Hi. The subreddit moderators are a mixture of staff and vetted community leaders. We do post and reply there but given our size, we also rely on the community for self-policing. We're lucky to have enthusiastic and friendly users so this seems to work well.

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. I agree, and we're currently looking into how we can make this better for Japanese users.

As has been mentioned before, we're planning to close this forum and now have a date - Monday January 9th, 2017.
There are several reasons for this including:
* Good discussions already happening in the DuckDuckGo subreddit
(general chat) and DuckDuckHack forum
* A large amount of spam that x.15a2 has been patiently dealing with. Very patiently!
* The maintenance required with our limited resources.
There are many useful tips and suggestions here so we'll keep the content available but will disable posting and commenting - effectively the forum will be archived.
Thank you all for the helpful and friendly discussions and we look forward to continuing them in the subreddit
and DuckDuckHack forum

Good idea - I'll pass on your suggestion to the team. In the meantime we do have site-specific searches like !giphy.

Hi. We released a bug fix that fixes the white flash for users with the dark theme on some browsers, e.g. Safari. Please could you check that it's OK for you now? If not, what theme and browser version/operating system are you using?

Hi. Thanks for the suggestion. You're right, we added a date filter a while ago but only up to one month. I'll forward your comments, both for open-ended and preset choices, but because of the way our results are sourced, this could be a bigger challenge.
