I am NOT a moderator in this forum. (Nor do I expect to become one.) However, I'm a moderator in several NON-fish forums. Each of these forums is different, but they have some things in common:

a) A high post count alone does not mean a person has the qualifications to become a moderator.

b) Moderators are generally selected because they are knowledgeable about the activity (in this case, fish-keeping and bettas), and for other factors, such as their helpfulness and their ability to ensure that posters adhere to the forum guidelines.

c) A potential moderator's personality needs to "fit" with the forum's "culture." (For example, someone who is argumentative would not be a good fit for a fit for a forum where arguments are discouraged! However, this same person may be great for a "debate forum," etc.)

d) Technically, a new member could become a mod - if the site administrator (and possibly the other mods) agree to grant that status to a new member. However, I really doubt this would ever happen. The member must first demonstrate a knowledge of the activity, and also 'prove' himself/herself - which is something that only happens over a large amount of time.

Again, this is based on my experiences at other (non-fish) sites.

Yes you have to be dedicated to the site, and a good team player, as we are a team.
