Request news to your subreddit

Posted by Etaew (August 7, 2018).

SteamKiwi can post news for a Steam game directly to a subreddit.

Application Process:

  • 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

Limitations:

  • 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).
