How Does One Become A Moderator?

  • This topic is locked This topic is locked

Best Answer uNi, 13 June 2014 - 10:49 PM

Decide upon a series of ideas, morals, and philosophies that you truly can live by. 

 

Educate yourself on the history of Forum Moderators. For example, you might want to read Masaaki Hatsumi's book, Secrets From The Ninja Mod. Most mods were freelance mercenaries who used their skills to support their families. Some mods, however, were employed by admins and government officials. And some worked solely for their own gain. The mod lifestyle was diverse.

 

You need to direct your lifestyle accordingly.

One doesn't simply become a moderator. You have to work your way up from being a good member, helping others and other things. After awhile you might just become a Led by and later on as a moderator

You're wrong. one does not become a moderator. He's inactive since a while, so there wouldn't be much point in it.

Don't you think it's rather obvious you just don't ask to become one?

How many posts does it takes to answer a question that's been asked before? The world may never know.

He moderates moderators. That's why he's undercover.
