I COULD BE BORED!
A lot of requirements include:How does one become a moderator or forum leader?
* Dedication to your subforum with both quality and quantity.
* Making good judgment calls on situations that may not always end in both parties happily.
* Overall being active and engaging helps a lot.
* Good leadership skills overall.
* Above all else don't beg to be a moderator.
It all varies significantly from subforum to subforum, and the numbers will vary with traffic and what upper staff and forum leaders want.
