Community forums like Reddit are where one can find news, ideas and opinions from all across the world. Any form of media, be it a meme or polarising news pieces that gains traction often ends up on Reddit’s user-created communities known as subreddits.
Subreddits help organise information posted to the platform according to the genre. Users can then view the content of their liking by subscribing to ones that they find interesting.
If you use Reddit frequently and want to change your username, unfortunately, Reddit does not allow that. Hence the only method to have a new identifier on the forum is to create a new account.
Thus, in this article, we list the steps you need to follow to copy all your subreddit subscriptions from one account to another.
Also, if you feel there is a subreddit missing on the platform that can add value, you can also create one. Here are some facts you need to be aware of before you attempt making one.
- Once created, users cannot modify the name or delete a subreddit.
- To create a subreddit, a Reddit account should be a minimum of 30 days old.
- Creating a subreddit requires users to have a certain amount of Karma — unspecified by the company.
