What we do

For us, content moderation means creating a safe place for our users to create and enjoy. To accomplish our moderation goals, we use internal and external tools to promote good behavior and look for gaps, options, and solutions to punish and prohibit bad behavior. We strive to understand why things work (or don't work), and to implement those findings with a purpose and elegance. If that resonates with you, then we'd love to talk.
