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.
I have no idea, honestly I think there were a few who abused it a while ago... and they seem to have disappeared. Now I think the people left are the logical ones who know where the line is, even if people do still complain. Because lets face it, there's always someone who will be unhappy.
anyone can ask to be a mod, but there are some criteria. You have to be of well spoken behavior and be neutral in your decisions and stuff. They on their part report all the stuff to the admins and they decide if a question or answer should be taken off for being to abusive and stuff or just don't contribute to the site.
Well, that pretty much leaves me out, for I am a total troll hahahaha. I have the removed answers to prove it. I will add that I have given some great and honest answers that have contributed to the site I hope. So, I guess I has to stand for something positive.
I was a Moderator for 2.5 years on a gaming forum and the criteria was just be active, helpful, and mature and they'd contact you when they needed someone.
Keep in mind, being a Moderator isn't as glamorous as it sounds. Constantly having to deal with trolls especially those that constantly question your decisions can be pretty frustrating. You would need some pretty thick skin to be one.
