As it turns out, this is a very common question, and is answered in the Kongregate FAQ

http://www.kongregate.com/pages/help#become

I need more information! Who appoints moderators? How are they selected? Why am I not a moderator, even though I’m the greatest person who ever lived? I must know!


The process is not perfect. We wish we could hire a team of psychologists to carefully analyze the chat logs on Kongregate, scouring for the best and brightest to help us keep the site sanitary.


As it turns out, the guy who appoints moderators is also the same person who launches challenges/achievements, writes the newsletter/FAQ, handles sponsorships, pays out contest winners, answers some email, etc. So please do not take offense if you’re a regular, long-time user on the site who’s always mature and courteous, but has never been noticed by the guy who appoints moderators. Also don’t take offense if you happen to be a pretty cool person who’s been deemed a little too rough around the edges to represent Kongregate as a moderator. Just because you’ve been passed over to do our work for free doesn’t mean we don’t still love you.


Realistically, most moderators are appointed after a private nomination by current moderators. Friendliness, maturity, and professionalism can go a long way in getting yourself nominated. Demonstrating a zealousness in promoting yourself to a moderator position will likely disqualify yourself entirely, as it makes us question both your motives and your maturity level.

Emphasis on the last paragraph.

Actually, that didn’t explain admin. It explains moderator status. If you work at Kongregate office, you will become an admin.

True, Being helpful and being nice are key points in becoming a mod.

i’ve sent a shout to greg but i’m not one.

Greg doesn’t give you the job of being a mod. by just begging, you have to try to get pick, examples; being nice, stopping trouble, being helpful, or just trying to be a mod. =P

begging to be a mod/admin decreases your chances greatly…

It most certainly is not the worst topic ever. It is a valid question. One that can be answered by following previous posts:

Well, to be an admin.

1. Get a job at Kongregate Offices
2. PROFIT!

Anyway…as for mod, this has already been answered.

I’ll never be a mod because

1. I am not friendly
2. I am not mature.
3. I am not proffesional.
4. I swear too much.
5. I spam a bit.

But anyway, I suggest deleting this topic and doing the stuff you’re supposed to do (in the last paragraph) if you want to be a mod. REMEMBER, if you want to be a mod for the banhammer alone, and not to serve Kong, think. Think long and hard.

It’s a Kind of Magic! Woo-ooo

As far as I can tell the admin question still hasn’t been answered, so here goes:

“Admin” isn’t a position you can get just by using the site. In order to become an admin, you’d need to be hired: Being an admin is a serious job, with a paycheck associated, and all that jazz. As it happens, Kongregate is still hiring for a position, and you can see the kind of thing that might be asked of prospective staff members here.

Does that help at all?

Asking is a sure fire way of ruining your chances. Why don’t you read the links provided first? They tell you everything you need to know including the part about asking to become one.

guys, bring nice doesn’t cut it. I would suggest marrying greg’s cousin, that would help. Buy seriously, mods are inhumanly nice, and the good ones (I.e. Arcanecoder) are basically always right. About EVERYTHING.
