Reddit Moderators Strike
A group of several hundred volunteer Reddit moderators, who run several of the major subreddits, have gone on a two-day-strike. The strike comes after Reddit announced that they would monetize their work by selling API access to it.
“We understand that Reddit, like any company, must balance its financial obligations. However, we believe that the longevity and success of this platform rest on preserving the rich ecosystem that has developed around it.” Reddit moderators wrote in a collective letter posted to the Moderator Coordination subreddit. “We urge Reddit’s management to reconsider the recent API pricing change, finding a compromise that allows third-party app developers to continue contributing to this platform’s success.”
