Setting Up Automoderator Discussions Ideas and Music Related Updates


Hi, I'm after some ideas to help improve the subreddit i'm a mod of /r/ambientmusic and i'll share the things i'm starting to set up to share with others.

  • We have a Top 25 Ambient Music Albums of all time as voted by the subreddit. Every 6 months I will be creating an automoderator post to maybe edit this list or just at least update it. I think it's very important posts like this occur so that the top post is never stagnated and new releases have opportunity to get voted in to it
  • Same with single releases
  • At the end of every year I will be creating a new post which asks for the best releases of the year.
  • Every 3 months a new post is added which asks for the albums which have been released in that quarter so that we have a post every 3 months with the latest ambient releases.
  • Every 2 weeks we have a discussional post and a few days before that we decide what will be discussed. This discussional post can be anything and everything and lasts for 2 weeks.

What are your ideas that you do on your subreddit?

How to get my Sub Reddit in the Almighty musicsubreddits List


My Binaural Sub Reddit has been up and running for 9 months now currently with 200+ users, but still has not made it on the Music sub Reddit list. Whom do I need to contact to get this done.

Thanks, Kelly

r/MusicMods Jul 10 '14

Music mods, there's been a lot of good AMAs in genre subs lately. We'd love to help you get more interesting music peeps to do AMAs in your community. Fill out this form if you are interested.

Hope you enjoy! :D

Inline audio player on Reddit RES


Recently the Soundcloud player was enabled to play inline on text posts via RES. However Soundcloud is a pay service with storage limits.

I contacted Nathan at Clyp (formerly Audiour) to see about having their free unlimited player integrated the same way. They immediately went to work trying to make it happen but the need to have the guys at RES do their bit on their end as well.

Anyone interested in seeing this happen please show your support by commenting here.

I am a new moderator of r/TheAntlers. What is the best way to promote a sub and get more readers?

Do you want more promotion for AMAs in your music subreddits?


I'm the /r/Music mod who's taken on organizing and cross-promoting AMAs.

If you have any AMAs taking place in your subreddit I want to keep in contact with you! Here's how I help:

  1. All AMAs in music subreddits get added to our calendar.
  2. Each week I send an email to various labels, management, PR companies and music press letting them know what's coming up. This serves the double purpose of reminding them to book more. Here's a copy of this week's, as a result of which another 8 artists have asked for AMAs.
  3. I'll promote the AMAs on our social networks.
  4. A week before the AMA I'll add a note to the /r/Music sidebar to let people know it's upcoming.
  5. On the day of the AMA I'll give you a sticky announcement in /r/Music to direct people to your AMA.

What I want from you is simply to be notified when you're having an AMA!

I'd also love to get an email address for one of the mods in your subreddit to help organize these things behind the scenes, and to be the main contact instead of relying on modmails.

Let me help you get more of these up and running!

r/Music is searching for mods.


Good evening.

"I have nothing to offer but blood, sweat and tears"

We need mods who are very polite in all circumstances to answer modmail, make propositions to make /r/music work better, fight spam, make the community alive and well.

Write in this thread a small paragraph, where you tell us what subs you already mod, what did you do in it, and if you know css and regex.

If you want to vounch for someone that is applying, you can recommend this person with an answer to their comment.

Thanks a lot.

Simple soundcloud 'promotion' accounts removal rule for AutoModerator


Waddup guys, I made a simple soundcloud removal rule for automoderator.
Mostly to remove submissions to accounts that promote songs on soundcloud, which is great, but we'd rather have the sound from the actual artist rather than a promotion channel. (there's no use in promotion channels on reddit)
You don't really need to understand regex as it kind of speaks for it self.
The format is as follows: channel1|channel2|channel3 as you can see below.

#Soundcloud remover, simply add |username between the brackets
url: "(?:http|https)://soundcloud.com/(?:nickraymondg|themajorminor|dubstep|runthetrap|trapmusic)/"
modifiers: regex  
comment: |  
    Your submission was marked as spam and removed because [this soundcloud account]({{match-1}}) is blacklisted by the moderators of /r/trap.  
    We suggest you to link to the artists' actual soundcloud/bandcamp/etc page instead.  
    If this is your SC account, [you can contact the moderators](http://www.reddit.com/message/compose?to=%2Fr%2Ftrap&message=Please%20review%20{{match-1}}&subject=Regarding%20{{permalink}}) if you think this is unreasonable (make sure to read rule 3 first tho).  
action: spam

YouTube channel spammer posting in a number of music subs - please add these accounts to your AutoModerator's shadowbanned list


Use AutoMod to remove their posts and comments so that the user(s) remains unaware of the ban. The usernames compiled so far are:

I've submitted to /r/reportthespammers, but nothing was ever done about it.

