Some questions I should have asked a while ago:

1)At what time does somebody get to pick out their custom title?
2)I'll never qualify, but how do you become a moderator?

Thanksss in advance.

1) You don't. Custom titles are granted by the administration. You can, however, get a custom title by misbehaving badly (Canned, BANNED), or through some other means.

2) I really don't know. I'd imagine there would have to be a need for another moderator, and a clean track record would probably help.

The admins give custom titles to those they feel deserve it. Generally, the admin picks it as well.

There is a rumor that circulates every now and again that a custom title is obtained through a satanic ritual involving cheesecake.

But it's just a rumor, right?

Heh. I like actually knowing what that was about.

Erm... no, I didn't say anything. Why would you imply that I knew something?

Posting in Title threads is bad karma.

1) No one gets to pick out their own custom title except *i and Drakefyre. Getting one mostly requires that you be a member for long enough to make a few thousand posts.

Or do something notably cool or retarded. The former gets you a title like Cartographer or BoE Posse. The latter gets you Canned.

2) Moderator positions are typically not available due to a hard UBB maximum of 4 moderators for any individual board. Reliability, respectability, membership in secret cabals, and being in the right place at the right time all help.

Try posting. A lot. About everything. At least 30 times a day. With perfect grammar. And no misspellings.

Oh, and be helpful and stuff too. :)

I can neither confirm nor deny that my title has anything to do with cheesecake. :P

Considering the last mod compiled a massive database about these forums, it really helps to have something on the other mods. Not that I'm implying that Aran did anything underhanded since he may have just used old fashioned bribery to gain his position.

So just send me model number, color and delivery information so you can get yours.

I'm not actually interested in being a moderator, frankly. I just wouldn't be comfortable with that kind of power.

Actually, you've just brought up the Satanic rituals. See, there is this semi-regular rite known as an "election" that happens when the stars are properly aligned. Your chances are much better if you basicaly meet the criteria that the other mods and admins have. Actually, you'd better have some of them, because no matter how many votes a spambot gets it will receive no delegation of power.

—Alorael, who is personally of the opinion that Alcritas should have been made Misc. mod no matter how many votes he didn't receive or how much presence he did not have here. In fact, it would be wholly fitting to create a new Misc. forum on which nobody could post just to make Alcritas a mod.

Bwahahaha the power to... to... lock threads! And to edit posts! And to hang out in the Krazy Kwilting Korner!

It's good to be king I mean moderator.

Don't let Kel fool you. Mods have several powers beyond those. We just generally don't exercise them because they aren't necessary except in certain special or extreme circumstances.

For when the boards flood. Haven't you been reading?

Actually the panic button was disconnected long ago, but left behind to reassure mods who think there is something at the other end.

As a note of warning, Randomizer has no influence whatsoever on the process of choosing moderators.

Since he is not a mod.

Unlike some others.
