The .moderators class doesn't have the .userattrs class. .moderators is a child of .userattrs so you need a space between them.

Try this:

.userattrs .moderator {
    background: url(%%moderator-shield%%) no-repeat center / 100%;
    color: transparent;
    display: inline-block;
    position: relative;
    margin-bottom: -20px;
    width: 20px;
    height: 20px;
    top: -3px;
}

Change the width and height properties to make the shield bigger or smaller. And change the top: -3px to change the vertical positioning of the shield.

Paging u/kwwxis can you explain why?

kwwxis [M] -4 points

Sure. It mainly has to do with the phrasing and intention/subject choice of the post title.

The title of the post that got removed was "Lost an eye but not his smile!" The word "lost an eye" indicates an injury and is also the first part of the sentence. As indicated by the grammar, the intention of the post title was to indicate that the dog recovered from an injury making the injury the primary focus of the title.

As for this post, the word "blind" is being used as a quality of the horse. And while being blind is indeed an unfortunate state, but the title doesn't mention if it was the result of an injury (possibly born blind) putting the post into a gray area. But since "blind" is being used as an abjective, it makes the horses themselves and their companionship with each other the primary subject and focus of the title (whereas with the other post, the event of having "lost an eye" is the subject).

What can be considered "sad content" can be subjective, so as long as an injury/death/sickness is not explicitly stated and a negative quality is the not primary subject of the post, then there can be some leeway. Such as with this post an adjective describes the dog as "lost" but the main subject is the event of reuniting. And also with this post, the quality of having Down Syndrome is a focus but not the main focus, which is humanity.

So if the other post was titled "blind dog smiles" it would be alright? that's worse imo. this post literally makes it about the blind horse being pitied, and the other was a dog smiling. No thanks. " Rule 1 explictly states that mentioning injury in the post title isn't allowed." -mod on dog missing eye but not smiles

The dog in the other post isn't blind, it only has one eye missing. But regardless, if the dog actually was blind and the title was "blind dog smiles" then yes, it might be alright, it also depends on the context of the photo itself.

People need to be able to trust the standards that moderators set, and enforcing them unevenly erodes that trust. If this post is in violation of rule 1 (which it isn't, as explained in my previous comment) then these two posts would also be in violation: (post 1, post 2), and these two posts are the #1 and #3 all time posts on /r/aww/top. If we were to remove this post, then people would point out this contradiction. If we were to remove those two posts when they were still new and on top of /hot then it would have caused a shitstorm. We could also change the rule, but that would take time and much discussion.

Hello all, this post wasn't removed because the dog is missing an eye in and of itself, but instead because of the phrasing of the post title. Rule 1 explictly states that mentioning injury in the post title isn't allowed.

Edit: Also, posts removed by moderators can still be linked to directly, removing a post only removes it from the public post listing.

Edit: to add on to the questions, what data is being sent to SendBird

Edit edit: It appears to send your recently visited subreddits for sure...

edit edit edit: So.. looks like they maybe also get an access token and a refresh token with a SHITTON of permissions??

https://sendbird.reddit.com/api/v1/sendbird/me?redditSessionCookie=*******&accessToken=****&tokenType=bearer&expires=2017-11-30T23%3A36%3A59.491Z&expiresIn=3600&refreshToken=******&scope=account%20creddits%20edit%20flair%20history%20identity%20livemanage%20modconfig%20modcontributors%20modflair%20modlog%20modmail%20modothers%20modposts%20modself%20modwiki%20mysubreddits%20privatemessages%20read%20report%20save%20structuredstyles%20submit%20subscribe%20vote%20wikiedit%20wikiread

So.. looks like they maybe also get an access token and a refresh token with a SHITTON of permissions??

The IP address I get for pinging reddit.com is 151.101.1.140

Pinging sendbird.reddit.com directs to reddit.map.fastly.net [151.101.53.140]. Fastly looks like a CDN and 151.101.53.140 looks to be within a net range of 151.101.1.140 so it might be communicating with something operating on Reddit itself and not sendbird directly? I don't think Reddit would be stupid enough to give that much access to a third party.

