Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4JackHoff is right. Moderators are chosen based on how well they interact with other users on the site. We have squeaky clean abuse records, tutor and provide solutions instead of just giving answers and we tend to be experts in our subjects so we can give right answers and correct wrong answers. But it is in big part based on participation, courtesy and respect.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4The site administrators pick mods. There are really three kinds of mods: group mods, global mods and administrators. Group mods have the green square but not the word "Moderator" by their name  they are the highest ranked user logged in to a specific group at a specific time. Global mods have the "moderator" logo and are green wherever we go on the site and administrative mods are the people who actually work for Open Study. @ JackHoff, I know and I gave you a medal because you said it so well. :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Don't know. It's not my decision. It's not a reason to give up all hope. I acquired a few abuse reports for various reasons, though never any warnings or other formal punishments, but they took me anyway.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm. i learned too much from jag ___ haha jk jag :DDDD well im still gonna try :DD i also noticed that global mods have high levels..any reason for that? is there a requirement?

blues

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4High level users are high level users because they have been on the site for a while and are active on it. We have long, proven track records of being respectful and helpful. And we plainly know our subjects so we are able to discern right answers from wrong answers. These are all qualities that make good mods. But no, I don't know that high level is a strict and absolutely necessary requirement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks for tackling this question blues and myn. To clarify, we did away with the automatic appointment of group mods. We still have the capability to manually appoint them, but we don't have any right now  so you won't see them. Thanks again!
