I get to be a part of the best staff on the internet. Forge life long friendships with other moderators and the owners/admin. As well as get a first
hand taste of what it is to help run this wonderful place.
It's a great feeling to know that your hand helps keep this place as great as it is.
Other than that, I love this place, have since I joined back in 2008. The community is what brings me back.
Are there any perks too being a mod?.
Being mod is nothing more than being a member, the only difference is that we are entrusted with tools that allow us to moderate the boards and make
sure that everybody is conforming to the Terms & Conditions.
Do you get paid or get any freebies for your time and effort?
Nah we save all that stuff for our annual sacrifice of to be banned members...
But no, we do this for free, because we love this place.
Do you enjoy being a mod?
Yes I do love it. It's tough some days dealing with the ins and outs of T&C infractions and members that are less than cordial, but mostly the
interactions with members are always enjoyable.
Are there any drawbacks to being a mod?
As stated above, there are bad days. They never outweight the good ones. I think the biggest drawback IMO is having your opinion somehow looked at
differently because of mod status. But that's easily handled and not such a big deal..