Edit: To expand, sendbird.reddit.com is a CNAME that points to reddit.map.fastly.net (a CNAME record is basically a domain that redirects to another domain). And reddit in REDDIT.map.fastly.net is pretty generic hostname, so it likely directs to Reddit. So basically sendbird.reddit.com --> Fastly CDN ---> reddit.com

According to this assumption, since sendbird.reddit.com is Reddit-owned, it's probably a proxy that moderates more secure access (without giving sendbird an access token with a shitload of scopes) with sendbird's actual servers.

Edit 2: edited to be a bit more correct

Survilus 0 points

CNAME takes the IP of another DNS entry...

For example

A record reddit.com = 127.0.0.1

CNAME record www.reddit.com = reddit.com

CNAME record subdomain.reddit.com = www.reddit.com

all of these resolve to 127.0.0.1

subdomain.reddit.com => www.reddit.com => reddit.com = 127.0.0.1

kwwxis 2 points

Well, I did say "basically"... and a CNAME can point to any hostname. Not just within the same host. You can point a CNAME anywhere https://serverfault.com/a/65719 https://serverfault.com/a/783873

Like many have already said, I simply can't afford to pay extra for access to my favorite sites. Plus, as a computer programmer, the need for an open internet is vital for the dissemination of knowledge and progress. I often need to Google topics to learn more about new technologies and end up on a variety of sites beyond stack overflow and I and many others can't afford to have to pay to access all those sites.

What does the API look like for this?

Is there a POST parameter added to the /api/submit endpoint to indicate a crosspost? Or is there a separate API endpoint to perform a crosspost?

kwwxis 9 points

I believe it's /api/submit with kind set to crosspost and an additional crosspost_fullname parameter. Here's the code for crossposting in PRAW.

i’m going to need citations for that plan. you see, the short-term consequences of that particular plan is extremely dire and unnerving, with a significant possibility of a dissipation of trust in moderators which i must say is not massive in the first place resulting in a possible butterfly effect when the users all decide to shitpost 365.25 days a year and disregard the moderators entirely, resulting in a spread of the cancer from 782,685 victims to perhaps a larger population such as the millions of subscribers in /r/AskReddit, and then perhaps into the millions of lurking users of reddit. due to the nature of the internet content generation, this will eventually flow down to websites such as facebook and hence result in a global occurence of shitpost-induced cancer, from which there can be no recovery upon the reaching of critical mass. i mean that your 24 hours or so of shitposting may result in a disaster of catastrophical, if not apocalyptic, levels for internet users and the real world as a whole, made worse by the presence of the mobile game “pokemon go”, released by the developer Niantic in July 2016, which utilizes the player's mobile device's GPS ability to locate, capture, battle, and train Pokémon and hence may serve as an additional vector to this internet filthy disease we call as cancer, following a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body due to their nature to spread and to destroy the places they are in, just like this sub. i would recommend conducting a quaranine, which had successfully kept Ebola in certain areas of west africa instead of spreading across the globe, around the subreddit to prevent further loss of dignity and reduce the karma inflation which is bound to happen due to the karmawhoring disease which had been contracted by even some of your best individuals. however i am aware that this subreddit is not my area of sovereignty or divine power, as shown by the statement commonly said in this website “mods = gods” - and since i believe in the power of the humn mind hence that statement must be true -, i am limited to giving you this advice whilst i attempt to save who i can from the upcoming destruction. i fare the well, good mod, and i wish you good luck in your attempts upon the expiry of your so-called “24 hours” of the spread of this cancer since it is my sincere belief that by then all would have been lost, and you shall become the rulers of nothing and respected by none for what little your “users” had in you had long since expired.

