Some links that have been posted to reddit, but it can't see:

http://www.symmetrymagazine.org/article/july-2015/one-higgs-...

https://medium.com/recreating-megaman-2-using-js-webgl

http://calvertjournal.com/features/show/4458/owen-hatherley-...

https://github.com/MuseumofModernArt/collection/

(If you search reddit for any of these URLs it goes straight to where they have been posted.)




Thanks. Maybe reddit's API filters out some results that have zero comments. I looked for an attribute in their API that would ask for all results but couldn't find anything. Also - I'd like to inspect Reddit Check's code but can't find an open-source repo https://www.reddit.com/dev/api#GET_search


I looked at Reddit Check's background page and checked the network requests it was sending. It sends a request like this:

https://www.reddit.com/api/info.json?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sy...

Weirdly it seems to send the same request several times. And it should also use an &limit=100, so it gets 100 results instead of 25.


These links turned out to be extremely valuable feedback. Reddit's response is formed differently for them (as opposed to what it gives 95% of the time). I'll have an update very soon. [Update: new version has pushed to Chrome -- Kiwi should be processing all Reddit results now. Firefox update will be pushed tonight.]


Thank you so much for the fast response. I can't edit my comment now, but I will change my review in the chrome store.
