I'd reveal the answer, but then Strop won't invite me to one of his high-horse wine parties.

There are four kinds of people in a forum: those who don't want to be a moderator, those who don't know if they'd make a good moderator, those who think they'd make a good moderator, and those who think they'd make a good moderator.

Only one of those makes for a good moderator.

Cher, that's not fair, I hate MCQs! D:

That sounds more strict than the guidelines ArmorGames uses... I think you got it backwards then! ;)

Oh. I was pertaining to where I came from. :D

They are very strict about the mod's identity.. we were required to create another "persona" that is very much the opposite of our personality. We had a mod who answers like a man but in reality the mod is a woman :P

Being a mod is sometimes a blessing and a curse - blessing because you get to "meet" a variety of people where you can learn from them.. and a curse if most of the people online are jerks :D

Spoiler: 3/4 of those are correct.

Do I even dare ask what kind of forums those were? That sounds like some espionage action going down on the internet.

I suggest reading the opening post, it covers what they look for.

ok if you read the whole entire page of what it takes to be a moderator YOU ARE A LOSER
that is pretty well said and sums it all up ok and
you have to be mature or whatever to be a moderator ok so one of the first comments says oh you have to be 19.............
