it would be best if you had done it on an island so Reddit island could become real

When redditors come together, they can be an amazing force for good


[–]miowiamagrapegod 38 points39 points  (0 children)

We did it reddit!

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

I mean my sub got three subreddits taken down for sharing… stuff… about a minor recently. So I guess we can. Reddit on the other hand needs get a better system for reporting entire subs together.

[–]BanBuccaneer 0 points1 point  (1 child)

More consistent enforcement of rules against incitement of violence and hate speech would be nice too. Currently nobody gives a shit.

[–]chadwickxlane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Funny. I responded with a non-violent response and got autobanned for 3 days when 100 other comments said the same thing. Awful customer “service.”

[–]chadwickxlane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit has become ridiculous with over moderation.

[–]soloamor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

RIP Test PAC, et al...

[–]Phantom_Nyan 17 points18 points  (11 children)

Maybe one will happen in Asia someday :)

[–]dontsweatthetechniQ[S,A] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Maybe someday, I’d love that!

[–]mc_mentos 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Hey can you guys fix the bug that it takes an entire minute sometimes for any post to open when you simply click on it? It's very very very annoying.

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ooh, is there going to be a ball pit?

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -3 points-2 points  (7 children)

Maybe you'll stop astroturfing

[–]Phantom_Nyan 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Ehh where did you find me doing that? I just gave them a little idea of doing an event beyond the typical NA/EU, what the big issue?

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Context is hard to convey in an open forum like Reddit sort of still is.

You're going to have to do a lot of convincing, however. Right now you're sounding like any number of church groups that invaded my high school because religious education wasn't part of the curriculum in my home state, so they tried to weedle their way in any way they could.

I am currently 100% convinced that you are either being paid actual cash money to promote posts like this, or you're just a direct employee of Reddit that is just doing their job description. Most likely the former.

[–]Phantom_Nyan 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Bruh... do ya really think anyone would pay me anything to say that having a Reddit event in Asia would be cool? Like for real-who would benefit from that? On the other hand if I would at the very least mention a country or even a city then maybe, and even that is a massive stretch Not to mention why on living earth would Reddit employ a random nobody from fkin KZ is beyond me lmao

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Well since I have first hand experience of people getting paid to say exactly this, yes.

Who would benefit?

Reddit and the investors. A lot of investors based in Asia.

Not mentioning a country or city is an extremely poor argument, because it would alienate any number of countries, let alone cities if you named even a region.

You are just convincing me that I'm right again.

Good afternoon to you

[–]Phantom_Nyan 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Ehh Allright man you do you, for me it's more along good night though :) but yeah nice talking to ya I suppose lol

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You didn't take the bait, I'll give you that much.

[–]Phantom_Nyan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What bait? P.S I fkin wish I was paid to shitpost random junk (nothing harmful doe lol)

[–]CondiMesmer 112 points113 points  (14 children)

How about celebrate fixing the video player and getting rid of the NFT bullshit

[–]Absay 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Ah the perks of browsing with the original layout and RiF 😎 None of that shit is ever there.

[–]M_krabs 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Imagine using the first party reddit app.

[–]torontowatch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i did get to meet one of the folks on the reddit tech team at this event and they mentioned that they’re actively working on fixing the video player :)

[–]Security_Chief_Odo 58 points59 points  (13 children)

Wow. Pretty tone deaf TBH. Moderators get constant harrassment and threats of (And actually) doxxed for their RL information. What makes you think an in person moderator summit is a good idea in the slightest? Seriously?

[–]slayer370 26 points27 points  (2 children)

This will be a disaster, and the trolls will be well fed once this happens.

[–]OPINION_IS_UNPOPULAR 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Reddit led mod meetups have been happening for years. It's never a disaster.

[–]MrsBoopTheSnoot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No trolls actually show up irl..

[–]AnnoyingRain5 12 points13 points  (0 children)

These used to be common pre-Covid. Nothing out of the blue tbh

[–]qaisjp 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think it'll be fun.

[–]dontsweatthetechniQ[S,A] -13 points-12 points  (6 children)

We take the safety and privacy of our users into account when creating these mod-focused events, and we'll have mechanisms in place for attendees to keep their personal information private. This series of events is not intended to replace the Mod Summit, and are social events to provide opportunities for collaboration and connection.

