Moderation Resources for the General Election

Tool Guide

Hi mods!

With the general election upon us, I wanted to check in to ensure you are aware of all the moderation resources available to you. They can be very useful during this time if you’re experiencing surges in traffic to your community.

First, we have the following mod resources available to you:

  • The Harassment Filter The Harassment Filter is an optional community safety setting that lets moderators automatically filter posts and comments that are likely to be considered harassing. The filter is powered by a Large Language Model (LLM) that’s trained on moderator actions and content removed by Reddit’s internal tools and enforcement teams.

  • Crowd Control is a safety setting that allows you to automatically collapse or filter comments and filter posts from people who aren’t trusted members within your community yet.

  • Ban Evasion Filter filter is an optional community safety setting that lets you automatically filter posts and comments from suspected subreddit ban evaders.

  • Modmail Harassment Filter you can think of this feature like a spam folder for messages that likely include harassing/abusive content.

The above four tools are the quickest way to help stabilize moderation in your community if you are seeing increased unwanted activity that violates your community rules or the Content Policy.

  • You can request temporary assistance from experienced moderators from the Mod Reserves if you are experiencing an influx of traffic.

  • Self-Serve Mod Reorder allows you to reorder inactive mods.

  • The Reports and Removals section of your Mod Insights provides you with information about removals in your community, including admin removals.

  • Using AutoModerator and the Contributor Quality Score can help filter potentially violating content, especially from those who are not trusted users in the community.

  • You can keep in touch with fellow mods and seek advice from more experienced moderators right here in r/ukmods but also in r/ModSupport, r/ModGuide, r/ModHelp, and r/Automoderator. If you need to reach out to admins about an issue you are experiencing while moderating your community you’re welcome to message me for additional support.

If you are interested in adding new mods, here are some resources that can help!

Next, we also have resources for reporting:

As always, please remember to uphold Reddit’s Content Policy, and feel free to reach out if you aren’t sure how to interpret a certain rule.

Thank you for the work you do to keep your communities safe. Please feel free to share this with any other moderators or communities––we want to be sure that this information is widely available. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to ask me anything.

I’d also encourage you to share any advice or tips that could be useful to other mods in the comments below!
