How can software track [1] how many subscribers to subreddits, [2] if subreddit is private, [3] if submissions are restricted?

+0
−0

Master lists like 82 food subreddits and 128 tech subreddits don't indicate

  1. each's subscribers.

  2. if it's private. Sometimes moderators can make the sub private for several days, to clean it up.

  3. if the moderators restricted users to create posts.

Indubitably, I don't have time to check 200 subreddits every week. I'm thinking of copying and pasting all 200 subreddits in an Excel spreadsheet, then making one column each for 1-3 above. But how do I command Excel to check these?

  1. Can Excel accomplish this?

  2. If Excel can't accomplish this, what other software can?

I think that https://www.reddit.com/dev/api/ would be a great place to start. Try it out and come back on the Software Developers community to ask specific questions about issues encountered while consuming it. Alexei‭ about 1 month ago
