Hello.

I didn't know where to post this so I thought I would just put it up as a new post. As the title states, just changing the banner slightly, instead of it being a capital "R", use a lower case "r" and with another forward slash in front. This is just purely because I use Reddit quite frequently and the normal convention on Reddit comments is with a forward slash in front and then a lower case "r".

So the end result would be "/r/anook".

Once again this is just my two cents on the matter. Also I have visited the subreddit and I am quite enjoying the nice theme of it. Especially the "upvotes and downvotes" being changed to the heart and skull.

On a side note, you should also put in your sidebar a recommendation to use the "Reddit Enhancement Suite" or "RES" for short. And if you don't know what that is, it is essentially a plug-in which allows easier access to Reddit, granting stuff like the almighty "infinite scroll", details on users will show up, etc etc. It is a plug-in for almost every internet browser except "Internet Explorer" but let's be honest here, who uses IE...?!

Here is the link to the enhancement suite: http://www.reddit.com/r/enhancement

Well that is pretty much it, once again loving what you did with the subreddit, I will definitely be going back to check it out every now and then.

Thanks.
Nathan

/r/ is a convention that's occurred more recently on reddit actually. Back before adding the first slash was a thing (and popularity of 4chan's style of annotation, like /v/) it was more common to leave it out. I'll have a play and see if anything looks generally better though. I went with the upper case R because it suits Anook's allcaps fonts better which are used throughout all their logos and branding.

I presume including RES in the sidebar is down to your belief people here might be discovering reddit for the first time? That makes sense I guess. I generally just work under the mindset that almost everyone on the internet in gaming communities has heard of or uses reddit. The younger crowd probably haven't.

For the record, I also moderate /r/gamernews, /r/hailcorporate, /r/dating_advice, /r/freehugsbf3(and other hugs subreddits) /r/battlefield, /r/vgstreams, /r/battlefront, /r/timesplitters and a bunch of other small niche subs. :)
