Kotaku: Should moderators be paid?

Recommended Posts

I'd say yes, they should be paid. Take a lot of patience to clean salty comments from raging kids over the internet. On the other side, if they are paid, they kinda lose their "freedom" of having their own opinion and would most likely dodoride their bosses by enforcing the compagny's philosophy to continue to get that fat paycheck. Could point you an example from earlier. ::wink:: ::wink::  ;)

Our volunteers aren't on a salary and "invincibleqc" is completely correct in that they would rather be a "third party". We prefer that too as they are WAY more of a community member and see things from our community users point of view. We do reward them for all their hard work with gifts,  and in many cases early access to our products.

I am going to lock this thread however, as my Spidey-Sense tells me that this thread will just turn into a bashing by people that have received warnings by our moderation team.
