Arlong Park Forums is run by mods whose job is to make sure people stay on their best behavior. Generally speaking, the mods get along well with everyone and have a decent sense of humor. Typically, the only users who really have a problem with them seem to come off as whiners who become unreasonably mad for a one-day ban after repeatedly ignoring the rules of the forums, despite several advance warnings. To differentiate the mods from regular members, their user names are generally colored green.
Mods are denoted by four Green stars under their usernames. They are, in actuality, global moderators, but that's too much of a mouthful.
