How does one become a mod?  I'm guessing carrying oneself as an adult (e.g., not referring to our new star player as a cupcake) is a prerequisite.  But do folks apply?  Or are they invited?

Congrats.  The fact that this forum is well-moderated makes it a mainstay for me.  It's so common in threads on other sports forums to consistently devolve into flame wars or meaningless discussion.

Nick was an undercover mod for sometime now, suspended me for “disobeying a mod” back in September. I was over here like, “okay, I didn’t know you were a mod...” but whatever. Anyway, I’ve known you guys for years. Good posters. Congrats

Congratulations to the new mods. Good acquisitions. How long before the first sell high on the new mods pops up?  :)

It’s pretty much an internal nomination process, where we look at a members activity level, history and demeanor. Then, we have a discussion to see if the nominee is interested, and go from there.

Not quite accurate. Nick has moderated some of the draft threads and political threads in the past, but that was announced (rather than undercover) and he didn’t have suspension powers. He did a great job.

Is there like a heck week process where we all start acting wild and force the new mods hands?
My 2017 Draft Rankings:       My 2017 FA Celtic Rankings:
1.) Markelle Fultz                   1.) Gordon Hayward
2.) Jayson Tatum                   2.) Blake Griffin
3.) Lonzo Ball                           3.) No other realistic options
4.) Josh Jackson                          move the needle much
5.) Lauri Markkanen

Good point.  The worst we have to deal with here are endless "pick up Jahlil Okafor" threads.
