There are a lot of people who work hard to keep the site up and running. In addition to the Newgrounds staff there are countless moderators who help to maintain civility in various sections of the site.
Q: What do the moderators do?
A: Site moderators (also known as "mods") help maintain select areas of the site, generally making sure that members of the NG community are somewhat polite and policing the site for stolen content.
Forum Moderators – These guys and girls enforce the Forum rules, and they can lock threads, delete threads, posts, signatures or signature pictures, and ban users. When a user is banned from the Forums by a moderator it only affects his posting privileges; the rest of NG is still accessible.
Audio Moderators – The audio mods are in charge of audio artist approvals and judging whether audio flagged as stolen gets removed from the site.
Review Moderators – They enforce the review guidelines, and judge whether reviews flagged as abusive are deleted or not.
Icon Moderators – They approve icons uploaded (via the iconhelpers page) for submissions that don't have a custom icon.
Art Moderators – They review art that has been reported for being stolen, offensive, or in violation of other Art Portal rules.
Q: How does one become a moderator?
A: Do not ask to be a mod! Users who are model poster, act mature, and help point out problems to the current moderators if they appear to have overlooked something (without being annoying about it) are invited to become mods themselves. If we decide we need more moderators, this type of consistent, helpful user will be more likely to receive an invitation.

A: You read us correctly: Bots. As in robots.
Q: Really? What do they do?
A: Yes, really. These guys help us out with all the automated tasks that are too time consuming otherwise.
Q: Who are they?
A: We currently employ five bots. We only send official notifications using the ones listed here. If you get a message from a bot by any other name, please disregard this fake bot's ramblings.
P-Bot – Picks the daily Flash Portal winners and announces them on the front page every day, and removes unworthy submissions from the site with his BLAM cannon.
A-Bot – Sorts and ranks Audio files submitted to the Audio Portal, and picks and highlights weekly winners.
G-Bot – Creates, validates, and ranks user accounts.
M-Bot – Assists site moderators by notifying users of bans and removals regarding forum posts and submission reviews.
I-Bot – Helps users filter and sort Art Portal submissions, and picks each day's winning works of art.
