ModeratorRelationship

class praw.models.reddit.subreddit.ModeratorRelationship(subreddit, relationship)

Provides methods to interact with a Subreddit’s moderators.

Moderators of a subreddit can be iterated through like so:

for moderator in reddit.subreddit("redditdev").moderator():
    print(moderator)
__call__(redditor=None)

Return a list of Redditors who are moderators.

Parameters

redditor – When provided, return a list containing at most one Redditor instance. This is useful to confirm if a relationship exists, or to fetch the metadata associated with a particular relationship (default: None).

Note

Unlike other relationship callables, this relationship is not paginated. Thus it simply returns the full list, rather than an iterator for the results.

To be used like:

moderators = reddit.subreddit("nameofsub").moderator()

For example, to list the moderators along with their permissions try:

for moderator in reddit.subreddit("SUBREDDIT").moderator():
    print(f'{moderator}: {moderator.mod_permissions}')
__init__(subreddit, relationship)

Create a SubredditRelationship instance.

Parameters
  • subreddit – The subreddit for the relationship.

  • relationship – The name of the relationship.

add(redditor, permissions=None, **other_settings)

Add or invite redditor to be a moderator of the subreddit.

Parameters
  • redditor – A redditor name (e.g., "spez") or Redditor instance.

  • permissions – When provided (not None), permissions should be a list of strings specifying which subset of permissions to grant. An empty list [] indicates no permissions, and when not provided None, indicates full permissions.

An invite will be sent unless the user making this call is an admin user.

For example, to invite "spez" with "posts" and "mail" permissions to r/test, try:

reddit.subreddit("test").moderator.add("spez", ["posts", "mail"])
invite(redditor, permissions=None, **other_settings)

Invite redditor to be a moderator of the subreddit.

Parameters
  • redditor – A redditor name (e.g., "spez") or Redditor instance.

  • permissions – When provided (not None), permissions should be a list of strings specifying which subset of permissions to grant. An empty list [] indicates no permissions, and when not provided None, indicates full permissions.

For example, to invite "spez" with posts and mail permissions to r/test, try:

reddit.subreddit("test").moderator.invite("spez", ["posts", "mail"])
invited(redditor=None, fetch_all=False, **generator_kwargs)

Return a ListingGenerator for Redditors invited to be moderators.

Parameters
  • redditor – When provided, return a list containing at most one Redditor instance. This is useful to confirm if a relationship exists, or to fetch the metadata associated with a particular relationship (default: None).

  • fetch_all

    If True, all invited moderators are fetched. (default: False)

    Note

    If True, requests will be made until all invited moderators are fetched.

Additional keyword arguments are passed in the initialization of ListingGenerator.

Note

Unlike other usages of ListingGenerator, limit has no effect in the quantity returned. This endpoint always returns moderators in batches of 25 at a time regardless of what limit is set to.

Usage:

for invited_mod in reddit.subreddit("NAME").moderator.invited():
    print(invited_mod)
leave()

Abdicate the moderator position (use with care).

For example:

reddit.subreddit("subredditname").moderator.leave()
remove(redditor)

Remove redditor from this relationship.

Parameters

redditor – A redditor name (e.g., "spez") or Redditor instance.

remove_invite(redditor)

Remove the moderator invite for redditor.

Parameters

redditor – A redditor name (e.g., "spez") or Redditor instance.

For example:

reddit.subreddit("subredditname").moderator.remove_invite("spez")
update(redditor, permissions=None)

Update the moderator permissions for redditor.

Parameters
  • redditor – A redditor name (e.g., "spez") or Redditor instance.

  • permissions – When provided (not None), permissions should be a list of strings specifying which subset of permissions to grant. An empty list [] indicates no permissions, and when not provided, None, indicates full permissions.

For example, to add all permissions to the moderator, try:

subreddit.moderator.update("spez")

To remove all permissions from the moderator, try:

subreddit.moderator.update("spez", [])
update_invite(redditor, permissions=None)

Update the moderator invite permissions for redditor.
