Do you think that there should be a poll for people to vote of people to become moderators. The people that could vote would be people with 6000 points or above. To keep away hackers and spammers.

I like the system we have. Hand picking moderators is a much better way to know we are getting good mods for the site, rather than a mass-vote which may get sloppy or controversial.

I like this idea but the only thing is not many users have over 6000AP maybe 2500AP would be better.And if course NO voting for yourself.

And you can only vot once. And the people that make the poll get to select the people that should be the ones running. Oh, and the first one that 200 people say yes to, gets to be the mod.

Hmmmm, I'm not sure this would work unless they hand-picked every voter and candidate so they knew they weren't getting false results, but it is much easier and reassuring to them if they hand pick them, so I think they will probably stick with the system they have now, it just would cause to much of a problem if they changed it.

When will there be more mods and do they need to pass a test?

It would be much too biased this way. Most members do not know what's best for them and who the best person to chose would be. Most of the 6000 and over members aren't the best nominees for mod either.

The thing is that we can have a hoax and someone will get everyone or try to get everyone to vote for one person. Moderators aren't tempted so that is the best system. If we could make sure no one can be bribed or anything, possible idea later on.
