Meh, I think everyone who isn't a Mod already wants to become one somewhere in their hearts. Humans have a undying need for power. xD

The main reason I would want to become a Mod is because I would be able to make the Forums a better place for the other members, and that I could prevent PC from being ruined by rulebreakers and spammers. As well as their being a Mod Lounge. xD

Why are you just kidding about the lounge? It's great... it's completely *mumblemumblemumble* *gets gagged by Andy and Erica* Oh well :P

For me, I wanted to become a mod, as at the time, I just wanted to be noticed by people. Earning a mod position would have at least made some people notice me, and stuff XD Now, I only want to become an S-Mod for the orange title, and to see the HQ. So what if I'll be able to ban people and stuff, I'll be orange <3<3 XD

Well, I'm not dying to become a mod. I really dont care if I become a mod, anymore XD


However, it would be pretty cool if I did. Make PC a better place, I would. Even though I wouldnt have that much power XD

I want to be a mod here someday and Im trying to work up to my goal. Im not doing if for any publicity, respect, or power. For me, the reason why I want to be a mod is to help out people, make the community a better place, keep nasty spammers out of here, and help out the community's other mods. Thats it basically but there are other reasons that I can't remember at the moment. Heck, if I was modded I would be the youngest mod on PC.

O.o; I need ... power! ^_^; Kidding. I'm not a ruthless power abuser like ... o.o;;

ACtually, I have a faint wanting of being a mod, but if I wanted to be one (dying), I guess It'd be just for being famous. O_o;;; Either that, or nothing.

I'd like to become a mod so I could get the evil SPAMmers out of here [I hate them. They clog up threads. o.o;], help people [Like I do now {I think}, just more so ^_^], to have the pwetty colored name [gray isn't my color...but it could be XD], and the ability to see Moderators' Lounge. [Man, if I think Andy's scary in the DCC, I don't know if I wanna see him in there. XD]

So yeah. Those are some of the reasons.

I would love to be a mod because the glory, the power, and the kindness given to me since IRL, I do not have such will at all. PC is like my home since I chat here mostly every hour, except midnight hours, homework hours, eating hours, working and going out hours! xD But they are seldomly half of what I spend at PC. I'd love to help others achieve their goals at PC and I'd love to be a known face for a while. I hope to make a better place of this PC by increasing the populations of the community and by making everyone feel positive that PC is our grand home. I hope to spark up everyone's lives with happiness and love. I will rid of the evil lurking in the community. =3

I wouldn't mind if I wouldn't be a mod since I already gained many friends here. There's already enough mods to not include me, anyways. ;_;
o.o I've noticed that Pokemon TCG has no mod.

I'm not dying to become a mod, but It'd be cool if I did...here are some reasons:
I can help PC
I get to have the last word in a spammer's thread since I'd close it
I'd get at least 1 MOTM vote (Man, even newbies get MOTM votes, yet I don't...)
Bigger PM Box
Mod Lounge access

I would wanna become a mod so that

1. I can help out the biggest Pokemon Communty more.
2. Be a bigger part of the community.
3. Because I would like the responsibility and to like to know that people would trust me with that responsibility.

I would only want to be one to help out others, I am not bothered about the bigger PM Box and stuff like that.

To put it simple..i'm getting freaked out be people getting banned for no reason..I'd guess I want to find out why..
Also because I have a dying need to tell everyone that I'm crazy..

I wanna be a mod so I can have that purty name XD Actually I always said I was gonna be a mod, but I never believed it myself ^^; I would just say that to play around and stuff since I knew a lot about anime but I didn't actually think I was mod material at the time...And here I am XD

Me, I honestly want to be a mod because I know that I could help PC. Though my area of expertise doesn't go far beyond the gameboy games, or roleplaying. However, I do believe that I could help PC more as a mod than I could a member. ^_^

Well, a reason I would ever want to become a mod is to make sites better and help out. And not to mention I mod so many other forums. And besides, the silver bold name and title is cool. But becoming a mod isn't really my most greatest desire.

