I sometimes do and sometimes don't. It looks cool and all, but probably gets boring / too many responsibilities after a week.
Although, there's no chance I'd ever become a mod since I've been banned twice and gotten 3 infractions, fo spamming and flaming, so hah lol, no way I'm gonna ever become a mod. :P
But either way, I'd like to think that I've earned the respect of most of the older members. More important than modship, imo.
But most of the people that joined after the D/P rush don't know me, I think.
