Mods, how did each of you become a mod? I was just reading comment someone said about Users sometimes becoming mods. This made me wonder how this happened with Chicken brutus then. So then I thought it would be interesting for us to read how all of you mods came to be mods.

I would like to become a moderator and help out with the forums. What does it require to be one? :)

I saw an advertisement for reviewers on the site a while back, I presume they would do the same for mods, I think they all have to apply by email and I guess the admins choose who becomes a mod when a position is available.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

That's right some reviewers are not mods. Maybe I should have included that too? I just wonder if sometimes someone just catchs their eye too. Like Chicken. I'm sure most people notice HIM.:)

I think silver = mod, while gold = admin.

Gold shields are admins: they have the keys to the kingdom and can ban people and edit content on the site.

Silver shields are mods: we can edit/lock posts and that's it, so if you get banned don't come running to me or Chicken -- it wasn't us!

As far as how folk get picked, that's something the Admins decide. I was asked. I'm unaware of any shortage at the moment, but I'm sure if they feel more hands are required they'll ask!

... You don't get it by bumping threads :P

Mods are selected from our community members who show diligence in sticking to the rules, respect other members and set a good example. When we are looking to recruit new Mods, we'll usually approach them ourselves :) Don't frett, though, we do all read these forums (even if we lack the time to contribute to many threads) so, just like Santa, we know who is naughty and who is nice ;)

As for reviewers, they are more often than not posted on the site so that everyone may apply openly. You'll notice the ad when we are looking for fresh blood.

I just felt compelled to draw attention to this. Not for any particular reason of course...

Get paid? What an amusing concept! Seriously it's all from the heart. I will confess to originally declining the offer so it's not power I lust after; thankfully it's not too difficult with all due credit to our members. Thank you all!

Man, you've got to be careful who you drink with. Did Chicken B. do that to you? :P
