Donation has nothing to do with being a staff member. You earn the job for a certain forum if the higher staff think you're good for the job. Read the FAQ for more info.

Moderators are chosen by the current staff to look over a section, one they're active and helpful in I'm assuming, and supporters donate money.

Pretty sure to become a moderator the higher staff would need to deem you fit in said area based on what you bring to the table i.e. the reports you send, the activity you generation, the way you conduct yourself through out the site as a whole, obviously how active you are. I can't speak for them but I assume that is a couple of the qualities they evaluate you one. As for as becoming a Supporter this Donations and Supporter Benefits should answer everything or most of what you need to know about becoming one. Basically you donate money to the site and inform Rukario that you are donating or you wouldn't get any supporter benefits out of it.

Members can also become supporters by participating in certain forum-wide events that give out supportership as a prize. I got a part of mine from winning a contest and another part from someone else donating for me, so yeah, even if you don't have the means to donate yourself you can still become a supporter.

FAQ: How do I become a moderator?

Moderators are chosen by higher staff for a section that needs a staff member to watch over it. No donation involved. *gestures to myself for a personal example*

Supporter
So you want to become a supporter

Supporters give the forum money in any of the ways detailed in the above link. They get benefits.

If you read through both links, you'll have a better idea as to what each position entails and how members become them. That should help, and feel free to keep asking questions if need be.

Moderators are chosen by the higher staff as needed. From what I understand, deliberations are secret to other members.

It's probably best for members not to make threads like this. When I was new, I asked the same thing and got flamed. A lot of people mistake asking how one becomes a moderator with requesting to become one.

I'm pretty sure Supporter status doesn't matter, although many moderators are also supporters since they love this place. For that to be the way, or to even influence the decision, of becoming a moderator would be bribery, though.

To become a Supporter, you can either donate money yourself, receive a gift from another forum member, or win it as a prize through an event. Supporters get many perks that normal members don't get, even if though they aren't members. This includes a personal blog and access to an exclusive subforum.

I want to become a supporter, but I don't like donating.

Is it true if you win an event you can also gain supporter status?

This is indeed true. Hiroshi Sotomura and a few other staff members, host events every now and then that give out prizes of a cetain amount of money to the winner. This is used to give them a supporter status. If you hunt around, you'll find one somewhere soon. It's usually announced as an 'announcement' and most of the time be showed at the top of a section or as a sticky just below.

Someone could also send you a supporter status as a gift as well.

How do you receive supporter status as a gift?

How can someone send you supporter status as a gift? Do they nominate you or something?

Please tell me!

People donate money just as normal, however they specify that they want the perks to go to another user.

Someone may decide to donate money and give the benefits to you instead of themselves.

You receive a support status gift as (mentioned from my last post) by winning a prize in a competition/event or from another member who is willing to give you some of their money to become a supporter. You receive such gifts from other members in the forms of gift cards. You can visit here for more information on receiving a gift from somone: http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=181381&highlight=community+gift+cards

A supporter is the blue italics username you get when you donate money to PC, or win a contest. This also gives you features like profile background pictures and a blog, depending how much you donate.

A moderator--people with bold blue usernames--basically look after a section of PC. For instance, Giradialkia is moderator of the emulation section. Sydian is moderator of Pokemon gaming central and like a gazillion other sections.
A moderator must make sure that their section is free of SPAM, and is kept active.
Moderators are chosen by the people with orange, red and green usernames. You can become a moderator if you are active in a certain section, and don't break the rules.

EDIT: Read this http://www.pokecommunity.com/blog.php?b=9060

Thanks Curious, can you actually ask a supporter to do it for you?

Once a donation is done, it sticks to that account. You can't transfer donation amounts to other accounts. You can ask anyone to donate for you, if you'd like, but that isn't very polite unless you're close to them.

Like, if the supporter is among your contacts/friends list?

You can, but I'd doubt anyone would do it for you if you ask. And like PY said, it's pretty impolite.

Quote originally posted by Hikari10:

Yup. They can't transfer their own donations to you if they already donated.

So does that mean they have to donate more to help the user in question wanting to become a supporter?

If someone wishes to donate for another person, they will. They'd have to donate more money in order to do so though.

Yes. If someone wants to give you donation credit of any kind, it'll have to be through a new donation. Like I said, donations can't be transferred from person to person. They aren't even transferred (usually!) from someone's main account to a new one that they created.

Quote originally posted by LightOfTruth:

That usually isn't a donation at all. No money goes towards the cost of the upholding of the site. Things like that are usually simply a prize.
