Proposed rule: A limit on the maximum number of subs one can own. (what number? 5? 10? 500?)

Reddit has mods who own hundreds of subs, which is 'kind of' okay when they're not significant. But with users comes the need to moderate, and everyone has a limit to the number of subs they can moderate effectively.

"Haven't seen the mods in months"

Not uncommon on some reddit subs.

Yeah, good point. I'll think about this one because I think that's a reasonable rule. I'm cool with people having their own corner of the site to make their own, I'm not cool with people registering 50 subs and pretending like they run the site. So that rule makes sense. We may end up doing that.

An infamous example:

https://www.reddit.com/user/davidreiss666/

MODERATOR OF r/LifeProTips r/food r/history r/GetMotivated r/bestof … and 166 more

He probably doesn't moderate any of them though. How could he manage 166 subs. That's criminal, that's almost satanic.

satanic

That's a separate issue. Just wanted to show the "so many subs he couldn't possibly moderate them" aspect of it.
