I've suggested the same thing multiple times.

Also, Morden would be a stellar addition to the mod clique.  His wry, ironic wit would be appreciated in many a discussion.

Sshhhh...we're not supposed to mention the only requirement for becoming a mod.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

But you should do it.  You can always quit! Smiley

Thanks Dave.  Now can someone give me a quick primer on how I actually do this job?

It basically involves you making judgment calls via this thing called a "Moderation Board" and other people getting upset about you and starting threads about how you're a biased moderator.

The secret boards at subboards of this one.  There has been at least two cases, I'm pretty sure, of moderators being appointed for months before finding out where the hidden boards are (if ever).

The "is that a testicle showing?" discussion is currently the most interesting one going on, IMO.
