How to be moderator

I’ve just wondered how to really become a moderator :D :)
There isn't a set criteria. Basically when Admins or existing moderators spot someone that seems like a good fit, they are "nominated" and then we discuss for a while to see how everyone feels about letting the person join the team.

No moderators here have ever gotten the job by asking for it though. Staff has always decided beforehand and then approached the player with a offer.

Also it's rare a player will go straight to moderator status. They usually do some time as a "Guardian" first. This allows the player to get a good grasp on how to deal with situations, and allows the staff to see the person in action before giving out moderator privs.

okay, thank you for the help. When you say that a moderator has never asked to become one, include it so ask HOW to become one?

Ehhh, i actually have a question more. If you want a player to be guardian, do you so ask, on The server or here on The forum? Or a other place?
If you were to ask, this forum would be the appropriate place as we try to keep the chatter down at the Minetest forum thread.
But even still.... as guardians are actually "mods in training", the staff "notices" the candidates and approach them like we do to moderators.
