    A pentient for pedantry, a knack for nazi-ness, a craft for craziness. – George Stocker Sep 9 '13 at 13:09

    If you are new, you probably shouldn't be asking this question. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 9 '13 at 13:14

    @BoltClock'saUnicorn If you've been here for a while, you probably shouldn't be asking the question either. ;) – Bart Sep 9 '13 at 13:15

You must be elected by the community. Here is the most recent election.

You also must have these badges:

  • Civic Duty
  • Strunk & White
  • Deputy
  • Convention

And you must have 3000 reputation or more.

    The badge requirements are only for SO right now, and the reputation requirements are different on other sites as well. – Mad Scientist Sep 9 '13 at 13:06
