This is only speculation on my part, but the mods are sequestered in chambers filled with life-sustaining fluid with a myriad of wires surgically implanted directly to the brain.

This is what you want?????

Mods are all volunteers.

The best way to NOT ever become a mod, though, is to ask if you can be one.
The best way is to be a good and active member.

yeah you could be a paid mod .
maybee if you offerd the site owner a crazy good resume. im talkn CRAZY good !
but i do belive its mostly voluntary...

i never understood that whole "if you say you wanna be mod , you cant be a mod" mentalty?!
whats up with that ?
any mods or administration care to elaborate?

The mods do a good job since i joined ATS
it can be a stressfull work to always respect the rules and tried to remain profesionnal
they are the image of the site .. the responsabilities most be enormous
especially on a conspiracy site that is probably under strick surveillance
so if one day i was offered to become a mod

My answer would be Hell NO

way to much trouble and responsabilities
i like having not to watch every words i type

most are volunteer or paid with ATS points

Sorry to burst anybody's bubble -

We are not paid - nor are the radio staff - we do it for the love of the community and the fun of it

I take my payment in the form of the good times we all have on here - and the fact that the site owners don't charge anyone to be here, or pester me to buy DVD's, Subscription TV shows, choose their sponsors products etc (unlike other sites I could name)

To reply - and put simply - anyone who wants to be a mod and pesters to be one probably has an agenda they want to push or an axe to grind.

That would be my take anyhow

i could see that i guess just seems like a silly rule of thumb.
i can image there are some folks here that are a great fit for the coveted position, who want nothing more than to be on the team of a community thay have come to love. But just vocaliseing it because thay think it shows a certain leardership type trait.
idk
things seem to have worked out so far so I guess it works. but it just seems silly to dissmiss willing members just becuas they expresed intrest
just saying

What's this "paid" thing, you speak of?

Actually, I don't know that I'd want to be paid for doing this... I do it because I've had a tremendous amount of fun on ATS, both before and after I became a mod, and this is a way to pay it back, at least a little.

I know you all are closely monitored. (With the probes and all) If you're trapped, just give me a T&C violation for yes, or a "quote is too long" warning for no.

They have a special Mod Forum Area, I'm sure.

I was a mod over at EBWF few years ago

Your pay is access to the comedy gold mine known as the trash bin.

Why in GODS name would you want to???
Honestly?

Go to your local mall and fill out an application to be a security guard.
At least you'll get a shiny badge.

Mods occasionally get laid but that usually has nothing to do with the job. Money....never happen.
