What is an admin?

  • The admins are site administrators, meaning they are employees of Reddit who help keep the site up and running. Admins will have a red [A] on their user profile and are also able to distinguish their comments with a red [A] when speaking officially.

  • The admins are generally hands-off when it comes to individual communities (subreddits), letting the moderators and the community decide how its run. However, the admins will enforce the rules of reddit on every subreddit. Be familiar with these rules. Failure to follow these rules may earn a user a site-wide ban, or in rare cases, result in the closing down of an entire community.
