Then DON'T ASK!

We love that you love Armor Games enough to try to become a moderator or that you want extra points for writing a great review but we will not make you a moderator or give you a merit if you ask.

Why?

Because we choose our moderators by selecting members of the community who are responsible, mature, and contribute in great ways to the site. We watch in our own eyes and suggest to each other who should become the next mod. If you say to us "hey, I want to be a mod!" you are hurting this process because we want to choose based on qualities of users we need... leadership, responsibility, maturity, respect, and dedication to make the site awesome. Saying "I should be mod!" makes us think twice... mod material comes from people who SHOW US they can be a mod, not ASK US.

So don't:
Ask a mod to make you a moderator on the site.
Ask an admin to make you a moderator on the site.
Suggest a user to become a moderator on the site.

As for merits, we don't want you shoving your merits in our faces. We have quite a few people scouring the site looking for awesome comments to merit so if you wrote something good most likely it will be found. If it isn't found, that isn't to say you didn't do something great for the site. People who write lots of good comments end up becoming mods as well, so maybe you won't get the merit but you might get something even better!

So help the site by being good Armor Games users, but let us choose the next mods and merits on our own accord.

Thanks!

Well I would enjoy to be a moderator and I think that this really helps me to see what I have to do to really be noticed as a moderator. Thank you for making this John, I really appreciate it.

Well Graham, I actually didn't say anything about, &quotlease make me a mod". All that I said is that I would enjoy being a mod if I were to be chosen. Even if I am never chosen as a mod, I will always help the mods and help AG to become a better site.

So please don't go around posting false accusation comments. If you would have looked at my comment closely you could see that there was nothing about asking to be a mod.

^^Hey guys chill. You guys are just bickering over nothing. There is no need to pick out someone wanting/liking to be a mod. It just isn't necessary.....

yes you did not actually say &quotlease make me mod" and i know that that's specifically why i said read between the lines

and i think have enough experience to point accusations
i used to host a online game (for 6 months) almost EVERY1 wanted to be mod or admin so after reading all those suck-up topics in my forum i think i can tell if someone is just complimenting and saying that they would 'enjoy' being a mod

and finallyyyy you said "be noticed as a moderator"
"I would enjoy to be a moderator" - obvious
"I think that this really helps me to see what I have to do"

Thanks but trust me, this will not come through for some people. What you should do is threaten to suspend the people asking for merits for a few days. And you should do the same for people who ask to be a moderator. But thanks anyway!
