He's understanding, he's patient, he has a good sense of humour, he's not a hobbit for real, he's full of paint stains after his hard training and he is available for behind spammed.
Welcome aboard Bilbo1_OC
Few things you have to remind :
- You won't become a moderator by asking. In fact it's worse than trying to divide by zero.
- There are no set criteria for the moderator position except the changing ones constantly created by my weird and sick mind.
- People are not selected because of their levels, guilds (but if you want to join Open Casket, please, spam elchew_OC a lot so he can understand what it means), ELO ranking or colour of their socks, it's far worse than that and I won't tell you more about it or it will wake Cthulhu up. He is always very grumpy when he wakes up and it's not really a good thing.
- Believe me or not, moderators are players who volunteer, they don't get massive super powers, they can't change water in chocolate milk nor tell you what will be next collectors. They are nice people with a big quality : they are very patient. And is some cases, it's a bigger power than changing water in chocolate milk.
Contribute to the community in a meaningful and positive way while maintaining a level of maturity and patience.
I'm not so sure why there's so much glamour attached to the positions aside from the obvious boost in popularity you'd receive (more ratings on presets, more people in your events, etc..), I'd imagine all you get is the ability to allow posts through to the forum and remove posts if need be.
You can contribute just as much as a moderator can, and just as meaningfully. Don't feel lesser because you're not one, and you certainly shouldn't feel like you absolutely need to strive for the position just so you can help people or whatever it is you're aiming for.
