    Moderator?

    I was wondering how you can become a moderator? So i searched through the FAQs it said who the moderators are and how to contact them but now how you can become one. So i was wondering if anyone know how you do become a moderator and do you have to be really high in AO posts and points to do so? That is if it is possible for regular AO people can become if they are interested? And if it is possible what would i have to do and go through to get there?

    Thx

    JupiterMedia would probably contact you or let you know if they needed/wanted a moderator. As of right now, they seem satisfied with who they have currently (as do most the member's). So technically, you can't become a moderator unless chosen. And asking alot isn't going to help either (not saying you are).

    I would say that:

    1] You would know your stuff
    2] Be helpful not critical when posting
    3] You would have an unbiased opinion regarding closing posts/banning members
    4] You would be respected here
    5] You would pm jupm for the job
    6] Maybe start a poll for new mods
    7] You would pm jupm for the job
    8] You could get other members to pm your nomination
    9] Be here long enough to have earned respect
    10] Not behave like myself

    Or walk into the AO Offices with $1,000,000,000 dollars and demand to become an Moderator...
    But seeing as you don't have One Million dollars i think your chances of becoming one are very very slim...

    Gotta agree with albn and add (which I shoulda added to my above post) that really the AP system is about a bizillion moderator's in itself if you think about it.

    I got this answer when I asked JP about it many years ago:

    As for becoming a moderator.... We currently don't have or accept moderators that are not employees of AntiOnline. The exception to this, is in our chatroom, where we INVITE specific users to become "ops" and "opers".
    I think that policy still stands - with the exception of Ennis who isn't employed by JM/AO.
