so to keep everyone up to date, there are three new moderators who've been added. The three new mods are listed in the other mod announcement .
There is a HUGE list of moderators in this subreddit however most have been inactive towards this community. So we've taken the liberty to push and push to be the new moderators for this community and it's finally gone through.
I can't speak on behalf of everyone else but since I saw the love and effort that you guys have shown, me and the moderators wanted to clean up this community and show the same love and effort that you guys have given us.
I wanted to express my thoughts on two topics particularly that have been a major issue for this community.
I believe they should stay. Reddit is the idea to see new content and we all appreciate that however for this subreddit (and the activity of rage comics for that matter), most of its glory days have been in the past. Though we love and appreciate new content at any given time, reposts and rage comics go hand in hand for the nostalgia of what this community is. I've added a REPOST flair so we can save the effort of having to incorporate in a title. For anyone who's got an issue with the reposts, welcome to the internet. It might not be the first time you see something but it won't surely be the last.
2) **Original Content vs Shitty Content*\*
I would be an absolute hypocrite if I say that I didn't want to see original content and me being a "reposter" I don't have that authority to make that decision. So in my opinion, I'm leaving that to the community. Despite a lot of reports coming from reposts, I want to change the rules around so the community can report the rage comics that are GENUINELY terrible (not terrible because it's held to a high standard but not being the type of rage comic we all enjoy).
Let me know what you think, I will still continue to post here and there but I just wanted to explain my side and to say an overall thank you to each and one of you. I appreciate all the nice things each and everyone of you have said and the messages I've gotten directly.
