If you would search this forum for How Moderator, you will get your answer. It has been discussed many times.

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.

He didn't mentionn the EFH 'craft' solution:

You'll need an assortment of newspapers and magazines, a 'clean room', piece of paper, glue and scissors. Glue a collection of letters on the paper and mail to Paul

i think a better question is "Why would you WANT to be a bartender/sheriff???"

Sure, there's the whole "power corrupts, absolute power is pretty cool" argument, but only one person has absolute powere here, right?

My plan is to tell a few hundred more people to change their names, use code tags, and not cross post.

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...

Great. Seeing unformatted codes is really challenging!

Not to mention replying to someone who wouldn't even reveal his real name.
