How do I become a moderator?

When you create a community, you automatically become its first moderator. You can then add other users as moderators.

If you'd like to moderate an existing community, you will need to ask one of the community's existing moderators to add you. Many communities actively look for volunteer moderators, so please visit r/needamod to see who needs help.

If you are interested in an abandoned community, ask to become that community's moderator by posting in r/redditrequest.
