Hello,
This may be a stupid question, but how do you become a member of the UG Team? I don't mean as a programmer or anything, I mean when you see a user that has the banner with a star above their user avatar, that says "UG Team". Is the only way to apply for the position they are looking for in the "Job Opportunity" section, or are there other ways? I'm just wondering...thanks to whoever can answer this question for me .
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

Have to be a CC, mod, S-mod, admin, programmer etc.

either become a writer/columnist/reviewer for UG via the "jobs" link, or become a mod. The former you can do with enough skill, the latter you can only get by chance.

You get a vision in your sleep and then awaken in a world made of clouds, step through the golden gates and are them deemed to be worthy of Mod status by The Almighty himself before being transported back to the world to bring joy and peace and banhammerpwnage to an otherwise unhappy, violent and un-banhammered world.

As has been said either get a job with the Russians or luck out and get hand picked to run the forums, your chance has just gone down for even asking you know!

One of the criteria for being a mod is not actually wanting to be a mod.

If you ask to be a mod, it means you want to be a mod.

it discourages people from asking.



Although to my knowledge, asking how to be a mod is fine. Asking outright to be a mod is the no-no.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

Ah okay, makes sense. I could see a flood of messages happening in that case. Thanks

Mods are chosen because the current team feel that through the user's normal usage of the forums, that they are capable and responsible enough to look after the forums, based out of what is realistically care. Meaning that they are in it for the forums benefit, not their own.

Asking to be a mod, more often than not, would lead one to believe that the person wants to be a mod for the "fame"


At least, that would be my understanding

Just don't ask if you want to be a mod, I think you manage to ask an interesting question though. I have been thinking of making a UG office in the US...but I doubt Zappp would approve of it. I mean it would be nice if they did again.

The people who most want power are also the people least suited to having power.

Also, it means the mod team dont have to face a constant tidal wave of PMs from people asking to be a mod. But mostly it's the first thing.

What I've always wondered is are all mods good kids? Or are there any reformed troublemakers?
