We extend the invitation to become a Moderator to our top users who create quality content on the site. Reporting content against site rules and achieving a high success ratio in reporting is also very important.
You can become a top user by logging in regularly, posting interesting, informational, and useful Questions/myTakes, as well as offering Opinions to other users. By doing so, you will accumulate Xper points. After you have shown a pattern of posting Questions and/or Takes and sharing your Opinions (showing your ability to communicate clearly, give sound advice, and offer valuable information) and have made yourself a regular user on the site, we will consider you as a Moderator. Once you have done this, please contact us.
Hint: The success rate of a user's reports is an important criteria to be selected as a Moderator. You can report unsuitable content by clicking on the gray flag from any post. All reports are evaluated by the admins and the success rate on reports by every user is calculated by the system automatically. A user with a high percentage of success rate on reports is more likely to get a Moderator invitation
I don't think it's really in your hands, you can only prove yourself to be a good, worthy member of this community, you can only do your part but in the end it's not in your hands if you can choose to become a moderator or not. I don't think so, if the site admins consider making you a mod, then you are lucky otherwise there isn't much you can do.
Nowadays it just like giving a child a candy, they will sure
You gotta report questions that are legit and worthy of reporting. They probably also look at your history in terms of how many comments or questions you got deleted. I know they used to every year do a vote by the gagers as to who should be new male and female mods. That doesn't include them picking mods throughout the year. They do that too.
