It is a cheat used in video games. While it's mostly obtained through hacking or a cheat code, in online games, admins sometimes have a godmode option in their admin panel.
1: Hey, are you watching the new livestream? There are admins playing!
2: Are they again using godmode to cheat in parkour?
1: Well, yes.
2: Not interested.

Taking control of another person's character on a role-playing forum or chatroom. Sometimes done by mistake, when a player believes another player's character was doing something they weren't. Can also be used to refer to using out-of-character knowledge (information the player has that their character shouldn't) to gain an in-character advantage, though this is more accurately described with the term metagaming.

Godmodding and godmoding are often mistaken for being the same word or concept. However, godmoding (or power gaming) is, in fact, a separate concept with its own, distinct meaning.
Player A: Alice calls Bob forward, and the moment he steps forward, the trap is sprung, dropping him into the floor below!
Player B: Hey, that's godmodding, I never said Bob stepped forward!

Player B: Bob carefully steps over the trap as he approaches Alice.
Player A: Bob doesn't know there's a trap there! I call godmodding!

Godmoding covers a lot more matter than usually given credit for. It's a term used in many forms of roleplaying (Be they table-top, forum, IM, etc.) for any of the following problems:

1) When a character knows information that they shouldn't - this information could be taken from a forum they aren't supposed to have accessed, the user's prior knowledge on a subject (usually in fanbased RPs that follow a timeline), outside conversations about characters, or anything along those lines.

2) When a player takes control of another player's character (this is negated if there is some form of mind control involved, but even still permission for actually moving the character should be discussed). A common, though often accidental, version of this is when a character attacks another character and they explain that the other character was hit, not giving that person a chance to let their character dodge.

3) When a character is somehow invincible - if there's a GM, good luck getting this character through to the end. Everyone has weaknesses, your character should be included.

Should anyone out there still not get it - Godmoding is a bad thing.

1) Situation - In another forum, the GM has had a hitman hired to assassinate Player A's character.

Hitman: *Happens to be a super pretty girl - just the kind that Player A's character likes* Hey baby.
Player A: *Shoots in the head* Stupid assassin.

2) Person: Player A shoots at Player B, hitting him twice in the arm and once in the knee. And then, Player B falls to the ground, crippled from pain.

- In which the person's character is Player A.

3) ... does this really need explaining? They're indestructible.

All of the above? Godmoding. Generally considered rude / illegal in play.

When one plays a character that can never be destroyed, harmed, etc. The character, however, can hurt and/or kill the other characters without giving the other characters a chance.

This is highly illegal in most, if not all, roleplays.

Mispelling of Godmoding & God Modding in rpg and forum settings, thus the meaning is the same. The term applies to "Godly-modification" or "Godlike-modification" to a character, through skills such as evasion and the like, as well as the character's personality which usually consists of a superior "I know all, see all, and am all", et cetera. The singlemost annoying and obnoxious gamers on the planet. Tend to act like 7 year olds when they don't get their way during games of pretend, i.e. - Bang, you're dead! Yeah huh, I killed you and you can't play anymore!
Godmodding Bill not only managed to magically know the secret base's true location, but also passed all of the armed guards by hopping from tree to tree like a natural-born monkey, and managing to rewire the electric locks which were state-of-the-art using a paperclip and a piece of fuzz from his pocket. Once inside, Bill used his deadly and artful bare hands (along with a combitionation of poison that he had learned in one week to brew in his toilet) to take down 38 of the guards and dogs, inside. That done, it was a mere task of busting through fifty-eight doors and cartwheeling gracefully through the laser beams, before waltzing into the innermost vault and plucking up the plans for complete world domination.
