Those people probably have at least 1000 posts, you get a title with that count. ;) There are a few mods that have below 1000 though.

Don't webservers get custom titles too?

how do you get to become a MOD

I'd like to know how some here became a mod. I'm still surprises that types like Eets and DarthFergie became mods ... spammers of old.

I guess they make a list of the heavy posters and than pick random.

Losing a mod status is pretty hard too it seems. You can leave the forum for months and still stay a mod, post 50 posts and then leave again for some months ... without doing anything 'mod'-ulair.

mods also have the powers to attach files. A power they only use for their personal entertainment, never for modding purposses. (I've already stated once that they should drop that from mods too ... they wouldn't listen).

In short: Spam a lot and you can become mod, attach a few files to your post and then drop by once in a while.

In very short: You should just hate mods.

Absolute short: ;)

as for our ability to attach files, It's a perk that you get. :)

hehe, perks of the job rule. :D Plus we get our own forums to poke fun of you regular users... or, wait, maybe those are for mod-ly business, I forget which.. ;) :p

What type of personality does it take to become a mod? Becuase it seems pretty fun dealing with trolls and getting admired at.......

Well atleast people seem to admire you! ;)

Well I admire you, you seem like pretty cool guys moderating these forums for no cash at all.... [Nudges administrator with elbow] :D

Shouldn't there be moderators for some of the JKII.net forums?
The Technical Help and Dedicated server forums seem to have the same mod listed. Unless the super uber global mods can mod in all forums...

There's quite a few threads that arise in the Technical section relating to 'cracked' software which are left open for quite some time or are even still left open. :(

Yeah,you'd have to be waiting after me though.

I was hoping to be a mod before even Obi was a mod..:p

How could you possible use file attachments for "modding purposes"?! Force spammers to d/l viruses and "ban" them for good? :D

Attatchments are more heavily used in the staff & private forums so that staffers can share files with other staffers without having to upload somewhere.

Well one example is that we often take a printscreen of forum trollers and then post it in the Private Mod Section. I hope that helps. Personally I don't believe I have ever seen a mod or admin abuse the file attachment function.:rolleyes:



groovy, not nice with the attachment

Yeah, oss, it really isn't worth asking; I actually had a guy ask me if he could be a mod after two posts, obviously not realising that not only would it not help (sorry, too many "not"'s), but that I have little to no influence on that kind of decision anyway. Besides, you're only about 60 posts off being able to choose your own title; I've been able to change mine since EscapeMI moved to Lucasforums, and I was only made mod last month.
I didn't know I could add attachments :) How would I go about doing that?

Exactly, thats a private joke between me and Rouge Nine as well as the rest of the admin and supermods! I have a very dry sense of humor, but none of it escapes Rouge Nine, and he has been my greatest supporter in the most difficult of time. He even supported my modship openly and publicly. I posted the pic for the sheer joke of it, I will go to just about any lenghth for a good joke. As far as i'm concerned Rouge Nine could instult my mother, and I still would not do a damn thing about it. Besides he know's I come from a family full of perpetual smart asses! :p

*sigh*

First of all, asking them brings down your chances. Making a thread brungs down your chances even more. Ask Tyion, he knows. :D

Second of, when they choose a mod, they choose someone who is on alot, is helpful, and is not being a jerk to everyone.

From what I've seen of your posting (of which the above is a prime example), you haven't even the slightest chance of becoming a mod.

Just my personal opinion.
