toolbox for reddit
Reddit's moderator tools are very spartan and sometimes cumbersome to use (Although recently progress has been made for the better). Toolbox is a browser extension that adds a ton of much needed features and functionality to reddit for moderators. Over the past three years of toolbox development 8,000 mods have installed it and use it in their daily modding activities.
Behavior counter to reddit's originally expressed ideals
"We want to democratize the traditional model by giving editorial control to the people who use the site, not those who run it."
"A bastion of free speech on the World Wide Web ... the digital form of political pamplets."
"today's headlines -- chosen by readers, not editors"
one of the most malevolent, cruel, coldhearted online communities you'll ever find. you think [slur]town was bad? That subreddit, if you pick up on the dog-whistles (and many don't even bother with that-- say want you want about Stormfront, at least it bans "n[slur]"), will reveal itself to you as Reddit's number one hub for the web's most hardened Nazis, Klansmen, Fascists, and Gamergaters.
Theory of Reddit is a mildly navel-gazing space for inquiring into what makes Reddit communities work and what we in a community can do to help make it better.
This subreddit should focus on data, issues, solutions, or strategies that could be reasonably addressed or implemented by users and moderators, not admins.
