Ask the mods anything

What’s the meaning of life moderation?
What changed for you guys when you become a moderator? Did you see Derpibooru differently the moment you got assigned your shing ‘4chan Site moderator’ official title?

I mean, my dad was. But they seem too much like the local rotary or the legion.
Also it’s kind of a sausage party.
How about you?
Sausage party.
Now I’m imagining some bouncer guy with a cloak being all like
Also, how do you know that alien is not a girl? A very male looking spy girl in a sea of sausages?
No ban please have mercy on my poor troubled soul D:

In the early days (2012, even 2013) it wasn’t rare to see Phusion Passenger (a web server software) error pages instead of ponies, when we regularly overloaded the poor site.
And during our exodus in June 2012, the site was very creaky for weeks.
And then there’s The Great Downtime of 2013, but that wasn’t caused by Derpi’s staff, it was the hoster’s fault.

I’ve reported some of my comments for removal a couple days ago but nothing has happened, is this a glitch or is there a reason for this?

Ok, wrong thread for this, but … I have a couple thoughts.
First, we have to remove each post by hand, so we rarely take down more than a handful of comments at a time.
Second, even if we delete your comment for commenter's request it still shows that you commented. Plus, any comment replying to you is still on the site (unless it’s somehow rule breaking).
So deleting comments doesn’t really do anything except hide the content of your comment - replies to you that quote you still exist, as do replies to you, and your pseudonym still shows up as having commented on the image.
Your comments don’t disappear, it just leaves a tomestone where you had commented.
Third, you have thousands of other posts. So, we’re not going to remove all of your comments. That’s not going to happen.
Fourth, you’ve changed your name so none of your remaining comments personally identify you.
And last but not least …
Reply to the PM I sent you almost a month ago and let me know if you want to be wiped. Cause it really feels like what you want is a wipe.

There’s another thread, called ‘Ask the mods important questions’, which is for site- related things, like deleting comments, asking for reports, dupes, how the site works, spoilers, bugs (Not Chrysalis), etcétera.
This is, on the other hand, a chill out thread, where people can just ask whatever they feel like to the mods. Think of it as a friendly chat room.
I guess they need separate thread to ‘segregate’ or ‘organize’ the important questions related to site functionality from the questions that are more like ‘How many cats do you have?’. And it’s advisable to post site related questions in the ‘Ask the mods important questions’ thread since a mod might not see it thinking it’s a random question.
