1. Never ask to be a Mod

2. Never EVER put "Second Line" or "2nd Line" in a post

and finally

3. NEVER ask to be one...

Just for the record, despite rumors to the contrary, sacrificing a goat, in a pentagram, chanting all the moderators and admins names in Latin, while dressed as a ballerina does not work.

I tried twice and NOTHING.

Isn't that like asking how do some folks get their eyebrows to grow together?

Or, how do you get selected for Special Education classes?

So far, even the Mods don't seem to know . . .

Don't be shy....

Tell them about the pink and green spandex with knee high boots all the "Super" Mods are required to wear.

Now I'll admit that on a female that wouldn't be bad looking
but on the guys.

Ah what a sweet sweeet thing for you to say, but alas, you well know that "I" would be a sore choice as members would surely see my Moderator badge be the only one with warnings from time to time and I have never been known to be consistent nor able to hold my tongue.

I have wondered if or when they would ask 'you'... really, you are present but private and have proven yourself to be able to be fair and open minded in subjects that go against your personal views.

I think the most recent requirement for being a mod is to have cracked the password to the wikileaks encrypted file.

Submitting a picture of a NON BLURRY UFO qualifies.

Also, sending in authentic nano thermite iron sphere's to ATS approval department.

Also if you can make cool _javascript link bars (I kid.)

You really don't want to become a mod... You will eventually fall victim to corruption as power will do that to you.

You will become evil and if you might make it as a super mod... even the most sincerest apology will not by accepted.

+ You still need to wear that yellow and green spandex for infinity...

Save yourself.... RUN !!!

Gah, Heff, you did it all wrong!

It's sacrificing a ballerina, in a pentagram, chanting all the moderators and admins names in Reptilian, while dressed as a goat!

No one speaks Latin anymore...

I was only asked two questions.
the first one was, do I have a life?
I answered no and that led to the second question.

I will tell you all the reasons why I should never be a mod.
1.I like to annoy others on occassion.
2.I sometimes derail threads,but not on purpose
.
3.I don't know how to embedd videos.
4.I just learned how to copy and paste this year.
5.I forget the rules and have to have a refresher course.
6.I don't know how to do avatars,a friend made mine.
7.I type with one finger on my keyboard.
8.I don't drink alcohol,that right there is enough to disqualify me.
9.I would probably become power hungry and want more.
10.I would be too tempted to run some off the board.
Remember the star trek episode about Lt.O'Riley singing?

I heard a rumour on some other forums that ATS moderators are born and not chosen. They are kind of like a internet nerd version of Highlander characters.
Decision are immortal and they decapitate many a post.



And, it is all in the name of good.

I'm just guessing here, but it is probable that one would have to [not only] be in possession of THIS [but also] be able to decode it correctly.

Well, I have it on good authority that the main qualification is that you must be very

very

very

GoodLooking.

Clearly, not the case.

I cannot do avatars, I am technologically challenged, I derail more often than not, I am only good for one line and I disagree with all the big conspiracies.

Like my parents used to say when I was growing up, I was a mistake.

No clue how I ended up here. Wait, yes, I do. That rum soaked ritual with the magenta smoke high in the hills overlooking that volcano in jogjakarta had something to do with it.
