No, I wouldn't do anything at all to become a mod.
In fact, if Tom called me and said that he was looking to mod someone, perhaps me, I'd ask if he could ask again later.
I'm fine with the responsibility, but I would have to post less, be online more, and I wouldn't be able to say whatever I please.
I assume that when a mod posts in a thread, most people read it. When I post in a thread, it could go either way. I'm not sure I could get used to the extra attention with my current level of maturity. I'm too young to be a mod and I haven't been here long enough.
Don't get me wrong, I know if I'm as good of a poster as I am now, in the future, I'd be totally up to it.
Not up to it enough for gay secks, though.