Here are my reasons why I would like to be a moddie woddie someday. ^^

~ I get to help people more. ^_________^ I love to help out, and this way I can do that more often~!

~ I could be a bigger part of PC. ^^ It means a lot to me.

~ I would be able to destroy the ebil spammers~! Okay...a little bit of exaggeration there. XD

~ In the process, I would be able to meet some people that I havent talked to here before on PC. ^__________^

~ The mod lounge. XD *cough*

~ The pretty coloured name. =3 [Ish~ I like grey. =3]

~ I think I would be the youngest moddie. XD [Yes, great reason. I know. XP]

Although I know I probably wont be a moddie for a while, I still like to try to picture what it would be like. ^^ I wish everyone the best of luck while trying to achieve their goals~! <3<3<3

Now that I think about it, I never really thought I could be a mod in the first place. I would be like the young immature one in the group. xD
And I forgot all about those evil spammers. I'd want to put an end to spamming too. And not to mention actually proving to myself I can be a somebody.

Cherrim
February 12th, 2005, 02:10 PM
I think... I just wanted to be a mod in the first place because it meant that my skill and talent was recognized by the other mods/admins (which is basically all there was at the time of my modding XD). ^_^; I like being a mod because it gives me a chance to make a big difference and help out a lot. o_O No other reason, really.

But the thing I've noticed is... sometimes, when I join a forum, I just get this feeling like "I'm gonna be a mod" =o And then I get modded sometime later. I've only been wrong once. XD;

February 12th, 2005, 02:32 PM
Ill tell ya why xD, but i wont tell why *i* would want to be a mod, im gonna also tell ya what ive done, first of, id love to be a mod, id increase my activness, id be much happier, and id probably gain some more respect round here xD, id also like to be a mod at this time, because remember the mod style is silver?, well, take a look at my font, my sig, and my avy xD, anyways, ive reported alot in the past, ive reported spammers to arxcy and claire, ive reported n00b threads, meh, ive reported in lotsa forums, but maybe the n00b one the most, but still, if i was a mod, id still have to be upgraded to smod to ban, but meh, id still gain powers to lock threads etc. ive been told by others that im mod material, but really to say, i dont think im mod material as others do, but i guess so, meh, i dunno xP XD

Same reasoning as Erica. And I'm not copying her, I said this before in a thread that was similar to this once.

That and I get more access to Erica's posts.

I would like to become a moderator because I think I would be a good asset to help out with the community. I have been a member for almost a year and by now I know the rules very well. Over the past 11 months I have been very helpful in reporting illegal thread. I am very pleasant and active everyday.

Kylie-chan
February 12th, 2005, 02:57 PM
Oh, I'll admit it. XD ^_~ I'd like to be a mod [but I'm not dying to be one]. I mean... the pwetty name and profile, and the access to the mod lounge... but it might be a great maturing process. o.o Besides, I itch to lock all these threads that staff don't get to. XD I hate spam.

But, if I even ever had a chance, I blew it on Friday, so meh.

February 12th, 2005, 03:37 PM
When i saw this question , i coudnt stop thinking about the numerous things that members will say , mostly the idea of making the board better. But being myself ill expose my main reason.

Archieving the Mod Rank, for me will denote Respect,leadership,power etc. But The True meaning of this for me is : Become Well Known , if i become a mod , most certaindly ill be better known and that means = I have to be a good member, since i am supposed to set as an example. And that will make me more happy.

Thats about it . The color rank its a plus aswell as the larger pm box , which all of these are a must and not exactly a privilege by the task your leading on the board.

I have a question , does signature limit varies on Staff? If so , that will be a yay for me because i like to fade text.

Careful With That Axe, Pichu!
February 12th, 2005, 03:41 PM
Well, I'm not looking forward to be a mod, but my reason to be one would be the power to provide some kind of help that a normal member couldn't. So, if I could get the chance, I wouldn't complain XD;

Jeremy
February 12th, 2005, 03:44 PM

Signature limit do not increase. Its a size for all the board.

