A good relationship with thermos and high trust and forum longevity?

Probably more the latter two although the former obviously helps. I'd imagine some of the staff also have a place to put in their own input and recommendations on who should become a moderator.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

I'm sure high activity and a continual forum presence is needed, and I guess positive trust would help too, but there are some mods who don't seem to have any trusted 'green' feedback. Also I think most forums usually have a super secret hidden mod board  Grin.

Select one sub forum and be active there by participating in threads and report spammy posts. Gain trust and wait for call from admin.

Yeah that is actually common, a secret board for the staff. Due to that I don't think that trust is something that is being looked at. Of course the member shouldn't have a negative trusted rating.

They mods/admins have mentioned the 'secret' mod board here before.

Not really, except for local mods where he doesn't know the language. Like all things theymos, he acts on his own. So far, that's turned out okay, so I don't really see it as a bad thing.

Not being DiamondCardz probably is also one.

Well yes, if you were me you wouldn't be a mod because I'm not a mod, makes sense, no?

That one kind of amused me since I was teasing you a bit in the other Meta thread  Grin

Hmm, you are right, it has mostly turned out okay (except a couple). Surprising that there is no mod input on the matter, though, I would've thought that there would be.

There's little mod input on many decisions... or notice about changes either!

They are volunteers but they get a small share of advertising revenue split between them.

The forum sells ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page. About 25% of ad income goes to the forum moderators as thanks for all of their work. (There are many moderators, so each moderator gets only a small amount -- moderators should be seen as volunteers, not employees.)

Probably we get paid less than your signature deal.

Most, in fact, get much less than many active people from sig deals get. The payment is meant to be as a thank you for the work moderators do, not a salary.

Well yeah, being a moderator is usually voluntary work not a job. At least you get something, at a lot of places moderators get nothing at all.
Cheers to theymos for keeping care of you guys.

Yeah, they get paid, but you're supposed to think of it as being a volunteer.

I'm surprised that no one noticed this before now. Almost all of the moderators have addresses in their Bitcoin Address profile fields, and these addresses receive obvious, regular sendmany payments from addresses owned by me or the forum...

Moderators are not employees. They are not required to "behave professionally," and they don't need to help you with anything. The payments are a form of thanks for past actions, and they do not establish any future obligations for the forum or moderators.

John K. got $1,149. How do you sign up to be a mod!

Report many posts accurately, and write good posts. Mods are added infrequently, and only when needed. Also, as you can see, few mods make anywhere near that much.

It's proportionally split on activity or some secret algorithm which theymos made, I believe. To get as much as John K. got there you'd probably have to be really active & be at least a global mod.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.

I think one of the criterias to become a moderator was to not ask how to become one. Cheesy Not really sure, but I think I read it somewhere.

Activity as in the activity points we all have or based on how active you are on the forum (time logged in and dealing with reports etc)?

Are mods paid or they are volunteer ?

*BitcoinDream had his dreams shattered as he realised that by pestering theymos and becoming a moderator he would not be able to get free bitcoins*
I think one of the criterias to become a moderator was to not ask how to become one. Cheesy Not really sure, but I think I read it somewhere.
That's true, asking for moderator on any forum usually will decrease your actual chance of becoming one as it just annoys people in general. Not that the OP is necessarily asking for mod.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.
