Redditters Are Fighting Reddit

Some subreddits are taking stand opposing new Reedit API pricing.

Major Reddit communities will go dark to protest threat to third-party apps

Some of Reddit’s biggest communities including r/videos, r/reactiongifs, r/earthporn, and r/lifeprotips are planning to set themselves to private on June 12th over new pricing for third-party app developers to access the site’s APIs. Setting a subreddit to private, aka “going dark,” will mean that the communities taking part will be inaccessible by the wider public while the planned 48-hour protest is taking place.
