Oh boy! CP Spam!

…Fuck! We were doing so well.

Looks like we got too active and the pedobots have been alerted to our presence. A volley of cp or other porno spam is appearing about once a day, usually posted specifically at times when staff in the US are asleep. The devious bastards! We also don't know if or when the spam posts will increase or decrease in frequency. That means it's time to hire a bunch of janitors again.

What we Need

We need several frequent (many times daily) Uboachan users in a variety of mostly non-American timezones (or with similar availability) who would like to become Janitors and help us keep Uboachan clean of spambot posts. Users in American timezones are still welcome to apply.

What Janitors Are

Janitors are otherwise ordinary users with special limited access to the site's administrative backend. Janitors have exactly one job, and that is to regularly check the recent posts page and Perma-ban & Delete spambot posts as they appear.

What Janitors Are NOT

Janitors are not moderators. They do not interpret the rules, moderate disputes, or take any actions against regular users. They also do not have any special privileges or status compared to regular users, aside from the job listed above.

Summary of Responsibilities

* Check the recent posts page several times a day. The more frequently the better.
* Be present in the moderation Discord channel, where you can talk with the site and Discord staff and other Janitors.
* Perma-ban and delete obvious spambot posts as quickly as possible.
* Ask Seisatsu if you are unsure about a post.
* Janitors who abuse their authority will be dismissed.
* Applicants who are chosen will receive a more complete Janitor's guide.

How to Apply

Post in this thread. Your post should contain the following.

* Email address where you can be reached.
* Timezone and most available times.
* How long have you been visiting Uboachan?
* How many times a day do you usually visit Uboachan?
* How many times a day do you think you can check the recent posts page?
* Why do you want to be a Janitor? Why should we choose you?

Thank you and good luck!

I'm at my most active 5-9 AM & 4-9 PM GMT +1 with some traces of irregular activity in between.
I've been lurking ubuu since about early 2015, although i've known the site existed for a bit longer.
In my browsing session i usually keep a tab open to see if there's any posts to look out for. Usually with a refresh there and there to check if i got a reply/somebody posted in an interesting thread. On average i would say i check the recents quite often.
I'm that fag that keeped reporting spam with the same tags by the way.

During the winter I'm GMT 0 here, during the summer it's GMT -1. I'm available from 9AM to 1AM during workdays. On weekends I don't have a fixed schedule, but it is closely the same.
I've been here I believe since 2012. I'm not sure how many times I come here in a day. On a low day I visit Ubo at least 3 times, but if I need to janitor it, I'll add a tab to it on my phone and check on it a minimum once every hour.
I don't know how much help I can be, but I've been here for so long that I don't mind giving something back to Ubo. And lately, almost each time I come here, there is cp on recents so there wouldn't be much difference except that I would be able to take it out instead of just reporting it.
The only problem I have is that you ask to be present in the discord channel. I have social anxiety and talking to people online without the anon mask makes me really uncomfortable. I don't have any problems in being presente when you needed me, but the rest of the time I'm going to shy away from being participative. Sorry for that.


(is meta discussion allowed in this thread, or only application posts?)
Not sei, but the discord chat thing is probably in case either sei needs to contact you quickly or if you have any questions for him, so don't even worry about "talking" with people because that's irrelevant for being a janitor.


Thank you, that is good to know.

I'm mostly available from 2pm to 11 pm on weekdays, and really anytime during the weekends. I first visited early in 2014, but only started frequently posting in 2016. I check up on posts around every hour or so. Spam just annoys me. It puts me in a bad mood because of how it breaks the atmosphere. I don't like it when people are trying to sell me things in general. Literally every time I see a spambot or solicitor, I report them.


Seems like as soon as I call in the cavalry, the threat disappears. Oh well, it is better to have a janitor staff on hand in case they come back.

After about a week, only three people have expressed interest. I guess that means I'm hiring all of you. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

My home Internet is down right now because I'm totally broke, but I will try to get around to setting things up and sending out emails within the next week.
