- Reddit is on the move! New r/burst
BMF and BAT will move to a new reddit channel(r/burst)
The current reddit r/burstcoin is under the control of someone thought long departed, but has now come back online. He is currently acting on his own accord, deliberately interfering with the normal operations of the subreddit. After requests to turn over the subreddit to the active Burst moderators were ignored, it was decided to move.
We will for some time crosspost our articles but stop this in the near future. The new reddit is moderated by ryanw and DanDares !
And yes – DanDares is back and will take an active community manager role again.
We are happy to have him onboard – many people will know him from his active time in the last year.
