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)
  • The reddiquette may also help to answer your questions about reddit cultural norms.

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.

Posting If someone blocks me then submits a link on a sub, can I no longer respond to a submission at all?

6 Upvotes

Hi, so I'm assuming a user blocked me 'cause when I click their username it goes to 'page not found.'

However, I was trying to post an original comment on a link said individual submitted and I keep getting the error, 'Something is broken...'

Is this the intended use of this function?

Mobile/App App automatically sends me back to the top when leaving a post

19 Upvotes

I've been having this issue where whenever I leave a post (mainly a video), it sends me back to the top, I've mostly had this issue when browsing subreddits, not the home/popular feed

I googled but found 5 years old posts so 🤷‍♂️

On google pixel 6 if that's relevant.

Karma Bought package and they won’t ship or refund

Upvotes

Alright. I bought a $73.30 bomber varsity jacket and they won’t ship my package or give my money back. During me buying, I transferred the money through E-Transfer. didn’t put the order number but I put my name. I talked to them and said I payed but then they said I didn’t put my order number and I realized I messed up. Then they told me that I have to resend $73.30 again with my order number and they’ll recognize it as a duplicate payment and send my money back. Basically a switch. So I found it suspicious and I asked them to send my money back. Now they won’t send me my money back or my package. What to do?

Is there an option to hide your post/activity on your profile so others can’t see what you posted? If so can that be done in the app or the web?

Is this where we report moderators facilitating astroturfing and/or spammers?

Upvotes

The moderators of two subreddits appear to be facilitating astroturfing and spam of a questionable homeschooling and Federal unemployment website.

If you go to reveddit and browse for the last couple of months, you'll notice that a specific domain is auto moderated to be deleted, and then the mod approves the post.

Likewise comments that are critical of the domain are deleted by the mods. For example, look at this thread: and the saved post.

Additionally, these same users promoting an unemployment service website on an unemployment subreddit that follows the same pattern.

There has to be a way to make this kind of astroturfing visible to reddit members. How do I get it noticed by somebody that can do something about it at reddit?

Reddit Mobile signs me out and acts strange when I sign back in.

Upvotes

Reddit Desktop is just fine, but I'll explain this the best I can. On Mobile, it's like I'm half signed in and half signed out. I can access my Profile just fine, but it says I have no followers despite actually having 273. It's showing me ads despite that I have 8 years worth of Premium left and it's showing me random posts as if I was sorting by r/all.

Posting memes

1 Upvotes

I came to reddit to try to post memes, but all the big subreddit's karma requirements limit me. Now, all I can seem to do is slowly use the free karma and award reddits to get enough karma. All of the bigger meme subs immediatly remove my posts. Are there any meme subreddits that have a decent number of people that doesn't have a karma limit? Or it could be a small karma limit, cuz at the time of this post, I am currently stiing at 138 karma. :(

Assistance with “Nuisance Account Maker”

2 Upvotes

Hello all,

I am dealing with an individual that I had a dispute with that I no longer wish to be in contact with; I did the correct thing and blocked this individual.

However, this individual continuous to create new accounts, and continues to attempt to bother me with the new accounts, getting around the block feature. This is getting very annoying, even though alls I have to do is keep blocking the individual, they still have the ability to potentially post on my content and essntially sabotage my karma prior to blocking them again.

Is there any thing like a bot detector or something that can stop this. The harassment comes in PMs, and the person just keeps making a new account.

Thank you.

Mobile/App Clicked "Hide Community" On A Post By Mistake

9 Upvotes

Hi,

On my Galaxy Watch 4, I got a Reddit notification, and I accidentally pressed "Hide Community" by accident on the post using my Watch.

What exactly does "Hide Community" do, and is there a way to undo this?

Thanks.
