I 100% agree, @Miss_K. Thank you for saying that. I used to play a game once that was based off of Club Penguin (oldcp.biz), and anyone had the potential to become a moderator in-game, and moderate the chat rooms - as long as they were "fit" for the position. But the moderators there... Well... They were terrible. All they did was talk to each other, being the "cool guys" and "cool gals", and did no real moderating.
But they all wanted to become a moderator, because they wanted power and respect.
Yes, I know, they did. But so many other people have asked for the moderation status as well, and I'm quite sure a few other people might have sent emails to Scarlet City Studios as well. But why were @Iliara_Mustardtop and @Jacoby_Elderfun1, of all people, chosen? Because they not only asked (confirming the fact that they would gladly spend the time and effort needed into moderating), but they also fit the bill, because they already tried to do as much good in their community as they could - without even becoming or asking to be moderators yet.
