Please Stop Reposting
I'm going to start temporarily banning people for reposting highly reposted content on the subreddit. It's super annoying and no one likes when a subreddit gets spammed with the same posts back to back for weeks.
Also hope y'all are having a good day :p

Announcement r/CrazyFuckingVideos will be joining the blackout from June 12-14 to protest the proposed API changes which will end 3rd party apps.
As you can see from the title of this post It’s not related to our normal stuff that you see posted on the sub. For those who don’t know Reddit is making some pretty big changes to their API and how 3rd party apps access their API. For context you can read more about it here. The TDLR of this post is:
· 3rd party apps are going to be very expensive to run. Ad supported tiers are will be prohibited and using Apollo as an example would cost the devs of the app $2 million per month (source). This will ultimately put 3rd party apps in the grave. If you are using a 3rd party app you will no longer be able to use it.
· The NSFW API will be getting shut down so the only way to access NSFW content is through Reddit’s app. This means even if 3rd party apps do foot the bill They only get 40% of the content. This also means that bots and moderation practices that prevent, for example someone that comments on r/gonewild post rom commenting on r/teenagers selfie posts will break.
Why this matter to you
Many mods on Reddit use 3rd party apps to moderate because the tools on Reddit’s app are worthless. Contrary to popular belief that we all live in basements, most of us mods have day jobs and a lot of moderation happens during our lunch breaks or downtime in our real lives. We moderate because we care about the community. Forcing moderators to use the official app would probably slow down moderation and force more of the work to happen on the computer. This means your post/commnts will sit in the queue unseen longer. It will also take longer for a response in modmail and harmful toxic users will be more prominent and will remain rampant longer.
In discussions with other mods, these changes will probably cripple most NSFW content on the site. It will be extremely hard to keep child sexual abuse content and non-consensual intimate media off the platform with their mod tools practices crippled by the NSFW change. A lot of work has been put into this including parts of the NSFW community paying enterprise prices or access to private libraries that are meant to detect this kind of media.
Then, on a more basic level those who are using a 3rd party app will be forced to switch to Reddit’s official app to browse content as it will be unaffordable for 3rd party apps to maintain their apps.
The Open Letter & backout
The broader moderator community have been discussing this situation and we have released an open letter here.
Part of this initiative will be a subreddit blackout. We the mod team have discussed and have come into an agreement by joining this protest and CFV will blackout for 48 hours and maybe longer.
One large factor we need to take into account is you the community. In the end our goal is to make this a healthy community. We don't want this protest to be something where Mods are beating their chests and inconveniencing everyone because we don't like what's happening. We want this to be something that the community cares enough about that we can come together and say something with our actions collectively.
There are far larger communities than ours preparing to join this movement. 2500 communities have signed up for this in the last couple of days. The moderator team wants to join that and hopes that you will join us too. If you have questions please comment and we will respond to them!!