Ah but you see Juxlos, shitposting is simply and ends to a mean, not the mean. The goal of this event is not to produce more shitposting but instead to produce synergy through shitposting. After this one day event, the subreddit will be like a grand phoenix rising from the ashes, purged of all the salty-ness gathered from the previous year. This event is just but an opportunity to increase synergy between subscribers and ensuring a more productive purge day the next year, and the year after that, and so on. Like the name of this event implies ("purge day"), it is simply a day each year for subscribers who enjoy shitposting to release their pent-up shitposting energy such that they can productively interact with subscribers who do not enjoy shitposting every other day of the year producing more synergy among our subscribers. We also hope that, through this event, we will produce a more shitpost-friendly community which will embrace the next purge day with open arms and the subcribers who temporarily left this time will be more inclined to stay the next time. And so, like I said, the subreddit will be like a phoenix rising from the ashes producing a subreddit relieved of its desire to shitpost ready to take on the next year with even more synergy than before! PS: something something synergy

i am aware, and i concede of the possible future benefits you had estimated by allowing for this madness - purge day, as you call - happen. however, mister kwwxis - i shall refer to you as kw, for the sake of simplicity and to aid the host of our virtual conversation, the website “reddit.com” by reducing the amount of computer bytes it shall take to store our replies in their hard drives - i do not believe that this future benefit which is relatively small compares favorably with that of the immediate and future possibilities of losses both on your subreddit and for the rest of the universe as follows. perhaps some moderator would even extend the event by another day, and another, and another, and yet another, and yet even another, resulting in an endless self-sustaining loop to continue shitpost and shitpost, for naught save for some imaginary internet-based numerical scoring referred to as “karma” in this website, in the end rendering the point on relieving stress moot and turning it more akin to a continuously burning fuel - such as a natural gas pit one may observe in Central Asia - with no opportunity to revert itself and yet it remains to spread its devastating fires of shitposting to other subreddits. perhaps it is me being unnecessarily afraid, and yet even from my normal places at a subreddit some refer to as a “sister” to here and yet i prefer the term “distant relative” of /r/pokemongo i can sense the signings of an incoming shitpost disaster such as none there has seen since a long, long time ago, perhaps in excess of 10,000,000 seconds prior to my current reply, which is made around 02:30 after the turn of Tuesday, the 31st day of the tenth month in the gregorian calendar referred to normally as “October”, in the year of 2017 according to standard dating adopted by the Catholic Church and most of the world with exceptions. i wish you the best with whatever you plan to do, and i pray that your plan works for the good of all mankind, pokemon, and memes since an extended period of high-intensity shitposting is very well recorded and known to result in a proportional deterioration of the quality exhibited by said memes, easily observable from the subreddits /r/funny and /r/me_irl. i do not wish to see a franchise i enjoy descend into the pits of hell due to the overuse of broken, ancient memes dating from a different epoch such as the mythical times of Q1 2017, and yet i observe that it is, despite you assuring me that it is not, kw. do not disappoint me or many of the 782,600 or so other subscribers you may not have taken an oath to satisfy upon your perhaps swearing as a moderator, when you did not agree to infinitely enforcing the absolute rules of the subreddit upon them all with complete disregard to your own self.

kwwxis 21 points

Wait a moment... are you saying that /r/funny is not funny? The moderators of /r/funny work very hard to ensure that all content on /r/funny is to the upmost degree of funny. I have never seen a post on /r/funny that I would consider not funny, not because I never visit /r/funny, but because I know I don't have to visit /r/funny to know that the posts on /r/funny are very funny because the moderators of /r/funny are very good moderators, they could even be said to be the best moderators on Reddit who moderate their subreddit very well and ensure a great quality of funny-ness. They say /r/funny has the best moderators. No subreddit on reddit has better moderators than /r/funny because /r/funny has very funny posts which shows how good the moderators of /r/funny are at making sure /r/funny has very funny posts. I mean, if we were to even entertain the possibility that /r/funny is not funny, then why would /r/funny have 18 million subcribers? I mean, sure, you could say that since /r/funny was a default subreddit (before admins got rid of defaults) they automatically get a lot of subscribers. But a subreddit got to be a default because the subreddit is a good subreddit, which means /r/funny is a good subreddit, which means /r/funny must have been very funny in order to have become a default, which means /r/funny is in fact funny. Now, you could say that the quality of /r/funny has deteriorated since its instatement as a default subreddit way back when, but if the quality of /r/funny deteriorated then wouldn't the subcribers of /r/funny unsubscribe from /r/funny?

