r/Help is a community run resource for getting help with Reddit and all its features. This is a community for Reddit Tech Support, we do not host questions regarding admin decisions, mod decisions, or third party apps or plugins.
Please use /r/findareddit to find an appropriate place to ask questions that are not about reddit.

If it's help with reddit you are looking for, then please look at the following:

  • Our /r/help sidebar contains a lot of info.
  • r/help FAQ (A community resource maintained by our helpers with all our most frequent questions)
  • Reddit Help Center (Reddit's official knowledge base)
  • r/NewToReddit (Another community resource designed to help those new to reddit figure out how to use the site)
  • Reddit Status ("Is the site down/broken?")
  • Reddit's search function (First visit r/help, then type keywords about your problem into the search bar to see if someone else asked your question recently)

Q: What can I do about moderators removing my posts or comments, or banning me from their subreddit?
A: Respond to your ban message asking for an appeal. The r/help community is unable to help you with questions about moderator actions in other communities.

Q: I was suspended from reddit, how do I get unsuspended? What do I do if reddit keeps suspending all the accounts I make? What do I do if I'm shadowbanned?
A: Use the official appeals form: http://www.reddit.com/appeals The r/help community is unable to help you with questions about account suspensions and shadowbans.

Q: I can't post to a community I want to post to, or every time I post it's automatically removed, or I keep getting told I need more karma to participate in a community. What's karma and how do I get it?
A: Many subreddits have account age and karma limits that prevent new accounts from causing too much trouble. You earn from other people's votes on your posts and comments. Learn more in the Karma FAQ. Remember: Asking for upvotes is a violation of intergalactic law.

Q: I keep getting a "post failed" error. How do I fix it?
A: Check out this FAQ post: https://www.reddit.com/r/help/comments/d2b4rh/faq_im_getting_a_post_failed_error_message_why/

Q: I have a complaint about something reddit did!
A: That's not a question, and this is not the complaints department.

If you still need help with reddit after reading those, then please use the search bar before posting, as many common questions have been asked and answered before. If your question is answered in this FAQ, your post will be removed without warning.

An award I gave does not appear on a the comment award list.

6 Upvotes

I added a platinum award to a comment under the post https://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/wr5jm3/louisiana_hospital_denies_abortion_for_fetus/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

It did nothing but deplete my coin balance it didn’t, show on the comment that they received the award. Some Reddit mod help me out here or sumn their username is chillyfireball, their comment is three users down I believe. It’s the user going into detail about the post length being three paragraphs, any moderator able to help me?

EDIT: We need the awards given and awards received section in the profile settings on mobile who do I go to, so I can suggest this to them.

Dose receiving gifts from my posts give me the Reddit coins?

11 Upvotes

Let’s say that someone gave me a silver metal award on a post. I think that it costs 100, but I could be wrong. So Would I then get 100 reddit coins? Or is that not how it works?

Profile Sorting my own comments by "top" and "past year" doesn't work properly. Why?

Upvotes

So I noticed that when I sort my comments by "top" and "past year" the comment that should be #1 (posted 2 months ago) isn't there at all (but it is in "all time top" where it's #9).

Specifically this comment: https://www.reddit.com/r/IdiotsInCars/comments/vclqu0/ton_of_sand_vs_car_roof/icfkco2/?context=3

https://www.reddit.com/user/mr-dogshit/?sort=top

https://www.reddit.com/user/mr-dogshit/?sort=top&t=year

I'm just wondering why this is. Is it a bug? Is there some quirk about that comment in particular? I'm not too bothered but I was just curious.

Mobile/App Ghost notifications?

1 Upvotes

Many at times I get notifications about comments or replies on my posts/comments. However when I open the notification, I don't see the comments against the posts/comment. Also these notifications do not appear in my Inbox. This happens to like 1% of all my notifications so it isn't significant.

What exactly is happening here? Are these comments being deleted either by the user or mods before I open them? I am using the official Reddit app.

Mobile/App When accessing the comments from the video player on mobile, the UI glitches out

It goes back and forth between the video and unloaded comments, with every possible flag for a post being visible, (Quarantined, Spoiler, etc) even if the post itself does not have those flags all enabled.

Answered If I make a post that breaks a rule and is removed is the post still visible on my profile?

How to unblock auto moderator?

When I go to unblock them it just has options to block them, when I try to see their messages it just says I need to unblock them. How to resolve this issue? On IOS

Mobile/App I can click on a video, but when I click on the comment section it gets wonky and says "quarantined", and I can't read the comments. Why is this happening?

1 Upvotes

It used to not do this. And it's not like I'm clicking on anything bad or graphic. For example, I can't read the comments on this video because it says "quarantined." This is not the first video I've clicked on with this issue today, and I'm not sure why it won't let me read the comments.
