Community Tested This wikiHow teaches you how to send a private message to the moderators of a private subreddit and ask to join as a new member, using a desktop internet browser.


  1. Open Reddit in your internet browser. Type in your browser's address bar, and hit ↵ Enter or ⏎ Return on your keyboard.
  2. Sign in to your personal account. Enter your username and password in the username and password fields in the upper-right corner of your screen, and click the login button.
  3. Click the envelope icon next to your username. The white envelope icon next to your username in the upper-right corner of your screen will open your messages page.
  4. Click send a private message. This button is located next to the inbox tab in the upper-left corner of your screen. It will start a new private message.
  5. Type /r/name of the private subreddit in the "to" field. Entering the subreddit name here will send your message to all of this subreddit's moderators.
    • If you don't know a subreddit's /r/name, open the subreddit in your browser and check the end of its URL link in your address bar.
    • For example, if the subreddit URL is, you should enter /r/privatesub1 into the "to" field.
  6. Enter a relevant subject line in the "subject" field. Make sure your subject line is brief and to the point.
  7. Write a message expressing your desire to join the private subreddit. In the "message" field, politely explain why you want to join the private subreddit, and request an invite from the moderators.
    • There is no guarantee your join request will be approved. Most private subreddits have very selective criteria for accepting new members.
  8. Click the send button. This will send your message to all of this subreddit's moderators.
  9. Check your messages inbox for a reply. Give the moderators some time to read your message, and regularly check your inbox for a reply. If your request is approved, you may receive an invite link from one of the moderators.
