A moderator, or a mod for short, are redditors who volunteer their time to help guide and create Reddit's many communities. Each Reddit community has its own focus, look, and rules, including what posts are on-topic there and how users are expected to behave.
Some of the things mods can do within their community are:
- Distinguish their posts or comments as official moderator submissions.
- Remove posts and comments from their community.
- Ban spammers or other redditors who may be breaking community rules from posting or commenting in their community.
- Add other redditors as moderators.
To see who the moderators of a community are, you can see a list in the right side-bar on the web. Or, on the mobile app, you can find the list of moderators under a community’s About tab.
Moderators don’t have any special powers outside of the community they moderate and are not Reddit employees. They’re free to run their communities as they choose, as long as they don’t break the rules outlined in Reddit’s Content Policy or Moderator Guidelines.
