Reddit protest updates: news on the apps shutting down and Reddit’s fights with mods

1 Min Read

Reddit is trying to calm moderator fears about rules that might let users push them out.

Moderators have been on edge after CEO Steve Huffman indicated the company might consider rules that would let users vote out moderators, but based on a message seen by The Verge, a Reddit admin (employee) says that no such tool exists and that is not on the company’s roadmap.

In the message, 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 so, it will “be coming up with solutions collaboratively with the moderator community.”

Reddit has already run one experiment to let users give feedback to mods, according to the admin.
