ModBot's primary function is to let us moderate without having to use the vbulletin mod interface, which is practically unusuable on a mobile device. It's not actually anonymous -- all of our actions are done via our regular users, just initiated from a different interface. 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.
Modbot is anonymous modding. Or something something cell phones.
That doesn't narrow it down, I bring up NeoGAF posts to everyone I meet. It's how I pretend that I'm funny/
I have had someone unknowingly bring up a post to show me something a few times.
Blargonaut, what are you doing! You can't tell them about the Secret Game! They haven't gone through initiation! There's hazing to do, a manual to read. You're going to blow everything!
Would you like to join the Secret Game?
Only me, Rest, Floridian and EskimoJoe are playing at the moment.
John Kowalski had to... retire... for the evening.
edit: And so did terrisus >.>
He watches you when you sleep.
Oh cool we can ask mod questions here.
So what's the deal with modbot? Why isn't his name red? And is he like an actual user? There are questions I feel of the utmost importance.
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.

Starting a change.org petition as we speak.
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.
oh I do have a legitimate question I dunno who gave me my tag
or do I? I think it was nirolak, or something
I mean who here reaches paranoia rpg levels c'mon
As someone connected to the gaming industry, let me assure you it is for sure influential and devs / pubs / retailers care whats being posted here. On gaming side at least
Although if you sort the gaming forum threads in number of Views, some threads are getting between 3 and 5 million views, which should be pretty decent in terms of ad revenue.
Bwahaha. I just like to take in info and store it god knows where.
You and I sound like complete opposites. I make it a point to spout my opinion freely without context. It's gotten me this far in life, why stop now?
That is my middle name :X! I get bored at work, and I'm the type that loves to read news of all kinds, it's great to have to all nice and comapact with all kinds of opinions. Also, funny note, like 4 years ago I made a note there was a Uruguayan guy ( you) posting on this forum to my Uruguayan girlfriend. She thought I was weird. :(
Yeah. Go to places like Reddit, GameFAQs, YouTube, and even places like the Giant Bomb or GameTrailers forums. I think IGN is the only big gaming forum I can think of that doesn't completely despise GAF, and that's probably because there is (was) a lot of overlap in users. There are a lot of former IGN posters here.
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.
People spend hours creating free content OTs for a for profit website. Mods spend hours cultivating a community for free for a for profit website. One person profits from it all.
I enjoy the contrast between this dynamic and the general forum attitude toward, say, increase of minimum wage or just compensation for work done.
So I'm not the only one who thinks Opiate is a robot.
No, you mistake it for Opiate.
I can send the money via paypal (BORING) or I can enter you into this week's Neogaf Lottery entry*, where we are giving away literally millions and I mean millions of GAF points**. You can PM me for details.
Wait. Do you mean you don't get paid to post here? I do. I make posts all the time that only EskimoJoe Gold members can see, and you can be one of them for the low, low price of $7.99 a month. PM me for details.
I'm going to need your credit card details
