I'd agree on the fact that this forum comes across self moderated (though we all know it isn't), it has a nice friendly feel about it, well done to all involved, both front of house and behind the scenes.

Seriously though, potential mods are generally nominated by a founder/admin/mod team member, as deemed necessary.
Attributes we look for are maturity, good communication skills, high levels of knowledge and experience,and the ability to exercise tact and diplomacy. You should be a well-balanced individual who is active and contributes in a very positive manner to the overall running of the forum, putting others before yourself.
There are many members that fit this bill, and I thank you all for that from my heart. Your efforts are noticed and appreciated, even if I don't personally thank the individuals concerned.
Please keep up the great work and when necessary and appropriate you may well get an invite on to the mod team.
