Its up to the admin to decide who shall become a mod and in what area of the website. There really only two area in which a person can be "Promoted" to a mod. Its really the gallary mod and the standard froum mod on this website, I think. And its also depend on how long you have been with the website, age may effect the decision of the admin but I'm not sure. And I think you just lost your chance of becoming a mod by asking that question.
