    Well, after you make a post, do you see that bar under your flag?

    That's your percentage-to-being-a-mod-meter. Mine's at 10%...

    Meh...I made everyone a undercover mod, keep it a secret. No one will know your a mod, not even yourselfs, but you will have the ability to flame posts, and report things to the "Famous" moderators.

    Or be like Guild, and act like a god.

    The quantity of posts you have means nothing. You cant spam your way to being staff, in fact quite the opposite would happen if you spammed. Also if you display a hunger for being staff you will most likely be struck off the list too. Say if you made a specific topic about becoming staff in the site discussions section, if you did that you can pretty much forget about it.

    *cough cough*

    In all seriousness, if you want to help with the scene releases
    speak with the Magazine Staff

    Have a look through the member list http://gbatemp.net/i-members from that you can guess if you want to be staff you'll need to have been a member for 2 years, have atleast 1500 posts. I imagine you'll also have to spend a bit of time on IRC making friends with the current staff, and also try to get noticed on the forums/ IRC.

    Sort that member list by number of posts descending, 60 per page. You'll see they have plenty of members on the first 3 pages (who have been on dor a few years) from which they can draw from if they needed staff.

    I imagine for mag staff they also want someone who submits a few non shitty topic in the user submitted news.

    Hadrian begs to differ.

    But if you bring quantity and quality and, you know, aren't a complete dickbag then you may get a shot.

    I mean I already paid my $100 briber's fee, I'm still waiting on that fucking staff position. Don't you dare steal my cash, p1ngy you bastard.

    So all you have to do to become a mod is to do that?

    Or do you have to give the mods homemade cookies everyday?

    I'm confused. [​IMG]

    Why do people want to become a mod so much? I don't really see the benefits.

    People do realize it's like a job? more chores to do...

    And the pay sucks.
    Not to mention people decide to hate you for no reason.


    @fudgenuts64: Not a problem.
