Moderation Request

Recommended Posts

Is there any special thing I must do to become a moderator? I would like to moderate if I may.

Okay. I'll first give the logical response, and then I'll be stupid.

Becoming a moderator is not easy. You have to come here often, and be well known by many people. Most importantly, you must have Ling's trust. if he doesn't think you are worthy, forget it. No moderator powers for you.

Now for something stupid.

Send Ling at least 1 GB of porn.
Finish Millennium for Lüt.
Give Zaldron a plane ticket to the US.

or blowjobs. lots of blowjobs.

Being a moderator is not all it is cracked up to be, you have to be able to spot a bad post from a mile away, you have to be able to answer questions people may have, you have to spot potential troublemakers, as well as be able to quell a flamewar, among other things.

Easiest solution: bend around, swallow your head with your ass and hold until you suffocate.

I've seen that done before. It was quite amazing.

Unfortunately, by starting this thread you have inadvertantly removed any small chance you ever previously had of becoming a moderator. Bad luck.

...fight fires, rescue Lois Lane, pull children out of freshwater rapids, divert planes from crashing into cities, take on 10 drug dealers in hand to hand combat, re-write third world debt, explain the world to George Bush, walk on water, be the first man on Mars, battle the Doom Demons and win in all versions of the game and in the thousands of pwads out there, and be back in time for breakfast.

If you succeed in all that, then comes your bigggest test.

You must deal with a bout of the Dashivas.

Do all this this and you may, MAY be made a mod. And, which is more, you'll be a man my son.

You become Mod of a specific forum if you do something special for this particular forum, you also have to be very active in this particular forum (but only active with posts that make sense).

I think I became Mod of the fanfic forum because:
1. I visit it often and often try to give constructive criticism to a story.
2. I often attempted to to stop people from being too harsh on those who tried to write their first story (or generally people who wrote not-so-great stories).
3. I tried to prevent people from turning a half-decent story thread into Post Hell material.

Zaldron, who's now an Admin came from becoming a Doom 3 forum Mod because he often had an explanation on technical terms handy for those of us who were too ignorant to know, plus he was very active in that forum too - apparently, he did well as a Mod and was also highly active with non-spamming posts in all the other forums, so he became Super Mod.
Recently, Lüt and Zaldron became Admins, because Ling felt it was time to replace the existing Admins (I suspect), and those two were obvious choices.

Lusting for Mod status and powers is likely NOT making you a Mod, because chances are that a person who goes after power is more liable to abuse it.
And believe me, once you've tried being a Mod for a few days, it isn't really that interesting anymore.
My advice: Focus on becoming a regular, respected member instead - it's a lot more satisfying to know that you've done something to help other people (even if it's a small thing) than it is to have a Mod status.

Another way is the reverse psychology :

Whatever you say Ling, you should't make me an administrator :D

Or don't even bother with the reverse part, find out where he lives and start sending him flowers until he gives in or something.

Hehe, in all seriousness it's better to be a user than a mod. End of story. Everyone goes through the phase of wanting to be one, but it passes in a big way when you really see what it's like round here.

Like DSM said, being a mod isn't all feasts and flowers, it's hard work, and it takes responsibility.

Make up your damn mind. First you're a mod, then you're not, then you're giving advice on being a mod, then you're not a mod, now you say you ARE a mod?

Hehe, oh, on the subject of moderating, could I be a mod on the ZDoomGL forum? Pretty please? :P

Sotarn doesn't come here very often, and since probably half the posts in that forum are mine (non-spoam) anyway...

...ok, I'll stop babbling now.

OK, now that it seems you are all done for time being...

I'm not seeking a Moderator position for power, really, I was just wondering about it, not lusting after it.

Could somebody tell me what "IMO" means?

Mods are chosen - it's not something that's assumed. Dsm joked that i'd end up being a mod if there were ever a fan-art forum - i take that comment with a pinch of salt (no offence dudey, nice gesture tho!) as i haven't been round long enough, and i don't really know the other mods that well.
