So, you have taken upon the task of leading a sub(ection)of the Saidit community with your wisdom. No only are you wise in the gathering of your own truth (or other) sources, you have found yourself capable enough to deem sources of others worthy or unworthy and users allowed, restricted or banned/barred.

This is the latest version of the plaintext-Grimoire from the still active Mnemonic1 , it tells of it's journey from a "clickity-clack I'm really just a hack"-mod to the fully revered 'modgod', aka The Cyber-Aeon, aka Brahman's PDA and last and most a 'Saidit moderator'. As you can read, perhaps hear if Saidit has nice accessibility tags [If not, seek help and notify someone], this information is freely available2 and gives one enormous powers. Although mods are an important part of Saidit, they themselves have to take care of their sub(s). For this duty mods get a couple of tools, styling options and more. The beginning of the mod journey begins with these basics and therefor starts with it, some part are skipped over and will be revisited later.

0000 Naming your sub

The name of your sub can be personal (like a blog) or when tackling a broader theme/optic it might be good to choose a name that people who are looking for that stuff can recognise it instantly (See /s/Internet {shameless self shill}). Keep in mind the Capitalisation of letters for the URL is permanent. When musing about the name take some time to think of how you envision your sub going, this will help when you finally create it and filling out the other forms and representation.

0001 Creating your sub

It's as easy a filling in all the forms:

  • Title [is the title in the tab (html <title> tag)]

  • description [Is what people see in the sub-list, short summary of your sub]

  • sidebar [Can be a long description of the sub, is found right under the chat and above the moderation tools.]

  • submission text [A small text message people see pop up under the sub choice section when choosing your sub as sub to post the link/text to]

  • all the option till look and feel [self explanatory, later in the section about those, best left untouched unless you know what you're doing]

  • look and feel [Your header Around 170px in height and not larger than 1376px wide (You can use a wider one, but that is explained in 0010)]
