This question gets asked a ton. I realize there are many forum posts about this topic so I decided to create my own blog about this.

Cyprezz is the Admin / Site Developer of PlanetMinecraft. He is the one that decides who looks like they will qualify for the Moderator or new position, Forum Moderator on PMC. This is just like a normal Minecraft server, you DON'T ask to be a Moderator on this site. Cyprezz asks you.

So That Means I Can't Become A Moderator?

No, that does not mean that at all. There is a POSSIBILITY that you can become a Moderator. These are the ways of earning your trust and over time Moderators/Forum Moderators will notice you and recommend you to Cyprezz.

1. Be active on the forums - This means be nice, helpful and don't lash out on people that are still learning how to play Minecraft.

2. Don't ask Moderators to become a Moderator - I'm not sure how many questions Moderators get a day on if someone can become a Moderator. First of all, it's not up to a Moderator who to pick to be a Mod! They can recommend people however if you bother them so much, they will just simply ignore you.

3. This is just like a normal Minecraft server - If you go on a server and ask, "Can I be an OP?" Your answer will be no or the staff will just simply ignore you. This is NOT something that you ask for! The staff asks you if they feel you have qualified for the position!

Another thing that kind of annoys me, and this reflects back to my Mod/Admin blog, is that people would just like to be Moderators for the power. If you are a person that just wants to be a Moderator for the power, you are not qualified for the job. The Moderator's job on the site includes this:

1. Making sure people are enjoying PMC as much as they can.

2. Making sure people follow the site's Rules & Guidelines Page

3. Controlling spam and unneeded content on the site

Consider Moderators having a type of "job" where being a Moderator means you aren't allowed to play around with your powers (as many Server Admins/Mods do).

Well consider this a type of small tutorial, once again I'm NOT telling you that you will become Moderator of this site if you follow these things, however it will indeed give you a good reputation.

How does Cyprezz find users to see whether they are worthy of becoming a Mod? Does he just pick a user randomly, examine him, promote him (or not), then choose another random user?

This is a helpful little notice but in a way it is Ironic to the post I got here from. Telling people how to become moderaters IS an admirable thing, but if people who only want to become a moderater read this, they may change in hopes they will, then revert to being powerhungry. I started making projects on this site to share with people so they too could experience what my ideas on minecraft are, and enjoy what I have to offer. I think being a moderater would be a honor, but it would be a bit dreadful too. Like you said mods are chosen because they are helpful and enjoy being on the site. Offering how to become one seems, again, odd. Just something I think I should share with you. No hard feelings if I insulted :)
