58w ago - With the recent increase in activity in the PlayStation 3 scene we would like to bring on some new Forum Moderators here at PS3News.com.
Your responsibilities would include the following:
Log in near daily (not just visit)... every few days at most, as we'd expect you to be a PS3 fanatic like us!
Make at least (1) post a week answering someone's question or helping around the boards.
Lock any threads posted in the wrong Forum section directing them to repost in the proper one.
Lock any new (duplicate) threads started on existing topics, for example we have an ongoing thread for Rogero CFW so direct users there and close their new threads started on it.
Issue a verbal warning to those who break the Site Rules (only extremely blatant/obvious cases, the less serious offenders you do not have to worry about)
PS3News.com Forum Moderator Perks:
You will receive the Forum Moderator status title, or the ability to change it to what you wish.
You will see the least amount of ads while browsing the site as appreciation for your assistance.
You will be eligible to review new products or services for PS3News.com as they are available.
If you have a product, service or site you'd like to promote here we will allow to you in the Forums with a Sticky thread.
Who can become a Forum Moderator here and what is the selection process?
Anyone, however, we give preference to those who have contributed to the site in the form of quality (not quantity) Forum posts.
New or old members, however, if given the choice between equally qualified older vs newer candidates we typically pick the one who has been here making quality posts longer.
If anyone is interested, simply reply to this thread expressing your interest as long as you can meet the responsibilities criteria outlined above. We are seeking to add at least (2) dedicated Forum Moderators but may add up to (5) qualified candidates.
Finally, our current Forum Moderation Team (alphabetically) includes:

Apparently we use now Username HTML Markup for the UserGroup classes colors, so I don't think it's something you will be able to change yourself since it is customized to work this way, but if you have a Member Title you'd like to use just post it here and I will add it in the ACP so it shows for all your posts.
Oh hey, random question - after reading G's post right there I remembered I'm able to change my member title - although I'm used to vB it's been a while, and this forum seems to run a modified version (I'm outdated on SEO and all that stuff) so does anyone know how to change that? Thanks guys
Just a brief update, we have removed 4DoorITR and XBINX Cyro as they haven't been active (not logged in nor posting at all) since first responding to this thread... we'll see how things go over the next week before replacing them as we did choose few extras we didn't plan on initially.
One member who has been active and posting WAY more than I have even is G Sus, so even though he opted out of being a candidate he definitely fits the bill in my opinion... keep up the great work!