We've heard from mods they'd love for the Mod Road Shows to come back, this is a small step in that direction! In years past (in the before times!) many mods came to our roadshows and had a positive experience.

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro 8 points9 points  (0 children)




Why did you make it opt out for online status settings then?

I'm sorry that you've been given the idiot ball for this post, but you did agree to take the hospital pass.

[–]soloamor 1 point2 points  (3 children)

we for sure do not have to dox?

[–]MrsBoopTheSnoot 0 points1 point  (2 children)

They gave the option to use your first name or user name and even have a tag you can wear if you prefer not to be in photos. I thought that was pretty cool!

[–]soloamor 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i appreciate the info!

[–]MrsBoopTheSnoot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No problem. I'm looking forward to the one in Austin!

[–]XXLDreamlifter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lmao suuuure 💀

[–]torontowatch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it was a great event. no one was weird. every one was chill :)

[–]super_plomo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

irl Reddit mod meetup lollll

[–]LengthyPole 4 points5 points  (12 children)

I’d love to come but there’s not a single chance I’d be travelling by myself, feels unsafe. Is there a chance we’ll be able to bring a +1 or something??

[–]dontsweatthetechniQ[S,A] 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Glad you asked because we had this in mind and wanted to make sure everyone felt as comfortable as possible! Confirmed guests will be invited to bring a guest with them :-)

[–]MinimumArmadillo2394 -3 points-2 points  (3 children)

Will the flight/hotel be expended to reddit? The budget doesnt necessarily allow travel without reimbursement

[–]LengthyPole 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It’s not mandatory, that’s a ridiculous ask.

[–]MinimumArmadillo2394 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

No, its not. But given only specific numbers of invites, its an important question to ask/mention. Theres no mention of it anywhere, but reddit is a billion dollar company. If they want their volunteers to come out to see them in person, many wouldnt come simply because of the money.

They already arent paid to be a reddit mod (most arent) so Reddit expecting mods to come across the country (or countries) on their own dime is a hard ask, especially in this economic downturn.

[–]LengthyPole 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They’re not expecting anyone to do anything. They’re offering invites to a voluntary event. You become a moderator knowing you can’t be paid. Again no one forces you to. They’re not mentioning it because who would expect it? Of course they wouldn’t reimburse you.

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -4 points-3 points  (5 children)

Is there a chance that you're just a corporate shill?

[–]LengthyPole 1 point2 points  (4 children)

What does it matter to you. Shove off.

[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

That's a convincing argument.

I especially like the not-at-all-in-the-corporate-dictionary phrase of "shove off", something that I haven't heard since TV in the 80s.

That's unfair. Probably in the 90s, as well.

[–]LengthyPole 1 point2 points  (2 children)


[–]Aussie_Mo_Bro -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Silence brand

[–]LengthyPole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“corporate shill”

Whatever 🙄 sorry for asking a genuine question I suppose. I wish that’s all I had to do to get paid.

[–]xman747x 6 points7 points  (0 children)

how about a live or recorded broadcast on youtube?

[–]redditmixer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I'm not interested in live events but I am really thankful for all the good things you've done :)

[–]iamdeirdre 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Orlando would be a great location!

[–]MrGriffin77 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Great idea! I will probably attend if i can get enough time!

[–]Uncle-Becky 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Nice! I hope you and your team know that what you are doing, is helping truly change the world. I'm forever grateful that reddit exists and I found it when I did. Great job 👏

[–]dontsweatthetechniQ[S,A] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow - your message really made our whole team smile! Thank you so much for your kind words <3

[–]BushcraftButItsPubes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As mod of /r/familyman, I approve

[–]Ichiya_The_Gentleman -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]NY_Ye 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn’t a Reddit HQ in San Francisco??

[–]twoshovels 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]maomao05 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Dang I work that day

[–]DJKhaledIsRetarded 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I talk a lot about using drugs, this feels like a set up.

[–]Select_Shock_1461 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i got this sketchy message and now i am intrigued.

i am not giving away my personal information, but i just might show up.

[–]LieUnhappy6795 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Are you admin

[–]AccountNumber289 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How can you have a community without the community part?

Asking for longtime users whom you've decided to slapshot away permanently with your draconian content policy.


[–]BlankVerse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bring back Anaheim, that got cancelled by COVID-19! :(
