Request news to your subreddit
Posted by Etaew (August 7, 2018).
SteamKiwi can post news for a Steam game directly to a subreddit.
- Be a moderator of the subreddit you wish to apply on behalf of
- Send /u/etaew a message on reddit stating the game and the linking to the subreddit
- Etaew will review the message, check that the user that sent it is a moderator of that subreddit, check the game doesn't already have a subreddit assigned and then allow news to be sent to the subreddit
Stopping the Bot:
- Be a moderator of the subreddit you wish to stop the post posting to
- Send /u/etaew a message on reddit asking for it to stop
- Only one subreddit can be added per game
- Only news created after an application has been approved will be submitted
- News is processed for every game about once every 24 hours
The SteamKiwi bot will post a direct link to the news article on SteamKiwi, which does it's best to parse the custom BBCode that Steam uses, as well as provides a direct link to the source.
The SteamKiwi bot will comment on the linked post with it's best attempt at a plain text version of the article (depending on length).
