This is the guide to what each role is supposed to fulfill and do. If they are not doing their job well, they will have to be talked to and it could possibly lead to a demotion.
This is the first level of promotion. Every user must be a mod in order to advance on in the future. There were skips in the past straight to admin, which all are demoted except one.
Chat mods are supposed to watch the chat and make sure everyone is following the rules.
kick users from chat
ban users from chat
These are the forum moderators. They watch the forum, particularly the roleplay board and watch for any activity that breaks the rules.
These users watch the main activity and pages. They are not only for categories, but for making sure the pages are following the rules. They should also be cleaning out the Candidates for deletion category often.
rollback undo (fast undo)

I highly doubt I will become a mod. I don't I want to, but i might want to become a chat mod just because I am on almost everyday, but with summer coming up and with out a PC at home this will not work. Am I helping the wiki? Just growing, but no. Thank you for listening.
I think a chat MOD or content MOD would be the best for me. I'm usually always on chat all the time and I like to read the wiki pages so I'm on both a lot. But I'm not sure what the requirements are to become one...
