    1) A warning, suspension, or ban. We're a bit tougher on new members who request warez because they've literally just filled out several forms and boxes that say over and over again that we don't allow roms here.

    2) No, it wouldn't.

    3) By being a helpful, well-behaved member. Being here for a while and contributing (in terms of post content, news, etc) is appreciated as well. Of course you also have to have the right sort of personal skills for the role, as an example, an ex-dictator of an island nation? Not right for the role. [​IMG]

    One very large requirement, generally, is that you do not ask to be staff. We'll find you. Asking gives us the wrong impression.

    If you wanted to help out, you could submit scene releases (You need at least 100 posts though) but I'm not sure if it works (because I have never tried)

    Well, normally you can go here: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=module&module=rmc and submit a release. I don't know if you need 100 posts (probably though)

    also, time is still an hour off [​IMG]

    to be a mod or staff you get picked by the admin. The admin sees if you're good or bad.

    To add additional clarification, links alone is not comprehensive a statement. They will remove even just non linked names of sites too (found that out myself).

    So don't attempt to name a site and no link, even the name alone is not permissible.

    Incorrect, if all the other staff members disagreed to their suggestions issues would most likely occur. In terms of staff selections this wouldn't happened as the majority rules.

    3 : Ask and you shall be given.... or is that the bible, oh well

    And you need to be an experience member and one of the main points is they need to need staff ( [​IMG] ) as they only need a certain amount of people for each group ( mag staff, mods ect )

    Well, generally asking to become one shows a greed for power which could have the opposite effect [​IMG]
    I've been a mod on some small sites myself, but does that make someone a good mod? Probably not although it could help (I'm not saying your a bad mod [​IMG]).

    If they need staff they will find the needed people automatically [​IMG]
