These lists were created and are maintained by user jdk on reddit.com, with help from:

  1. documents by hero0fwar and by iLLeT; (EndsInThemselves pointed me to the second doc)
  2. the old TV Subreddit Directory;
  3. my own on-going efforts to located other subreddits, and scripts that I wrote;
  4. redditors' feedback and corrections to earlier versions of this issue on reddit, including this old post;
  5. redditors who write to me about this wiki.

Notable events about these lists

  1. On Wednesday July 24th, 2013, asking as a mod of /r/television, hero0fwar sent jdk a PM for the scripts for this data. In response, jdk sent hero0fwar the google doc scripts that fetch the subreddit numbers from reddit and from stattit
  2. On May 20, seeing that there is no replacement for stattit that went out of business, the "most active subreddits" list has been removed.
  3. On July 9th, 2014, /r/TVSubreddits was created for the maintenance of this list.
