It's in the FAQ:

PS: If you sign all the mods up for a "Beer of the Month" club, we'll see what we can do about knocking it down to 750 or something.

PPS: Not really.

I found that the most effective way to become a mod is to first place some money in a brown envelope in a locker in a railway station near Jeremy. Then leave certain coded messages.

Once Jeremy is happy that the coast is clear, he collects the money and you become a mod.

Worked for me

How does one become a mod you ask?

Dedication to the forums. Helping others with Linux. And Jeremy's picking of you. Well, now with a large group of mods, he asks our opinions when a mod position comes available or is needed. In most cases now, he picks who we as in the current mods feel would be a suitable moderator.

So be nice to the mods, help out by answering questions, report posts that break the rules and so on. And don't have 95% of your posts in General and you to may become a moderator here..

But it will always be Jeremy's call who becomes mod in the end.
