    You don't sound to be excited about becoming a Moderator.
    You started out by saying you wanted to know how to move up.

    For people who contribute to writing the book there is also "E-book Developer". This gives me a expanded private mail box (which I will soon have to cull) here on AAC and the title, but other than that I'm a conventional member. Anyone willing to write for the AAC book can get the title, it is pretty much voluntary. In my experience a lot of my friends would rather take a whipping than write, it is hard work (to them). If you are on a forum a lot of that goes away.

    While not part of the title I take it upon myself to look at correction requests for the AAC book and vet whether they are legitimate or not.

    So to complete Bertus's list there is also...

    E-book Developer

    A mod does the day to day work on the board. They make sure things stay civil, and that members abide by the rules (beginners new to the site regularly break the rules through ignorance). If necessary they can ban abusive people, this site will not put up with abuse or flame wars. People can and do disagree, but it can be done civilly. On AAC it is a requirement.

    The administrators can do everything a mod does, but mainly they focus on technical issues with the web site.

    Within these groups I'm sure they have their own hierarchy, but we don't get to see any of that.
