    One gets asked to join by the current admins/mods. One doesn't just sign up to be one

    To be considered, I would think helpfulness, level-headiness, consistency, and post quality over time all play a role

    If you're looking to become a mod yourself, I wouldn't bet on it.

    BUT I am also interested in how mods are chosen. That could be "confidential" stuff though, idk. On most forums I know of, the admin(s) pretty much just choose some respectable people after they've built trust. But with a forum this big, it seems like that method would be hard.

    EDIT: Posted too late... Ignore me

    Oh thank you. I don't know how I missed it while I was looking through the FAQ. Thanks again!

    You probably missed it because there are two FAQs:

    MacRumors FAQ - about the site and using the forums

    Moderation FAQ - about moderation of the forums
