Hey all,

Just viewing another thread, and on there it was said that we have staff from right here in Australia.

Just was wondering who? The only one I know of closest to our great land is Alien, the Super Mod from NZ.

Do we have any other Mods or staff from our great brown land or nearby? Just curious.

Lmao its true anyway, but really if there isn't an Aussie mod then shouldn't we be pushing for one? How do you become a mod anyway?

You get asked by staff. If you ask, you don't get. I was just more curious than anything to see. Many of the Mods I know are either in the US or UK, with some in Sth Africa and Canada (that I know of).

It doesn't bother me if we don't have an Aussie representative on staff, I was just curious after that comment to see if we have any Mods or staff nearby.

Oh ok, well I thought you would make a good mod Templar.

Yeah you get asked, don't bother asking them or you'll be disappointed by the answer.

The way I think it happens (I'm just guessing here) is that admin and mods make suggestions for a candidate list - then each candidate's history is scrutinised and after unsuitables are whittled away they then take a vote on say 5. Those people are then asked if they would like to become mods and if they refuse then that's that, but if not then they become brand new mods that we all have to buy a cake for.

Yes, cake.

If I'm correct there are at least two mods from Australia. Out of respect for their privacy, I will not reveal who they are. If they want to raise their hands and confess, I'll leave it up to them.

Actually I think I know who you are talking of, but in case I'm wrong I'll also keep my trap shut until they raise their hands!

OK thanks. It is nice to know we have Australian representatives on staff, and I hope they do come forth and reveal themselves, it would be kinda cool

At the moment I'm happy just being a Writer and a member. If they asked me? Not sure, it would be something to consider, although I have heard a few horror stories from Mods that would make me think twice about it. Besides, with under a thousand posts, I don't think I would be up for consideration anytime soon. Although, in my favour is I spend too much damn time here....

I am going to admit something here. Apart from the occasional restart to unclog resources, ATS has been a permanently open TAB on my Firefox now since shortly after I joined over 4 years ago. All other webpages come and go, but the trusty old MyATS page is always there hehe.

P = Post count
F = Flag count
S = Star count
W = WATS rating (Way AboveTopSecret)
K = Karma rating

Cheers I never knew that but what does the rank and karma thing mean?

To be 100% honest I used to know but I can't fully remember. I am fairly sure the WATS has to do with access to the RATS forum (Really AboveTopSecret) and also your relative ranking on ATS, and the Karma is just a fancy rating system with a complex math equation behind it.

I could be completely wrong though, I am sure there is a thread on ATS somewhere which clarifies this.....I'll take a looksie....
