On February 25th, Reddit, Inc. demodded /r/The_Donald's core moderator team, leaving us with far fewer resources than we needed to operate the subreddit.

This came as no surprise, since Reddit, Inc. had spent the last four years openly plotting to kill the largest forum in support of the President.

For context, our moderators did 42,567 manual mod actions in the month prior to the demoddings, dealing with user reports and patrolling the community to seek out trolls and content that may have violated Reddit's content policy - and many months that number was 2-4x higher, depending on the newscycle

In addition, our own bots would take up to 250,000 monthly automated actions on top of up to 150,000 from AutoModerator. And in a new initiative from mid January to late February when we were demodded, our moderators reviewed an additional 134,000 comments that our systems flagged as high risk, not included in the other bot statistics. Each comment was manually reviewed in context for anything that could be against Reddit's content policy, which resulted in approximately 2,500 of those comments being removed, erring on the side of caution every time.

This firmly placed us as the best moderated community on the whole site, but since Reddit, Inc.'s policy lead, Jessica Ashooh, is an employee of George Soros, /r/The_Donald had to go.


The Donald is the first Reddit community to successfully transition off of their platform, these are some of our stats so far.

Web Rankings

The Donald is up massively on both Alexa and SimilarWeb in the first month off Reddit. We're currently ranked in the top 1,800 in the US on Alexa, and top 19,000 worldwide. SimilarWeb ranks us at 2,665 in the US, and top 12,900 worldwide.

Reddit has started to drop rankings. After sitting at #18 worldwide for many months on Alexa, Reddit has now dropped to #19. On SimilarWeb, Reddit has dropped from 19th to 20th.


Virality

In our first month off Reddit, we experienced virality the likes of which we haven't seen in many years. A single post, with a mere 300 upvotes, brought in over 2.5 million visitors and over 10,000 new users.

The potential for The Donald is far greater than the potential we had on Reddit. Remember that even if we had been unquarantined, which simply wasn't a possibility as evidenced by our increased efforts in January 2020 that we largely haven't spoken about, we still wouldn't be allowed on Reddit's front page.


A huge success

The Donald's transition to Win is unequivocally a huge success, and our potential is unlimited.

Reddit is no longer a platform for discussion, nor is it a platform that you can trust - not only with the egregious election meddling we've seen with The Donald, but also their increasing protection of China following a $150,000,000 investment.

We're committed to making sure no Reddit communities face the same kind of treatment that The Donald did. If your community is at risk, send us an email: [email protected]

And finally, share TheDonald.win with all the Trump supporters in your life.
