is becoming a moderator the biggest achievement on armor games?


It varies from person to person, but I would have to say no. If you're the most respected member of the community and you have no moderator powers, is that not a greater accomplishment than being selected by other people to earn a position you may not have even necessarily been trying to earn?

seems too complicated to be worthwhile


If you aren't willing to put in the effort it takes to be a helpful and respectable member of the community, you do not deserve the title. Which means you are clearly not worthy to handle the power to delete posts, or lock threads, or temporarily ban people (or type in blue).

They're volunteers of the community. Admins are known for being paid employees for also programming the site. It's a job.

To be a moderator? It is not about time just involvement and experience.

Zophia was modded in four months when she came here. I'm sure a few others were modded in about two-four months in '08. Nowadays, it probably takes about a year or two of being here to even get nominated and considered.

The About page knows all! There are currently 9 active mods, but I'm either the 12th or the 13th actually modded.

What are the "support purposes"? Isn't against the forum rules post in another language than english?

Yes, but it isn't against the rules if you are speaking in another language on a person's profile that also speaks the language.
