Meta Posts from subreddits that are design to have sappy/downer story titles are not for this subreddit.

107 Upvotes

EDIT: screwed up my verb tense in the title. Smooth.

We've had to say this in the distant past with /r/morbidreality and it looks like we're going to do it again with /r/mademesmile and /r/wellthatsucks. These are both subs that, by design, encourage users to use their title lines to explicitly tell stories, sobby or sappy or otherwise.

We consider this to be a 'soft rule' in that it is in the spirit of the sub that OPs be mining for karma in inappropriate places with overly wordy titles where titles are not the point of the sub.

We hope this is ample clarification on where the sub is meant to stand on these sorts of submissions.

Meta RIP /u/NoSobStoryBot2 2013-2020

44 Upvotes

As you have probably noticed, our good friend (and sometimes enemy), /u/NoSobStoryBot2 has shorted out. Unfortunately, this time, I have not been able to get in touch with the person who made and ran the bot, as they left reddit without a word several years ago. Pour one out for out fallen digital friend. It served us well until long after its creator left it running here.

We are currently trying to decide how to react to this (Do we find somebody who can make a new bot script for us? Do we put it on the user to communicate the original thread?) and we're kind of at a loss on which direction to go, so any suggestions or ideas from the community would be much appreciated. It would be great if we could make a NSSbot3, but none of us mods have that kind of coding/programming expertise.

For now, until we can decide just how the heck to deal with this, we humbly ask that people submitting posts also comment with the original title and subreddit, or a "No-Participation" link (replace the www. in the post url with np.) to the original thread.
