The US-based Mod Support Mod Support team aims to respond to requests within a day but there may be a delay if there is a high volume of requests.

For these specific support needs, please use these links:

  • Review of Safety team actions: use this link to submit your request if you reported posts or comments and disagree with a response you received stating the reported content doesn’t violate Reddit’s Content Policy.

You will receive a message in your inbox by May 10, 2024.

Q. How do you keep attendees safe?

We do several things to keep mods safe at our IRL events: 1) vet all RSVPs with our Safety team, 2) only provide event information like location, time, etc. to guests who were approved in the vetting process, 3) when communicating with the public, we describe events as Reddit gatherings and never indicate that guests are mods.

Any other questions? Just ping u/nofilter_coffee on chat!

Can't wait to see you there! 🧡

Hi everyone!

I've started a new subreddit called r/IndianWorkplace and I am looking for mods to help me out.

Here, people can discuss everything about their workplace, politics, HR stories, and refer people too (once mod approved).

I am also seeking suggestions on some rules that would be good to have to protect the subreddit as well.

Would prefer someone who is currently in the corporate as they would be able to relate to many nuances. Otherwise works as well.
Most of the communication would be based of Discord.

Thanks!

Announcement 🚨

Community moderators often have to remove posts that don’t match the vibe of their community or fail to follow the posting rules. That’s where Reddit’s Post Guidance comes in to save the day! With Post Guidance, mods spend less time checking rule-breaking posts and more time enjoying the fun parts of moderating. Think of Post Guidance as your invisible friend, catching posts and helping users fix them according to your post requirements before they even get posted.

See it in action here!

➡️ Ready to set up Post Guidance for your community? Let’s start by answering your top questions about this new Reddit super-tool.

1. Who is Post Guidance for?

Post Guidance is a feature that can be used by ANY community moderator on Reddit. Post Guidance will double-check a redditor's post before they actually post it to your community, to ensure the post follows your community rules. So, if someone is about to post something that doesn’t follow your posting requirements, this nifty feature will prevent them from hitting that ‘submit’ button. Post Guidance then kindly prompts that user to fix their post–and yes, you can customize the prompt! Pretty cool, right?

2. Why do I need Post Guidance?

If you have requirements a redditor should abide by when they go to post to your community, Post Guidance would be a very helpful addition. 

Some communities require each post to have a certain word in the headline. Other communities require posts of a certain character length. Post Guidance is a tool that can be set up for either of these cases.

In our early experiments, communities with Post Guidance enabled saw a 35% drop in Automod removals! This means more people are making more posts that follow the rules of those subreddits. People are happier when they find it easy to contribute to your community.

3. I’d love to set up Post Guidance, where do I start?

To set up Post Guidance, on your community homepage, navigate to Mod Tools > Automations. 

https://preview.redd.it/getting-started-with-post-guidance-v0-ar9ls43tzu1d1.png

4. What are some rules I could add to Post Guidance?

We see that Post Guidance is most effective in helping moderators when there are at least three Post Guidance automations set up. If you want help coming up with good rules for Post Guidance, check your Mod Insights page to see content that is most often reported. This will give you a look into content that should probably have not made it into your feed in the first place. 

Here are a few examples of Post Guidance automations:

Formatting Requirement
You should consider adding your formatting requirements to Post Guidance. For example, if you require each post to have a question mark, your post guidance might look like this:

https://preview.redd.it/getting-started-with-post-guidance-v0-eqaeab3xzu1d1.png

Word Requirement
You might consider adding a requirement that a post title (or body) has at least three words. This helps reduce Low-Quality posts in your community. After all, you may want high-quality contributions – not just one-word posts. Here is what your automation may look like. 

Feel free to copy the following to set up your automation!
missing (regex): \b\w+\b.*\b\w+\b.*\b\w+\b

https://preview.redd.it/getting-started-with-post-guidance-v0-f7vl5c500v1d1.png

Topic Management
Maybe you’re managing a community, but some topics are better for a different community. You could set up a Post Guidance feature that looks for those topics you don’t allow and reminds the user the topic isn’t allowed in your community but they can post in a different community.

