    From what I've seen of the LPSG moderating team, you'll fit right in. :cool:

    Rob_E will announce when they need new moderators, at which time you apply for the position. I believe that happens in December...

    That is way toooo funny. I needed a good laugh today....

    My input- I was a mod. at one site, and the best thing to do is get alot of informative posts that help people or provide some good info on the subject. Once you've been here for awhile and done that, I would then keep asking the head mod. (Gillette maybe?) if I could become one...hope that helps!

    Gillette, the head mod?

    What a concept.

    To become a moderator you must kill a moderator. In doing so, you'll take his/her place. The cycle of life continues

    Ouch, Rob.

    Umm, hardly.
    And no, asking won't do anything.

    At present we are on our third wave of moderators. They had moderators once upon a time, then a period of none, then there was an enormous influx of new members which generated a call for moderators again. Many of those moderators asked to step down or had less opportunity to visit the site so the site owner, Rob_E, created a thread for applicants who were interested. The current group were selected from those applicants.

    From the most recent group we have had three step down. I don't know if Rob intends to keep the current number, expand or decrease or even eliminate the moderators entirely. If there is a call for more moderators Rob_E will likely either contact those he feels would be good for the site or he will have another application thread.

    Please don't send the mods PMs asking for the position, it isn't our call. And I daresay flooding Rob_E with requests will thrill him. It wouldn't thrill me.

    I didn't read what you wrote. Can I be a mod, Gillette? I was told to ask you.

    *snarls*
    *sighs*

    I guess so. I'd probably have found it funnier if I didn't resemble that remark.:wink:

    *Note to self. No fleshpiles with HugoB. (at least none without a thorough search of his person beforehand)

    He hangs out in the super-secret ubermod forum. I've heard rumors that you might be able to access it using certain web browsers by pressing Alt+F4 from the forum main index page.
