    Mod is short for "moderator". A person who makes sure the rules of a forum are followed, gives some help to users and generally tries to make things run smoothly.

    Some other characteristics vary from forum to forum.

    Oh yes, well....there IS that. The TPF staff thing.

    In hipper times, it also meant groovy, with-it, happenin', short for "modern"..... :lol:
