How does one become a moderator?

Just curious, how are moderators chosen for RFD?

Most mods have gone through 6-12 months of moderator school, and then a 6 month apprenticeship working under the guidance of a current mod. From what I've heard the process is quite intense, and during the entire process you are not allowed to have any real-life interactions (all of your interactions must be made online via the forum).

I think @TomRFD accepts cash, perhaps certified money orders too.

If someone is interested to volunteer they can shoot a PM to @TomRFD. As for how they're chosen that's ultimately up to the Admins. The mods can chip in their 2 cents but the decision rests with them.
