I know. I'm saying the employees have little say in who becomes a moderator because they aren't active. The mods tell them who to promote to moderator status and they will.

But as far as I know, that hasn't happened in a pretty darn long time.


From your post, exactly one year and two months.

I think when I said employees, I think I said it in a specific way. Moderators are volunteers, not employees.


I wish we were employees. But then that means 7 1/2 of the 8 hours
doing nothing but maintenance. I'd do it full time for 8 bucks an hour with free time on weekends :D

More like the mods. The employees aren't active within the community at all, so they don't know how people are.


Right. When it comes to selecting mods, we say the word while they promote. Aside from activity count, the moderation team can know first-hand how a user will behave when given the tools.

I need Merits and more Forum Posts to become a Mod.

But, some Admins doesn't have any Merits or barely any Forum Posts. -.-

All Moderators wish they were paid, lol.

By the way, was there a Moderator who was younger than 18 before?

Several; Calm, Dank, Estel, and probably NoNameC68.

Because it isn't their job to be community manager. Some are busy making games and some are busy with the sites coding...etc.

To become a mod has nothing to do with merits or a high count in forum posts...
to become a mod has something to do with aptitude...

Carlie explained that being active will increase your chances. She explained that having a number of Merits and a reasonable amount of Forum Posts will increase your chances.

Outdated information. Read the opening post. You don't *need* merits, and you'll get forum posts by being active. It says you must be consistently active for 12-18 months.
