This should explain it
The exeptions part is the one that explains it the mostDue to the amount of applications we receive, we needed to set some minimum application requirements. If you do not meet the minimum requirements, your application will be automatically declined.
Premium Member: You will automatically become a Premium Member when you have 250 posts and 10 reputation from any section(s).
Moderator of a section: At least 200 posts, 10 reputation from the section you are applying for, and have been an active member of the community for 2 months.
Global Moderator: Must be at least 16 years old, at least 1000 posts, 20 reputation, and have been an active member of the community for 4 months
Exceptions To These Requirements:
Due to the fact that some people meet the reputation requirements, but don't have the required amount of posts, we are now making some exceptions. We are using a substitution method to make exceptions. For example, you can substitute 1 reputation for 25 posts and 5 reputation for 1 month of activity.
