Just a little FYI here....you do not need to be a Gift Guru or Gift Coach to be asked

Most moderators were Gift Guru's or Gift Coaches before they got nominated to become a moderator. You usually have to have Gift Exchange expirience.
This comes straight from the FAQ:
""Moderators oversee specific forums. They generally have the ability to edit and delete posts, move threads, and perform other manipulations. Becoming a moderator for a specific forum is usually rewarded to users who are particularly helpful and knowledgeable in the subject of the forum they are moderating. In order to be a moderator, you must be an adult. In addition, you have to be an active member of the community. The way we currently do it is, when a current moderator or administrator notices someone they think is a potential candidate, they are nominated and watched for a period of time. When everyone agrees, we give them "the tap" and offer them a position. They are not required to take it, it is up to them!""
I hope that helps!
