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 there, it ...

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 having my name highlighted 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. ...

Use the shortlink - That makes FB post like this -

Install the Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES) browser extension, then in Settings (gear icon at the side of Reddit preferences link) » Account » Username Hider » set to 'On'.

There is unfortunately no in house option from Reddit itself, nor are there any 3rd party apps that allow this. However, using the Reddit API, you could use: http://www.reddit.com/user/karmanaut/overview.json or to return in XML format: http://www.reddit.com/user/karmanaut/overview.xml Of course you can fetch just your comments or your submitted links: →...

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 ...

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 subreddit ...

I just ran into this same issue and solved it; based on your screenshot I think my solution will be applicable to you as well: You have to write a title to your post, then the "post" button will be enabled. :)

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 ...

I was able to do this using Reddit Enhancement Suite (RES) in Chrome* by adding "self" as a "domain" filter. Go to https://www.reddit.com/#res:settings/filteReddit, add the keyword and press save on the top-right corner: *Also works for Firefox, Safari, and Opera browsers

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:

This is because of Reddit's Vote Fuzzing. The upvotes and downvotes shown are not the actual amount of votes. From the Reddit FAQ: How is a submission's score determined? A submission's score is simply the number of upvotes minus the number of downvotes. If five users like the submission and three users don't it will have a score of 2. Please ...

Those feeds were down for a week. Now working fine. I didn't find any background info about this downtime in Imgur Blog under tag #Engineering. There seems to be only funny GIFs and images.

The short answer: there is no way of knowing a sub's posting rules, unless they have explicitly listed them somewhere. Most rules, such as what can be posted and minimum karma/age requirements, are managed by a tool called AutoModerator. This is a script that checks posts after they are posted, which is why you'll get an automated message after rather than ...

It's probably because of removed comment(s). Among possible reasons are: removal by Reddit's site-wide automated spam filters, or if a user is shadowbanned in Reddit. A shadowban is the tool we currently use to ban people when they are caught breaking a rule. It causes their submitted content and user profile page to be visible only to themselves while ...

Install Reddit Enhancement Suite browser extension. Go to filteReddit in settings (direct link) and add a keyword youtube.com under "domains". Remember to press "save options" on the top right corner. You can add an unlimited number of additional domains — v.redd.it, youtube.com and twitch.tv alone should hide over 90% of video submissions.

According to the linked answer, if you can avoid self posts in Enhancement Suite by using domain self, you can avoid everything which is not self by using a regular expression /^(?!(self)$)/i This tells RES to hide everything but self posts.

I just found out that +nocss isn't a function itself but a subreddit on it's own. By using a + in the URL it is possible to browse the contents of multiple subreddits on the same page (explains the "multi" title). This causes the site to use the default reddit theme. Since comment sections of posts are tied to a specific subreddit it's not possible to ...

In Comment Threads In any reddit comment thread, you have the option to change your comment sorting options via a drop-down menu immediately under the 'top X comments' header. Here's a screenshot from /r/worldnews with RES enabled, where I've enabled the 'sorted by' drop-down menu: Simply click the down arrow next to 'sorted by: option' to view the drop-...

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? (http://www.reddit....

It's not possible. IFTTT doesn't support quora (but it does support acting on a trigger for a new post in sub-reddit). It seems that Quora boards are discontinued: Links such as you shared that are under Boards-on-Quora now redirects to Boards-discontinued-Quora-feature. https://www.quora.com/topic/Boards-discontinued-Quora-feature

Unfortunately, reddit doesn't offer many sorting options. You are forced to use their algorithm of what is and is not considered "relevant." The number of comments on a post is a factor in the algorithms for hot and rising, but that's it. The only way to achieve what you are after is via a third-party service, and I am not aware of any designed for that ...

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.

I would recommend the Buffer plugin. It is a plugin designed to help you stuff all of your social media posts on the Buffer app and then send them out at pre-selected times or just buffer them for later- so you don't tweet eightTEEN things at 4am. The link to Buffer on Reddit shows up on the same bar as the other Reddit interaction links: It will generate ...
