Sort of funny. The tips were a little distracting from the article. Steps 2 and 3 could use some work, they're short and need more jokes. The opening could be more formal. It throws you into the article too quickly. You don't really absorb the details from the list. This article really starts to lose its shine after step 1. More elaboration in the steps 2 and 3 could help this article alot.
I like the concept. Has alot of potential. Adding more drastic measures to obtaining sysop would be great, maybe a sense of paranoia, too. You put a humorous light on the topic, and that's (almost) always a good thing.
Prose and formatting:
A few minor grammar problems that can be easily overlooked. Commas don't seem right at certain places to me. A few minor punctuation errors. Could use some bold text to draw attention. Needs more links, especially after step 1.
Needs more images. Not many more images, but a few more could add to the humor of the article. The one image in the article is hard to distinguish. Maybe you could break it up into more images.
A good work in progress. Could use more jokes and details in the "step" section. Remember details are always the most important part of a work. You can never have too many details. I enjoyed reading this article.
