    Seriously? NOBODY AT HOME AT REDDIT? How very frustrating!

  • When using targeted subreddits, is it possible to choose more than one? I've tried a comma and a space, but no luck. I can't start my ad in the subreddit I want because the impressions are too low. Since I need $5 to start, I am unable to reach the number of impressions necessary in just one subreddit.

    How to fix this problem?

    I DO see an ad in the subreddit I want to advertise in, so I know it's possible.

    This deck is blank to me. Only the first slide shows.

    Edit: my popup blocker was preventing the slideshow from showing. That's the first time that's happened.

  • How do I cancel my Reddit Ad? Why do you make this sooooo difficult? Shame on You! Your advertising would be much more valuable if our Ads only showed up during Search Results at Reddit! Like for me? If my Ad only showed up during Search Results for 'HOA' - Google Ads? HERE I COME! - Sam of: HOA1234 Dot Com

  • Just when Reddit ads started paying off for me they had to pull something like this. It was bound to happen at some point, every one sells out eventually. With an increase like this I don't see how anyone in their right mind would pay for advertising on here versus Google, FB, or Bing...or any other medium for that matter.