🎉🇮🇳 Celebrating 3k Milestone of r/isThisAScamIndia! 🇮🇳🎉
🎉🇮🇳 Celebrating 3k Milestone of r/isThisAScamIndia! 🇮🇳🎉
✨ Subreddit Shoutout ✨

Dear Scam-Fighting Community,

We're thrilled to announce that our subreddit, r/isthisascamindia, has reached a significant milestone of 3000 members! This achievement wouldn't have been possible without each and every one of you actively participating, sharing your experiences, and helping to raise awareness about scams in India.

As we continue to grow, it's essential to ensure that our community remains a safe and informative space. With that in mind, we've implemented some generic rules to help maintain the quality of our discussions and protect our members:

Relevance: Posts must be directly related to scams, frauds, or deceptive practices encountered within India. Irrelevant content will be removed.

Be Respectful: Treat all users, including scammers, with respect. Personal attacks, hate speech, or harassment will not be tolerated.

No Personal Information: We do not encourage posting personal information. Please refrain from posting personal information of individuals involved in scams. This includes names, phone numbers, addresses, or any other identifying details.

No Witch Hunts: Do not post or encourage witch hunts against suspected scammers. Focus on sharing information and raising awareness rather than seeking vigilante justice.

Provide Evidence: When sharing your experience, provide as much evidence as possible, such as screenshots, emails, or recordings, to support your claims.

No Solicitation: Do not use the subreddit to promote or advertise products, services, or fundraising campaigns. This includes referral links or affiliate marketing schemes. We do allow self promotion of other subs, but it is completely at the discretion of moderators. Please use mod mail for such communications.

Be Cautious: While sharing your experiences, exercise caution and avoid revealing sensitive information that could compromise your safety or privacy.

No Spam or Low-effort Posts: Avoid spamming the subreddit with multiple similar posts or low-effort content. Quality contributions are encouraged.

Report Suspicious Activity: If you suspect any posts or comments violate the subreddit rules or Reddit's site-wide policies, report them to the moderators immediately.

Follow Reddit's Content Policy: All posts and comments must adhere to Reddit's Content Policy. Content that violates Reddit's rules will be removed, and users may be subject to disciplinary action.

We value your feedback and suggestions! Please feel free to share any ideas or improvements you'd like to see implemented in our subreddit. Your input helps us continue to evolve and create a better community for everyone.

🙏 Thank You for Your Support:
We want to express our sincere gratitude to each member of our community for your active participation, contributions, and dedication to fighting scams. Together, we can make a difference and help others avoid falling victim to deceptive practices.

🚀 Let's Grow Together:
Help us reach even more people by tagging r/IsThisAScamIndia in relevant discussions or by recommending our subreddit to those who might benefit from it. Your support is invaluable in spreading awareness and protecting others from scams.

Here's to 3000 members and many more to come! Thank you for being a part of our journey.

Chat Channels Coming This Week to a Community Near You! MOD
Chat Channels Coming This Week to a Community Near You!
Announcement 🚨

Good morning, good afternoon, and good day Mods!

TL;DR: As of this week, most mods in India with a safe for work community will now have access to a new feature called chat channels! We hope you all have fun with it. It’s currently only available on iOS and Android for the creation of the chat channel and moderation of it. All redditors can participate in a chat channel via desktop, iOS and Android. Our ask: try it out!!

Why Try Chat Channels?

Chat Channels help moderators and redditors talk about the things they care about, meet new friends, and get answers to their questions quickly, all in real-time. They are built so that moderators can easily manage content, define rules, and set expectations.

Chat Channels give moderators and redditors more options to connect with like-minded individuals without having to leave Reddit and make it easier for redditors to contribute to their favorite communities and topics. They also help communities grow, as we’ve seen during the pilot testing phase.

