    Good luck to the people who are successful in applying. I have been interested in applying in the past, and although I visit mmo-champ on a daily basis, (and have since well before my join date), I just don't post anywhere near enough.

    I'm not eligible or anything nor do I want to be one, but I'm curious, would a moderator be expected to visit other forums on MMO-Champion?

    I know you have dedicated moderators for every specific forum, but I've seen other forums (not MMO-Champion) which require their moderators to post in various forums so that they're known. It seems weird but I've seen multiple sites do that.

    Big thanks to Yoni for making this Avatar and Signature!

    You have to be active in the forum you mod -- which is why there is the steep posting requirement to even apply -- but you don't need to be active in other places. The important part is that your forum knows who you are and sees you have an active presence there.

    There are some subforums I have zero posts in!

    Some Super Mod you are! :P

    Well, I'd like to apply to Video Game mod, but apparently I don't qualify. ...but I qualify for Sports & Fitness...?!? I post there like twice a week. I don't get that.

    Also, is there any chance that we could get some feedback on our rejection? I got rejected last time, and I don't know why. It'd be great to get some feedback, even if it's just a little note such as "Needs more posting", or something like that.

    Some forums have higher post count requirements than others.

    Well, poop. I still don't understand how I'm able to apply at Sports, though. I have 194 TOTAL posts there, and I can apply. Meanwhile, 963 at Video Games, and I can't. Seems logical. Oh well. *pouts in corner*

    I had a question concerning the application. I'm interested in applying for moderating the Chat Zone, but when I apply it says I don't meet the requirements. Is that because my posts in Chat Zone don't actually count towards my post count even though I do technically meet the requirements since I have 648 posts in Chat Zone? Or is it saying I don't meet the requirements for another reason I'm not aware of?

    Chat zone requires 300 posts in the last 90 days.

    It counts posts in the last 90 days, not overall posts.

    For those of you a little reluctant to apply, to me being a mod just feels like another sub-community within the site. Spend time on IRC, and just hang out. Yeah, you do mod things, but you also get a lot of friends, and people that will help you out. And it's not like you're gonna be alone, there's always another mod or many for whatever forum you moderate (except class mods, I weep for you).

    I've had some missteps in my post history and can fully account for them and admit to them, thus I don't blame them for denying me in the past. I suppose the worst that can happen though is they just say no again and my adventure towards post count farmer titles shall continue. ^_<

    I was only kidding. Be hopeful, you never know.

    hehe, I know, but I still felt like replying in the sense of "hey, maybe they've been displeased with you in the past," which they have every right to be, to be fair.

    It says I can't apply.

    FWIW, I even had several active infractions at the time I got accepted. But also remember that if you are a good poster and/or can shape up, you might not be accepted for other reasons. Just because you're being eligble for a forum does not necessarily mean that that forum necessarily has a need for more moderators. Or that there were applicants that were deemed more attractive in the role of moderation, and this does not mean anyone was less attractive, but there were only so many slots to fill. Other issues may be if someone is too heated in discussions or is deemed not to be able to be partial, even if they are a good poster.
    Please note that I'm not commenting on yours (or anyone elses) posting habits or stating these thoughts as facts. I have not followed your posting habits and have no idea if anything or everything I wrote is applicable, I'm speaking in general.

    If you think you'd (anyone) do a good job, applying might be a good idea.

    Moderator recruitment merely just opened. Applications between recruitment waves, if this is indeed what you are insinuating, are rare to be reviewed due to time constraints. Again speaking in general and not definitive or specific terms, of course!
