Why use the Power Delete Suite instead of the other mass reddit deletion scripts?
There is complete privacy built in. There are no callbacks to any personal servers, no tracking, or logging. You don't even have to enter your password. EVER. *ahem, shreddit* You are completely anonymous.
There is NO NEED to use never ending reddit to load as many comments / submissions. This script uses the actual Reddit API endpoints to edit and delete instead of automating clicks on delete and edit buttons. *ahem, reddit overwrite*
It's pretty damn thorough. It will first load up your comments page(s), then load your submissions page(s), then do searches with the reddit search api. With EACH of those, it sorts by new, then hot, then top, then controversial. And if we're sorting by top or controversial, it will loop through the timeframes as well (all, year, month, week, day, hour). This makes sure to grab everything it can possibly find.
It has FILTERS! You can make choices about what you want deleted. Filters include:
choosing which subreddits to perform actions in
filtering based on the item's score
filtering based on the item's date time
excluding gilded comments and posts
excluding saved comments and posts
excluding mod distinguished comments and posts
When editing comments, you choose what you want it to be edited to. I'm not going to do some self promo bullshit on your account. What you edit it to is your own business. *ahem, reddit overwrite*
If you are both editing AND deleting, it makes sure to edit the comment or self post BEFORE deleting it.
Many subreddits have Automoderator configs that could be triggered when you edit, so avoid putting anything unsavory or overly paranoid in your edits
You can do an export of all the content you filter, whether or not you're deleting or editing!
It pulls the latest version from github, so whenever I add new features or fix bugs, you have it instantly!
It was built by /u/j0be, a well known reddit user with a long reddit history and moderates several large subreddits. This means you don't just have to implicitly trust "some random person you can't track down." *ahem, reddit overwrite*
