What does a moderator do?

A moderator is just a regular user like you except they volunteer to perform a few humble duties within the community. Moderators are required to actively browse the forum and respond to reported threads and posts, removing those that break the forum rules. Note that "actively" typically means for multiple hours a day. While we don't have any specific minimum activity requirements, we will not keep moderators around that do not have the time to contribute. That being said, most mod actions can be done via multitasking and do not require your complete attention.