Now, this goes to show that high-intensity shitposting does not necessarily cause the deterioration of quality exhibited by said memes because /r/funny is in fact funny which goes against your theory that increase of high-intensity shitposting is proportional to a deterioration of quality. And also, like the moderators of /r/funny, us moderators of /r/pokemon are also very good and wholesome moderators. Some of us on the /r/pokemon mod team are also default moderators and know very well how to be good moderators, so we are confident that purge day will always remain one day and that we will ensure quality. And I can ensure we will abide by this statement because us moderators of /r/pokemon are very good moderators since /r/funny is made up of default moderators which means default moderators must be very good moderators and the /r/pokemon mod team has quite a few default moderators which means the /r/pokemon mod team must be very good moderators. And very good moderators stick by their word, and I am a moderator of /r/pokemon which is made up of very good moderators, and as a very good moderator I stick by my word, and I have just said that we will always keep purge day to be a single day which means this shitposting event would never be extended by more than a day since very good moderators stick by their word and /r/pokemon is made up of very good moderators.

Also note that I have repeatedly and unnecessarily repeated the names of the subreddits /r/funny and /r/pokemon wasting bytes on the hard drives of the website "reddit.com" while you chosing to abbreviate my username to "kw" to preserve hard drive space. However, I thus call you out because I do not believe preserving hard drive space are your true intentions! You only used the abbreviation "kw" twice in your reply which means it did not really end up conserving that much hard drive space but instead you wanted to look good (and perhaps you chose to abbreviate my username because it is hard to remember?), if you had truly been concerned about hard drive space then you would not have made out such an unnecessarily long and wordy reply. But I am honest in my lack of concern about the hard drives of reddit.com which shows to my character of being a very good moderator because a very good moderator is transparent with their users no matter how the truth reflects on the mod team. So I can assure you that the mod team of /r/pokemon is a very good mod team that will always do its best to ensure quality and synergy in /r/pokemon and that I do indeed evenly enforce the rules of /r/pokemon with complete disregard to my own self despite what you might think about the moderators of /r/pokemon.

Now I'll return to the topic of the plan I laid out before. To refresh your mind, my plan was that even if shitposting were to blow up the subreddit in a spectacular show of fire, the satisfaction of it all will move the subscribers to joy and bring back the subreddit even better than before. And the comment to which I had replied to, you had stated that the number of subscribers /r/pokemon had was 782,687... but /r/pokemon now has 782,704 subscribers at this current time showing that this plan is in fact working now that this very post we are commenting has reached the number one spot on /r/all, and it so appears that Reddit is very satisified otherwise we would be losing subcribers rather than gaining. We also saw this trend the previous halloween in which we held this very same event: we experienced a huge spike in subscribers that day. And you can be sure I am not lying about this spike in subscribers due to my proven trustworthiness as a very good moderator as I have explained in the previous paragraphs. Now, if this plan were to not work, then why did we gain many subscribers last time and are currently gaining subscribers at this moment? Boom, here are your citations for the plan, you can't beat hard data.

What sort of commitment are you looking for, i.e., hours per week? Is technical knowledge required, or just a love of things that make you go AWW? Thanks very much.

kwwxis 3 points

We'd like to see people active for at least a couple hours a day. But it's fine if there's a day or two in which you can't be active. So around at least 8 to 10 hours per week. Technical knowledge is not required.
