Well, first you have to go through moderator boot camp. First step is mental preparation, when all existing moderators get to gather around you and badger you with unanswerable questions for three days or so, unless of course you snap. Then there's the physical endurance preparation, basically you can run a standard triathalon followed by a military obsticle course or just swim across the Pacific without benefit of a shark cage. If you wish, you can knock out both tests at the same time by taking a three day bus ride to Washington D.C. singing "I'm Off To See The Wizard" the entire way.
Of course, you might just ask Ron, the qualifications today may not be as stringent as the were for me.
I believe he is looking for help all the time and with you spending that much time on the forums anyway, I'm sure he could use your help.
When God puts a tear in your eye,
He puts a rainbow in your heart.
