Do my subreddits qualify for MeFi Projects? July 28, 2009 7:35 AM   Subscribe

MeFi Projects Question: Can I post links to some subsites I've created on reddit?

I've created a couple of subreddits, and wanted to see if it would be kosher to post links to them in MeFi Projects.

Thanks!

Not not be a total n00b here but what is a subreddit? [googling some...] Ah, if you mean something like this, then no, not really. We're looking for projects you've created and these seem to me, on first glance, to be more like micro-communities that share links within a reddit structure, is that about accurate?

Filling out a form is a project, now?

Some forms, yes.

Some of the work that goes into a subreddit includes creating a custom style sheet, a few people who know the site can even add or remove features to the site via the style sheet. For the redditchan project, the subreddit had the ability to post images in the comment thread and every poster would show up as 'anonymous' which I thought was kind of neat.

Maybe it would be more palatable to everyone here if you allowed them to change all those subsites to Comic Sans.

No human being would stack subreddits like this.

reenum, when someone asks you if you're a mod, you say "YES"!

Oh God I'm feeling dizzy. The world is flat, metafilter is edgy, the world is flat, metafilter is at the edge....

So can I post my tax returns to Projects? I used TurboTax.com!

Only very creative tax returns, and I'm not sure if you'd really want to publicize them.

I think it would be really neat if Metafilter had as little to do with Reddit as possible.
And I'm pretty sure Reddit is the online community equivalent of Comic Sans in the first place.

Why don't you link to your "subreddits" (whatever that actually means -- what's a reddit?) here so we can consider them as potential project postings and as examples of this sort of thing? If they're good and appropriate, people will say "Yes!" If they're not, you'll know directly.

This sort of thing is becoming a blurry line these days -- not everyone needs technical web chops to create things on the web. A subreddit does feel borderline (although I don't really know what's involved in creating and maintaining a subreddit). But say someone were to create a Ning social network around a particular topic of interest, and nurture it into a unique and important community. I'd consider that a 'creation' worthy of posting on Projects.
