I always wondered, do mods moderate for a living?

Because Tom's gotta have a lot of trust in someone for giving someone that job.

Probably not, or more mods would be on at a time.

The real question: how do mods earn enough money for standard living? Do they mostly live with their mommies? BigBadRon?

No, you don't get paid for being a mod. And why would Tom have to trust them? They don't have that much power.

Some kind of employment I imagine.

Do they mostly live with their mommies?

Like yourself? I can't speak for the others, but I haven't lived with my mother in years.

I agree with Gerardus.

Also, why a check from '05?

Already had the picture handy. No point in taking another. I had three mod positions at that point in '05, for those of you who think only BBS mods get the riches.

For the new guys, Tom logs our hours and sends us a check.

The vets get salary, vacation time, etc.

With the amount of mods the BBS has, the forums must be a money pit.

You actually get paid for being a mod? I thought it was all volunteer?

Photoshop sucks when you don't know how to use it.

Because an old picture of a check + blurred out details = fake. No doubt.

It's a dead end job.

Much like being a regular at this forum.

Why would we know what other mods get paid? It's personal information, and it's based on activity (Ban points? You bet). Since rates and activity levels vary all the time between different times and different mods, it's completely impossible to answer anyway.
