Jannies, also known as Joons or Janitors are a race of fun-hating transgender untermensch generally charged with the lowly and unnecessary task of moderating 4chan, as well as the name of a recently discovered brainworm parasite. However the phrase is also used for the moderation teams of other websites (such as Soyjak.party) as well.
This is often accompanied by phrases such as: "They do it for free" or "fuck niggers fuck jannies" to mock the tired, sexually frustrated individuals that moderate imageboards.
The original design of a janny comes from Mr. Morris, a character from the PBS show Arthur, who’s occupation is a janitor. Funposters have a long and well established tradition of making OC mocking the janitors. Among soyposters, this tradition has resulted in several soyjak variants. The large ears of the character also represent the ease at which the brain slugs enter the human mind.
As a species, Jannies are sluglike creatures that natively live in swampy areas. They are parasitic in nature, and they enter the brains of unsuspecting humans in order to puppet them. They then answer to a sort of hive mind, and seemingly are immediately added to the 4channel moderating team. The current reasons for this are unknown.
Janitors often abuse their power in order to silence detractors. This happens on most websites.
As of January 2023 Soyjak.party has a vicious moderator who gives out perma'nishments to anyone who disagrees with xer[it just is, ok?] due to an insanely fragile ego, presumably from having a tiny penis.
The 4chan janitor interface when in a thread. The X stands for delete while the B is to 'nish.
What reported threads/posts look like. 4chan hasn't updated its UI in about 20 years so this is probably still how it looks.
Alleged Discord accounts of every single moderator. Probably not their current accounts anymore.
ABIB demonstrating through an interaction with a user why you'll often see him singled out as the worst mod.
Least embarrassing 4chan moderator. Also a nigger LOL
The former mod of /co/ "Redwood" threatened to range'nish a specific drawfag if he didn't make this for him.
Most of your interactions with them will look like this.
The default Vichan admin interface. [IP ADDRESS] is replaced with the poster's IP. Button meanings (from left to right): Delete, delete all from IP, delete all from IP on all boards, 'nish, 'nish and delete, sticky, autosage, lock, cycle, edit, delete file, spoiler. The mod interface looks familar, except without the D++ and edit buttons. There is also a [move] button, but it is disabled by default.
The report queue, as seen from a Janitor. Janitors, by default, only have the ability to delete threads.
What the homepage looks like as a mod.
Jannies love to feed on earwax, and if out of an ear canal, they also enjoy eating dirty socks.
Although the most commonly proposed etymology of the term refers to 4chan janitors, chudstorians hypothesize that it is a shortening of the Turkish word "janissary", referring to boys kidnapped by Ottoman rapesons, sodomized, circumcised, converted to Islam, and forced to do the Solomon cult's bidding for free.
