    Mods dont get paid, they do it for the fun and responsibility. From experience, people dont get on any mod teams by first asking how much it pays.

    LOL hehe being a Mod is not that fun:

    1. You gotta deal with people asking the same questions over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ... well you get the idea.
    2. You have to deal with people posting DVD burning questions in the "Feedback and Suggestions" forum or asking about how to make PS2 backups in "(S)VCD" or stupid crap like that.
    3. There seems to be an unlimited supply of people who violate Rule 1, Rule 3, Rule 5, Rule 8 and Rule 9. (oh they violate the others too -- just not as much).
    4. People seem to want clean, clear, concise, understandable responses and help but guess what, they dont put the time and effort into explaining their questions (hell its as if they have a keyboard impediment)
    5. People have a really hard time with Rule 5 for some reason.
    6. Then there are the morons who type in ALL CAPS or FuNkY cApS

    Now that we've established that its not so fun: Moderator promotions typically come as a result of:
    1. Not being a moron on the forum. Big requirement
    2. Having a cool head and posting objectively, conflict resolution etc
    3. Respect for forum rules etc, general conduct
    4. How helpful you are to the overall foruming community
    5. Typically a nomination by another Mod.

    Just from being on forums in general (this one in particular, i dont know why) I see a lot of 1, 4, and 6. You're right it does get annoying. I dunno, I like being a mod, I was in another forum a while back. who started funky caps in the first place? nothing is more annoying.

    LOL in my brief visits to the console section of the forum i have noticed a lot of issues with Rule 6 :p but since I'm not really the resident mod of these parts im not gonna pass judgement ... this console business is about as alien to me as ... well... aliens.

    hehe, while we're on the subject, what are the differing titles and how many posts are needed to obtain each?
    Newbs, easy, but how about Junior Member, Member, Senior member etc...?

    I don't think their is set number of posts for Senior Members and Afterdawn Addicts. Those are all hand picked.

    Quite correct although 1000 seems to the the rough boundary line for Addict and Senior comes (im guessing) on average at 800 or so. Dont forget its not so much the quantity but the quality.

    I made senior member pretty quick.. Actually, I never really paid much attention to my "status". The next thing I know Darthnip reccomended me for senior member!(Thanks again Darthnip) It doesn't take long. Just help the others out and someone will notice.
