I'm sure everyone would like to join me in welcoming the newest member of the DaniWeb moderating team, and a much deserved appointment it is too:

But how does a junior poster in training become one? (I'm just curious)

It's a judgment call amongst the current moderation team. Somebody nominates a member as a moderator to get our attention, then we decide if a new mod is needed and vote on whether to offer an invitation if that's the case.

Anyone can be nominated. However, certain metrics do help in that we can see how the community already views the nominee and how the nominee participates in the community. Metrics that help include post count (ie. activity), solved threads, reputation, and upvote:downvote ratio.

We also (most importantly) look at the nominee's suitability as a moderator, such as maturity, ability to look at situations objectively, and ability to disassociate from emotion when making a decision.

Congrats! But how does a junior poster in training become one? (I'm just curious)

Thanks, but I'm assuming you ask this because that's what's showing up in my title now... Lol. It looks like my title had changed to this recently.
