[reddit change] gold only subreddits, beta

Greetings reddlings,

Today we rolled out a feature that will allow users with reddit gold to set subreddits as 'gold only' when they are being created. These subreddits are only accessible to users with reddit gold.

What this is:

redditors constantly impress us with the enthusiasm and wit with which they create niche communities. We are also blown away by the ongoing support redditors show for reddit itself and for one another by buying and gifting reddit gold. We want to enable redditors to combine these two things by allowing the gilded of reddit to create their own secret societies that may or may not exist.

What this is not:

An attempt to make money by creating paywalls or by making reddit 'pay-to-win'. We think reddit is awesome and would hate for it to be unavailable to someone just because they couldn't afford it (you can always send us a postcard for gold). We hope this feature will allow users to be more creative with reddit gold. As ever, we want the features available with reddit gold to be 'nice to have' not 'must have'.1


This feature is experimental in nature and so we are entering it into a beta period for 3 months in which we will be taking feedback from the community. This feedback will be factored into any changes we make to the feature.

The Details:

  • a user must have gold to create a gold only subreddit .

  • subreddits can only be set as a gold only when being created.

  • regular subreddits can only be converted to gold only via making a request to the admins2.

  • a collection of all gold only subreddits is available in the reddit gold tab on the subreddits page

  • gold only subreddits come with their own shiny stylesheet.

  • users do not require gold to moderate gold only subreddits.

  • mods can disable ads in gold only subreddits - we'd prefer it if you didn't but if you do we hope this will allow your community to be more creative with its stylesheets, e.g.:


We are allowing gold users to create their own version of r/lounge and are excited to see the splendiferous subreddits they create. See all of them at /subreddits/gold.

1 We recently started offering early access to episodes r/upvoted ad free for gold members. Swing by the r/lounge on Wednesdays at midnight EST.

2 Requests will be granted on a case-by-case basis. The chief factor we will be considering is whether the subreddit theme is appropriate for gold.

mods can disable ads in gold only subreddits

Ah. And there's the (pretty reasonable) justification for this idea.

Normal subs aren't allowed to disable ads. But if all the subscribers are already paying in some way... why not?

Comment deleted3 years ago

I think there would be a level of leeway for subreddits that only serve as redirects.

Or insane shit like r/Ooer

I can't imagine what kind of ads you could run there which would somehow make money

But ads are visible* on r/Ooer

*Well, they're displayed. Nothing is visible on that subreddit because looking at it makes you go blind.

r/eli5 (our redirect) is doing this too. Admins if you care about this let us know and we'll change it.

By "can", is it possible to hide ads with CSS, or are you just not allowed to do it?

It's not feasible for reddit to prevent it in any automated fashion; they just have to respond to cases they find out about.

It's entirely feasible. They could write easily write a program that takes a screenshot every time a CSS edit is made and just check it for ads.


Title: Tasks

Title-text: In the 60s, Marvin Minsky assigned a couple of undergrads to spend the summer programming a computer to use a camera to identify objects in a scene. He figured they'd have the problem solved by the end of the summer. Half a century later, we're still working on it.

<3 you xkcd bot

Um, no. It would be absolutely trivial for them to use a unique test ad and have even the most basic pattern-finding tools check for it.

You can even use either qwebengine or qwebview totally headless to take screenshots of webpages without actually launching a gui.

Look at all these noobs downvoting you.

Hmm! Possible, possible. Some browser compatibility issues; they could use webdriver or whatever to run an actual browser. That's definitely at the edge of "do we give enough of a fuck", though.

Note I didn't say "impossible", just "not feasible". You're right though that it's more feasible than I thought!

Is another one of those things disabling downvotes/voting at all for non-subscribers? I've seen many subreddits do this, and it's a pain in the ass. It also looks like it would violate the "[don't] disable or tamper with site functionality" rule.

Original Poster1 point·2 years ago

Currently this is allowed - mods do it via CSS, but we encourage them not to whenever possible as it can easily be circumvented by disabling the subreddit CSS or using a mobile app.

Not like y'all need the ads when you track every person's movements with your pixels.

      I am begining to see the big picture here.

