    They fight to the death. The winner of each round becomes a staff member.



    On a serious note, this question has been asked dozens of times. Just do a search.

    Randomly, by Costello tied to a donkey while being blindfolded.

    Seriously.

    All the candidates say a random word to Costello and he picks his favourite.

    I won with 'Eggbound'.

    are you serious? :rofl2:
    i thought that people were observed throughout the year and then selected
    like how many times did some guy give a valid report to a mod etc.

    Yep, that's actually how it happens (not the donkey thing! :P). But sending reports isn't enough, there are a lot of other things to be considered - maturity, over-all helpfulness and others.

    Oh, and one fundamental requirement for being a mod - NOT ask to be a mod :ninja:

    It's how they're chosen.
    That's why members try not to look into a trainer's staff member's eyes. They don't want to battle.

    I vote no Black-Ice.
    Better candidate, please :angry:

    It seems worse with people who want to be reporters.
    As Hadrian said in another thread, people want Costello to pat them on the bum :creep:

    Both. I remember once when someone in the staff put a carrot in Costello's pants just to see the donkey's reaction.

    Funny times.

    They trade sexual favours for staff positions.
