Which one it's harder to moderate/administrate; Derpibooru or Furbooru? (Also which one do you like the most?)

@altopony

Lolz, and who are the Derpibooru gods in that case?

But seriously, that error is annoyingly common for me, I find it even on the soup!

While Furbooru does have a much larger scope than Derpibooru the thing is Derpi is already 10 years old at this point and it's a significant part of the MLP fandom with a great following.

Furbi is not even one year old and has a long way until it becomes truly relevant in the furry world therefore the activity on it is still smaller.

But this is only part of the story, Derpi has some rules and policy inconsistency which we were able to refine and improve on Furbi which makes decision making also easier, all that adds to Derpi being a more challenging site to moderate.

Requirements to ever be considered for Staff is just being a hard working user, people who upload content, helps with tagging and sourcing while good history and a footprint in the community are more likely to be considered for an Assistant position.

Usually saying you'll start helping if you're given Assistant role is not a good way to go about it… priority will always be for those who already helps.

The first launch was in late December 2011. There were only a few dozen images uploaded before that was wiped and the site started "for real" a few weeks later. Still not quite 10 years, admittedly.

At a conference with 60 other people and the people running the conference have never used a computer before as far as I can tell. The whole video is shots up their noses as they look at their keyboard and the menu bar on their computer through their bifocals.

The session leader just asked her son to come and help. He looks 16. He took one look at the screen and said something about rebooting the router and kicking everything off the wireless except for the session leader. I think the conference will be saved.
Five, again

What do you think about this?



Btw, do Staff members secondary accounts (Like Derpy Whooves /Ciaran, etcétera) also have those magic staff powers? Like, if you are casually strolling through a bunch of images you can ban any sucker that's misbehaving?

Also, have a nice day/night! :D

@Princess Celestia

Aye aye, and how does it feel that you constantly need to log off and login on one or another account? Do you ever had any problems with that or simply was lazy and posted somewhere using your Admin account? No offense

Also, for admins; what are the main differences between Administrators and moderators other than title? Do you guys have more duties or have special tasks that moderators cannot do? Or it's simply a title to indicate more years in service?