YOU give use money, instead of our advertisers

Honestly, it would have made more sense to just give gold users the option to hide ads everywhere.

This seems like another barely useful feature with almost no applicability like snoovatars.

I'd rather they focussed their efforts on making comments searchable.

We're doing this to give the reddit community a chance to create their own awesome things surrounding reddit gold.

Sounds like your run-of-the-mill bullshit. What does creativity have to do with gold only communities?

It doesn't matter why you're doing it. Isn't it all still the same end result, adding a subscription fee to reddit?

Hey, any plans to reopen this feature? I have a subreddit that I want to make gold only.

Original Poster3 points·2 years ago

You can request to have an existing subreddit switched to gold-only by messaging the admins:

I did not know this. Thanks.

This feels like adding a feature to gold for the sheer hell of it. It doesn't really add any actual value to having gold. There's nothing about having gold that would make them an interesting subset of users for topical discussions.

I'm struggling to even imagine a sub, restricted to gold, that would offer anything you couldn't get from any other sub. Other than, I guess, a barrier against sockpuppets. But that horse is already out of the barn - the most interesting subs already exist.

I'm guessing this is going to be another feature, like multi-reddits, that users quickly forget about.

I think younger users are less likely to purchase gold so I bet the subset of users with it are older.

Unless they make a sex joke in a default and someone feels the need to spend a whopping $4 on them.

Multireddits are incredible. Wouldn't be without mine!

-4 points·3 years ago

It's another moneygrab from a bunch of greedy censor-happy admins. If we can get rid of SRS vote brigades, shadowbans and popular threads disappearing from the front page, maybe the site would be worth paying for.

The cabal did this

How does this work for "Charter Members" who don't currently have gold?

Original Poster9 points·3 years ago

Charter Members have can create and have access to gold only subreddits.

As a charter member, I hope these gold only subreddits wither and die. I appreciate your desire to add new features and make gold more attractive, but there was a lot of discussion among charter members when gold first rolled out. This kind of community division is precisely what we wanted to avoid.

Original Poster3 points·3 years ago

We are aware of these concerns and built the feature with limitations in mind including a 3 month beta/review period. This is about giving redditors a choice in what they want reddit gold to be, rather than having r/lounge being the only thing it can be.

I honestly encourage you to go back and look through the early discussions in the lounge on this topic. The consequences are well understood. Best of luck with your beta. Hope you don't Digg 4.0 yourselves. I've been on reddit too long to pretend I don't care.


Wtf are charter members?

People who bought gold before there were any features thus voluntarily deciding to pay money exclusively to keep reddit afloat.


When gold first came out there was a lot of discussion among the charter members. We didn't want the lounge to have any meaningful content and divide the userbase.

Gold was about supporting reddit and testing out new features. Frankly, even the perception that gold conferred a meaningful benefit was to be avoided. As long as the benefits were limited to showing more comments at once or hiding ads, then everyone would be cool with it.

Reddit is a platform for discussion. By dividing the users in this way, admins are fragmenting the discussion.

The only way this doesn't destroy reddit is if the gold subs wither and die. Everybody wins when we all play in the same big sandbox.

lounge is just gold circlejerk + naming servers anyway

Original Poster13 points·3 years ago

Thanks for posting your thoughts and feedback. I am very aware of this concern and definitely agree with some of your points. We intentionally placed limitations upon this feature including the 3 month beta period after which we will review how it has been used.

Please be mindful, during April Fools a few years back, the login servers suffered catastrophically and they were down for several hours. When they came back, we discovered quickly that only users who had reddit gold were able to log in. Users who did not have gold were understandably outraged to see all of reddit become a public Lounge... One where they could see the gentry chatting and having a good time, but could not participate. When the login setvers were back up to full, those without gold went to great lengths to downvote every single gold-only comment, thread, and submission they could find. It was a revolution; those who had been bewilderingly wondering where everyone else was and those who had been exulting in their unfettered ability to post were quickly overwhelmed by the frustrated and angry users who had been locked out all morning.

Please take that into consideration; we already have an exclusive tier of subs like r/top and r/CenturyClub... And a disconcerting amount of meta subs that exist to create mischief. Be very careful with this.

