Hi all. Video creator and disenfranchised redditor here. Half discussion/half suggestions.

I've been a redditor for going on nine years. I made this account to separate my personal account with my videos. Like most redditors, I lurk more than I post. I often find content through the front-page, and by then it's usually too late to get involved in a conversation. When I do chime in and post something on reddit, I like to do so with original content as a way to give back to the community. It also helps me as a small creator by getting feedback, or even sometimes an audience.

About a month ago I posted a video that had done well on another subreddit to r/videos. It was doing okay, then, out of nowhere, I was banned from r/videos. I actually had no idea why until a 10% flair was assigned, and I was able to google it.

One of the things I'm most passionate about at the moment (even potentially doing a PhD on) is the dissemination of online video and social media content. Rather than spouting off a number of random, low effort comments on random posts to get my ratio up, I felt I'd stick to content I knew or was passionate about, and chime in where I had something to offer.

Except I couldn't find the comment box anywhere. I then realised the conversations about video I was getting excited about were, of course, on r/video — where I was now banned.

Right now, there's a video on the front page with 6000 upvotes — the video is well made, from an original creator, and overall something the reddit community enjoys. However, it comes from an account whose only purpose (based on the last year of post history) is promoting their own works on various subreddits. I'm glad to see that in this instance, the creator wasn't banned, but I am also a bit confused.

Seeing an original creator with their video on the frontpage now is wonderful, but representative of the lack of clear and uniform rules surrounding original creators and spam on reddit.

A few suggestions I think could help:

  • Including rules related to spam or minimum content ratios in the sidebar

  • Classifications of spam

Much like how an account is assessed for low effort posts, video content should be assessed in a simiar manner.

Is the uploader the original creator? Is the uploader trying to sell something? Is the quality of the content to a reasonable standard? Could the content spur on a discussion?

If after review, the video is deemed to be low quality, perhaps a strike system would work best, something along the lines of:

  • Strike 1: Warning

  • Strike 2: Light ban — new posts forbidden, commenting still allowed (non-permanent)

  • Strike 3: Full ban — no commenting, no posting (possibly permanent depending on context and number of strikes in the past)

The advantage that Reddit has over platforms like YouTube is that community curation is still at the forefront of the site's model; reddit isn't curated entirely by an algorithm, and the discussion that happens on reddit is usually much more engaging.

On top of this, Reddit's admins and mods have a much more direct and transparent relationship with the users over YouTube. I can't help but feel like the mods of huge subreddits like r/videos should try and take advantage of that.

I do understand it's difficult to police given the huge amount of content that must get posted daily on r/videos, and I agree that creators shouldn't rely on reddit to gain an audience, but I would love to see my two favourite social media platforms working together more cohesively.

Anyway, would be interested to hear your thoughts (mod team or otherwise). Sorry if this seems like a massive complaint; I'm not posting just to complain about my own account, it's just that video is one of the few things I'd like to talk about on reddit.

Hi!

The red banner on the redesign is uncomfortably bright when using night mode.

Would it be possible to address this, somehow?

I am attempting to post an OC video from YouTube.

Repeatedly getting an error stating "Your title does not meet the requirements for this community. See the rules for more details"

I have read, re-read, re-written the title probably 20 times, with no luck. Anyone know a solution here, or experienced anything similar?

I went to try to post a video from my channel the the video sub Reddit, and keeps telling me to select a flair. However it's black out, and I can't select anything from it.

I was reading through some post on this sub, and noticed a lot of people are banned. Would this be part of me being banned?

I am brand new to Reddit. I only have posted a few times since I started. I did read over some of the rules, and every sub rule I come across. I even made a few comments on other posts, and up votes things I like or agree with. So, I just I am a bit confused on the whole process if I did get banned...

I think, I am banned from r/videos. I never received a message about it or anything. The "Submit" button just doesn't appear anymore.

The only reason, I can think of, is that I had posted in one of the "karma gaining" subreddits a while ago. I was relatively new and was exploring different subreddits. And I naively assumed that if this subreddit exists than it's ok to post and comment in it. How was I supposed to know that some subreddits are "evil" and who ever posts there gets punished?

Anyway, I am SORRY. I have deleted all my posts and comments in it and I don't post there anymore. And honestly, one can't expect people know all the rules from right the start.

Moreover, I only received little Karma through posting there. I would have more than enough Karma to post in r/videos without it.

I sent a private message to the moderators about it about two week ago but it was ignored.

I am not a spammer, I don't promote anything. You can see it from my reddit history.

I would like to post in r/videos. Please help.

I've been trying to look for a cool music video i watched a few years back but can't really remember the title. It started with a clip of a girl in a pink dress playing piano, then a video of a woman singing was played over it. More clips of people playing musical instruments were added until it became a full on song. I'd appreciate it if anyone could share the link, it was a pretty neat video and i'd like to watch it again.

Hi, I made a post of a video which is an educational short about a global health concern which got removed after about 30 minutes - I believe because I mentioned an EPA meeting in the title. I asked for explanation and haven't heard back yet so I tried posting again without any mention of a government agency since the content doesn't involve politics, but now I can see that the post was shadow-removed within a few minutes since it isn't actually visible in the /new/ feed- Please can someone explain what's going on? I'm just trying to help spread awareness of a very serious health crisis and it feels weird that it's being blocked on these grounds.

Edit: Apparently I messed up even further by attempting to ask the responsible mod directly I was instantly banned from making submissions/comments to /r/videos. Please help.

Part 1:

http://goedhartvoordieren.nl/?page=r/videos_discussion/comments/8hr5xo/modmail_does_it_get_answered/


Sent a modmail today about a video submission that was auto-removed from r/videos/new

No response.

It looks like there are 29 mods with full permissions in r/videos , and rules say to message mods if submissions are auto-removed.

https://old.reddit.com/r/videos/about/moderators

It seems like the process of approving videos is broken.

Mods, block v.reddit. Its a terrible player! The videos 50% of the time never play, or take twice the video length to buffer before play. Any other player would have dropped off the planet by now. Reddit needs to know that v.reddit sucks. It should be blocked as a clear message it needs to be improved before its adopted by r/videos again.

If there's a specific reason that I've been banned I can accept that but it hasn't been pointed out to me. I've looked over my posts, reread the rules, and politely messaged the mods at least twice but still don't know why I was banned. I would just love some clarity, thank you

Deleted the video. Tried to re-submit today. Immediately removed by auto-mod. Send new email to modmail. No response.

So for some reason I can't post to /r/videos.

There is submit button in the sidebar and when I try to do it manually by adding /submit into the url after /r/videos it says I'm forbidden and that I'm not allowed to do that. Does anybody know why? I've never posted to /r/videos before.

I posted a link to a youtube vid and a 10% showed up next to it. It was NOT my video nor have I ever posted this youtubers stuff to reddit before. It was a random video that I thought was worth sharing. I've heard you get a 10% thing if you post to much of your own stuff (or someone else's) but that is clearly not going on here... what does the 10% really mean?
