I was a mod for years on other sites including vehicles (a couple car sites and a truck site). You do need to be active but it depends on the site. On some sites you can be a mod of just one sub-forum and still get hammered with 100+ posts a day to weed through. On slower sites or highly specialized sites you can be a full forum mod and still only deal with 15-20 posts a day. I am guessing this site would lean towards the latter!
It is good to have redundant mods as well so one person does not get overwhelmed or if they cant make it to their computer for a while - sick, vacation, just need a break, etc. Normally there is a "Head" admin/Super Mod who controls the whole site. Then there are sub-mods who can also control the whole site or just certain forums. The head mod can do things like ban a member from posting vs. a sub-mod. A sub-mod can do things like delete posts, warn about banning, etc. they just cant outright delete the member.
Day to day stuff would be reading posts, deleting/editing objectionable content (swear words, NSFW stuff, etc), delete spam posts and things like that. On large forums we had specialized mods in the sub forums. I raced and wrenched on my car a lot so I was a sub-mod in the racing/performance forum. We had others who were specialists in the audio/video forum. Others who were paint and detailing experts in that forum and on it goes.
On this forum? I really think you just need a couple sub-mods who can weed out the spam and/or objectionable content that pops up or any arguments. I'll send you a PM. I am not nearly as active as Mr Rad is but I am normally around!
