Why do you want to be a staff member anyway? You do understand that it is a lot of hard work, right? From what I've heard (someone on the IRC said it), most people who become staff members after a long time of wanting it end up hating it and quit soon after because it's not as fun as it works, and from what I've seen when I was doing my old timeline, they're right.
Supposedly asking to be staff will not hurt your chances of becoming staff, but it's frowned upon to just ask for it without giving any reasons for it because then it looks to others like you just want it for the powers, and I've seen people like this all the time.
I don't know any of this for certain though because I'm not a mod myself, but that's basically what's been said time and time again because you're not the first person to have made a thread asking about this.
