    Well for starters you don't go around begging to be one...

    Seriously:
    - you need to be a well respected member
    - you must be well known to everyone
    - you shouldn't be bothering others about it

    There may be more but those I reckon are the main factors looked at.

    YOU don't!

    You don't just become one, we choose people who are credible, reliable and have contributed and have spent time and effort at GBAtemp.

    Merry Christmas. [​IMG]

    I suggest 2 words phrases only: "You Don't" or "You Can't" or "Hell No" and lastly, "Too Bad".

    I see no reason for a sticky. I find it pretty obvious that to be a staff member that is entrusted with some power over the board, they must first prove themselves and set a good example, which takes time.

    if you have to ask how, then chances are, your never gonna be...
    it's the same way you get ops/@ on irc...you won't ever get it by asking...

    if someone deems you worthy of such reward, then they will approach you...it never works the other way around..
    so to make an easy answer...the answer is...

    Impossible, you can't !!1 [​IMG]

    I must say to all the admins/mods/others, that they are doing a pretty darn good job, most forums where i go it's chaotic, they don't close flamethreads and they also ban people without thinking

    keep it up [​IMG]