What the hell is r/top?

If you're in the top 1% of karma among reddit's users, you gain access to r/top. Meanwhile, r/CenturyClub is for folks with 100,000 karma or more. It's something that users set up, it's not created by the admins.

I was familiar with CC, but not r/top. How do you know if you're in the top 1%?

*shrugs* Well, I was messaged by a bot when I got in. It's easier to get into r/top than it is to get into CenturyClub, it's a lower threshold for r/top.

Slow and steady wins the race and takes away the best years of my life

True enough. :P

Really? I'm in the century club but have never got anything about r/top.

Well, message the mods at r/top and ask them to let you in?

I may be fairly new to the reddit world, but it seems to me that reddit gold is not some sort of conspiracy but simply a way to support a pretty awesome site that must have server and storage needs that don't come cheap.

What the charter members here - including me - are afraid of is that certain content is only visible to paid users, thereby creating a special user status of those that can look down on the non-paying 'normal' users.

This does not have to be intentional, but would happen nonetheless.

For me this is against the spirit of reddit and against the spirit of reddit gold. And that would be a reason to stop being a paying member of this site.


It's a pretty harmless and fun idea, and really provides no other benefit then what private subreddits already do. It therefore passes your standard of what a Reddit Gold feature should be.

What discussion is being fragmented? The one in r/lounge ? The vast majority of reddit gold members don't participate in them, and even most people who are awarded for gilding seem to have little interest. Maybe now there will be more.

Reddit Gold and now Reddit Gifts succeed by your criteria by leaps and bounds -- funding one of the most-visited sites in the world while maintaining its original independent vibe, or brand, as it were. It actually is quite an astonishing achievement.

Cheer up

What discussion is being fragmented? The one in r/lounge[2] ? The vast majority of reddit gold members don't participate in them, and even most people who are awarded for gilding[3] seem to have little interest. Maybe now there will be more.

That's the goddamned point. The lounge is intentionally useless. By having anything other than a circlejerk in the gold subs, you are fragmenting the community and withholding discussion/content from those unable or unwilling to pay.

Reddit gold didn't exclude non-paying members from meaningful discussion in the past.

Look, I've written about this in multiple threads in this post. I've said all I'm going to. This gold subreddits plan is so fundamentally flawed that I am amazed it ever made it off the whiteboard.

But they said it's not a paywall and I don't think anyone would lie on the internet.

-7 points·3 years ago(5 children)

your link is broken. You don't need a / before the url

Comment deleted3 years ago

Voat is hardly broken. It's still in alpha, but nothing stands out as "broken" to me. Could you clarify?


You remind me of the guy who started a kickstarter to make his own crowd funding site.

Don't think this will turn out well.

See all of them at /subreddits/gold

I don't see any content here. Is the page broken, or is it because I don't have gold?

Surely, displaying the list of gold-only subs to non-gold users would be good incitement to buy gold?

It's displaying for me - though I have gold, albeit only for one more day.

Since they all have the "private" icon next to them, I'm guessing they're basically treated as a special type of private subreddit - so those without gold won't be able to see them listed.

Given they keep promoting this page to non-gold users, this seems like it is not the intended behavior.

hey u/powerlanguage, it looks like you have a bug. The /subreddits/gold page is only visible to gold users, but you keep promoting it as if non-gold users can see its content as well

I was thinking exactly the same. And it's stupid that they actually advertise that page on the reddit gold about page.

8 points·3 years ago

You do realise people get golded over stupid stuff also? This sounds like a buy gold ploy as it's doing nothing more than segregating the community.

This is... weird. And kinda cool. And questionably useful?

making pay to post subreddits.

P much.

I really don't like this change. IMO, just because one of your comments gets gilded doesn't mean you will produce epic content every time.

3 points·3 years ago

doesn't mean you will produce epic content every time.

Or ever. A lot of really stupid crap gets gilded all the time.

6 points·3 years ago·edited 3 years ago

I think this is a terrible idea but doubt I can really convey my feelings without ranting.