I never thought of being modded. I never really liked to be a mod, except that time when Shadow left and they were looking for mods and jeremy was teasing once when i asked him who would be a mod. He always said, "you never know" or soemthing like it. Then Jason made threads, litterarly asking to be a mod again, which got closed. I guess when the staff saw how he was hunger for power, they decided to mod someone else, and then I came into place. ^_^
I didn't mind the work and the hours it had to be put in since most of you know that I staretd forums like 8 tiems and i had to restart alot with features and all, so I guess tah twas used to me. I knew how to close/move/sticky and more. But yea its fun. But arduous

Unlike some of you, I don't base my time at PC around trying to become a mod. I have fun here. Sometimes I'm good, sometimes not. You can tell who wants to become a mod because they're trying to be perfect.

By the way, isn't PC supposed to be a place of fun? Some people forget that. They think that mods are like ruthless dictators. Sometimes they are. Mostly not, though.

Miyu-chan
February 12th, 2005, 10:39 PM
I've never really, really considered about being a mod until I witnessed a porn spammer on the old PC.
I was one of the only members that were online at that time, and there was only one mod on. After witnessing havoc on this board, I decided that I wanted to contribute my power and time into making this community a safer, more enjoyable place for everyone.

And here I am now. =D

Why do you want to become a mod?

I think becoming a mod isn't about making PC a better place, well it is in a sense but becoming a mod has SO much responsibilities and you have to know what your doing or talking about (example:Kenny is a mod at other cards BECAUSE he knows so much about card games, he's very knowledgeable at not only Magic The Gathering but he's also well rounded in Yu-Gi-Oh and Duel Masters, because we can't have a mod knowing ONE of the card games but not the rest) so being a mod isn't just having silver-borders all over your name (and for those who became a mod for the silver-borders are a disgrace to PC), it's about what you know and how helpful you can be to the people who visits where you mod.
As for me, I'd like to become a mod because I would like to accept the responsibilities of being one and I have something to prove.

I think that people wanna be mods cause they want to have power over other users and can have power but that's not a good reason if you offer something for the Forum like a coding experience or php experience you could probably be a good mod or you could offer your power's of finding bad posts and finding mean People or Swearers (I reccomend you do not do that or else say bye-bye to your chance at moding if you have one)
so please don't make mods mad and follow the rules cause I have had tons of headackes seeing people Break rules and I know how it feels to be frustrated alot cause people are bothering you and that's what happens to Popular mods and users so please spare us and don't break the rules okay

It took me this long to notice that I haven't given my reason yet. o.o; Meh. I didn't really want to become a mod for any reason, other than to stop the spammers. (If you've ever been to the Emulation forum, you'll know what I mean.) But I didn't try for it. I just acted like myself (*ahem* XD), and eventually, I found myself modding MCG. Um, yeah. And before you go shooting your mouth off saying how I'm corrupted, I'd like to see proof of your experience(s) as a mod elsewhere, Lance.

Well, seeing as I'm already a mod, I only wish to contionue being a mod. But, I shall tell you the tale of my desire to become a mod. XD

Well, I had come from the forums of SPPf. There are tons of members there and a lot of moderators too. We were constantly nagged at by the mods there that we shouldn't really try to become a mod, since there were so many already. ^^;;

So, when I joined PC, I didn't think much of becoming a mod. Basicall,y from my SPPf background, becoming a mod seemed impossible. Well, until I spoke to Jeremy (PIKA2) and he told me it wasn't that hard to become a mod, my hopes kinda rose. =)

Well, I still thought it would be cool to be a mod. You get more PM space, a cool looking username, plus the chance to really contribute to gelping PC be a better forum than it already is. ^^

Once I became a mod I was all "Woooot, time to boogie on down!!" XD I guess the real reason I wanted to become a mod was just because of the chance to help out more than I could already. <3 Gah, who am I kidding, teh Mod Lounge pwns all. XD
