    The only "criteria" is just be a member in good standing ... one without any warnings and/or infractions, or temp bans.

    All staff members were originally hand picked by the forum owner, Frederik Magle when he felt the need to add moderators. I was chosen in 2007, after having been asked to be on staff at our sister forum, MIMF, the year before, I was made Sr. Moderator, then Assistant Administrator in 2008, and Administrator in 2011.

    When the time comes that we feel additional staff are needed, we come up with a list of names to consider. After much internal discussion we finalize that list, and then we will ask that/those member(s) if they are at all interested in joining the staff.

    If they don't accept that is fine ... there will never be any problem with decliniing nor would we ever think differently about that member in the future.

    Thanks for the explanation.
    My new year's resolution is to buy less new music and listen more to the absolutely STUPID amount of music I already have.

    I really love your memes - maybe you should start a thread!

    Here's one you made earlier.

    Great to have Nereffid and Art Rock as mods - I do think the party has become more vibrant in the past week.

    ^Is that a phot of Art Rock? I thought it was a photo of some modern/20th century composer.