Saying a paywall is not a paywall doesn't change the fact that is in effect a paywall. You might argue you aren't doing it for money, but I can't see that really being true. Every Gold-Only feature is really an enticement to encourage people to covet and buy Gold.

I don't even see the actual point of it barring paywall. It isn't private since anyone with gifted or purchased Gold can access it. It isn't completely public like the rest of the reddit community is.

Thankfully, I think this is a pretty self-correcting problem, it's not like you made a sub Gold-Only submitters but viewable by all.

I don't want to say you are lying, but you are saying one thing and doing the opposite.

Bullshit. It's a paywall.

So the way I stumbled upon this was in the setting of a private sub.

the sub is 4 months old. Idk if this is a bug or intentional.

"Gold only" is grayed out, so you can't switch to it.

IMO it should be a checkbox, not part of the existing radio button set. What if I want gold only but also want to restrict submissions?

IMO it should be a checkbox, not part of the existing radio button set. What if I want gold only but also want to restrict submissions?

This is what I expected it to be, it's pretty minor but it's probably something worth changing.

Original Poster8 points·3 years ago

Should be visible, but non-selectable. Can you confirm?

ah ok, that is correct. I can't select it.

Why include the toggle in the settings?

Because you can toggle off of it if it's already set, you just can't toggle it back on.

Ah okay. That makes sense. Thanks for the reply.

What do you think about u/teaearlgraycold's suggestion above?

IMO it should be a checkbox, not part of the existing radio button set. What if I want gold only but also want to restrict submissions?

What if a mod accidentally changes it away from gold-only? Will it just have to wait for the admins to turn it back?

8 points·3 years ago·edited 1 year ago


6 points·3 years ago

I agree, I think this is a terrible idea.

I also don't think there's much risk of these turning out to be 'good' communities though, based on the quality of r/lounge.

The quality of r/lounge has intentionally been kept the way it is. When gold first rolled out, the charter members discussed the risks of creating a divided community. If the lounge actually had anything useful it would be like creating a tiered user base. By keeping the lounge for circlejerking, it ensured the real discussion remained in public subs.

If all this new change comes to is circlejerking and inside jokes, then the damage is relatively small.

What happens when brigading originates from one of these secret societies?
What happens when companies subvert them for advertising or "special" promotions?
What happens when the discussion in r/science goes to shit because the mods and subject matter experts migrate to /r/science_gold?

I disagree.

Reddit gold exists as an alternative to using ad supported reddit.

With it comes other benefits like seeing some features first, coupons to other services and other stuff probably, but I think the front facing reddit will allways exist as is.

Could gold exclusive communities form, sure, but reddit is fractured enough that even if they do there will always be a group of procrastinators commenting on stuff they like or reciting le epic memes. Otherwise they'll turn into the next digg and people will find a different website.

This is retarded.

It would be nice if you could add approved submitters to gold-only subs, since exceptions are already being made for mods. Right now, less-well known service bots who aren't constantly gilded can't be let into these subs (assuming they ever take off), and the mods wouldn't necessarily want to add them as mods since that gives access to the modlog and traffic pages, even without any permissions.

Thank you for the continued release of new features! Combined muti one day, new sub options the next! Will be coming back tomorrow!

So what happens if say you mod a gold only sub, then your gold expires? Are you not able to access your own sub anymore?

Original Poster12 points·3 years ago

users do not require gold to moderate gold only subreddits.

Oops, missed that bullet

4 points·3 years ago

Dodged that bullet? :)

So, when you receive gold, will you be getting a message from each gold subreddit, showing that you are now an approved submitter? If not, how will you know? (Besides looking them up via a list?)

Also, I'm a little weary on this concept. I will see plenty of subreddits emerge, trying to replace r/lounge. I think more should be put into the lounge, and that whole MegaLounge system, instead of just trying to pawn the gold members off to other subreddits. (That kind of seems like what this could be?)

I'm completely open to try this out, I will even be creating one to test the waters myself. I'll report back at a later date, with a more detailed analysis.

5 points·3 years ago

Ahhhh, I need to be able to set gold only but also restrict posting to approved members.

It's mostly for a fun idea - I've just made r/CenturyClubGold... but I could see a legitimate need for it (if a legitimate need for gold-only communities exists in the first place).

