  • Subreddit r/Android is back after a blackout protest, but still in a restricted mode.
  • The moderators want to know what they should do with the sub going forward.
  • The announcement also includes an apology for not allowing the community to give input on the blackout.

If you’ve visited the subreddit r/Android over the past week, you’ve faced a closed-off community. The moderators chose to join the blackout protest of Reddit’s upcoming API changes. Now, though, that protest is winding down as moderators grapple with the idea that Reddit will not back down from its plans — even if that means removing mods and replacing them with more pliable folks.

Today, the unofficial Android subreddit is back. However, it is still in restricted mode, which means you will need to place a request with the mod team in order to post new content. Commenting on existing content, however, is fine.
