Python PRAW – Checking whether a comment is distinguished or not in Reddit
  • Last Updated : 26 Jun, 2020

In Reddit, we can post a comment to any submission, we can also comment on a comment to create a thread of comments. A moderator of a subreddit can mark any comment as distinguished. Here we will see how to check whether a comment is distinguished or not using PRAW. We will be using the distinguished attribute of the Comment class to check whether a comment is distinguished or not.

Example 1 : Consider the following comment :

The ID of the comment is : fvib7aw

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

# importing the module
import praw
  
# initialize with appropriate values
client_id = ""
client_secret = ""
username = ""
password = ""
user_agent = ""
  
# creating an authorized reddit instance
reddit = praw.Reddit(client_id = client_id, 
                     client_secret = client_secret, 
                     username = username, 
                     password = password,
                     user_agent = user_agent) 
  
# the ID of the comment
comment_id = "fvib7aw"
  
# instantiating the Comment class
comment = reddit.comment(comment_id)
  
# fetching the distinguished attribute
distinguished = comment.distinguished 
    
if distinguished == None:
    print("The comment is not marked distinguished.")
else:
    print("The comment has been marked distinguished.")

chevron_right


Output :

The comment is not marked distinguished.

Example 2 : Consider the following comment:



The ID of the comment is : fv9qvgo

filter_none

edit
close

play_arrow

link
brightness_4
code

# importing the module
import praw
  
# initialize with appropriate values
client_id = ""
client_secret = ""
username = ""
password = ""
user_agent = ""
  
# creating an authorized reddit instance
reddit = praw.Reddit(client_id = client_id, 
                     client_secret = client_secret, 
                     username = username, 
                     password = password,
                     user_agent = user_agent) 
  
# the ID of the comment
comment_id = "fv9qvgo"
  
# instantiating the Comment class
comment = reddit.comment(comment_id)
  
# fetching the distinguished attribute
distinguished = comment.distinguished 
    
if distinguished == None:
    print("The comment is not marked distinguished.")
else:
    print("The comment has been marked distinguished.")

chevron_right


Output :

The comment is not marked distinguished.
