Reddit communities, or subreddits, are home to some of the most interesting and informative material on the internet. Because of how quickly news spreads on Reddit, if something major happens in the world, it seems as though Reddit is immediately aware. You can learn more about Reddit from our article. If you want to start your own Reddit community, you’ll need to know how to create and delete subreddits. Luckily, we got you covered.
How to create a subreddit?
If you can’t discover the correct subreddit for your post, it’s possible that you just need to start your own. You may establish a subreddit about any topic or aim from anywhere with a computer or mobile device.
How to create a subreddit on a desktop?
Go to Reddit in your browser. Click the house-shaped Home button along the top of the page to access the communities menu. Under My Communities, click the + Create Community button. On the Create a community page, fill out all of the blanks. This entails giving your community a name and type, as well as designating it an NSFW community if it permits adult content in postings. If you don’t know what you want your subreddit to be about, be sure to check out Reddit Recap 2021: The platform reveals top posts, best ama sessions, and more to get some ideas.
After “r/,” type the name you want to use for your subreddit in the Name field. It’s critical that your subreddit’s name is unique; if someone else has already named one with the same title, you’ll have to come up with something different. Click the bubble next to Public, Restricted, or Private, respectively, in the Community type section to set a subreddit’s privacy level. If you don’t want to allow members to submit mature material in your Adult community, do not select NSFW. After that, click Create Community to start your own subreddit.
How to create a subreddit on mobile?
Open the Reddit app on your device. Select Create a community from the menu button (≡) in the upper left corner. Under + Create a community at the bottom of the menu, then finish filling out all of the fields for your desired subreddit. After “r/,” type the name you want to use for your subreddit in the Community name area. Note that, because your subreddit’s name must be unique, if someone else has already set up a subreddit with your chosen moniker, you must select a new one.
Select the Community type and choose Public, Restricted, or Private, depending on the purpose of your subreddit. If you want to allow members to post mature material, touch the 18+ community slider. Tap the large blue Create community button at the bottom when ready.
How to delete a subreddit?
When you click the Create Community button, there is no turning back. You can’t reverse a subreddit’s creation after it’s been deployed, and the name will no longer be available. You can delete your Reddit history though. You may, however, make a subreddit private, and as a mod, you can then remove it from your communities list. This will hide the subreddit from your communities list even though you established it. This will also prevent anybody else from becoming a member of that community without first obtaining an invitation link.
How to set a subreddit to private?
Click the shield-shaped Mod Tools button on your subreddit to get there. Scroll down the left menu until you reach the Other category. Make sure you’re on the Community tab within Community settings. Scroll down to the Type of Community area and click the empty circle next to Private. This will make it so that only accepted users may view and contribute to this community. Click Save changes.
How to leave a subreddit as a mod?
Click View All Moderators in the Moderators box on the right side of your subreddit. Click the Leave as mod button at the top. You will receive one last warning notification before you leave your subreddit as a moderator. To quit being a mod, click Leave.
