Sorry if it's posted somewhere here but just how does one get to be a moderator here?

You select the forum which you wish to moderate.

You issue a challenge to the moderator.

You and the moderator meet on the field of honor (the challenged picks the weapons of honor).

If you win, you become the new moderator.

If you lose, you are never mentioned again.

15,000 quatloos on the challenger!

Being a moderator at several other boards (non-firearms related), I'd say the best way to 'become' a moderator is to follow the rules, help others, and not ask about being a moderator.

Big Calhoun hit the nail on the hed, I think. I moderate a couple of boards, and got the position by simply being helpful to others and following the rules. That said, I'm not sure I'd want to mod here or THR: a LOT more activity than the boards I help with!

Aw c'mon! It's lots of fun... if you're into pain .

As the newest mod here, I knew I was in trouble when Rich said "Welcome to the meat grinder!"

OK...I know the answer...

Buy 125,237 subscriptions to SWAT Magazine, then pass a spell test

Finally, you cant own a plastic gun, nor even think of owning one, not have ever thought of owning one

you buy that many subscriptions and they might give you the whole forum to yourself

Why on earth would one want to be a moderate on anything???

This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My rifle is my best friend, it is my life. I must master itas i master my life.Without me my rifle is useless, without my rifle i am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I Will. Before God i swear this creed. My rifle and myself are defenders of my country. We are masters of our enemy. We are saviours of my life. So be it until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.
