Reddit Turns Its Users on Each Other for April Fool’s Day

From the site that once made everyone an admin for a day: Reddit will be distributing invites to Reddit Mold today, an anti-premium version of the site that lucky Redditors can then gift to other users.

So what (mis-)features will they get? We’re keeping that under wraps for now, but we will say that if you give someone reddit mold, you get to leave a gift note, which will appear in the right sidebar just like an ad. So one of the features will be that they get to look at whatever you wrote — all day long, on every page. (We should mention that everything goes back to normal on April 2, so you don’t have to worry about long-term implications.)

You can get a Reddit Mold “spore” by hanging out on Reddit today and convincing one of the admins to give it to you–but if you make a misstep, they might Mold your account instead. The surefire way to get a spore is by purchasing a Reddit Gold subscription. Muahaha! Reddit wins!
