1) A group of more-or-less anonymous people who are pretty much the only line of defense for this site to prevent it from being totally abused. They are pretty much the only thing between you and about 50 million explicit, pornographic, abusive, misogynistic, racist, or just plain stupid entries.
Editors have specific guidelines they must follow. However, these are often vague (especially if it's hard to tell, for example, if a term is just explaining a racial slur, or if it is in fact racist).
If your definition doesn't get published, it could be for one of two reasons:
A) It wasn't that good or
B) Someone just didn't like it for some reason.

In that case, try again...
However, bitching about them probably won't help.
1)Person: "OMG! Those evil facist urbandictionary editors rejected my entry! They suck!!!!"
Other person: "Get a life."

A group of extremely stupid dumbfucks who sit on their asses and choose which entries to publish to urbandictionary.com. They often publish very useless and stupid entries that do not make sense, but choose not to publish some things that are hilarious and informative. Remember, as stated above, they are extremely unintelligent and should not have too much strain put on their small brains at any given time.
Dude, those Urban Dictionary Editors declined my awesome coondawg000 deegert entry last night, but published some entry that defined Justin Bieber as "the act of having extremely small genetelia"

Wow bro that is so typical of those retards

The one thing that stands between the masses and the ramblings of pre-pubescent, ghetto-homeboys. This title is easily obtained, but is a public service that the community should use more often, which would keep at least some idiocies off the internet.

Fortunately, most editors have common sense and abide by the rules, although one can be sure that not all do.
Urban Dictionary Editor is a really important job... They need to keep the junk out!
F0 sh0 n1gg4!

A group of self-righteous assclowns who allow all manner of racist, sexist, elitist, and otherwise offensive terms to be published (helping to keep these terms stay around), but refuse to allow many terms that were created out of harmless fun. Granted it would take up time and space to admit some of these just-for-fun defintions which serve no real purpose, but when I see dozens of slurs and other offensive terms, it is yet one more shred of proof that people are shit.
My definitions were not published, although they were harmless, because the urbandictionary editors were too busy adding variants of all kinds of hateful words, so much so that there are 50+ variants of the same one. I don't care how much of a loser you think I am, fuck you.

2. A person apointed to chose wich definitions are good and totally suck.
Me: I felt special when I signed up to be part of the urbandictionary editors, but then I realized that thousands, if not millions, could be an editor too....lol.

A group of any number of UD enthusiasts who moderate which definitions will be allowed. They sometimes lack good judgment. Ex: There are a million definitions about some gay shit called football and apparent debates about which type of "football" is better. However, all too often, submitted definitions which are truly risible, inventive, original, properly spelled and punctuated are rejected.
Some of the Urban Dictionary editors probably should not be Urban Dictionary editors.
