    I was wondering.....there seems to be no moderator for the Final Fntasy section, and was wondering if I could fill in that space?

    *feels piercing gaze and frowning upon qs*

    Was just wondering that is all.

    P.S. Also being a mod of something is cool ja

    The best way to become a mod is to not ask. :rolleyes:

    Currently, we are not looking for any new mods. The ones we have are sufficient. Skyanide alone does the work of 1000 mods. :p

    Besides, to enforce the rules you have to know and (usually try to) follow them.

    This is more directed at Sky than anyone else, and I hope I dont get pinged for this, this was just out of curiosity after reading this thread. Im not asking to be one, just wondering.

    I was wondering what sort of attributes/attitude/whatever you would need to be a mod on the site, if not here than anywhere. For example, if you WERE looking for new mods, what would you look at about a member to decide whether or not they'd be good at it? Obviously abiding by the rules and enforcing them, but what else do you look at?

    Thanks :)

    *pings* :p

    We generally look for people who whole-heartedly worship Skyanide. Somehow I slipped through the cracks. ;)

    I am a Forum Manager here but am a mod on a few other forums.

    Generally it's a mix of a few things.

    - Be an established member with a regular visitation pattern and a willingness to put in personal time doing sometimes menial tasks for little credit.
    - Abiding by the rules and be willing to enforce them. Yes, even if it's someone you like that's doing something wrong.
    - Being able to read and comprehend well, and express yourself well in writing (spelling and grammar)
    - Show a willingness to try to be somewhat impartial (when it comes to fulfilling your duties, not necessarily your "life views").
    - Can work well with the other staff members (ie not go out of your way to be a PITA) **Unless you become the Forum Manager. ;)
    - Can emotionally take the heat of not necessarily being well liked (because there will also be times when you have to do things that are not popular but are for the good of the forum. )
    - Know when to be lenient and when to bring the hammer down.

    There's really no one thing, I suppose it comes down to the "vibe" you get from the person; because there is a lot of trust, you have access to board functions that can really bugger things up; the bigger the board, the more the trust.

    Once again I see another reference to "Worship" "Skyanide" and "crack" in one post.

    If I didn't know better I would say you have a thing for my butt. :moon1:

    I'm not asking to become a mod, but you know what my reasons are.
