    to be honest i feel that very few of us qualify

    i mean i got flare mad enough at me to add me to his ignore list or ignore me altogether and i'm obviously a shitty candidate (not at all sarcastic, I hate being a moderator >_>)

    several others here aren't cut out for it

    there's a few on the top of my heads who should already be modded

    I do tend to get a little pissy, but for the most part I try to stay neutral and helpful. There are definitely some people that are more qualified than others though. But hey, it might not even happen. We just have to wait and see.

    A high post count and/or someone who's funny and glamorous shouldn't automatically qualify them to be a moderator. Usually, they just amass a bunch of pals and followers who flatter them a lot, while these people get special pardon and bias treatment from those mods, like when they get into fights with other members of the forum for example. I was a mod once on a former GW1 elite fansite, and I've seen these things happen on a regular basis. Actually, you don't even need to be a mod to see that many don't know how to do their job correctly.

    That's something that happens with every leadership role anywhere. It's hardly specific to forum interactions. Obviously pure activity is not a good filter for picking mods. Someone easily be very active and very toxic. The actual quality of their content needs to be taken into account as well. Overall, mods need to try to remain somewhat separate from the community. It's ok to be a part of the community and active, but keep the boundary of professionalism.

    welcome to forums

    so many moderators do their jobs poorly

    so many

    Only requirements to be a moderator is a sense of "pure" judgment. That's it. Obviously there are secondary factors such as activity, but then everything else becomes negligible.

    I think you also need to know how to work a moderator CP, though I don't know what type of forum this is to tell you which.

    vBulletin.

    EDIT: the admincp/modcp directory has changed here, it's not /admincp/index.php or /modcp/index.php, qq

    either that or htaccess wins again

    It depends sometimes you need that funny easy going mod who is always around to remind people that there are mods and that sometimes they bring down the hammer on injustice. To me long as you know when to do you job how you act should not matter.
