You don't simply accept to a training program to become a MOD.
This is how the process usually works:
9001) You get regular training after becoming a MOD just to strengthen MOD skills.
1) Long term, relatively active member. (once a week at least perhaps...?)
2) Respected, fun, kind, responsible (to the max. Or somewhere near...)
and preferably a friend. (For trust reasons.)
3) Long term spotless (or at least fairly clear)
record of behaviour, post style and rule obligation and obedience.
4) Monitored (as with everyone) for at least a significant amount of time
and knows the forum very well.
5) Has done outstanding feats of kindness, humour, morality and responsibility.
6) 99.9%+ probability of not abusing MOD powers.
7) This is a special philosophically sounding (but actually psychological) one:
Like in Harry Potter (1st film)"Only a person who wanted to find the Stone - find it, but not use it -
would be able to get it. That is one of my more brilliant ideas. And
between you and me, that is saying something."
Mod Translation: Only a person who wanted to become a MOD - must find good reasons for becoming one and reasons to be
accepted, but not intend on becoming one yet -
would be able to eventually become one. That is one of my more
brilliant ideas. And
between you and me, that is saying something.
Being a MOD isn't fun. NO WAY.
