I'll summarize if you don't feel like doing the search.
Basically, you'll need $800 in uncirculated U.S. currency, some brown paper, some twine, and a black magic marker. Wrap up the money in the brown paper, tie it up good with the twine, and write your name on it with the marker. Leave the whole thing under the azelea bushes on Chestertown Street, two blocks up from my house. Then go home and wait.

If you do that, you already *are* a moderator - you are just lacking the official title.
And there actually are "moderators" at JavaRanch who actively *refused* to get the title. Which sounds reasonable to me - I nearly refused, too...
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
