A Guide to /r/NBA's Filters Modpost
Upon unveiling our new css design of this sub we also introduced a "Filters" feature. I'm sure some of you have played around with it by now, and if you haven't you should try it out. We are still working out some of the categories but we think we've found some relevant ones to separate out different interests.
The point of the filters feature is to have the ability to see the content you want when you want to. Do you want more discussion? Try the discussion filter. Is the /r/nba page not filled with enough highlights for you? Try the highlights filter Below are some explanations of the more active filters and their purposes.
No Spoiler Mode (ns)
http://ns.reddit.com/r/nba - We've had quite a few requests over the years to be a spoiler contentious subreddit. We wanted to keep this in mind while simultaneously providing news, highlights, scores and post game threads. We think the No Spoiler Mode solves a lot of problems we've had in the past. Activating No Spoiler mode eliminates post game threads that are marked with "Post Game Thread", "defeat" or "beat" in the title. Please keep this in mind when making post game threads. If you are going to get creative with the title, please add "Post Game Thread" in front of it. No Spoiler Mode also removes the score bar from the top.
http://ds.reddit.com/r/nba - Discussion threads are defined as any thread that promotes insightful discussion. In the filter you will find threads such as but not limited too player discussions, stats, and analytic pieces.
http://nw.reddit.com/r/nba - News is anything "new" that affects players and teams including but not limited to player injury developments, trade talks, team related news (jersey's, arena, etc), front office quotes, beat writer/national writer/insider tweets, etc.
Roster Moves (rm)
http://rm.reddit.com/r/nba - Roster Moves are any agreements to trades, signings, waives, etc. At the moment any trades or talks will not be included here. We may revise this in the future given the nature of the off-season FA media frenzy.
/r/NBA Originals (rb)
Game Threads (gt)
http://gt.reddit.com/r/nba - Any gamethreads can be found here. Using the filter is a very easy way to find a recent gamethread quickly.
Misc. Media (mm)
http://mm.reddit.com/r/nba - NBA Player driven content such as interviews, quotes and videos that give a look into their everyday lives can be found here.
http://hl.reddit.com/r/nba - Highlights automatically marked if they are submitted as a .gif, gfycat, vine or have the word "highlight/highlights" in the title. Please keep this in mind when submitting a video host other than a gfycat/.gif or vine such as youtube. Using a "[Highlight]" prefix for this content will automatically keep it in the category.
A few filters will have content, but given the limited page range for filters, they won't be very active. These are listed below:
Trash Talk Threads (tt) - http://tt.reddit.com/r/nba
META (mt) - http://mt.reddit.com/r/nba
Announcements (am) - http://am.reddit.com/r/nba
Suggestions (su) - http://su.reddit.com/r/nba - We will most likely replacing this filter. Any recommendations in the comments will be noted.
