I would like to know what are the benefits of being a mod compared to the standard NG User. Hope you don't mind responding to my question.

There are no benefits.
Only more responsibility.

Ability to post never ending spam topics about your crappy latin songs then ban people who don't enjoy them.

I'm looking at you maus

You get to ban people for spamming or being abusive.
Like...say if I were to call you a big fucking rump bumping cock sucking faggot who enjoys jerking off his dog...I'd probably get banned.

From what I know, Mods have their own fourms on Newgrounds. They can lock, unlock, ban, unban, and delete threads. They are very powerful users, but if you don't break the rule, then they won't hurt you. MOST of them are nice.

Being a Moderator isn't really better, than just being a regular. It's actually a job. unlike most of the users on this site seem to think... it's not a status symbol either.

Benefits would be closer contact to the rest of the Administration. Sometimes getting first hand information about changes in the site, the ability to give input, and be heard faster.

Other than that, I can't really think of much else.

None of which any of you can do, that posted in this thread...

.

PS The "secret forums" aren't a big deal either... the only one that really gets used is the BBS Moderators Lounge. There are two others... but they are quiet usually.

They can administrate, view ban/lock/post logs, delete posts, check if a user is banned, double post, and see one additional forum.

And it's not that fun, because the more power the more work and weight on your back, aided by the daily AIM "OMG UR A MOD RIT!?! I WANNA B UR FRIEND!! DOS THAT HELP M GET PROMONTD?!!"

I'd know, I was a mod on different forums before :|

I missed the required ban quota for this month, so I don't get the bonus. It's going to be tight, have had a lot of bills coming in. Life's a bitch.

Damn... that's a bitch. Why didn't you just post a couple spam traps with an alt? Then ban everyone who posted in the spam thread. That's what I do when I'm tight on my quota.

They get to laugh at nasty emails sent to them by idiots. And a swish @newgrounds.com email address. And locking, banning, commanding respect, and posting in the mod forum (which, in reality, is probably a pretty shitty forum).

Some of them complain. It would probably distance you from the NG community.

My only real concern here has been flash anyway, so if someone wants to act differently to me because I'm a mod they can go fuck themselves

Ugh! I'd HATE to see what the BBS would be like if the mods actually got paid for banning people.

You bet they'd ban your for every single post that even slightly touches the "grey" area to get an excuse. And people like Bedn would have no use for their "veteran status", since the mods would ban them just to get some extra. =P

It's nice to be able to ban someone who gets on your nerves, but suddenly people treat you like you're an asshole all because you're a mod. People claim you've changed, but it's actually them who has changed.

I'm very pleased and honored to be a mod, but it comes with a lot of responsibility.