Why not keep the CC rule of only being able to view it with 100K + link/comment karma?

3 points·3 years ago

If I set it to private, it wouldn't use the new feature of gold-only.

Technically, CC is merely a private sub, where mods approve your access if you have 100,000 link or comment karma.

I'd like to set this sub (even though it's mostly just a joke) as private + gold required, and then I'd let in anyone with 100k a la CenturyClub. :)

ahhh gotcha. didn't realize that the privacy/gold only would contradict one another.

So reddit is finally coming to an end...It was good while it lasted boys.

Problem is that when I try to go for it, it says "Too new reddit acc."

Original Poster1 point·2 years ago

There are currently some restrictions on new users creating subreddits. Read more here.

Pay to win.


oye, any chance the gold setting could be made available post-creation eventually?

I created a couple subs in a hurry trying to ensure a land rush didn't snatch them because I have a feeling they could be really good, and now I can't set them to gold only.

Original Poster1 point·3 years ago

We want to keep this as only on creation for now. Make a request to have your subreddits switched via modmail and we'll help you out.

my bad, thank you very much!

I suggest adding a link to gold-only subreddits, into the message that is sent when a user receives reddit gold. (If it's not already)

Original Poster19 points·3 years ago·edited 3 years ago

It is about allowing the reddit community to be more creative around reddit gold. Historically only r/lounge has been gold-only. However there is no good reason why redditors shouldn't be able to create their own version of the lounge. Some subreddits have tried to do this by manually inviting people when they get gold but it is hard to manage long term.

Allowing gold only subreddits makes sense, since almost every post on r/lounge is "look at this picture of gold/a smug walrus I found on google images".

This is a controversial choice you're making as an admin, but hopefully this works out - now all I need is someone to gift me gold (though I'm totally not begging)!

Tell that to u/Greypo

You don't need gold at any current time to access the MegaLounges, and it will stay that way. They will also only accept gilded users from r/lounge, so r/LoungeVersionTwo or whatever gets made will not funnel into r/MegaLounge.

EDIT: Ah, you meant the hard to manage long term thing. It really isn't - you just have to not give up on it. :)

Don't worry, I figured the MegaLounges would stay just as they are, so people wouldn't need current gold to post.

You do mod 8340923874 subreddits, and do a pretty good job. :)

(number subject to rounding error)

It wouldn't be possible without the amazing work of both reddit and other extensions such as the Moderator Toolbox that make it so easy to moderate multiple subreddits at once.

Those guys are the real heroes of subreddit moderation.

checks toolbox


So you basically made this because of r/reallounge?

-33 points·3 years ago(0 children)

Is there a worry about automod getting overloaded again? We already saw it take down reddit once. So maybe it's not a bad idea to take off the load from it whenever possible.

Also, not everyone is computer literate enough to be able to program automod to do that. This allows a lot more people to be able to make these types of subreddits without requiring knowledge of how to write a script.

Is there a worry about automod getting overloaded again?

Automoderator is a hack, regardless. Any time automoderator features get made into proper reddit features, it's always a good thing. Same with RES.

It's great that RES and automoderator give the community a way to enhance reddit without admin labor, but proper enhancements to reddit core are even better.

Original Poster12 points·3 years ago

I just don't see the reason for spending resources on something with no real purpose for it in mind.

The purpose, in this sense, would be to add more value to reddit gold.

-38 points·3 years ago(0 children)

But I just think there are so many other features that users would want to make gold more attractive.

Can you name some? I'm honestly curious what you think would be better. While I agree with you that this feature seems redundant, I think it will do what they're hoping and increase reddit gold purchases (because "back of the bus" and all that)

-56 points·3 years ago(0 children)

I don't have access to the same numbers that you do, but I would bet that the vast majority of people who make and run active subreddits already have gold.

I kind of had that impression too, but then not many people would have cared about this change:

Quite a lot of people appreciated it though, so it seems like there are actually a pretty large number of active moderators that don't already have gold.

Because soon: 'New gold feature: Bypass captchas when posting to a new sub!' and so forth.

