i would never ban anyone xD
and also i’m wondering, do you get offered modship and have the option to decline, or do you just log in and you see a big shiny M =P

Usually Administration will send you a whisper through your profile saying you’ve been chosen to receive a modship and you can accept or decline at that point.

I’ve been curious about this, ever since the whole ‘8 millionth user’ thing came up. Obviously there’s not 8 million active users on the site, but growth is clearly accelerating. I know the appointment-rate for moderators is not made public, nor is a list of newest mods (modfriend might track it, but that’s a little inaccurate) posted. Just thinking out loud if the rate of new mods is keeping up with the rate of new users.

I got asked to be a mod right around the time there were 60,000 users on at one time. They usually make new ones every few months or so.

That doesn’t seem consistent. I was expecting something along the lines of 2ish a week.

Nah would be too much work to train them all in those short periods. So they do about sevenish at a time.

I concur with uuu2. It looks like roughly every three months another four to ten moderators are appointed.

Thank you for this, I found it very helpful. :P

Just do what you would usually do when your in front of a mod, alot of mods get annoyed when 8 ppl pm them at a time… And dont just randomly send in reports, it just wastes their time

Most sites with a community aspect, such as forums or chat, have mods. Although different sites have different modding methods.

Although is you want to get recognized try chatting more or chatting in different chat rooms.

I’m afraid I don’t know you as well as I ought to. Who are these people telling you that you should be a mod, might one inquire?

There are lots of sites that are social, which have mod-like users, that have special privileges to punish badly behaving people.

And yes, you can get recognized by taking part on Kong community such as the chat or forums.

And usually, it takes time to make mods/admins to make you a mod, since you (usually) have to have Kong knowledge and help with questions.

If you’d read it, you’d see this bolded: Don’t ask to be a moderator, if you do, your chances to become one goes to slim to none.

If you want to become a moderator, the best thing to do is to not worry about becoming a moderator. Regular users can still encourage good chat behaviour, report users for inappropriate behaviour, and call in moderators when necessary. If you just be yourself you have a better chance than if you try to act differently, since usually it can be found out if you’re acting differently just for the sake of becoming one. This part of the help section has some more information that you might find informative (for lack of a better word).
