Reddit has several ways you can express your appreciation of a good post or comment. You can upvote it or guild it with silver or gold based on a Reddit currency called coins. Now you can also give a monetary tip, but only for one particular Reddit user: shittymorph.

Reddit - Subreddit

Reddit is testing tipping on one subreddit.

Reddit is experimenting with tipping users, starting with the shittymorph subreddit, a group dedicated to the man who has memorably bamboozled many a reader with sneaky comments ending in a reference to a famous pro-wrestling match called **** in a Cell.

Reddit - Admin - Internetmallcop - Thread - Tuesday

A Reddit admin with the username "internetmallcop" posted a thread on Tuesday announcing the experiment, calling it a "new feature to support u/shittymorph." Anyone in the group can now tip shittymorph for content he posts in his own subreddit.

"This is an experimental feature available only in this subreddit, and no other community," internetmallcop writes.

A "tip" option appears below shittymorph's content. Clicking on it opens a window with suggested $3, $5 or $10 tips, or the choice to select another amount. You can input your credit card number directly into the window. The payments are handled by processor Stripe.
