Reddit Inc has recently adjusted The Donald's quarantine so that when visiting the subreddit via New Reddit, you must be logged in and you must have a verified email address.
Exceptions apply where your account has already opted in to the subreddit in the past before the verified email requirement went into effect.
We're also seeing that logged in users can access the subreddit like usual when on the official Reddit apps without email verification, but logged out users receive an error:
We had trouble loading the data. Please try again.
This is the most significant issue, as our mobile traffic is one of the subreddit's biggest sources, and Reddit Inc is masking the new email requirement as a server error. For now, we have updated our banner to inform users of what has happened to mitigate these issues.
It's likely that Reddit Inc will expand this new restriction to Old Reddit and Mobile Reddit.
There appears to be no noticeable drop in activity at this time, but we've seen many reports of users being unable to access the subreddit.
If you are encountering issues accessing the subreddit, please comment below which platform you use, and whether you browse logged in or logged out.
This is clearly nothing but another attempt at killing The Donald. We're confident that win has garnered enough signups and bookmarks that the vast majority of our community will know where to go if the day comes. Reddit Inc will then be to blame for unleashing the undeniable #1 most effective political community on the internet.
