Who moderates the moderaters?

Seems any time you say something that does not align with their belief they repremand.

As to who moderates the moderators? That would be those of us with 3 stars, the Administrators. You will see a link on the main page called Forum Leadership, and you will find the Administrators there. You can drop any of us a PM. If we can't deal with it, we can refer you on to Internet Brands, where our bosses are.

It's not so much our (possible) belief system. But if you break the Guidelines, you will be reprimanded, warned, yellow flagged and whatnot, depending on your posting history. Before taking any action we'll have a discussion, getting more than just one Mod's opinion to it. Emergencies (obvious spamming, grossly offensive pictures and such) will be dealt with immediately, and discussed later.

If you feel you have been unfairly treated, first point it out to the Mods. If you're not happy with that reply, talk to Admins.

I say a lot of dumb, useless crap. Only been reprimanded once, and rightfully so.

But then, the fresh home-baked cookies delivered to their doorstep weekly probably help....

My question is how one gets elected to moderator status? Is there a post about this, or is it a seniority thing?

Most moderation is done on a case by case basis, and usually only after a thread is reported by another member.

After a thread or post is reported to the moderators, it gets it's own thread in the mod's forum, where discussion occurs and action is taken.

If you have a problem with moderation, please use the Forum Suggestions and User Assistance forum.

http://www.bikeforums.net/forum-suggestions-user-assistance/

or report your concerns to an administrator, who can be indenitifed by the three blue stars next to their user name.

You're not elected, it's penance.

Yeah, it's a penance, but the blue star tattoo on the forehead is kinda cool, esp. if you are a Dallas Cowboy fan.
