Reddit Protest Updates: News about the apps being shut down and Reddit’s battles with mods


Reddit is trying to allay moderators’ fears about rules that allow users to displace them.

Moderators were tense after CEO Steve Huffman denounced the company could consider rules which allows users to vote down moderators, but based on a post seen by The edgesays a Reddit admin (employee) that no such tool exists and it’s not on the company’s roadmap.

In the post, the admin points out that only other Reddit admins can remove a top moderator from a community, but the company’s goal is to “empower communities to navigate these kinds of changes with more autonomy.” The admin says that to do this, it will “create solutions in collaboration with the moderator community.”

Reddit is already running an experiment to let users give feedback to mods, according to the admin.
