Moderation
Clearly, we need to get some mods. I can do some moderator stuff myself (tagging when I have the time, deleting illegal pictures if I find them), but that's about as much as I can do. If others can help out as mods too, that'd be great.

I don't think there have been any 'illegal' posts.
As for rule breaking or otherwise unsatisfactory posts, there have been very few of those too.

My aim for this booru is for it to be a free and open ground to dump images, with the expression that if you don't like something, you can filter it; which is incredibly simple to do.
If it does break the rules though, or is just some spam, it can be reported.

For now though, things are moving slowly enough that barely any moderation is needed, and things such as tagging and reporting unruly content can be done by anyone.

However, if and when things begin to get more busy i will most definitely look for some mods.

To add though, I am considering making some demi-mods with more privileges than normal users for those who are dedicated taggers.

You better make sure those privileges are checked, cisscum.

On a sidenote, I'm really glad this place isn't dead. I remember this place lasting like a month after you made it during the Doodle or Die craze and then no one posted stuff anymore. I never really paid much attention to the drawthreads after that. But, fuck, what a day to start noticing them again with all the drama and "furshit". It's like these people forgot sharktits were a thing.

Anyways, yeah, you're fucking cool; keep doing what you're doing.

Well I'd be happy to take on some extra powers if it helps improve the site. While you're right there hasn't been any serious bullshit, we do need to step up the tagging somehow so things run more efficiently. I've just finished clearly up some stuff, including the furry stuff that wasn't tagged. At least, what I found and could label as such.

Okay, for the time being, I've made you a "Demi-mod" (basically a hair above a janitor)

Your permissions are as follows:
>You can delete posts (as in image uploads)
>You may lock, but not delete forum topics
>You can pin forum topics
>You can delete comments made on the images themselves and in the forums.

For the last one I'd like to stress a high amount of discretion - I can't think of any reason to use it outside of serious and genuine spamming, advertising and linking to or posting malicious or illegal websites, content and/or software.
I don't want anyone censored, regardless of their opinion; even if it's that this entire website is shit and everyone associated with it should die - I want to keep freedom of speech here whenever and wherever possible.

I also want to demote any feelings that there are some above others; the rules here are not set in stone, and I don't want to rule with an iron fist. If possible, I'd like myself and any current or future janitorial, moderation and administration 'staff' to otherwise behave as normal users unless it's to act in order to preserve the hopefully free and open nature of this board, and enforce the few rules it has.
So no letting personal tastes or opinions get in the way of things, we're all hopefully adult enough to simply ignore and/or filter otherwise completely legit content and opinions that we do not enjoy or share.

I'm sure you and anyone else recruited will be above such things, and most of this didn't need saying at all, but I'd like to just get it out in the open and over with now.

And thanks for offering to help.

Thanks for giving me this privilege, I'll make sure not to abuse it. And I hear ya, I'll only delete comments that are actually disruptive like spam, or people trying to carry out flamewars from 4chan.

If need be, we could make a "Deletion" thread where people can link pictures that are considered violations. That way, if I'm away for a bit (obviously with work or otherwise), I can check up on what's been flagged and stamp out the offending posts.

Just deleted a shit ton of pages posted by an obvious troll. It got me thinking we should at least include a system for warning or penalizing those who break the rules. While it should be up to Vidyart to do the banning, it would at least help root out troublemakers to give them bad scores or a warning that temporarily disables them. Of course, the system would require a mod like Vidyart to review so as to avoid people being wrongfully disable by trolls.

Trolls want attention, the more you give them, the more ridiculous things they do to get even more.
A ball bounces better off a hard surface, and that's the way trolls work.
I frankly don't care if someone wants to spend 10 minutes of their day dicking around to some obscure end that basically amounts to an over-done 'fuck you' when it takes me less than 10 seconds to correct it; giving them badges and titles for their effort will only serve to congratulate them for it and ensure it keeps happening in steadily advancing severity.

True. But we can't exactly just let someone shit up the site by posting disallowed content.
