Metareddit is a website about reddit.com and its hundreds of thousands of subreddits. It is created by Thomas Misera, a freelance software engineer and web developer. Fundamentally, Metareddit is where you explore and find thousands of subreddits, manage a collection of subreddits, and monitor all of Reddit's comments and submissions in real time for keywords that interest you.
Metareddit is not associated with reddit.com, all trademarks are the property of their owners.
The reddits tab shows you the subreddits with largest communities. By default, the site will display as many subreddits as possible in cloud view. The more subscribers, the bigger the font; the more recent the last submission, the darker the font. If you don't like the cloud view, you can also view the subreddits as a list sorted by subscriber number. When you click on a subreddit name, you will see its description (which was pulled directly from that subreddit's sidebar on reddit.com) and you will get its top 5 submissions if clicking on the plus. Subreddits with no submission or have less than 100 subscribers will not be listed.
Due to the time lag for updating the data, there is a small difference between the real data and the live number shown to you.
On metareddit, you can tag subreddits to list subreddits with common topics together. Tags can also be voted, tags with a positive score appear in /tags. Tags are distinguished from subreddits by with square brackets. Clicking a tag will show you the subreddits tagged. Tags are created and voted by metareddit users.
Some subreddits have custom logos in their header. This feature lets you browse the biggest subreddits by their logos.
Reddit's searching feature doesn't work very well as it does search only on the titles rather than the comments. Google shows more of Reddit's content but requires more typing. The search feature on metareddit acts similarly as Google does but only for reddit.com for both posts and comments. The search plugin is always on the right of the site.
As its name suggests, this feature will let you know if a Redditor is active by scanning their recent comments and submissions and showing his/her registration date, last active time, the subreddits he/she is most active in.
Other users can see your submissions, comments, and the subreddits you posted, but the list of subreddits you have subscribed is private. There is no convenient way to share it. The format feature of metareddit will help you get a nicely formatted list of your subscribed subreddits to share with other people.
