I know I've seen a few people who just got promoted to certain positions for this site, and was curious as to how GaG goes about choosing them? Do you have to be on here for a certain amount of time, is there a certain process you have to go through? I'm not interested, I was just curious. It's probably confidential, but I thought I'd still ask...

We extend the invitation to become a moderator to our top users on the site.
You can become a top user by logging in regularly, asking interesting, informational, and useful questions, as well as offering answers to other users. By doing so, you will accumulate Xper
points (the number in parentheses next to your user name). After you have shown a pattern of asking/answering questions (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.
Hint: The success rate of a user's reports on question/answers is an important criteria to be selected as a moderator. You can report unsuitable content by clicking on the Report link. All the reports are being 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 invite.
