/r/pics July 2017 Transparency Report
Hi everyone! July was a bit of a return to form for us. Our activity again reached normal levels and we did some things on our end to better the subreddit!
We staged a coup
Well, sorta. Thanks to some help from reddit admins (though not as much as we wished) and a higher moderator, we were able to finally enforce our standard internal rules on moderators who were very high on our modlist. Many moderators who were very inactive or in violation of our own policies were removed.
That all being said, we are very thankful for the service of all these moderators over the years. They are all welcome back on the team at any time.
We added new moderators
In addition to this, we added six new /r/pics moderators to assist us with day to day tasks! Please welcome:
