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.
If you are having a problem with the site and can't find a solution in the wiki or the forums, contact Tom
to report the issue. Please don't disrupt the rest of the staff, as they have plenty of other work to be doing. Keep in mind we are a small team and it is impossible to respond to every PM. We do read them all, though! Thank you for your patience and support.
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 - enforce the Forum rules
and can lock threads, delete threads, posts, signatures or signature pictures, and ban users. When a user is banned from the Forums it only affects his posting privileges; the rest of NG is still accessible.
Audio Moderators - approve new audio contributors and judge whether audio flagged as stolen gets removed from the site.
Review Moderators - enforce the review guidelines, and judge whether reviews flagged as abusive are deleted or not.
Art Moderators - review art that has been reported for being stolen, offensive, or in violation of other Art Portal rules.
Do not ask to be a mod! Users who are polite, intelligent and helpful will receive personal invites when the time arises that we need more mods. Asking to be a mod is a quick way to not become a mod.

In addition to the human moderators, we have developed several bots who automate many of the tasks that would be too hard for a human to perform on a regular basis. If you are contacted by a bot who isn't on this list, it's a fake.
