How to Tell If You Are Banned From a Reddit

Reddit is a social news website where users share content and comments on broad topic forums (known as subreddits). Inappropriate conduct will likely result in being banned from the particular subreddit on which the ban applies, but it could also lead to an account suspension or being permanently banned from the site. Ban evasion is when a user creates another account to continue engaging in a banned activity, such as spamming, cheating (in games), fraudulent activity, or even taking over someone else's account.

One of the most common ways to get banned from Reddit is by posting spam or off-topic links on several different subreddits at the same time. Using a VPN to create a new Reddit account can also trigger Reddit's spam filters and cause a shadow ban.

If you are banned from a specific subreddit, it's easy to tell by visiting the page on which the post was made in a separate browser opened in incognito mode. If the post does not show up, then it's a sure sign that you've been shadowbanned from that subreddit.

Other reasons for being banned from a subreddit include a long history of off-topic posts, using the wrong subreddit to promote a post or service, or harassing other users in that subreddit. Reddit has taken a strong stand against harassment over the past year, and even a single incident of it can cause an account to be suspended or shadowbanned. Reddit can remove a ban if the user apologizes and commits to not violating their terms of service again.
