After six years at the helm of Reddit’s community management team, general manager Erik Martin announced today that he’ll officially step down.

The news came via Martin’s Twitter account:

Martin joined Reddit in 2008, three years after the site launched, and is widely credited with bringing the site from its beginnings as a niche tech site to its current status as “The Front Page of the Internet.” Today, the site has more than half a million subreddits and 115 million unique monthly visitors.

No word yet on where Martin plans to go from here, and Reddit has not announced his replacement.
