When new mods are needed, the current mods and admins talk out who would be good for the job and then ask the member(s) if they're interested.

We generally don't consider requests. When needed, we (the current moderators and myself) discuss who we think is best suited for the job. You can make a good impression by posting often, being friendly, and assisting those that need help.

There's also a little audition if you're considered for modhood, at which you must appear dressed either as Superman or Wonder Woman, your choice. We evaluate how you look as either superhero, and go from there.

Sexual favors. Though, from experience, I can tell you that it doesn't always work.

'Favor' is so subjective here...

Fair enough ..

For just such events I have been training a goat in all the arts of the kama-sutra.

To where would you like it sent?

Is the goat anthropomorphic?

On a serious note, we realise our team is probably a bit under-represented in certain timezones / parts of the world. This is usually not a problem, but it means we don't have moderators online around the clock, and we also don't have resources to explain the aussies' sophisticated jokes to the team. (We usually just end up rolling our eyes. (I'm joking of course, it's my super-sophisticated Norwegian humour shining through. ))

So if you want to become a moderator, make sure we notice you in a favourable way. Think about good moderators in the past or present (e.g. jeneticallymodified) and try to emulate them as best you can

I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)

Would eccentric behavior exempt one from being a moderator?

I have three chihuahuas that I take out and about in a stroller; so no, eccentricity is not necessarily a problem.

Hah!

Well, I hope you can view me in a somewhat positive light, despite my previous deeds.

Well, I consider most people on VB to be more normal than me, so perhaps it's not an issue of being a moderator or not.

Your post count is a little low. I would try to at least get it above 15k. You can use that time to show you mean business by posting things like "C'mon gang, let's keep it PG!" or "I'm all for fun and games, but is this "rainbowtrolling" gag really appropriate? Trolling is trolling, no matter how you dress it up."

Or start a controversial thread in the heap?

First rule in becoming a moderator is not to really want to be a moderator, asking automatically disqualifies one from the running.

To become a moderator, you have to pass up my post count. Good luck.