So whether your community is looking to chat using memes and emojis, discuss something more serious, find out the latest on the newest episode of your favorite show, have a moderator only chat, or anything in between, chat channels are a great way to foster conversation and community!

So what are Chat Channels?

Chat channels are moderator run spaces within Reddit communities where redditors (or even just moderators) can engage in real-time chat conversations.

We’ve been slowly ramping chat channels across Reddit and collecting feedback on how to improve the feature. So far, we saw success during our pilot phase in international countries like Brazil where communities like r/botecodoreddit and r/MusicaBR found the latest memes and music to connect over. In India, communities like r/IPL and found shared love over cricket and r/BollywoodMemes talked about the latest gossip and movies.

Screenshots of a Chat Channel in Action

Additionally in the UK we saw chat channels have success in entertainment subs like r/apprenticeuk as well as in premier league communities like r/BrightonHoveAlbion. In Germany, r/TrashTVGermany and r/VintedForumFavoriten were among the favorite chat channels.

During the pilot phase of chat channels, there were such a variety of successful chat channels created that we are now extending the reach of chat channels globally. That said, we are still building features for chat channels so there will be LOTS more to come! If you’re interested, we’ve got more details below on how to start one up in your community.

Here’s how to set it up (on iOS and Android only)

Step 1: Mod permissions

  1. Visit mod tools

  2. Select ‘Moderators’ under User Management

  3. Enter the username

  4. Select ‘Channel Management’ to allow a mod to create, edit, and delete chat channels

  5. Select ‘Channel Moderation’ to enable a moderator to manage chat channel settings, action on chat content, access mod notes, and ban and mute users.

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-h4yl6ding2sc1.png

Step 2: Create a chat channel

  1. Visit Mod tools (or select ‘Chats’ on the homepage and select ‘Create Chat Channel’)

  2. Select ‘Channel Management’

  3. Select ‘Create Channel’

  4. Name the channel and select public for your members to chat

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-h8q7smsrg2sc1.png

Step 3: Set up who can participate in your chat channel

  1. Select ‘Chats’ on the homepage and select a channel

  2. Tap on the channel name at the top of the screen

  3. Select ‘Manage channel’ and then ‘Participation Requirements’

  4. Select the member requirement level you’d like for your channel

    1. We recommend starting with an ‘Peak participation’ and adjusting as needed to test out the various control levels

In more detail: Sometimes, you may want your members to be more established or in good standing to participate in your channels. You can decide which set of your members with certain criteria can join and contribute to the discussion by selecting your channel name to view your channel’s settings. Select Participation Requirements, and choose from a list of requirements from ‘Open chat’ through to ‘heavily restricted.’

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-xwsujbpug2sc1.png

Step 4: Manage content and moderate

  1. Tap the back arrow to return to ‘Manage channel’ screen

  2. Select ‘Banned content’

  3. Complete desired content you’d like banned from your channel, control what media is allowed, and select link sharing options

  4. Select ‘Save’

In more detail: on the “banned content” settings page, moderators can block words, phrases and URLs from being used in their chat channel. This tool also supports standard Python regex syntax configurations.

In addition, moderators can turn off or on three content types that members can send inside their chat channel:

  • Images

  • Gifs

  • Stickers

The content type restriction will not apply to moderators.

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-jz92cfwyg2sc1.jpg

To pin a message, long press on a message you have sent and select "pin message". It will then show up at the top of the Chat Channel with a thumbtack icon. To unpin a message, long press on the pinned message and tap “unpin message.” Pinned messages can include gifs and images too.

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-4f3l7ar7h2sc1.png

To distinguish a message as a moderator, send a chat and then long-press on it, then tap distinguish as mod. This will designate a green shield next to your username.

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-5df7lohch2sc1.png

To approve or remove any message (both reported or unreported), you can long press on the message or reaction and select approve or remove from the action menu. When banning a redditor from a chat channel, mods can also remove their reactions and messages previously sent.

