This is your chance to take back control and vote for your favorite community member to become a moderator. On Awesome Metal Bands, we believe the moderators should come from the community, and be elected by the community itself through popular vote. We hold regular elections to determine who these community moderators will be.

Community moderators are awarded the highest level of privilege in the chat, and should themselves be examples of positive behavior and leaders within the community. Please participate in the moderator elections by voting, "YES" or "NO" and perhaps even by nominating yourself to be a community moderator!

Every election has three phases:

- Reading the Rules
- Moderator Test
- Election (35 days of voting)

The community has 35 days to vote and in order to be moderated you are required to gain a clear 20 "YES" votes. All no votes will be deducted.

Key Points

- 20 clear votes to be moderated ("No" votes are deducted from overall score)
- 6 months before re-applying

Please note that failure to get a "YES" outcome with a clear 20 votes will result in having to wait six months for another chance. It is important to make sure you have the community support before deciding to become a moderator.
