haha nice image to go with the point :)

It might be a thankless job in many respects but I think everyone here appreciates the work the mods, the news team and the owners do, so keep it up guys and gals.

I hate seeing people bitch about mods because it's a tough task and, like you said, it's rare to ever see them getting thanked or appreciated. So yeah, thanks for all the hard work guys!

Mr. Bond, I do not only appreciate the great, outstanding, wonderful, awesome jobs that mods/admins/gmods/etc, but I respect you all and put you all on a high pedestal. Keep up the magnificent work!!!!!

When I was younger I used to be moderator on every message board I could get my cookies on. :p

My feelings were that I'd just make sure everyone follows the rules, and that was the end of it. Everything else was just to make chat and contributions like everyone else.

At the end of the day you're all (mostly) volunteers. No incentive to do what you do other than because you want to.

Love the "What banned members think I do" one.

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

and all the reporters, who spend a lot of time phrasing, and paragraphing all those articles...

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

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.
