Here's the low-down to apply for a moderator position:
- 1. You need to be a long time member, 2.5+ years minimum (with possible exceptions if you're super awesome)
2. You need to be mature and free of trollish postings (*cough* a background check will be preformed, a la post history )
3. phpBB's moderating tools are very simple to use, so the learning curve is very small, technical knowledge isn't really necessary!
This is a "whenever you feel like moderating position" - very relaxed. What you get is a custom title as a moderator (if you don't have one already). I usually just PM people who I think are fit for positions, but I decided to do it this way for a change.
Please PM me if you're interested!