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-6s6gldweh2sc1.png

Also noting that reported messages will have a yellow flag next to them . For more information on chat channels and mod tools, we’ve built out Help Center Articles to answer questions that might come up.

Where can Chat Channels be found?

You can access a chat channel on a community’s homepage, within the chat tab, and the home feed. On the left is a pic of the chat tab and on the right is a picture of a community with a chat channel enabled (next to feed it says Chats).

https://preview.redd.it/chat-channels-coming-this-week-to-a-community-near-you-v0-7zuwofrhh2sc1.png

Best Practices

Chat Channels should be open, discoverable, welcoming, and make it easier for your members to contribute. Moderators should encourage these traits while keeping their chats moderated and ensure that phrases, words, and certain urls are prohibited to get there.

Below are some of the best practices that we’ve shared with early adopters of Chat Channels:

  • Share with your community!

    • Share with your community in a pinned post that chat channels. Let your members know that you’ll be sharing feedback directly with the Reddit Chat team, and encourage them to share any thoughts they have. We’d love to hear how your communities are responding to the features and what we’ll ship along the way!

  • Pin a welcome message or chat rules in the channel

    • Don't make it complicated, we recommend reiterating the rules while welcoming new chat channel members to the chat.

  • Start chatting: deciding topics for your channels

    • Every community communicates differently, and chat channels are a great way for your members to talk to each other in real-time and more in-depth on specific topics. Consider what themes come up frequently in your community where you think members would like to talk in more detail.

      • If you run a television community, consider a channel for live conversations at the time of the episode premiere

      • If you run a location-based community, consider a channel for breaking news, conversations on the latest business openings, or receiving updates on local politics

      • If you run a gaming community, consider setting up channels to discuss updates or finding other members to play games with

  • Start chatting: get the conversation going!

    • Start the conversation and set the tone by sending a message in your channel to get the chat going. Folks are usually more likely to start chatting when there is a prompt, question, or something to react to! Here are some examples:

      • Share a prompt about what you think will happen in an upcoming episode premiere

      • Send a message about your predictions for who would win a fight or tournament

      • Send a message with a question or advice you’d like to get some help on

      • Let your community know of any breaking news you saw or heard in your neighborhood

So that's a lot on chat channels! If you need more information please visit our help center page for more info and make sure to join r/RedditChatChannels where we post the latest updates. As always, have fun out there and let us know what you think in the comments below.


A new Harassment Filter and User Reporting type, plus a look back on safety tools
A new Harassment Filter and User Reporting type, plus a look back on safety tools
Announcement 🚨

Hey mods,

I’m u/enthusiastic-potato and I work on our safety product team. We’re here today to introduce some new safety features and tools requested by mods and to recap a few recent safety products we’ve released. These safety-focused mod tools and filters are designed to work together to help you manage and keep out the not-so-great things that can pop up in your subreddit(s).

What’s new:

  • Harassment filter - a new mod tool that automatically filters posts and comments that are likely to be considered harassing.

  • User details reporting - see a nasty username or profile banner? Now, you can now report a user’s profile based on those details (and more).

  • Safety guide - the safety page within mod tools is growing! And it can be a bit confusing. So we’re releasing a new Safety product guide to help navigate when to use a few of the tools available.

The Harassment Filter

The first feature we’re introducing is the new Harassment filter – powered by a large language model (LLM) that’s trained on mod actions and content removed by Reddit’s internal tools and enforcement teams.

The goal with this new feature is to help provide mods a more effective and efficient way to detect and protect their communities from harassment, which has been a top request from mods.

https://preview.redd.it/a-new-harassment-filter-and-user-reporting-type-plus-a-look-v0-1iuj7rijrxnc1.gif

Quick overview:

  • You can enable this feature within the Safety page in Mod Tools on desktop or mobile apps

  • Once you’ve set up the filter on reddit.com, it’ll manage posts and comments across all platforms—old Reddit, new Reddit, and the official Reddit apps. Filtered content will appear in mod queue

  • Allow lists (which will override any filtering) can be set up by inputting up to 15 words

  • “Test the filter” option - you can also experiment with the filter live within the page, to see how it works, via a test comment box

This feature will be available to all communities on desktop by end of day, and the mobile apps settings will follow soon in the coming weeks. We have more improvements planned for this feature in the future, including additional controls. We’re also considering how we could extend these capabilities for mod protection as well.

