    IRC, that takes me back. Pretty much where I spent most of my time on the net from 1999-2003. Didn't matter that I had dialup, and it was great for filesharing (still is I'm sure). The interaction was a hundred times better than Facebook, that's for sure. Even before I delved into IRC, the original battle.net had its own rendition of it too.

    Well that's where IRC comes in, so you're not alone anyway. I spent my first few months pretty much alone on my class forum, and it was fine, cause when in doubt I could ask on IRC what to do, or how to handle things. So don't weep for us, class forums are fine

    I hope you only meant this for Arothand, but in the case of if it matters, I'm available... a lot. If you couldn't tell by my time spent posting on these forums, anyways. :P

    Do I sound like a good applicant? I'm against the following matters
    • Americans
    • George Bush & all the other racists
    • Obelodalix' communism in PVP-forums
    • The Gestapo control of Blizzard in OT-Forums (e.g. discussions about Blizz deleted)
    • Chaud's low tolerance of Intel fan boys in the computer-section

    Class mods have to be the smartest proest people in that subforum. Otherwise they'd get no respect. Same thing with Obe having to be baller PVPer. Class mods SHOULD be some of the best people on these forums.

    I've had so many infractions that I should be a mod to infract myself, saves some time.

    Nonsense. You have to know the class, and some working knowledge and insight about class mechanics (i.e. you need to actually play the class and realise what changes do) but you certainly don't have to be a "pro" at it. It's much more important that you know how to differentiate between a good post and a bad post, and when to jump into discussions and tell people to stay on topic, and equally when not to be overbearing and let people discuss matters on their own.

    There's enough top flight players in the forums that can lead the discussion and do the theorycrafting and make the guides and fill the pages with arguments and counter arguments for us to ever worry about that. We simply need to moderate the forum and make sure those discussion stay on topic and friendly. As long as you are a good moderator and can accomplish that then you can be as casual about your playing as you want.

    It would probably surprise you how often class forum moderators play at a low level, play a different class as their main due to raid circumstances, or even not have a running subsctiption for a while due to lack of fun or lack of money. None of it matters as long as you know your class and know how to be a good moderator, and have some posting presence in the forum.

    You get paid in love and adoration from the forum community.

    Oh wait, no, that's not right.

    Good luck, I would love to moderate but I'd have to infract myself too much.

    Just checked for fun, apparently I'm eligible for Warlock and Video Games. Too bad I don't have the time. Or the positive posting history.

    Every time I apply it always says I do not meet the requirements. Do I need to be more active? I am on almost every day, just not posting.

    Quoted from the OP:
    One of the "base" requirements to be eligible to moderate a forum is to have 100 posts in the past 90 days in that forum. A little over 1 post/day for a moderator doesn't seem excessive, and is required to have credible moderators. Bigger forums might require more posts (150 to 300) while smaller forums may require less (50 to 75).
