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.
