    Mod criteria

    Just wondering what the criteria are for mods here.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Well... have you met SIXTO yet?




    Can't be too high a standard, right?


    (Just kidding, love you guys- you're the best)

    Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.

    Are you wondering how members are chosen to be moderators here?

    When it is decided that additional Moderators are needed ~ Mods will nominate candidates they they feel may be suitable and then other moderators will either voice specific objections to individual selections - or approve those nominees for a vote.

    Those names then go into a virtual hat.

    And then depending on how many Moderators are needed we will cast a vote for two or three and the nominees with the most votes get contacted in order to find out if they are interested or not.

    In short there is no way for members to request a Moderator position in order to become a forum Moderator.

    Choices are decided upon based on

    > How much a member participates.

    > The value of their past postings.

    > Their demeanor and how they treat fellow members in general.

    > And lastly ~ Our superior intelligence, our impeccable ability to remain cool under fire, and finally our exceptional good looks.

    A thick skin, a long fuse, and endless patience for explaining the forum rules are among the criteria.

    That rules me out. : ) Now if there was a good looks requirement.....OK maybe not there either. : )

    Oh and their ability to talk about zombies, JD just loves to talk about zombies

    (Word of caution, actually talking to JD about zombies might end up in banishment from the forum)

    I too wondered the same thing.

    Though it probably doesn't matter to some, I must say I like the selection process.

    Thick skin. Wit enough to see the forest for the trees. A sense of humor. Patience ... endless patience. Experience enough to matter. Sufficient people skills not to foul the nest. Willingness to work for low pay. Willingness to be somewhat of a target, from time to time, yet to take it well. And a nickel for the party fund, behind the scenes.

    The mods get paid? The majority of forums of this type I frequent, mod positions are unpaid positions and they do so out of their interest and knowledge on the subject of the forum, thus donating their time. Not that I have any problem whatsoever with them getting paid, just surprised because in my experiences, it usually doesn't happen.

    I was being facetious. "Low" meant: practically zip.

    They don't get paid, to my knowledge. Except Sixto, who gets paid back in spades.
