I personally think that bunder will make an excellent moderator; therefore, I would like to propose the addition of bunder to the moderator team.

He's on quite a bit, and I don't see him ravaging around and aggressively taking sides on issues.

with the sudden increase of spam, i propose we hire more mods. 8O
may i be the first to recommend bunder for mod? :lol:

Normally an application is not needed, we've some guys on the list of possible candidates in case we need some helping hands.
So if you think the least of it some PN coming out of nowhere might hit your inbox ;)

Has anyone that has not reached the "Veteran" ranking become a Moderator? I wonder if the number of posts are important. :?

Wow, that is interesting, I'm assuming they have some connections in high places ;). Or have given few, but some very insightful posts. :P I wouldn't mind moderating the spanish boards with my 126 posts though :wink:.

What is more likely tho is a user was around quite a bit (maybe to Vet level) and were asked to be a moderator and decided to make a new user and thus their postcount starts afresh. NO chance the admins would give someone with only 14posts (unless known from somewhere else) mod rights

I was only on about 990 posts when I became a mod, I never got to be a veteran.

The mods with lower post counts tend to be Gentoo developers who we allow to become mods in the language and architecture specific forums.

The number of posts isn't an important factor in deciding who becomes a moderator, the quality of your posts and the way you interact with other forum members is much more important.
