That doesn't sound like a "thanks" that sounds like work. :p

Nonetheless, I would be game for it.

Same, I suppose, although I have no idea what sort of questions people would have for us. We're just like they are only someone approached us with a magic green cloak one day >.>

I've had my run in with a mod before but, in reality, when one is honest with themselves, the mods are pretty fair..

I'm a little late to the game, but better late than never, I suppose. Thank you Neobond and all of the staff/mods/gmods, if it weren't for all of you, this site wouldn't be as awesome as it is today. It has truly evolved into a site that can only be explained in one word, and that word is majestical. I say this because it has helped me in the past, and I look forward to the awesome future! Cheers you guys/gals! (Y)

True. Being a mod is not easy because you get blame for any reason. I should know.

 

I take a poke at Marshall sometimes because he somehow always end up being on my case (2 warnings, 1 closed thread), but it's never out of spite or retaliation. It's always with good humour just like I would hit or punch my best friend for the fun of it.

 

I always accept and respect the decision that was made. I may not like it at first, but I own up to it, and move on. Mods and staff are there to do the job appointed to them. So yeah, I may take a jab at a mod in a post, but it's never to retaliate. It's always light-minded, and usually to point at my own flaws.

 

I know it's not easy to convey a feeling or a good feeling to something written when you cannot tell by the sound of the voice, but I'm saying it here. You guys are doing a great, and difficult task. And if I have ever written anything that you may have felt like an attack chances are that I did not mean it in any way , and I probably just forgot to put a sh*tload of emotes.

Really? I don't, I take every opportunity to poke fun at Marshall, it's fun in itself :D

I was warned back in 2011 :(

 

But none the less, thank you to the Neowin Staff!

The key to not getting warnings is (1) putting a picture of pooh bear (it makes mods read shenanigans as nicer than it is) and (2) not posting for a decade.

I for one think the best part of having moderators is making fun of them.

Yup, I'm yet to meet a member of staff here who doesn't have a sense of humour
