I'm one of the guys that runs reddit. What is happening is that our auto spam filter is marking it as spam. Since we get a lot of spam, we try to help you out. The spam filter is Bayesian, so it learns from your actions. By either approving the link or confirming the ban, you are training the filter. Over time it will get better and you'll have to do ...


Reddit FAQ is suggests this answer for new submission: Why don't my submissions show up on the New page? I don't know. They really should. Maybe your account has been blocked for some reason. In my experience I never had this problem. Did you check that your submission is available in your profile under submitted tab? If it is available ...


According to Wikipedia: Users gain one point of link karma when another user votes up their submission and lose a point when a user votes down their submission. Individual comments may also be voted up or down by other users and result in a user's comment karma. Users stop losing karma after their submission reaches 0. This is not the ...


Clearly this is a false positive of the spam detection algorithm. Nothing to fret. Just approve it manually. Reddit developers don't share the internals of the spam detection algorithm to prevent abuse. Hopefully with a couple of manual approvals of the user's stories, the spam detection should get better.


I found this help page for "what is submitter reddit next to my name". The [S] indicates that I'm the original poster, the one who started the page/link discussion, equivalent to bolding my name on Stack Exchange. A comment of V2Blast: In general, if you see an "S", "F", "M", "A", or "Δ" (delta), you can hover over it to see what it means. (In ...


Posts on reddit can get flagged by an automatic spam filter. This tends to happen pretty often to new users to a particular subreddit -- the spam filter is per-subreddit, so you may still be treated as a new user on /r/ImGoingToHellForThis even if you're a regular on another subreddit. That is the most common cause for post removal. It could have also ...


Unfortunately, it seems that this is impossible. From the FAQ: I want to change my username. Do I have to start a new account? Yes. Once a user account is created, the username cannot be edited. You can create a new user profile but cannot migrate karma or comment karma to the new username. Just in case, you might want to contact a ...


Most of these are markers to show you that the text has been deleted. There is nothing to see. There really isn't supposed to be a way to access it unless you can find a cache of the page before that text was deleted. So instead of showing: [deleted] the AskReddit subreddit just added in images to visually spice it up If you look into the ...


Sometimes it takes a while until it appears. Here is an example where a link posted 1 hour ago appears after a post from 6 minutes ago:


I was able to do this using Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES) in Chrome* by adding "self" as a "domain" filter. *Also works for Firefox, Safari, and Opera browsers


This will depend on the subreddit. If the subreddit doesn't state its guidelines or policy regarding posting your own content or reposts in its sidebar or its subreddit wiki/FAQ, it's best to ask the mods of the subreddit first (through the 'Message the Moderators' link in the sidebar). The Reddit FAQ has this to say about spam posts: What constitutes ...


From a technical standpoint of the site Reddit.com there is no way to do this. There may be RSS feed aggregators out there that have a similar interface, but Reddit cannot be used to view RSS feeds.


This is mostly handled by Facebook itself and there is not much you can do to fix this. What I would suggest is copying in the title and then putting some colon, and then add the link. For example: Check this post out:How do you share a Reddit link onto Facebook while preserving the original title, with as little friction as possible? ...


I do not believe that RES has such a function nor have I stumbled upon such an extension/app. I would suggest making a feature request in RES's subreddit which the authors actively read and check up on. /r/Enhancement


This might be of some use to you: http://redditenhancementsuite.com/


I can tell you that we do this for Stack Overflow users, if they can prove they own both accounts. Here's what I'd ask for, if someone wanted this done on SO (or any SE site): editing each account to include something unique that only you would know -- this part is important, to prove ownership. email the Reddit moderators with direct easy click URLs to ...


If you're looking for only the best quality posts to make it, you could point it at the feed of the "Top" filter for that subreddit. This would ensure that only the links that are getting up-voted make it to the twitter account. The downside here is that you're at the mercy of what reddit decides makes a "top" post, i.e. you can't specify "X upvotes" as a ...
