MetaFilter's site and server can always use upgrades of hardware, software, and bandwidth, as well as more stable funding for continued support of its small but high-skilled moderation and backend team! If you'd like to chip in, you can donate to Metafilter.

The moderators, a.k.a. the mods, are in charge of Metafilter and have a variety of administrative responsibilities. The contact form is the quickest way to get in touch with the Mod team -- it sends an email to all of them at once.

Primary Mods

Volunteer Mods

  • vacapinta, since May 2008. Based in London, he's the "in case of emergency" midnight mod, because sometimes spammers work at night.

Non-Mod Staffers

  • frimble keeps the site's back end running smoothly. They handle coding, bugfixes and feature builds. frimble is not a mod but they will delete posts if needed.

Emeritus Mods

Partially taken from the FAQ: "Who's in charge here?"

Now they all watch the flagged posts pile up, delete questionable posts, occasionally post to the sideblog, and settle any disputes that might arise. You can email all the mods at once using the contact form.
