To become a privileged user, start helping out by uploading lots of good posts (with permission!), helping with tagging projects, reporting malicious users, updating the wiki, or adding note translations.
Being active and helpful on the forum and the Discord server, and being a positive role model for the community are especially good ways to get noticed.


Janitors are the backbone of the site moderation. They are responsible for processing pending posts, handling flags, and dealing with replacements.

  • Can approve and delete posts
  • Can process flags
  • Can approve and reject replacements

These permissions are tied to the approve posts permission, which janitors will always have.


Moderators are tasked with handling everyday community policing and enforcing the Code of Conduct.

  • Can claim and investigate tickets
  • Can give neutral and negative records to users
  • Can ban users


Admins keep the peace on e621. In addition to the duties of Moderators, they are in charge of everything else on the administrative side of e621. Admins are also the exclusive handlers of all tag aliases, implications, and bulk update requests.

  • Unlimited access to all site tools

When new admin positions open up, we will hand-pick users based on their area of expertise.
