class asyncpraw.models.reddit.submission.SubmissionModeration(submission: asyncpraw.models.Submission)

Provide a set of functions pertaining to Submission moderation.

Example usage:

submission = await reddit.submission("8dmv8z", fetch=False)
await submission.mod.approve()
__init__(submission: asyncpraw.models.Submission)

Initialize a SubmissionModeration instance.

Parameters

submission – The submission to moderate.

await approve()

Approve a Comment or Submission.

Approving a comment or submission reverts a removal, resets the report counter, adds a green check mark indicator (only visible to other moderators) on the website view, and sets the approved_by attribute to the authenticated user.

Example usage:

# approve a comment:
comment = await reddit.comment("dkk4qjd", fetch=False)
await comment.mod.approve()
# approve a submission:
submission = await reddit.submission("5or86n", fetch=False)
await submission.mod.approve()
await contest_mode(state: bool = True)

Set contest mode for the comments of this submission.

Parameters

stateTrue enables contest mode and False disables (default: True).

Contest mode have the following effects:

  • The comment thread will default to being sorted randomly.

  • Replies to top-level comments will be hidden behind “[show replies]” buttons.

  • Scores will be hidden from non-moderators.

  • Scores accessed through the API (mobile apps, bots) will be obscured to “1” for non-moderators.

Example usage:

submission = await reddit.submission("5or86n", fetch=False)
await submission.mod.contest_mode(state=True)
await distinguish(how='yes', sticky=False)

Distinguish a Comment or Submission.

Parameters
  • how – One of "yes", "no", "admin", or "special". "yes" adds a moderator level distinguish. "no" removes any distinction. "admin" and "special" require special user privileges to use.

  • stickyComment is stickied if True, placing it at the top of the comment page regardless of score. If thing is not a top-level comment, this parameter is silently ignored (default False).

Example usage:

# distinguish and sticky a comment:
comment = await reddit.comment("dkk4qjd", fetch=False)
await comment.mod.distinguish(how="yes", sticky=True)
# undistinguish a submission:
submission = await reddit.submission("5or86n", fetch=False)
await submission.mod.distinguish(how="no")
