Introduction

I’m going to investigate why and how programmers design Reddit bots, to achieve their intentions by contacting programmer’s which have produced bots. I will Research ways bots have improved online communities and how they have hindered users as well. I will be researching the design considerations, such as making the system usable. The ethical considerations, the rules I need to follow as defined by Reddit, how I will follow the universities ethics and consider ethical implications of bots on other platforms. I plan to incorporate what I have learnt and create my own Reddit bot. The aim of the Reddit bot is to improve the users experience and encourage more people to use the platform.
