Be on the site for a decent amount of time, understand the guidelines, play nice, and maybe the founders will ask you.

@tootmyfluther I think it means do as your told and be nice to everyone, and think like everyone else.

“Play nice” does not refer to some mind-sucking, independence eliminating, cloning of members. It means that you avoid starting unnecessary flame wars, name calling, and troll-like behavior. Differences of opinion are welcome and what makes a site like this a vital, interesting experience. Being able to discuss those differences of opinion in a polite, adult, and mutually respectful manner are what make this site exemplary.

@tootmyfluther Yeah, exactly what syz said.

Step one: Spend entirely too much time here. Step two: Be a good jelly (see the answer @syz gave). Step three: When asked to volunteer your time to be a mod, foolishly accept. Step four: When asked to become the manager, throw all caution to the wind and accept!

Your friendly (and foolish) Community Manager

PS: In all seriousness, I love my job. :)
