what is this?

In short: a website about reddit.com. A bit longer: Originally, I used the reddit API to compile top 10 lists of subreddits. But in the process it became apparent that this doesn't do the thousands of active reddits justice. Thus a new /reddits was born. There was also no way to organize multireddits (combining reddits, like so: reddit.com/r/pics+WTF). That's where /tags comes in. If you ever tried to search for something on reddit, you know why there is /search. /stalk lets you get a feel in what reddits a redditor is active in. With the /monitor you can find out when a phrase is mentioned in reddit's comments and submissions. More information on the features can be found on the help page.

Thanks to reddit for providing content and API. Thanks to the redditors for gathering all that content, and being an awesome community. Thanks to the giants on whose shoulders I stand.
