So I thought I'd make this thread simply because I think Giantbomb has some of the best mods around. I've been around the forum scene from GameFAQS to 1up and other forums and honestly these forums are among the most pleasant to visit much in part to the mods. I've never seen any real favoritism or throwing their weight around. They enforce the rules but are fair and generally keep the riff raff out. And holy god... is crazy. His stat blogs that he makes are incredible. So, hey I just thought if you like hanging out on the forums that possibly some of you might want to just stop in the thread and simply say thanks to the mods. They are incredibly accomidating. Hell, petitioned the mods for weeks to let us WWE fans have our own little corner where we could discuss wrestling and they totally let us do it after some back and forth.

So heres to you guys. , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Thanks for making Giantbomb a pleasant experience!

No love.

I'm not on GB a lot, but when I am here, I'm always aware of the incredible amount of time and dedication put towards making this place 20% more duder-friendly. Pat yourself on the back, mods.

Was Endogene a mod? It's been so long since he frequented the forums that I can't remember.

Giant bomb, we have everything from a sexualized hamburger, a deliciously edible pie made of zombie and a bear with balls on his face!

Thanks for your hard work mods.

@Demoskinos: What horrible misdeed are you planning? It must be pretty rough if you need to butter up to the mods so blatantly before unveiling it.

But indeed, the mods here are doing gods work. It must not be easy keeping this den of insanity and inanity in check. Thanks duders and duderetts (is that what was agreed upon for female duder?)

(seriously does this buy me a get out of jail free pass? can I go start a thread that is just for posting youtube clips of cats beating up dogs and not have it locked?) (PS I'm kidding)

I think so, but I'm pretty sure he was a Wiki mod, so I don't think he dealt much with the forums.

@pyromagnestir: Not a damn thing. I Was rewatching the last Design talk video with Alexis and Dave and Ryan and Dave mentioned the mods and how fucking crazy hard they work and It just sparked an idea to make this.

Never had a problem with the mods, I have had a couple things locked, but it was understandable, and they were always cool to me about it. So Happy Birthday Mods! It is their birthday right?

@Subjugation: There's a calling all mods button? Where is it?

@Demoskinos: While I suspected that was the case, I'm disappointed to have you confirm it. Some potential evil on the horizon keeps things interesting.

Also I'm starting to think my cats beating up dogs thread is not such a bad idea after all. What if all the videos had to have the Mortal Kombat movie theme playing over them, thereby making them (sorta) video game related? Hmmm...? Who's gonna shut me down?

Yeah, mods are cool. I disagree a bit with some of the policies they enforce, but mostly they're reasonable and make the right decisions.

It'd be cool if we also had a corrupt mod like that amir0x guy at NeoGAF who had his position forcibly revoked (kidding, mostly).

I'm now picturing The Shield, only Vic Mackey is an overzealous mod of a videogame website. I think this could be gold.

Ah, sorry, I was really using "corrupt" in the non bribery or personal gaining sense. I actually meant it as he was the "worst mod ever". Searching "amir0x" on Google just shows how many people hated the guy and he eventually got his status removed by the administrator of the site for being too much of an asshole.

I'm fine with the mods, they can get a bit out of hand sometimes, but they're pretty good at keeping themselves in check most of the time.

Thanks mods for not banning me for:

Coming up with Question of the Hour because of that dude's "Question of the Day" posts.

Talking openly about how much I hated a certain group of people that made a certain community magazine.

Taking advantage of the wiki system to earn quest points (got just a wiki ban for that one).

Being a part of a group of people that continued to push Hitmanagent47's buttons.

Starting the wrestling revolution.

Trying to derail ZombiePie's Community Spotlight to the Wrestling Ring Spotlight.

Not banning me for sending a picture of myself dressed as Marilyn Monroe to certain members of the mod team (and thanks for the compliment, )

....

ok, the last one isn't true.

Hell yeah, the mods here are great. They are strict and calm when they need to, and they stop all the trolls and spammers from infesting our website.

So thanks to MB, Sweep, BoG, Gamer_152, CitizenKane, MattyFTM and the rest of you for making this site a better place!

Cheers to ya'll!

One day I'll join the ranks of mods to be able to complete the elusive mod-related quests!

Until then, I continue to plot, and at the same time give thanks to the mods for a job well done.

Gotta hand it to the GB mods, they're diligent, and down to earth.

I did manage to get on the bad side of them once, but I suppose all is forgiven in time.

Oh man, I should totally read the FAQ if it has such hidden gems as this in it.

Every time I use this button I will begin the message with "All units." I am not joking about this.

Perhaps photoshopping in a nose would help. How about one like this?
