I still don't know what do you think we moderators and site staff in general do that you need to get there SO desperately to bring the topic up again and again...
It's been pointed out already in this thread, but let me underline: we don't get paid and we have no kind of privilege whatsoever outside this little and remote corner of the vast Internet. We are no members of any secret society (that I know of). Admins even work their butts off to keep the site running when technical hiccups occur every now and then. And the "privileges" you "enjoy" as a moderator or chat op, they are no privileges as such. You see them as privileges, I think of them as tools. You are given as a mod a series of tools in regards of forum control and you have the responsability of using them properly to keep the site civil and clean. As a fun addition, you get the word "Moderator" added under your profile pic so anyone can see why you have taken some action, but also, to denounce it to the admins in case of misuse of these tools.
Chief, as soon as I go offline from ST, I'm back to being Daniel, that dude who works at the labs in building 15 and still has problems to fill in some work related forms. Or whatever people think of me. Very few people in real life know about my ST activities, and the ones who know, couldn't care less about them. What matters, after all, is who you are in real life. And once the computer is off, we almighty moderators are back to being Daniel, the engineer; or Matías, the political science student; or Tim, the journalist and radio commentator; just to name a couple of us.
Hope this post can help you put things in perspective and help you understand why do you want to be a moderator so much. And sure you know that, but as reminder on the site guidelines:
15. Staff Positions
The site administrators pick only trusted, active, and helpful members to fill vacant positions. Staff positions are never obtained by asking or campaigning for them.