It would never make sense to give reddit gold a spam advantage because then every reddit bot would buy reddit gold the second it became worth more than $2.50 before it got banned.

They said this isn't a way to create make money but if a gold only subreddit does take off then people will want to get gold to participate. It seems like a plausible possibility.

Here are some other benefits I considered in my lounge comment

This will basically ban throwaways from any subs you create. It might also cause me to be much more willing to share private information about my life. I'd also assume that this would reduce the amount of teenagers on these subreddits. Seems like an awesome idea.

Well, that's been a big feature in the past. I'm not sure if you're familiar with SomethingAwful, or "Hope you got 10 bux".

Interesting... I am curious to see where this leads. I'm sure r/centurylounge and r/megalounge and those other subreddits where you have to be gilded in a particular subreddit (or a particular number of times) would like it. ...I see quite a few such subreddits have already been made since this announcement.

Hopefully it doesn't lead to segmentation of existing communities... But somehow I doubt it would, in most cases. I'm sure it'll lead to some ridiculous accusations about the admins (and mods that create such subreddits), though.

Clever. Well done.

Can a subreddit that's gold-only add approved submitters who no longer have gold? Seems like there are always going to be exceptions to the audience you want to allow in a sub, and it would be necessary for some places.

I think this is a great change. This will increase the quality in new subs that want to aim for high-quality content. No longer can trolls/bots just "respawn" to downvote content that goes against their own. This could be a step towards the type of discussion/content that Reddit had in the early days, before the Digg exodus. Subreddits with gold-required won't get the "summer rush" of highschool students, won't get raided as easily by *chan or 9gag or whoever.

Well. I don't exactly see much of the point but why not.

I already enjoy r/circlejerk_gold

Is there any chance whatsoever of a future option for "bought gold themselves", so gifted gold doesn't count?

Hear me out for a second....

There are sites out there that long predate reddit that improved discourse significantly merely by making it cost a little bit of money (and therefore effort) to join.

Pretty sure I'm missing the point with r/rotator. When I view it with subreddit styles enabled, all I get is a completely blank red page. Not the best choice for showing off a feature...

Admittedly, even with styles disabled, the topic list is pretty inscrutable.

Nope, nothing in IE or Firefox. Maybe it's a webkit thing. Or a u/rbemrose thing. shrug No worries.

Works for me in chrome.

Can confirm nothing happens in Firefox.

You announced this less than an hour after I received gold. I can only assume it was in honor of my gilding.

I've just requested that one of my subs becomes a gold only sub.

The change has broken my custom style sheet. The golden style sheet is different. What are the differences?

Is this a bug as the stylesheet recently change for reddit and the gold one maybe more similar to the old one?

I'm currently unable to edit the #header element with custom css

Original Poster1 point·3 years ago

gold only subreddits add a .gold-only class to the body element to apply the custom style.

You can overwrite this by adding .gold-only before the selector. E.g.

.gold-only #header {

Let me know if you have any specific questions or issues and I'd be happy to help you out.

Hey Just PM'd you

I have now got my sub looking the way it did before.

But isn't just the header what was different. There are a few other elements that were different to. The stylesheet must be different as I've had to use the !important tag a few times to fix things.

Changes I would make:

  • Remove the first part. I don't want to have to buy gold to make a gold-only subreddit. That's just silly.

  • Possible options to make the subreddit accessible to users without gold, but only users with gold can post.

  • Don't give gold members their own stylesheet. It makes them look bland and unorigional. If they wanted to, they could make their own stylesheet.

These are my only complaints so far.

What if it a sub reddit I really enjoy? :( But still a great plus for gold members I think I might become one.

If you can't afford to spend $4 on the Internet, a website's features aren't your biggest concerns.

Edit: to clarify, most people stating "I wish I could give you gold" are, in fact, 12 year olds whose moms won't let them spend internet money.

I think the bigger issue would be having a credit card or debit card.

That said you could just go to the store and get a online gift card, but most people are probably too lazy for that.

most people are probably too lazy for that.

Then they should probably stop begging for/whining about not having gold. :P

Not everyone who can afford to spend $4 has the means to spend that money over the internet.

Lots of people don't have credit cards
