Actually in the moderator application set up it mentions having a high rep will help haha, but again I don't think everyone should just want to be a moderator. They're people just like us, except while we get to chat away on this forum they have to keep it in order.
Aside from that, don't beat yourself up about rep. If you really want rep check out the player help section, an easy way to get rep is via helping people out with information, player trades, or helping them with a boss. People tend to be thankful for such things, especially on certain bosses like Four Kings or people needing directions in Btown. Just keep an eye out for people playing as a level one dark wraith needing help defeating Gwyn.
