There are three main ways to become a moderator.
- By creating your own community
When you create a community, you automatically become the top moderator of that community.
- By making a request
If a community you’re interested in has been abandoned or is unmoderated, you can make a request in r/redditrequest to take it over. If your request is granted, you’ll become the top moderator of that community.
- By requesting an invitation
If you'd like to moderate an existing community, ask one of the community's existing moderators if you can join them. If they’d like to add you to the moderator team, you’ll be sent an invitation. Many communities actively look for moderators too, so you can also visit r/needamod to see who needs help.
