If you can get through this...

...you might be considered for moderator. I can't tell you what the next level entails. It is forbidden to speak of it.

The second phase cant be spoken of as it involves 5 T&C violations

It must be super-secret. We have yet to hear from a single Moderator or Super-Moderator on this. How many ARE there anyway?

Or did we already hear from them, but we were forced to take the "eye exam" afterwards? The last thing I remember is a little girl with quantum physics books...

Did ATS contact them? or vice-versa?


They contacted me. I don't know the criteria... but I suppose it has to do with posting history and respecting the T&Cs of the board, but I really have no idea.



Do Moderators get any special perks or remunerations for their moderation?


No. Unless it's changed since I was a mod. LOL! (If so, I want back in!) I stopped because I simply wasn't enjoying my experience of ATS as much - as a mod as opposed to as a member. It's a big responsibility and I found myself self-censoring, because I didn't want to be a jerk. I stepped down and it was all cool.

I think super moderators are mods who have earned their red cape.

Well if this website is ran like every company I've ever worked for , then they just find the least qualified people and put them in charge.


I really wanted to give you a star for that LOL

Well just for fun I'll take a stab as to the difference between moderator and super,

My guess is a moderator is assigned to a specific forum or several forums, while a super would be able to moderate site wide.

Let's see how close I am lol

The only way to get a reaction of a mod is.....make a wrong reply :-)

Hi,
I've often wondered how ATS chooses it's moderators and then, what actually differentiates a 'Moderator' from a 'SUPER Moderator'?
I've been on ATS for some time now, and seen members become mods.
Did ATS contact them? or vice-versa?
And why aren't truly legendary members such as Phage or Beezzer at least moderators, given their widespread popularity, expertise and experience from years of contributions to ATS?

Do Moderators get any special perks or remunerations for their moderation?

Perhaps some Moderators or Super Moderators could share their experience.

Thanks. I am assuming other members probably share my curiosity regarding these questions.


From what I understand, it is largely based on your reputation, account age, number of posts/comments and by invitation only.. and if I remember correct when I once asked that same question directly of a moderator.. I was told that it's kind of put up to a vote and I don't know if the process has changed..

But you're suggested, considered and it's a group decision .. I am purely speculating after that but I imagine you probably have a probation period.

I'm pretty sure that's it, I read it not long ago while surfing around one night (because I was curious). The supers have the ability to roam.

I think you have to go a week without pissing off a mod.

Pretty sure I've made it to 5.

Why did you stop, Night Star? Was it for a limited time only?


We are going back many years here. The forums have either closed or died down or I wanted to spend more time here and not have to worry about another place. Just recently was asked to be a mod elsewhere, but I can't leave my precious time here. LO I'm addicted.

All the best mods here have an edge to them that does not go unappreciated. It shows and its a very good thing IMO. So beezzer....... you would do well I think !
