Nope! That’s wrong! Envato Staff are Envato Staff, moderators, like myself are volunteers. Long time authors with experience in community matters. We are not paid, we don’t get any extra perks. We love this community and we do our best to help and keep it clean!
Moderators are not Staff. Know the difference!
Moderator roles are assigned by staff. There are no contests held and these positions are not made public. If you the community requires mods, the staff will nominate!
Wrong again. We appreciate all the help we get from the community, but replying to 1035302 posts does not guarantee you’ll be a moderator. There have been plenty of authors that have done this but in the grand scheme of things they did not have the qualities staff looked for.
Be yourself mate. Answer whenever you can, and concentrate on evolving along side the community, if you’re great, you’ll get picked. The community is ever growing, and staff are ever looking. Although these are not publicly announced, new moderators appear each year!