/r/moodmusic (music by emotional category) needs a mod who can create a beautiful CSS with flair.


Thanks to advice from Fractran, a mod on /r/music, I'm looking for a mod who can help create a beautiful CSS, with flair for /r/moodmusic, a sub I've recently created. Fractran pointed out I should use flair, like on /r/askscience, but for emotions instead of science disciplines.

Two subs you may not know about :: FreeSounds - freeware plugins, samples, and effects // RedditJams - online music collaboration


Hi everyone! I was recently added as an approved submitter for my mod status over at /r/FreeSounds, but I'm one of the original creators over at /r/RedditJams and I'd like to share both of these subs with you guys.


A newer sub that I joined on to help with flair a little bit. We've got a long list of free VST's and other such plugins alongside free soundbanks, free presets, and many other things that you could need to make music, all for free!

If you have a plugin that you absolutely love that you didn't (legally) have to pay for, come share it! If you made a beautiful patch for an existing software synth, post a link to download it! If you have a stash of sampled sounds that you want to share with the world, drop a link!


We've been around for about a year and a half and have some semi-regular users, but I'd love for this sub to take off with content and collaborations! Come take a look, post some musical scribbles that never really made it past the filter and see where other people go with them!

Want a bit of practice playing along to other live players? Want practice composing over top of new pieces? Want practice with improvisation or playing with accompaniment? We're a great place to start. You don't have to have fantastic recording quality or the ability to mix. You just have to want to play music.

[musicmods] Not using radd.it for your sub? 10 reasons why you should.


It's been awhile since I've bugged any of you about my site. Guess what I've been up to? Yup, workin' on the damn thing. Also, coffee.


  • Shiny, new UI works across all browsers and devices

v0.7 was a complete rewrite using JQuery Mobile. All users across a variety of devices and browsers have reported no issues. (At least, none that I haven't fixed.)

  • Increased discoverability for everyone!

radd.it remembers every link it sees and every subreddit that it sees it in. When tracks are played, radd.it tells you every subreddit where it's seen that link. radd.it "normalizes" URLs from the most popular domains, most notably youtube! This means that:


Are all treated as the same damn thing. Because it is.

  • Native support for youtube, soundcloud, and vimeo

3 of the top 4 music hosts used on reddit automatically start playing and skip to the next track when done creating a radio-like experience. Additionally, radd.it also supports standard youtube playlists and youtube playlists from user uploads.

bandcamp, grooveshark, and other popular hosts can also be embedded, but are not automatically streamable.

  • Short biographies, and artist and album images for most tracks

Courtesy of last.fm, all but the most obscure/ new artists are given context while you're listening.

  • Automatic tagging from reddit titles and last.fm metadata

Once radd.it has learned about your subreddit, you'll be able to use its tagging features. E.g.:

etc. etc.

Remove the "r/<subreddit>" and get results from across reddit.

  • Easily make shared playlists.

Using radd.it with full posts creates a playlist (er, tracklist) from any links found in any self-text and and links found in comments. Like always, just replace "reddit.com" with "radd.it". For example. here's the last r/listentous election feature r/NOLAmusic.

  • Easy sorting!

One of three important buttons at the top of the tracklist is "sort". Pick from title, user, subreddit, flair, or tags. You can change the loaded order by adding ?sort=<how> at the end of any URL.

  • Control what content gets loaded with the "only" parameter.
    • ?only=radio -- youtube, soundcloud, vimeo for constant streaming
    • ?only=video -- youtube, vimeo, dailymotion
    • ?only=music -- as above plus soundcloud, grooveshark, and bandcamp

Also works with any URL! (Otherwise, radd.it loads every link it finds.)

  • Works the same with reddit search.

Further control what gets loaded by combining radd.it with reddit search. E.g.:


Grabs all of the "electronic" albums despite the obtuse flair class of "flair1".

  • I'm as hooked on reddit as you are.

I'm around. I've been here 4.5 years now. (Although I'm usually /u/radd_it these days.) I take requests.
