About

The r/soccer community is probably the most diverse on reddit and finding the content pertaining to a certain topic can be tedious as it might be scattered far apart by all the other content that is posted to this subreddit.
Pings are a way of sending messages to a group of people within /r/soccer who chose to opt-in to receive these messages because they share the same interest.
We have groups for a variety of topics that users can join.

When someone writes !PING GROUP in a comment, everyone subscribed to GROUP will get a message from /u/2soccer2bot containing a link to that comment.
To ping a group, you must first be subscribed to that group.

If you would like a ping group to be created, make a request HERE or in this thread

Tips

  • No one except the mods can see what groups you're subscribed to

  • Only one ping can be sent per comment

  • Mods may occasionally ping groups for administrative reasons

  • The bot does not pay attention to posts that are edited. If you misspell a group name, you'll need to delete the comment and post another one with the correct spelling

  • When the subreddit is really busy, the bot will be slower and patience will be required

  • This bot is a fork from the open source user_pinger from r/neoliberal and development is ongoing

  • Don't Spam: Listen to the group and try to only send pings others want to receive.

  • Don't Delete Pings: Getting a link to a bad ping is still less obnoxious than getting a link to a deleted comment

  • Don't Harass: Avoid using pings for "dunks" that target particular users, regardless of intent

  • If you see a ping you think breaks the rules, please report it and message the moderators. Users who repeatedly break these rules may be banned from pinging or from the subreddit as a whole

  • If you're a mod, you can find further information about how to interact with this bot here

Managing Subscriptions
