    I mean think about it. If you were chosen to be a moderator here you would have to live up to it. You couldnt just sit there and not moderate at all. But you also couldnt abuse your powers and ban someone over an innocent comment that might have offended you. And a lot of people would say that other people are more fit for the position than you. So I ask again would you really want to be a mod if you were offered the opportunity?

    PS. Im not saying that we need any more moderators the ones we have do an excellent job.
    And mods feel free to close this if it gets out of hand.

    Currently one mod actually moderates, not even if a pleasant manner (gotta play the politics eh?), while the rest do nothing.

    Hell, at this point anyone should be considered. $hay is lookin pretty good right now...

    Yeah, I'm fine with just being a normal user, but being a mod would be pretty cool.

    FWIW, I think bgizzle has a pretty sweet deal, perhaps too sweet, the mods have so much to do, the forum is stricter then ever, and the money from the ads goes right in big G's pocket.

    is there any money involved? seems like ipodtouchfans has some good sponsors, the mods must get rwarded surely?

    but.. good question.. moderating sounds relly kool, but im sure its not as kool as it seems

    They don't get anything but the satisfaction which will eventually lead to an arrogant front later on
