Note: There is no application process. New judges are chosen based on need and judge recommendation.
The biggest and most important things that will NOT get you judge status on PMC is:
1. Asking to become a judge.
2. Hinting that you would be a good judge.
Basically, judge position hunting.[/size]

Now for some helpful suggestions on how you might POSSIBLY be asked to become a Judge, many of which are similar to becoming a Moderator and are just standard good common sense.

How to Become a Judge
1. Read the Site, Submission, and Chat rules and do your best to follow them.
2. Be active on the site. Post new submissions, make them unique and interesting. Don't swear, troll or otherwise be a jerk.
3. When people ask for help, offer help if you can. Don't point and laugh, no matter how dumb YOU think the question is. Everyone started as a n00b once.
4. If you notice a post is breaking one of the rules, report the post using the report button. Don't post a whole new topic on how someone is breaking the rules, do not comment on post saying "reported" and do not point it out in chat. Just report and leave.
5. Help out the current judges by taking a look at the contest entries. Report anything that's spam, inappropriate, wrong, incomplete, stolen or does not match the contest's theme. If something is stolen, remember to include proof.
6. Be respectful of everyone, moderators, judges and other users. Don't participate in flame wars.
7. Try and post quality submissions that show originality behind them.
8. Do your best to not be biased and prove that you would be able to judge fairly (that does not mean showing off or drawing attention to it).
9. Be active on the site and even if you don't post frequently, retain a presence. We don't want judges that will leave midway through the contest.

The above suggestions will ONLY get you noticed by the judges. New judges are chosen based on need and judge recommendations. The best way to get recommendations is to do the above things, not by chasing after the position.

Popularity is not considered for judge roles. You can be popular, and not post great skins, but that popularity isn't going to get you judge status.

Hopefully that will help out any of you aspiring to become judges.

When I loaded this I was expecting some level 1 no avatar guy going "GIV MI JUJE R4NK". Anyway, I don't see why people are so focused on getting staff ranks. Personally I would not take judge rank if it was offered to me. I'm awesome enough in real life

Thank you for this, I was kinda unsure how to become contest judge on PMC, I assumed it was the same way you become a moderator, and it was true!

EDIT: I did not know it was (almost) the same way you become moderator. and thank you for this tutorial!
