I looked in the mod logs to see who deleted your thread and it was actually my bad
. I had a bunch of threads open in various tabs, and I meant to delete a repeat thread. Must have done yours instead.
To make it up, I'll answer your question.
It all depends. If there is a need for new mods, us administraters will sometimes ask mods to suggest candidates. Other times we'll think of them ourselves. Myself, I was originally suggested by a mod at the time because I was a regular contributor to the (now defunct) Sheep's Pen and rankings team. So members who are in good standing, aren't raging pricks and have been around a while are often considered.
