    I'm just wondering . . . Is it gonna be a lot of work? Or is it just moderating when ya happen to check in? Are there criteria which I must meet, such as age, post count, etc.? And do I have to be interested in General Science and Technology?

    Athelwulf,

    As a moderator you will be expected to delete uncivil, un-intellectual or off-topic post, move threads that are improperly placed in your forum, merge similar threads, ect. You will be expected to be able to check on your sub-forum often. If you feel you can do all of this please nominate your self.

    Be warned that as a moderator many will find offense with your moderating decisions, will complain and harass you. Not only I but also many others moderators here have had banishment and impeachment poll made against them.

    And if I later decide I don't wanna be mod anymore?

    . . . After a lengthy period of service, of course.

    You can resign at anytime, many moderator have. Just don’t drop your candidacy during elections as that might screw things up.

    Well hell, I think I come by often enough. I nominate myself for Moderator status for General Science and Technology.

    (I don't think I'll win the elections, though

    A few times a week is probably good enough for that sub-forum, make sure you email is working though: every time someone hits the report button it sends a email to the moderator of that sub-forum. Don’t worry if you don’t win its not like it’s the greatest thing on earth to be, in fact it can be a pain at times.

    I would check on it at least twice a day (I put time into my schedule for computer stuff, once in the morning and at work). I would check even more often on weekends and holidays, there is also often more posting during those times too.
