I may just be a bad person, but why would anyone WANT to be a moderator? It just seems like an awful lot of work. Especially when you've gotta go around telling newbies like me where the correct place to put your posts are. Like I said, A lot of extra work.

Hey Stories, I’m a mod so I guess I’m qualified enough to answer this question.

So, why would anyone want to be a mod?
I can’t speak for the other mods, or members who have been mods in the past, but I became a mod because I love our community. I wanted to get more involved in helping out our new members find a firm footing when first starting out and engaging with current members who wanted more things to participate in. I want to help grow this place I have been a member for years, that has given so much to me, from great stories to wild game nights.
I like watching our little community grow, I like when a new member arrives and you can just tell they will gel with everyone else and become a great part of the community. From Trek, Palf, Mocc, Gina, Brooke, Saph, it’s just such a joy to meet and interact with all these new people on a regular basis, to see them participate on the site and watch as they create new, interesting content. Plus, I get to make some cool stories with incredibly gifted people on a daily basis, something that is quite addicting. This place has been a well of fun, intense, wild, and incredibly funny times, and I want to help keep that going for new and current members.
Sure, sometimes we have to deal with bots or spammers, but that is such a small part of it that it doesn’t bother me.
And Stories, you are not a bad person, us telling you were to post things is just to help you out, don’t take it as a bad thing. We are mods, that’s what we are here to do, help you get around the site.

So that’s why I became a mod, that’s why I like logging onto this site every day, and most importantly, that’s why I put up with Wadjet.

So, you become mods cause you're cool people in general. Sweet.
