Welcome to issue 5 of The Redditor, ourlargest to date. Our main focus this timearound was not only to feature great originalcontent from reddit – but original content ex-clusive to The Redditor. With our subscriberbase just passing 5,000 - and 100,000 issuesdownloaded – we’re starting to develop rec-ognition, stronger community support, andthe ability to feature some amazing originalwork.One of the big changes we are most excitedabout is collaborating with a new guest artisteach month. Our magazine features four corechapters (AskReddit, AMA, Stories, and Pics)– so each month we will be working with anartist from reddit to create original artwork to
introduce each section. Our rst artist is Alex
Beltechi, and he’s certainly starting thingsoff right.We’re also thrilled to debut a great photoseries created by the reddit staff, “The TopCommunities.” Each image features a differ-ent member of the reddit team who high-lights the site’s top subreddits - all in the styleof the ‘Top Doctors” ads from airline maga-zines. We’ve produced an original AMA fea-turing the work of a fantastic artist whosesubmission went largely unnoticed, but cer-
tainly deserves attention. And nally, we
worked with the developers behind RES 4.0to create a nice subreddit of the month thatshows off their newest release.
We hope you’ll nd some new content
that slipped by and enjoy the readability of our magazine format. Beyond the pages, you
can always nd back issues at theredditor.

With our subscriber base just passing 5,000 - and 100,000 issues downloaded -we’re starting to develop recognition, stronger community support, and theability to feature some amazing original and exclusive work.
