How did the moderators get the job at LQ?

So is it RSVP only or can you ask to join the club?

Keyphrase is discretion of jeremy in what acid mentioned. "members are invited to become moderators at the discretion of jeremy".

I'm sure you can ask but that total decision is made by jeremy.

Well as far as I can see, to become a moderator, you need to do little else than regularly frequent an unnamed chatroom.

Personally, I'm with Groucho Marx on this. When my post count reaches 1000 I'll become neither a 'guru' or a 'LQ addict'. I'll just re-register and start again.

I took that to mean Jeremy just randomly picks someone and asks them to be a mod when/if he thinks the board needs more so what I was asking is does he just ask someone he's familiar with when he needs another or does he take requests. I guess I was also implicitly asking by putting the question in the forum that he moderates.

As for the 1k post mark, I'll deal with that if I get there until then I already think of myself as either a guru or an addict or a newbie but everyone is free to either form their own opinion or to just think of me as a 'member'

Maybe if I were a mod someone would tell me why I'd care either way whether russell crowe knits?

He doesn't randomly pick them, he usually will pick them if he thinks they are suited for the job. I don't know of any current mod that requested to become one, we were all hand picked by him.

Cool tricky, that's the answer I was looking for. I figured if it interested me and there was some sort of request that had to be made I'd at least look into it. Since that's not the case I'll just do what I've been doing which is lurking all over to learn and posting at times when someone actually has a question in my narrow realm of knowledge.

Drew is correct, I don't just pick out of a hat I judge when a forum needs another mod and then I look at the members that often participate, are respected, insert other parameters here in that forum and choose from there.
