There's a few stickies to read in the moderator's part of the forum, plus we get coached in IRC. From what I've seen new moderators ask about every little thing at first while getting the hang of things (I certainly did).

Yes, sort of a training period, every senior mod is helpful and keen about what the new moderators may have trouble with, full of good advice and happy to let them test and improve their skills. You all confirm junior mods, right?

Internet Relay Chat, it's basically multiplayer notepad. There's an official channel for KSP in the links at the top of the page.

Same as they have if they left rep display enabled. The forum software is still keeping track of accumulated rep.

Why infractions expire?

They expire so that people can hopefully learn, move on, and be good community members.

And what happens when they still active? o_O

Well, there is a system. If one accumulates too many infraction points over too few days then there are appropriate punies pour them, starting with post restrictions and ending with an interdit.

The moderation points accumulate if the poster receives more infractions. If a user reaches 25 points, they are added to the moderation queue until enough points expire to fall below 25 again.

In the space Lounge->Forum Games, I am a Game Moderator for "The Number War!." How do you guys feel about threads, such as forum games, that require users to act as Mods for that thread?

I think we'd rather you called yourself a referee or judge, using the term moderator may lead others to approach you with forum moderation stuff, which would not be appropriate.

So, pretty much, reaching 25 points simply puts you on the radar, so to speak?

Sort of. Any points get you on the radar since we don't hand out that many infractions, getting queued usually means earlier moderation attempts weren't effective.
