Welcome to Meta Discussion Thread #4!
If you have any ideas, suggestions, questions, concerns, comments, critiques, etc. about the state of the subreddit, we want to hear them. This is the place to publicly share and discuss anything of that nature. We’ll do our best to hear out anyone and everyone who comments here. Occasionally, we may use this as a place to ask for feedback on certain topics/ideas.
This thread will stay pinned for a week. After that point, a link to the post will be available in the sidebar, in case you ever need to come back to the thread after it’s been unpinned. On the first Monday of next month, a new thread will be created reapeating the process.
Q: *Who is u/AnimemesBot?*
If you ever have broken a rule, you’ve probably met our bot. u/AnimemesBot leaves an automated comment on every post that is manually removed by another member of the mod team.
Q: *Who are the characters in the banner/who are /u/ChloeMod and /u/SachiMod?*
They are our mascot duo, Chloe (left) and Sachi (right). The results of the mascot and banner contests were announced as part of our [500k celebration.](https://www.reddit.com/r/Animemes/comments/bs946v/500k_mascot_and_banner_reveal)
They also double as subreddit moderators now.
Q: *Can the mods please get rid of Zero Twosday?*
Zero Twosday doesn’t have official support from the mod team. The community is what has kept it going so far, and it’s up to the community whether it stays around or fizzles out. Restricting or banning non-rule-breaking posts about a specific show or character isn’t something we ever intend to do.
Q: *How do I assign a flair to my username?*
A detailed explanation can be found [here, in the Flairs for New Reddit announcement thread.](https://www.reddit.com/r/Animemes/comments/c04wfl/)

– Old Reddit: Go to where your username is displayed on the top right of the sidebar. Click the edit button. Select your desired image, and add some text if you want before hitting save.
