Be cool, thank a (Neowin) moderator today! :)

Guess admins and supervisors miss out on the thanks. :laugh:

I can relate to the amount of BS a moderator/admin must put up with from my various experiences on other sites. It really is a PITA sometimes. But other times it is extremely rewarding.

So thanks guys!

Well, I'm faced with quite the dilemma.

Either I thank a moderator, thus showing Neobond to be a liar; or I don't thank a moderator and come off looking like an ******* O.o

Yup, mods are greatly under appreciated IMO! They get so much beef, so little reward!

They don't do it for reward, getting rid of the numpties is reward enough to keep the community going.

I don't get this thread, yeah moderators are great but I don't see why you feel the need to make a thread about them, they do it voluntary and they can always walk away if they don't get thanked.

Dealing with the troublemakers so Neowin is a friendlier and more inviting place is a reward itself; however, it feels good when people appreciate the work you do. This thread definitely put a smile on my face. We definitely don't do it to have a bunch of thank yous thrown our way but a thread like this is nice.

Hurray for the mods! I moderated small forums but I sure wouldn't want to moderate Neowin :|

There are a lot of thankless tasks... and I agree that moderator is definitely one of them! :) Any task where you give of yourself freely and are still criticized or yelled at or berated in some way is pretty thankless... Howie Carr used to have a "No good deed goes unpunished" segment on his radio show...

It takes a special kind of person to moderate forums of any kind. But Neowin isn't just any forum.
It takes an extra special person to moderate the Neowin forums.

The patience required must itself be tremendous.

Ladies and Gentlemen of the Neowiin Administration, I take my hat off to you.
