In Reddit, a redditor is the term given to a user. A moderator is a redditor whose task is to moderate a subreddit. Here we will see how to check whether a redditor is a moderator of any subreddit or not. We will be using the is_mod attribute of the Redditor class to check whether a redditor is a moderator or not.

Example 1 : Consider the following redditor :

The user name of the redditor is : spez.




# 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 name of the redditor
redditor_name = "spez"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("Is " + redditor_name + " a moderator? : " +
      str(redditor.is_mod))

Output :

Is spez a moderator? : True

Example 2 : Consider the following redditor :

The user name of the redditor is : AutoModerator




# 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 name of the redditor
redditor_name = "AutoModerator"
  
# instantiating the Redditor class
redditor = reddit.redditor(redditor_name)
  
print("Is " + redditor_name + " an employee of Reddit? : " +
      str(redditor.is_mod))

Output :

Is AutoModerator a moderator? : True
