds)

Why did it take so long? Can you post the script?

It's stuff like this that makes me love Reddit. This and that time that guy was giving us minute to minute updates about his cheating wife!

What an incredibly useful investment of administrator resources that totally couldn't have gone towards something like searching in new modmail instead.

Why did it take 3 hours for the script to run? Was there an API call for every user?

This constant, unignorable shitshow has almost made me quit Reddit having just started not even a month ago. In my opinion ruined Reddit for me for a whole week.

I never subscribed to that sub because I fundamentally disagree with Thanos, and the Empire as a matter of fact. I am a Jedi, like my father before me and I will rally every metahuman, mutant and person with special abilities to fight against tyranny and destruction wherever I go.

Why am I subscribed to this...?

I don't think I've ever seen an /r/blog post in my feed before. Why all of a sudden?

I feel like I'm constantly typing that I'm new to the reddit community, and here I am saying it again.

I didn't get this at all (never been into marvel, eep)

I saw the posts on the front page and then the banhammer coming. I thought it was kinda dumb, whatever fanboy stuff, didn't really realize the point.

Thanks for sharing this blog. I get it now.

Bravo! This was such a cool project and I love the Reddit Community and the commitment!

After 3 weeks of not knowing what the fuck was going on, glad someone finally made a fucking readable summary of events. Hopefully the annoying shitposting subsides

An hour in, and like half the comments are crying about TD.

For when you're so tolerant, that you literally want to ban people you disagree with.
