    On this forum, when new moderators are needed, the existing staff discusses the matter and decides which members to ask if they would be willing to help.

    To add to eggchel's post, some of the things we look for are level headedness, helpfulness, maturity, knowledge, commonsense, loyalty, sense of humor and ability to lead.

    Quote:I'd like to add a few more details on what we're looking for when we invite people to become moderators:

    Helpfulness / Love of the community: You have a genuine desire to help BYC grow and want to help people help their chickens
    Loyalty: You're not just here for a month and you also agree with the rules and philosophies of this site, i.e., family friendly, etc.
    Maturity / level handedness: You don't get offended easily and try not to let your emotions rule your behavior
    Sense of humor: We like people who are fun to be around and enjoy a good laugh

    You'll notice I didn't post "knowledge of chickens".... well, that's because while it is a "plus" it isn't necessarily a requirement.
