Ellen Pao, the CEO of the popular social media site Reddit, brought her apologies for “letting down” users after Reddit fired a well-liked employee. Victoria Taylor used to manage the website’s popular Ask Me Anything subreddit, and her dismissal as director of talent caused a so-called “Reddit revolt”, which resulted in around 300 subforums of the website on such topics as gaming, science, history, and cinema being shut down by moderators.
The company provided no comment on the details of Taylor’s dismissal, but Reddit said it was striving to provide its moderators a better infrastructure and support network. Ellen Pao officially admitted that the bigger problem of the company was that it hasn’t helped its own moderators. In 2015, she said, Reddit has started building better tools for moderators and admins, but it will take some time anyway.
Besides, Ellen Pao said she wanted to apologize to the site users and added that the management should have informed moderators earlier about personnel changes. However, the site administration wouldn’t comment on the firing of Taylor, while they dismissed speculation that her departure had to do with the moderation of a Wednesday AMA with Reverend Jesse Jackson, which contained racial issues.
Following the user protests, the site founder took the responsibility of triaging AMA requests in the interim, spending hours communicating with users, fielding concerns and suggestions. He said he tried to use the site to create a dialogue to better keep its community and its base informed. He came to a conclusion that the first thing the site team could do was get a moderator like Taylor to be the point person for moderators.
