You won't get it. Simple as that. Here are three reasons why:

1. You are too new to get one.
2. You are not known around.
3. You asked for it.

If it were as easy as you made it out to be, then everyone would be a moderator.

You don't ask to become a moderator. You are asked to become a moderator. Simple as that.
Plus, the staff only searches for mods if they really need one.

The fact that you want to be a moderator enough to ask means you probably just want to abuse the power. When it comes to actually moderating boards and dealing with spam, it's not fun. Trust me, I've administrated multiple forums and VCMP servers. It's nice being able to ban people who are obvious spammers/trolls/cheaters as soon as you see them, but dealing with all the BS that comes with it just tuns into a major headache.

Yeah, and you end up becoming the target for mass PM-ers who want you to take a personal interest in every squabble they take part in. It is a very thankless job at times, though enjoyable if you like cleaning things up.

So, you need to be a woman?

If you want to be one, chances are you're not going to be one. It's like walking into the Office for the first day and expecting to be manager.

I don't think you would want to be a moderator. Don't forget that Admins and Moderators have responsibility. It's almost like a job, except you don't get paid. Plus, they're constantly being PMed by Slamman and other members of the forum. So enjoy being a member! It's a lot more free. Personally, I like creating posts and acting like a 14 year old GTA fan. Moderators don't really get a chance to do that... just look at Ryan. Half his posts here are from 'Locking topics'. It's tough work.

Moderating is a job that needs to be done, but it ain't fun.

Mod? They should make you lead admin directly, because you didn't join in november, you joined in MARCH.
