Depends on who you ask. I dont want to be a mod so none. But for others it is to help the site or for personal gain.

There is no personal gain, and if you act in that vein, you will be the least popular person in DDO history.

The motives are important. I don't think that innomen will give powers to whoever is president, but I also hope that the power changes hands somewhat, if someone else is elected. Possibly a form of assent?

I would be a mod. Sounds cool. I know it has a lot of responsibility, but it would be really cool to help out this site more than just with my amazing troll debates. All jokes aside, I can be very serious when I want to.

being a mod is a real b*tch because you have people complain about just about everyone all the time, if people get banned it could be an issue if that person was actually popular, and people just get real liberal when reporting people. The fact that this happens almost all the time too makes a Mod's life pretty close to hell, especially if a attention whore comes along and makes a big deal out of something really stupid.

The Presidency and Moderating positions are independent from each other entirely.

While one may be both President and have moderator powers, whoever receives mod powers will have them because of decisions irrelevant to the election.

I would still like the responsibility of it. Everything has drawbacks to it, but it still seems like something I could do. I think it would be interesting to handle cases such as with inferno and writerdave.

From what i've heard it's deciding on banning people and handling complaints from DDO players. I also think that they have a link with Juggle.
