You got it right, @RT . We have private forums for Mods and Trusted Advisors. When we recognize the need for additional help, we start a new thread to discuss potential people to step up to those positions. As you mentioned, we consider a lot of things, including how long they've been a member, how active they are on the site, the quality of the advice, and also ability to handle/defuse difficult situations, especially in the case of Moderators. We're very fortunate to have so many great people here volunteering their time and it's sometimes difficult to narrow down the list when a position opens up!Having said that, I do hope an Admin or Mod will chime in if and correct me if I'm mistaken here
