Just a quick question regarding if it has to be earned or applied for :)
Thanks!

No, moderators are chosen from a section's active users, that is, if there's a need for moderators in that section.

Thought so! :)
Thank you very much sir!

No problems. There's also much more that they also look at, such as how users behave around others and whatnot, but that's being really general. They put a lot of effort into choosing their staff and make sure that they have what it takes.

Yeah for sure!
A moderator without respect is clearly not what they're looking for.

OH, and I also have another question.
I noticed Super moderators. I guess to earn that you just need to be active, helpful and respectful. Correct?

Since there really is no section designated for you to moderate.

yes but they're promoted from moderators if deemed worthy they're not chosen from the memberbase

however I sent shenanigans a picture of me in the princess leia slave bikini and I hope my efforts are successful

Super moderators pick up the slack and also decide with administrators on promotions. Their criteria is a stiffened version of that for moderators.

Usually the staff will solicit moderator promotions and do higher promotions without warning. That seems to be the standard operating procedure here.

Yeah, I get that applying to be a moderator wouldn't work, as I proposed that but we got reasons why that wouldn't be such a good idea.

Since most of the forums that were once mod-less (at least for official mods) now have mods filling in for super mods, guess that answers that.

I like to think of it as, you are sending in an application for moderator when you are active and contributive to a forum for an extended period of time. Moderator applications simply wouldn't work because then everyone would apply. Higher staff pay close attention to each section and know exactly when someone is ready and would be a great choice for moderator. They don't need applications telling them what they already know ;)
