In my experience, I've gotten really poor responses from the Reddit admins almost every time. When I say poor I mean 'none'.

I don't think it's a function of them being bad or lazy, but being such a small team for such an enormous site. I can't imagine being the sole community manager for such a monster. You have to triage between "will answer tersely" and "will ignore". And unless it's a lawsuit or a fire about to burn down the server room, almost everybody seems to end up in "will ignore".

I know what you mean. It must be pretty hard.

I tried many times with no luck. Shame really, because @reddit.com could be deployed like really really fast.

I guess I'll give it another go perhaps. Maybe use a promoted ad to get their attention (and support Reddit in the process :) )

For the best results, reply to an administrator in a comment thread. I think that has the best response rate.
