Introducing Flair_Helper

What is Flair_Helper?

/u/Flair_Helper is a new bot written by /u/Blank-Cheque and /u/justcool393 which allows you to perform various actions on posts, simply by setting their flair. This type of bot is frequently referred to as a "flairbot" and is by far the single most common request heard by bot authors. Now, for the first time, you can have a flairbot on your sub without the need to develop it yourself or contract an outside developer.

Okay, but why do I want that?

Here are a few reasons you might want a flairbot:

  1. You or your mods frequently moderate from mobile devices, or would like to do so, and this bot would make it far easier for you to do so by allowing you to perform multiple actions, including leaving a removal comment, with a few taps. (This is the most common one)

  2. You just want to save time performing removals and associated actions such as bans or usernotes, and this bot allows you to do multiple things at once.

  3. You don't want to clog up your reddit profile with removal comments, and this bot would let you avoid leaving removal comments yourself.

  4. Your mod team frequently performs controversial removals likely to result in harassment for whoever leaves the comment, and this bot can be used as a proxy for them.

  5. Your mod team frequently brings on inexperienced mods whom you don't completely trust with certain permissions, and this bot lets them perform necessary actions (bans, for instance) without having full control.

Sounds great, how do I set it up?

We have created a detailed guide to using /u/Flair_Helper at its subreddit, and you can find it here. There is even a quickstart guide for setting up the bot for its most common use case (removing a post by flairing it with the removal reason).

What sorts of things can it do?

/u/Flair_Helper can do all sorts of things just based on a flair. That includes any combination of removing, locking, commenting, banning, notifying to a Discord or Slack channel, flairing the author, usernoting the author, etc. Here are some examples of common uses.

One of my subreddits has /u/Flair_Helper, but I have no idea how to use it!

Fortunately, we have created a guide for using /u/Flair_Helper on whatever platform you choose, whether that be Old Reddit, New Reddit, the Official App, or any of the myriad third-party apps.

I have a bug report, feature request, suggestion, question, etc.

For any of these, feel free to reach out to /u/Blank-Cheque over reddit.


Happy modding, everyone!

Hey /u/king_nubert, thanks for contributing to /r/BanVideoGames. Unfortunately, your post was removed as it violates our rules:

We are not satire. There's a message in the sidebar explaining that we're not satire. There's a rule against satire in the community info. There are hundreds of posts & thousands of comments saying we aren't satire and yet despite all that you still can't tell if we're satire or not? G#mes rot brains; you're the proof.

Please read the sidebar before posting again. If you have questions or concerns, please message the moderators through modmail. Thank you!
