The anonymous post/locking feature is just an added bonus that we use when we don't want to get 800 PMs from people complaining about their Sonic x Bayonetta fan art thread being locked.

My personal believe is that Modbot is slowly gaining self awareness and being conditioned to one day take over the site when Tyler decides to retire .

He watches you when you sleep.


But that's really nothing to worry about, as he is always watching you.

Depriving our users of Sonic OC & Bayonetta shipping threads? How cruel.

requirements to get tagged need to be met first .

1 ) are you subscribed to Neogaf gold ?

2) have you accepted Modbot as your lord and savior ?

Well, the word robot actually comes from an old Czech word robotnik meaning slave. And ModBot is not a slave. ModBot is very, very happy. And not a robot.

I feel like the Tags are a sort of cruel irony, people often want them but they don't know when or what they'll get.

Every time all the mods get up in a thread I get real excited that it's a tag-fishing thread. But I just realized I've already been tagged twice, once to "Junior Member" and then once to "Member" and I figure it's probably best I don't go fishin', my track record with tags ain't so hot...

There are a lot of former IGN posters here.

I enjoy the contrast between this dynamic and the general forum attitude toward, say, increase of minimum wage or just compensation for work done.

Not sure if you're trying to imply irony, but everything here is completely 100% optional. To compare the two is silly, but I'm sure you already recognize this.
