Derpibooru needs your help

Are you an active member of the community? Do you wish to help us run the site? Then we really want to hear from you!
We are looking for help moderating Derpibooru. As it stands right now, our team is a bit thinly spread across all the issues, and we could really use a helping hand with site’s daily operation.
As a site assistant, you may help the site in any of the following areas:
  • Moderating images, comments and/or forum posts
  • Dealing with the duplicates queue
  • Tagging images and participating in mass-tagging projects
  • Helping us keep tag implications and descriptions in order
  • Verifying artist links
You’ll only be given some of the above tasks. Please note any preferences among these in your application form. If you are unsure, we can also talk about it with you if your application passes.
For some of these tasks, it’s as simple as looking at some things on the site (such as the duplicate queue or user link queue) and knowing what to do (we’ll be there to teach you), but for moderation tasks, you won’t have access to the report queue (at least at first), and will be more reliant on talking with other staff and observing things on the site. We’ll be there with you to give guidance.
Some things to note:
  • As part of the staff you are expected to be mindful of your public conduct, as moderation can prove challenging at times and may require your discretion. Rule breaking behavior (including actions against the staff code of conduct) will not be tolerated.
  • There is no minimum amount of time that you’re required to put into the site. This is an unpaid volunteer position and nobody expects you to treat it like a job. However, your permissions may be revoked if we notice that you’re inactive for a long time (several months).
  • In addition to the previous point, you should be somewhat active if you wish to be promoted to the moderator role. We don’t have any set time as to when this might happen, but the more active you are the sooner that might be.
  • You’re expected to communicate in the staff chat about almost everything you do as a staff member. To do that, you’re required to have a Discord account and be a member of our Discord server. Additionally, IRC may be a requirement for certain issues.
In order to apply, you must:
  • Be at least 18 years of age and be able to view sexually explicit content in your country
  • Have a Discord account and the ability to join our Discord Server, be active there normally at least a few times per week, and be responsive to @mentions
  • Agree to only use your permissions for Derpibooru’s interests and benefit. If you believe there’s a potential conflict of interest, please PM Princess Celestia so it can be discussed

Does this sound like a good opportunity to you? Then send in your staff application here:

(If your application is accepted, you will get a response via site PMs within a couple of weeks)

You don’t need to have much technical knowledge beyond being able to click buttons and ask for help if you need it.
You do need to speak at least some decent English. While some small mistakes are acceptable, it’s an expectation that you are able to communicate clearly. We don’t expect you to be a native speaker (in fact, we have many non-native speaks on our team, myself included), or to be really good at it, just not accidentally tell a user they’re in trouble while they’re totally fine, or something like that. Also being able to understand everything that’s being said so you make the correct judgements.

Threw my hat in the ring. I’ve browsed this site for many years now so I’m definitely interested in investing some time into helping everything run smoothly. :)

I’ve been noticing that it’s taken some time to merge duplicates lately. Now that I’m using the site more regularly again, I’d love to help with duplicates or tagging.

We’ve received a fair amount of applications and have sorted through them. Some of the candidates have already been marked for an interview, while some will need further review by our team. The applications are still open until Sunday, October 31, 23:59 UTC. We’ll contact those who have passed for an interview in the following week or so. If you passed, you should receive an on-site PM before Sunday, November 14, 23:59 UTC.

Ngl I was gonna say, this site needs more staff atm, the moderation system is running incredibly slow to what it should be, theres so many reports still not responded to as well as posts in site & policy that have had zero response or action to.
Honestly, I’d be interested to help but idk if I can this current time as I am already dealing with a lot of issues/stress in the real world. But maybe at later date/time I would. shrug
But eh whatever, I’ll make a application because I might be better in the next day or week or so––

All staff are in the staff chat, where we typically discuss moderation matters, as well as matters of where to take the site. You’d be able to participate in such discussions if you are to be accepted. Final decisions are always in the hands of admins and senior staff, but we listen to all input.

Woah, I’m so happy that there are a lot of ponies (people) interested in the job. Seems like derpibooru has a lot of support. :D
What’s the interview process like? Is it a zoom call?

Oh cool, very chill. On a previous comment, you said you got plenty of applications already.
How many are you “volun-hiring”? Is it still worth it to put in an application if a person (pony) is interested?

We’ve got an overwhelming number of applications but we’ve been sorting out through them and it’s the interview that really decides if we hire someone or not. If you want, you can still send in your application and have the same chances as anyone else.
