I just noticed this when I saw a strange “Achievement Unlocked” notification pop up on Reddit. What do you think of this? It seems like a retention tactic to me, like what Amino had with its streak leaderboards, and GameFAQs currently has with streak achievements for logging on ten days in a row and also for all days of a month.

      No, Reddit is going fine. But they want to do better. So they make up stuff like this and it will work.

        They have all their bots creating first-class content. They don’t even need mods anymore. They don’t need humans anymore. They are basically a self-sufficient bot word factory and AI breeding ground. Like, if I ever felt the urge to rate babes with my masterful babe-rating skills or use my excellent human-judging skills to discern whether the repost-bot is the asshole in that regurgitated story, I’d go there in a heartbeat.
