Do the DS Mods get compensation?

Postby Ten Fingers Typing » Thu Jun 17, 2010 10:40 am

Someone brought this up on the blog.

Does anyone know if they get compensated for their hard work?

Karla, as far as anyone knows, they don't get compensated. They're just on a perpetual high from the sheer prestige of it.

Personally, I can't believe they're not slipping Mommy something, although her slavish 24/7 devotion to patrolling the boards can probably be had for an extra 50 cents a week.

If they are getting paid, they must be sworn to secrecy on pain of death.

Maybe, though, there are other perks. Guaranteed ticket to the DS contractor's conference (or whatever it was), ability to take on more roles (such as titling), getting inside information into what is coming down the pike, kid gloves handling when it comes to reject appeals, or easy acceptance into the higher paying publisher projects.

Who knows. I cannot believe these people would do what they do only for the feeling of control it gives them. But, one never can tell.

Donna, those are all very good possibilities. You'd like to think there's SOMETHING in it for them beyond sheer ego.

But I have noticed lately that Dirk, ElizabethS, and JoshWriter seem to be much less of a presence lately. Have you? They were in the first batch elevated, and for a long time they were all over the place. The only one of that group who still seems to keep her finger in every pie is Mommy. Give her one free trip and she's yours forever.

And they've brought in a few new ones, I would assume, to make up for the shortage of jack boots on the ground.

So whatever the perks are, they must not be a lasting incentive.

When I first started, it seems like the mods were basically there for Q&A, specifically for newbies. Now, though, it seems like the mods are interjecting their opinions left and right about "proper" forum behavior. Well, ok, just one is. But unfortunately, she's the most prominent mod. It's incredible how much she butts in.

I swear I read on the DS forums that mods received some kind of monetary compensation. I think it was in one of those "Congrats XXX on being a new mod" threads. I could be wrong...but I swear I remember something of the sort.

I don't know. I know that, in titling, I was once asked to monitor the titling group over a holiday weekend. This was when I was still willing to kiss ass (in the hopes of having better money opportunities) and before I got on their shit list.

At any rate, no compensation was offered. However, there is one person who seems to make a lot of Mod-ish posts, maybe she IS getting compensation.

Who knows.
