r/MaDDSolutions partners with r/maladaptivedreaming

Unfortunately it never quite took off. So the Mod there has shifted management to the larger subreddit, hoping a stronger affiliation will breathe life back into this community. We are looking to build a mod team there, we will need people willing to:Build the sub by giving it an identity; a wiki, sidebar, rules, mission statement etcSet pace and tone by providing content in the form of posts and comments.General mod duties of handling reports and ensuring content meets sub guidelines...
