    I am curious as to what it takes to be a forum moderator. Is there an application process?

    Well i figured if longevity were a factor, I'd have an advantage. I've been here longer than December 2001. My old username quit working a ling time ago.

    You need to have a strong masochistic streak. :)

    We don't need another mod right now. When we do, we check out the forum members and see who may be suitable and David decides.

    Difference between 2 and 3 depends on your depth perception. :-D

    I heard the first set of mods were volunteers... David just threw out the invite asking people if they wanted to be moderators and thus the moderazzi was born.

    Why would you want to be one anyway?

    It helps to have a name that sounds like a movie character, perhaps from a film noir detective flick.

    "I keep two magnums in my desk. One's a gun and I keep it loaded. The other's a bottle and it keeps ME loaded. I'm MIKE LANG. I'm a professional snoop."

    I would say "Sirius Black" counts as a good movie name.
