    To become a moderator, do you have to have a perfect warn level (0)? Just asking cuz my warn level just went from perfect to almost perfect (my stupid spamming instincts)

    Excuse me, but why do you want to become a moderator? Trust me moderating this forum is a hell lot of work. Even small forums are hard to moderate.

    You'll get a mod by:

    Being NICE
    Doing useful things, like what I did last: attend on a Wiiu forum. ^^
    attend people on the rules if they break it on a nice way
    Gain the trust from the staff

    So your chances are still not don for it, but you need to prove yourself to be useful here, not just asking stuff and spamming, but helping as many as you can.

    I have not fellowed you(like what did you spam?), like your signature does with me but trust me, try to use the mentioned things above.

    Also, POST COUNT is NOT important to anyone, DO NOT SPAM TO GET A HIGHER RANK.

    Source: some other topic if I remember right.

    You pretty much have to be here for several years, and there can't be ANY evidence of you being a jerk. Minor trolling is fine.

    Creating this type of thread almost certainly scuppers your chances of becoming a moderator.

    I was Global Mod at one point and I've had two warns and a suspension in my first year (unjust personally as a mod thought a comment was trolling when it was just stating an opinion once, though I've said things worthy of suspension since). I think a couple of other mods here have too but people make mistakes/mature so its not something held against you.

    Its more about what the higher ups think of you and if you're up to the task. Mod wannabes certainly won't get promoted though.

    No, we have a couple of staff members who've been warned in the past.

    Usually making a topic about becoming a mod will pretty much neuter any chances of becoming a mod. But, yes, there is one certain member that had a pretty high warn level, and He's a Global Moderator.

    If you want to be a mod, they'll come to you. Don't seek it out, you'll ruin any chance.

    Actually, you don't REALLY have to be very nice or intelligent to be a mod on here. While MOST are good people, there have been a few that think moderating a virtual forum gives them the right to be a dick to people. I've seen it happen. I've talked to people. And the sad fact is that no moderator overrides another, so if you end up dealing with a dick, you're at the mercy of that one person. Nobody will bother helping you, no matter how longstanding your membership to this forum has been.

    With that said, the majority of mods on here are awesome. I just worry about getting another moderator that wants to be a mod so badly. It just feels like we might end up with another dick.

    Actually, you haven't been here long enough to come to any of those conclusions.

    I'm pretty sure 11 months is long enough to have a couple run-ins with some mods...

    Well, I was referring to that combined with his post count. I'd say one of the only times post count actually matters, haha.
