Because someone took advantage of an exploit in the reddit open source (that has since been fixed by us) and registered a bunch of subs, when they're not supposed to be able to register subs. Plus they obviously don't have the best motives, they even registered the /r/magnora7 subreddit for themselves, as well as simultaneously registering the nazi subreddit and the antifa subreddit, and many more highly-inflammatory subreddits, basically with the obvious purpose of trolling (they registered a 'trolling' subreddit as well as topmindsofreddit and topmindsofantiextremes).

This person obviously wants to take control and stir things up, so we have removed them and their subreddits. Our community doesn't need this person around poisoning the well, so we're taking measures to correct this. We don't need bad actors running large portions of this site, that's exactly how voat was taken in such a bad direction. Sorry for any trouble in the meantime while we get this issue sorted to ensure we have a good quality community going forward.

Thanks for the reply!

Also I would like to tell you that the page https://antiextremes.com/help/contentpolicy hasn't been done yet.

Oh okay. Thanks. How did you find that link? Where is the link posted? I'll make it point to something useful.

Should we get an official content policy together?

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (4 children)

In my mind, the welcome page says everything about the content policy that needs to be said: https://antiextremes.com/r/AntiExtremes/comments/3a/welcome_to_antiextremescom/

Basically the pyramid of debate is going to be core of all administration and moderation. People who always drag discussion down to lower levels are not welcome.

I honestly don't think it needs to be more complicated than that, but if you've got a good idea let me know.

Yeah that sounds good I just worry about the 404ing links this user found. One of these links to "content policy" is from the bottom of the new post/submit to form, but there are probably others. Will put this on my list, low priority for now I imagine.

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

Yes, I will redirect those links to something useful. I will probably make a brief content policy page I guess and link to it. I'll start working on that right now

[–]magnora7 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (1 child)

There the 404 stuff is all fixed, let me know if you find any more

[–]d3rr 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

nice, will do.

Open one of the banned subs. Click on Reddit Rules ;)

It points to /rules, but then you get redirected there

Ah thank you!

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

There I fixed it. :) Thanks again for the report and the details, much appreciated. Everything now links to /r/AntiExtremes/comments/63/antiextremescom_content_policy/
