As one of a newee member, i am just curious to know how a member become a moderator. Not that it matters to me, but i thought knowledge is virtue.

So the moderators, pls let me know how you become one and what access do you have that the ordinary members do not have.

Thank you for your response

All you have to do is put a cookie monster logo on your avatar and it automatically gives you moderator privileges.
Geoff was voted in because of his charm, good looks and virility.

Same reason I am not one. :)

The real reason is that this forum is privately owned and the owner and admin staff and moderators make the decision when they need further moderating assistance.

There are no secret handshakes or payoffs, not that I am aware of.
