Sir. You may not be aware but 2 years ago you did a tinder post with a cunty becca. The image was reposted and gathered a lot of attention as you'd expect any quality post to realize.

Inquiring minds want to know. Did you smash.

Current repost

level 2
Original Poster44 points · 3 months ago

I saw the screenshot and posted it, and no I wouldn't smash that because odds are the person in the pic doesn't even know their picture is being used for that.

In other words, I bet it's fake

Well, I don't really do it anymore, but yea it's basically like a video game, find the right content that hasn't been posted and see if people of subreddit X like it enough to upvote it.

What all is involved with being a mod? Do you get to see who trolls/ruins subs?

level 2
Original Poster20 points · 4 months ago

Mods remove/approve posts & comments, answer modmail, change the CSS as needed, change the rules as needed, and inform the sub of the happenings of the subreddit, good or bad.

I guess mods do since they're supposed to remove rule breaking comments and posts.

level 3

Do mods get any payment?

level 4
Original Poster7 points · 2 months ago

No, no mods get any payment, or aren't supposed too.

BUT there was a mod a long time ago who had it on linkedin or something that she could "help push your post" it was /u/saydrah I think. IIRC she had that they modded a subreddit (/r/aww I think?) and could "help push your post to the front page" She got outsted and removed from the mod team once it was learned. She deleted her profile, and this all happened like 9~ years ago.

AFAIK nothing like that has came up since. I wouldn't be shocked if it came out that a mod has taken payments for w.e actions though.

Did you just get bored of Reddit?

level 2
Original Poster15 points · 3 months ago

Yea, there are times when I only go to a few subreddits, mostly the ones I mod since a few of them are video games.

The thing I do most on Reddit is lurk. I think that's why posting stuff is so easy, I have a pretty good understanding of what Reddit likes since I eat so much of it.

level 1

How do you have time to mod all these big subreddits? Do you have a day job?

level 2
Original Poster8 points · 3 months ago

Yea, I work full time. Modding doesn't require as much work as you'd think. A lot is done by autmod. (removes most spam, slurs, etc) Then there's the other mods on each subreddit, we all aren't always looking, but for the most part one of us is.

level 3

Okay, also could you explain to me how the upvoting and stuff work?

level 4
Original Poster3 points · 3 months ago

I don't know what you mean by "upvoting and stuff" could you clarify?

level 5

Just like, the voting system. What happens when I click the arrow up or if I click the arrow down.

level 6
Original Poster10 points · 3 months ago

Well, at the most basic thing, you're just adding another vote to the pile or removing one.

On some other levels, depending on what you have in preferences, if you vote on something it can "hide" the post so you don't see it again unless you go into your profile and look at the posts you've hidden.

On an even deeper level, depending on when you upvote/downvote your vote counts for more. For example, if you upvote a post within the first 10 minutes of a post it counts more than if you did it an hour after it was posted, and that counts more than if you voted after 5 hours, etc.

As for how upvotes=profile listed karma, that isn't anything that i've seen anyone break down.

Why did r/sports ban anyone who posted about AFL (Australian Football League)?

The mods of r/sports aren't very popular on r/AFL.

It's the 4th highest attended domestic prefessional league in the world.

Edit: An image of the conversation that occurred between two of the mods at the time highlighting the overeaction and power tripping.

level 6
Original Poster5 points · 3 months ago

The fact that he had no regards to and rules of any subreddit, reposted on purpose (mostly things I posted), and I believe he vote cheated.

Just makes my life more annoying because people associate his shitty behavior with me. If you know him you can tell him he's a liar and a cheat.

Why do you lock threads? Nobody cares if there are some uncivil comments

level 2
Original Poster6 points · 3 months ago

Because the rules have to be kept in check. And lots of people care. If they didn't care then I wouldn't see 10 replies in 2 minutes to a troll bait comment.

It's like the waiting for something. Everyone wants to get what they want as fast as they want, but they don't want everyone else to be on their playing field.

level 3

Why have rules about civility?

level 4
Original Poster8 points · 3 months ago

To try and make discussions better. If you present idea X and I reply just calling you a name, instead of actually talking about the idea then the thread is just going to become name calling. That's just one example of why using slurs and trolling can derail a thread.

One thing that I wish could be implemented is the culling of "pun threads" Just like how it would be annoying if everyone was calling eachother names, it's annoying when every top reply is a joke, or when every top reply is talking about the misspelling in the post title. Derailing threads sucks.

How did you do it?

I posted a lot of stuff. I went like 2 years where I had at least one post get 1000 upvotes every day (this was before the "inflation" of votes on posts too).

Did you find the majority of the content that you posted?

Yeah

how and where did you find so much and how did you know if it would be successful?

I would check periodically through out the day, 15 minutes here, another 30 there, etc. I used imgur, youtube, facebook, instagram, and some other smaller ones that I don't even remember. I knew they'd be successful because I would post to subs that I viewed and knew what content they liked because I had been on reddit long enough to figure it out.

level 1

Have you ever been offered money to promote/delete content? Seems to me some high-karma users (/u/GallowBoob comes to mind) are posting some very suspicious stuff. Also, when you Reddit that much it almost has to be your job?

level 2
Original Poster2 points · 3 months ago

Yea, people ask that from time to time. I always say no, I don't post stuff to make money. There's been stuff that I've posted that I'm sure looks like advertising, but I don't have some magic button to get to the front page so if anything I post makes it there then it's just because people wanted to upvote it.

I spent 30minutes posting stuff last night, it doesn't take much time when you know what you're doing.

Why power mod abuser like Gallowboob wasn't perma banned yet? there's a lot of shitty stuff he did in his reddit career that in normal circumstances an average user would be banned a lot of times for what he did. Even mods are "scared?" of him and rule in his favor even though normal mods have no business to appeal him.

level 2

He was perma banned once, his first account. He's been banned once(? maybe twice, not sure) on his current one, and what he went through was probably more strict than what a normal user would go through imo.

I'm not sure what you're referring too with what "he's done", if you wan to elaborate I might be able to help explain things. I don't think any mods are afraid of him, many of them dislike him and have banned him from their subreddits.
