A few days ago, we blogged asking for questions in order to record a Q&A with the moderation team. CheapCheep, koolness234 & I did this in order to give the opportunity for the Tengaged public to ask us specifically about some of the decisions that we had made over the last little bit and to inquire about future directions of the website. Sorry for the delay in posting this, but it is finally ready and can be found below.
DISCLAIMER: This was recorded on the evening of April 24th, meaning that it happened PRIOR to the decisions to ban Akeria/Aquamarine from the website. For any discussion of that in particular, please refer to the blog that CheapCheep had posted yesterday.
The video is posted below. You will also find specific time stamps of each question at the bottom of the blog. Please note that we did not answer all of the questions that were posted in the blog for the sake of time. We stuck (mostly) specifically to moderation-related questions and questions about the direction of the website, meaning we skipped questions that solely asked for opinions or something along that nature. Sorry if your question had been skipped, but feel free to reach out if you have a burning question you'd like answered.

I watched the part I was tagged in and the princessa peach part and I'm really satisfied with how you guys addressed it. I definitely see the viewpoint of the mod panel here and I think koolness234 rly put it in perspective that the bar for banning racism on tengaged would be super low, even tho I still stand by the fact that supporting a racist killer is a RACIST opinion regardless of it being an opinion or how many people hold that opinion. Thanks for covering this :)
I just listened to most of the points debated and I do think as of right now the .br/.es representation is something these communities need to feel safer, as their fights can get really heavy and strong words are used but it's hard for an english speaker to judge on that, let alone other infractions
Thank you so much for providing answers to our community!