Check out more information on how to get started in the help center.

Big shoutout to the many mods and subreddits who participated in the beta! This feedback helped improve the performance of the filter and identify key features to incorporate into the launch.

User details reporting

The second new feature we’re sharing today is a new reporting option for profiles. We’ve heard consistent feedback - particularly from moderators - about the need for a more detailed user profile reporting option. With that, we’re releasing the ability to report specific details on a user’s profile, including whether they are in violation of our content policies.

  • Example: if you see a username with a word or phrase that you think is violating our content policy, you can now report that within the user’s profile.

Overall, you will now be able to report a user’s:

  • Username

  • Display name

  • Profile picture

  • Profile banner image

  • Bio description

To report a user with potentially policy-violating details:

  • On iOS, Android and reddit.com, go to a user’s profile

  • Tap the three dots “...” more actions menu at the top right of the profile, then select Report profile

    • On reddit.com, if they have a profile banner, the three dots “...” will be right underneath that image

  • Choose what you would like to report (Username, Display name, Avatar/profile image, Banner image, Account bio) and what rule it’s breaking

    • Note: if a profile doesn't include one of these, then the option to report will not show in the list

  • Select submit

Safety guide

The third update today is that we’re bringing more safety (content) into Reddit for Community, starting with a new quick start guide for mods less familiar with the different tools out there.

The guide offers a brief walkthrough of three impactful safety tools we recommend leveraging, especially if you’re new to moderation and have a rapidly growing subreddit: the Harassment Filter, Ban Evasion Filter, and Crowd Control.

You’ll start to see more safety product guidance and information pop up there, so keep an eye out for updates!

What about those other safety tools?

Some of you may be familiar with them, but we’ve heard that many mods are not. Let’s look back on some other safety tools we’ve recently released!

Over the last year, we’ve been leveraging our internal safety signals that help us detect bad actors, spam, ban evasion, etc. at scale to create new, simple, and configurable mod tools. Because sometimes something can be compliant with Reddit policy but not welcome within a specific subreddit.

  • Ban evasion filter - true to its name, this tool automatically filters posts and comments from suspected subreddit ban evaders. Subreddits using this tool have seen over 1.2 million pieces of content caught by suspected ban evaders since launch in May 2023.

  • Mature content filter - also true to its name, this tool uses automation to identify and filter media that is detected to be likely sexual or violent. Thus far, this filter has been able to detect and filter over 1.9 million pieces of sexual or violent content.

  • For potential spammers and suspicious users - we have the Contributor Quality Score (CQS), a new automod parameter that was established to identify users that might not have the best content intentions in mind. Communities have been seeing strong results when using CQS, including significant decreases in automoderator reversal rates (when switching over from karma limits).

On top of all the filters, we also recently updated the “Reports and Removals” mod insights page to provide more context around the safety filters you use.

If you’ve used any of these features, we’d also like to hear feedback you may have.

Safety and the community

Currently, an overwhelming majority of abuse-related enforcement on our platform is automated–meaning it is often removed before users see it– by internal admin-level tooling, automoderator, and the above tools. That being said, we know there’s still (a lot of) work to do, especially as ill-intentioned users develop different approaches and tactics.

So, there will be more to come: additional tools, reporting improvements, and new features to help keep your communities safe, for users and mods. This also includes improving our safety systems that work in the background (outputs of which can be read in the Safety Security reports) to catch and action bad things before you have to deal with them.

As always, let us know if you have any feedback or questions on the update.
