    Curious, what are Mods doing??

    What is it to be a Moderator. Do they sit around all day and monitor this site, along with others maybe? Is this their "Day Job"? do they also work on the site? Improvements?

    I really dont know so that is why i am asking. What qualifications allow one to Moderate a site like this?

    these are thoughts in my head, questions really. Any response concerning this career choice would be much appretiated.

    Do mods need to know how to spell? if so, that counts me out.

    You never know when you're going to see us on. Sometimes I'm tempted just to leave the site open on my PC so everybody thinks I'm always on.

    You have to be very mean.

    On.

    It's APPRECIATED, not "appretiated".

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that moderators moderate.

    Thanks!

    I figure it's okay for [potential] mods to have a sense of humor...if I make mod, all that will stop.

    What I find funny about this whole thread is the original post. The guy actually thinks moderating is a career choice lol

    why cant it be a career choice?

    Dont the moderators here abandon all sorts of income to keep the peace here just because they enjoy helping others?


    Or is it some sort of power trip?

    No, you see, I think this guy thinks it's like a real job, where you GET income.

    From what I can gather most large sites do pay their mods.

    Just not this one, it's too cutting edge
