ArchivedStickied postModerator of r/techsupportmacgyver

On August 7th, 2012, /u/StewartSpicer (now retired from Reddit entirely) created /r/techsupportmacgyver based on a joke over at /r/techsupportgore. I made the first post and was added as a moderator pretty much right away.

 

In a little under 3 years we've gone from 2 subscribers and 2 moderators to over 50,000 subscribers. I've talked with tech geeks I know IRL who have heard of this sub and didn't actually realize that I was one of the people who ran it. That really blows me away!

 

I personally moderate a few other communities here on Reddit. This has always been the easiest place for me to moderate. I credit a large part of that to the community being so awesome and relatively trouble-free.

 

The rest of the smooth operations on here are a result of the wonderful mod team who I want to specifically thank for keeping things running smoothly here:

 

 

The quality of this subreddit is a testament to our wonderful userbase and the work of the moderators. And that doesn't include me in any way. I haven't done shit because I haven't had to do shit. Problems are almost always handled way before I even find out about them.

 

Thank you everyone for the privilege of participating in such a wonderful community.

Instances of crazy fixes that actually ended up working. Or not working, I'm a description, not the cops.
