So, I have just found out that I have reached Xper level 6, which is good :) I got an email from GAG saying: "You’re knowledgeable, dedicated, and you know the rules. Your GirlsAskGuys experience qualifies you to apply for moderator status."
So, I have some questions about this. Mods, how often do you use your power over opinions/questions? Do you feel like you have responsibility? Does anything happen if you don't do your job? Can you lose your moderator status? If so, how? Feel free to add anything you think might be informative :D
Honestly, looking at the questions I've asked, I don't think I deserve it. But I'd like to do somehting to keep this site how it is, even if it is only a small thing.
I was Asked through a Message from GAG a year ago, @Doffydood about being a moderator. However, I thought I was going to have to be hooked at that hip here, dear, and I politely declined because with doing what I do right now, I feel more comfy with no strings attached. Good luck. xx
Being a moderator is pretty easy. If you're a active user... you don't really consider it a job. Since you're spending most of your time on this site anyway, you're bound to see things that need to be removed (so there's no real hassle at all).
You can lose your moderator status if you do not fulfill the requirements (moving X amount of posts per month). You can also lose your status if you become a active member.
Do it. It's a good thing! You can keep us all in line and clean up the site a little

It's not really a power thing it's more about removing things you would report anyway. So doing it is really anything different except the items you report get removed from the site until the admin has a chance to decide if it should be permanently removed.
If you don't do your job of removing or reporting so many posts a month you can lose your status.
I don't think it is that hard. Sometimes there are things that are borderline and not sure if you should remove. Before I do that in those cases I just check with an admin before removing it. I think it's important to keep in good contact with the admins on the site to make sure to keep things uniform on the site.
