I'm not sure how the Admininstrators choose the moderators for the technical forums, but I'm pretty sure you have to be a trusted tech first. They probably ask specific people that they have in mind for the position if they would be interested.
The last time they were looking for an Off Topic Mod, they put out an announcement. I do remember that if you were interested, prior moderating experience was a plus.

We don't *only* look to current staff members to become Mods. For certain areas of the boards, yes...we need someone who is a Trusted Tech or Trusted Helper. However, for areas like the Web Design, Off Topic and so on....we generally will ask someone to become a Mod if they have shown us that they are reliable, friendly and can interact well with the members of the site. Just post in the areas you're most comfortable in, and offer help/advice where you can. You'll get noticed if you do a good job. :tazz:

Thanks for coming in and explaining it more Kat...I was just in chat (I can finally get in since I"m back at my house) and was looking for you to see if you could stop by this thread, but I didn't see you there.

I'm there off and on. I was spending FAR too much time there, so I backed off a little. :tazz:

You can still always reach me fairly quickly via pm here if you need me, or on aim or yahoo :)

Thanks. I will begin work right away. I actually have my own forum, and you can access it at my site. (Not posting URL in case that breaks rules.)

You're allowed to post a text link to your site in your signature. No clickable graphics are allowed, though. :tazz:

*Edit...you can post the link as long as your site meets the "family friendly" qualification. :)
