How does one become a mod?

The TOP TEN Requirements for Becoming a Moderator:

1. You must be a high school dropout. Dropouts from fully accredited grammar schools will be considered if they promise to never read any books or newspapers. Comic books and Rolling Stone are the only allowable reading materials.

2. You must memorize the Top 100 USNews college rankings---including all data elements. You must certify that you have never visited the website of the PrincEDITEDview.

3. You must be able to type the word "banned" while blindfolded, half asleep, and laughing. Moderators are expected to learn how to spell "bannd" without error.

4. You must never have stepped foot on any college campus, worn a college sweatshirt, or placed a college decal on the rear window of your Volvo. You may attend ONE college football game per season, but no "cheering" is permitted.

5. Dark Blue must be your favorite color. Any tendency towards green preference is grounds for immediate dismissal.

6. You must be able to recite the College Confidential Terms of Service---in both directions in English, French, German, Japanese, Farsi, and sign language.

7. You must have a "dark" personality and be generally supportive of the dark personality of all other moderators.

8. You must master the art of typing in italics and colors.

9. You must memorize the Secret Red Dot Code for dirty words.

10. Finally, you must know how to use a Ouija board in determining all moderator decisions. All moderators must provide their own Ouija boards.

Oh sure, try to show me up.

I guess that means you have the makings of being a moderator. j/k

Oh wait, you're going to college so I guess you're out. Oh well.

OMG, LOL! That was hilarious Sheeprun.

By Queenhavok (Queenhavok) on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - 12:52 pm: Edit

OH MY GOD!!!

I totally qualify. I can't belive it. I knew all my decisions in life would come in handy.

Can't believe my mother thought I'd never amount to anything. Well as you can see I had the last laugh.

I have a question. Deep in their heart of hearts, don't you think the moderators (who, as one of them said, cover the spectrum in terms of personal idealogy) would love to post some responses to our posts when they really disagree? Don't you think they're sometimes burning to enter the conversation?

And in fact, how do we know they don't? Maybe one of them is . . . . .

Everyone, listen... I found out that someone on this board is a Mod posing as a normal poster!! His name is

Edited. This message or any record of this message has never existed.

Alright, you caught me! It's me! It's me. I am the impostor.

By Copper45 (Copper45) on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - 03:12 pm: Edit

LOL. Quite humurous, sheeprun. You are in the running as my favorite mod.

Idiias and I went on a cruise in early January 2003 on Royal Caribbean, I think it was Enchantment of the Seas. I haven't seen him since.

Sheeprun: do you write for Letterman or Leno?

By Geniusash (Geniusash) on Thursday, August 12, 2004 - 08:10 pm: Edit

Ah!
1984 flashback
Ah!

Sheeprun, pleasantly sarcastic (and by pleasantly, I mean unpleasantly) since 2002?

Sheeprun, my mother would yell at you for having an "attitude." Which I never understood, because don't we ALL have some sort of attitude, all the time. Anyways, back on the topic... pretty funny stuff. I wanna go on a cruise!

Hey Sheeprun,

I remember last time i asked the same question, your answer was that I had to go to hollywood, make myself some kind of movie star and get into the caste of "star trek" at least once in a series, and you guys at CC give nice caps, T-shirts, mugs with large shining "CC mod" printed on them.

By Sheeprun (Sheeprun) on Friday, August 20, 2004 - 03:19 pm: Edit

The "Powers That Be" cut out all the nice freebies for moderators a few months ago. NOW all the moderators are forced to have large CC "security" chips implanted in their forearms, have their hair cut in the official CC Mullet style, and attend CC Boot Camp every other weekend.

The chip implant is nearly the size of a Kit Kat bar and hurts something awful; the mullet isn't too attractive on a sheep; the Boot Camp is run by Muqtada al-Sadr ---- but the free ride at Harvard makes it all worth it!

why did the mods delete my question about the quadrilateral inscribed in a circle. i thought the question was cool and my solution too, but i don't know why it was deleted. it was on sat preparations and it was called silly math question.



We thought it was a secretly coded instruction for terrorist "sleeper" cells in the Des Moines area.


Some threads (like THIS one) need to be deleted---and aren't. Some threads (perhaps like yours) deserve immortality---but got canned for some reason. Presently we get it right about 93.653% of the time.

"but the free ride at Harvard makes it all worth it!"

Yea, but the free ride is to a grassy area to trim the grass...when Sheeprun said "ride" it meant ride as in travel by vehicle...






That's certainly correct. I never did care much for that shepherd OR his pair of Border Collies constantly nipping at my heels! The free ride to Harvard aboard the air conditioned livestock van is much preferred...

NO SPANISH? I FEEL INSULTED
