    TOP 10 WAYS TO BECOME A MODERATOR

    #10

    It involves a secret VooDoo rite with a rubber chicken dance, hot coals, and fire ants.

    But you can save yourself the trouble and just hit yourself over the head repeatedly with a hammer until you can't take any more pain and aggrivation. Then, you'll feel exactly like the moderators do.

    Sneak past the Fox into the Hallowed Sheepspen. Pick out your favorite ewe and pretend you live on a farm in Northern Maine.
    If the sheep comes out laughing - you can't be a moderator.

    Find Slysofts corporate HQ in Antigua. Bring CEO Mr.Giancarlo an offering of home-made lasagna. Of course, if he doesn't like it, you have to swim home - with the fishes.

    Send a PM to Webslinger on this forum and ask. I recall he has something in his auto-text regarding asking him to become a mod.
    In fact, send him at least a dozen - make sure he knows you're really serious. Only a couple PM's and you'll look unresoved and lazy>

    And the #1 way to become a Moderator is.........


    Practice writing on the blackboard 1000 times:

    "The problem is NOT with AnyDVD, it's with DVDShrink because it's old and unsupported. What you need to do is buy CloneDVD2. This will solve all your problems, bring on world peace, feed the poor, and make ewe an official member of the Swell Guy Sheepclub."

    Well, you definitely got my day off to a good start, Clams Canino. :) Or is it a good end? Nonetheless, good creativity until the #1 reason. Sadly, it lacked something.

    I have never written that; I also have no sense of humour, and anyone PMing me about becoming a moderator or asking for technical support will be stuck in a cold, dark room with The Ravenous Bug Blatter Beast of Traal (and you will not be provided a towel to cover your eyes either).

    And here I always thought that being a moderator of a message board involved being technically helpful and also being an all around nice guy. I'll have to remember the top 10 for another board. #1 may not apply though...

    Hi :)
    Danisco,
    If & when a forum needs an additional/replacement Mod. The existing Management will invite someone to become that said person.
    There's no hard & fast rule. You may be very knowledgeable or just good at putting viewpoints across.
    So there's no specific path to follow.
    Often those who are selected weren't reallly looking to do anything more than help others.
    Is this answer enough?
