It seems to just happen on here randomly. I have heard Alex say you need to be recommended. I don't know by who though, members, other staff team?


On lot of places, I have seen online applications for applying for mod status when they are looking for another moderator or need more of them due to more activity.

I have a quilt of labels. I had a language disorder and a speech disorder. Then communication disorder NOS. My other diagnoses have been Language Processing disorder, dyspraxia, SPD, OCD, ADD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, anorexia nervosa. My mom’s labels of me are: eating disorder, anorexia, social anxiety, PTSD, just being sensitive and having the victim complex when I was a kid. And of course she says I’m normal and says the only thing I had as a child was language. Huh? I must have been a shitty person then and maybe a difficult child I was who had to be labeled because of incompetent school staff and mean kids who didn’t accept differences and because I was trying to be “normal.” :/

It also depends on the number and quality of pancakes offered to the staff.

Not to mention chocolate muffins and strawberry cupcakes.

Cough, not terribly important but only four were made mods in April 2015: Enviro, Nyxjord, Walrus and me.
Adamantium and B19 were made mods in October 2015.


I don't remember anyone named Nyxjord.


She wasn't active here for very long, just about a year, and she hasn't been here since June 2015. This is her profile:

oh the biggest fun was to be threatened with having the throat slit, having a voodoo spell cast on some of us, not to mention being threatened with the US legal codes, since you know, issuing someone a warning here is an excruciatingly important matter of national security. not to mention being accused of wanting to send an armada to Spain, since really, we've nothing better to do but to collect the novices for the army, and send them whenever the need arises. did i mention that of course, we're monsters, who else would bother to moderate here? :P

on one other forum i was a bitchy witch, oh those were the days


also nobody seems to know you're not american so their threats are moot

I said that I was warm to the idea, and they happily reported that up the chain of command. But never got back to me about it. I guess the position got filled without me.

Or... maybe I ….visited the PPR one too many times after that. Oh well.


yeah, that happens unfortunately.

i doubt it got filled without you, we haven't had a mod appointment since spring 2015...
it's time now, i'm pretty sure.



Was thinking that maybe I ...misbehaved once or twice. And that caused them to change their mind about me.
