I'm just guessing, but probably the same thing it takes in other forums: being active, helpful, contributing, polite, and not asking how to become a mod. ;)
You might have to sacrifice a hard drive or two to the God Of Computers, too, and gift @Xyphien something blue, just for good measure.

Generally when it comes to becoming a Mod you have to show yourself dependable to be able to judge/handle situations.
I guess this is the basis of any administrative work. I for example had already been Staff on several of Xyphiens old forums and have known him for a long time, so i would guess he found me appropriate for the situation as i have an huge dislike of messing things up. Well, even if i try not to mess up it happens naturally, Either by sounding to harsh or choosing my wording poorly.

@CasualCastiel showed a lot activity, is pretty darn informative, Positive, Mature yet playful. Some very good traits for a mod ^_^ which is probably why she was asked to be a Mod in Training :)

It takes devotion to the site (as in devoting time), an understanding of the rules (a mod enforces the rules, so they must know them), and a constructive aura that doesn't scare away members.

Same goes for me. That's how I became staff. I'm always there when he opens a new forum.

This is a very important step to becoming a mod on any of Xyphien's forums.
