I wondered that but i reckon like most sites it must be voluntary!

P.S - Did you get the crispys???
#2

Never been answered before though :-D
#3

Well they lost there crispiness after being in the tumble dryer for an hour. :giggle:

Whenever you get the chance mate will be fine. Don't go out of your way. :thumbsup:
#5
I'd guess its voluntary.
[admin]#6
It's not my place to answer but personally I don't think it's a very polite question.

From my perspective I'd say the work all the mods do on here is invaluable.

That'll be a yes then :whistling:
#9
Oh right, Didn't realise they are paid.

Do you need to recruit any more mods?
[admin]#10
err I think you need to look up the word "invaluable"
#11
For those who are too lazy too as copy and pasted from Dictionary.com

"beyond calculable or appraisable value; of inestimable worth; priceless"
#12
I have been using this site quite a long time now but i think sometimes the comments are a bit straight to the point and not with much humour.Like this topic it is just a bit of fun and not that serious and nobody really cares if the question is answered or not.Basically most of the time we are just passing time and making conversations just my opinion.

Admin

It was only a question, which was meant in a bit of jest and doesnt need to be answered if no Mod wishes to.

sheeeeeesh !!

what next, ....no talking on this forum:whistling:

So you're now saying I couldn't ever be invaluable :thinking: ?

I'll have you know i'm unique, there is only 1 of me, That makes me invaluable :p
#15
Ah Abacus thanks for that comment, i see at least someone is on the same wave length as me

well done mate :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

we only mentioned the Mods :thumbsup: :p
[admin]#17
Was in regards to the first part of your post Iom-RF.

The rest of you - who's taking things seriously? Yikes - take a breather!

In any case this is Comments & Suggestions not Misc so things in here should be taken more seriously in any case.
#18
oops lol wrong thread then !
banned#19
I think we all know the answer, simply from the responses that are always given to the question. Most sites don't pay, but this is a business site or atleast a money making site for the owner.

Daft thing is that I bet a lot of people would do it for nothing anyway, but maybe the standard would slip.

Would be interesting to know, if they are paid, is it pay per minute of modding, because a few mods put a fair few more hours in then others?
#20
Lee, would you put up with some of the crap that goes down on here, especially from people like me, for nowt? I know I wouldn't. :whistling: :giggle: :giggle:
If they get paid per post removal, some of the Mods would be loaded :p

And Yes, they do a good job, most of the time. ;-)

Yeh i suppose Dino, there must be something in it for them !
yes they do a good job most of the time altho sometimes i think the removal of posts are a bit o.t.t
Some of the forums i visit you can say pretty much anything you want on them and there still pretty good at not getting out of hand, this forum is the one thats the most strict.

[LEFT]Nice sig :giggle:
When we first started posting the site only had about 8,000 members, now look at it, over 40,000. The number of Mods ain't increased but the work has. I suppose 'short cuts' will happen just to get the job done.

Is that the way your thinking? if a mod decides that that person just hasn't the time to overlook the thread they just delete it?
So in a fact its finished with so they can move onto something else quicker?

i hope not or this thread might get deleted :giggle: :giggle:

Bit of harmless banter my old friend Dino :thumbsup:, no names mentioned and all that :whistling:


Oh thanks for the sig idea, to be honest tho, i think your just waisting your time copying and pasting it onto the forum every time, maybe just once in the thread your talking in might just be needed mate.

I was referring to pm's from the Mods when they remove a post/thread.
When I first started reporting 'dodgy' posts the Mod that removed it used to pm me, just to say thanks. Now only 1 Mod bothers to PM me. That's an example of a 'short cut'. :thumbsup:
I agree with you about the sig.
#25
Ah i see Dino :thumbsup:
#26
The above.


The mods rarely do take these "short-cuts". Most posts are reviewed and we try to leave people to their own deivces as much as possible, but sometimes it's necessary to:

a) Tidy up deal posts.
b) Delete duplicate deal posts.
c) Delete anything which people have rep[orted to a satisfactory level where we realise it may cause problems/offence to others.
d) Try not to let the forum cluttered with many similar deals/threads.

To be honest, with so many new posts, new threads and new members it can all be daunting to a newbie in here. That's why, I for one, am not keen with lots of "spammy" threads in the Misc forum. It looks a mess and gets a little bit depressing. Whilst you may "like it like that", "know where everything is" and "it's comfy" and all of those other excuses you get out of to tidy up around the house, it's true that it doesn't look that great and I'm sure there's some dirt hiding under the rim.

So, to sum it up... we TRY to be leniant BUT you must remember that the site's main focuses are deals, advice and keeping it friendly for the VISITORS, not just the "regulars".

:)

I have always been curious to know if the mods here get paid or not, but on the few occasions it's been brought up it's been skirted around so I don't think they want us to know for sure (which is fair dos!) heh.

Most sites do have voluntary mods, but given the amount of moolah this place must make (I clicked a link to an argos deal the other day, must have gone through at least 4 referral urls before finally getting there!) I think the mods would be absolutely crazy to do it for nowt!

Do you get paid from Admin (who has to dig very deep into his pockets to even hand over 10p....only kidding lol) to Mod this site or is all voluntary work?
or do you get discounts from modding this site all the time?

Iv always been curious on that question :? :? :whistling:


Hmmmmm or should be the question "will you answer that question truthfully?" lol


May be you should ask that question under the Freedom of Information act, I don't know why the subject is treated so secretly. If people are doing a job they deserved to get some compensation for it, whether it is financial or otherwise.
#30
Admin seems to skirt round the question. I'm a simple yes or no man. This just needs a yes or no answer. The OP was asking quite a simple question.

Which makes me wonder if they get 'paid' indirectly. Via Quidco perhaps? :whistling:

Some mods have let on in the past how much they have been expecting via this cashback site :-D

I think one said £200 but thats hardly going to be enough to be classed as an income, I'd say thats from buying purchases, Not that its any of my business.

I'm not going to go into the figures but, that would be per month and possibly tax free ;-)

Not sure if mods are part time or full time.
[mod]#33
To be honest...i don't really care if they get paid or not.

It's a bit like asking us all to post our earnings from our jobs in a thread. Could you imagine the grief it would lead to when people see how much some people earn compared to others here.
#34
No Syzable, i only asked if Mods got paid, not how much they got paid (thats none of my business)

Yeah, i understand that mate. I was answering to the way the question was being turned round to how much they get. :thumbsup:

The OP was only asking if they got paid - not how much.

It seems a fair question. I suppose the risk is that if they say yes folk might then want to know how much :p

And I'm sure there was a post many moons ago which asked what you earnt on a voting scale thingy - I'm rubbish at searching has this question been asked? :oops:
#37
Yeh i seen that :thumbsup: :p

Yes but i was replied "it isnt a very poite question", some people dont think so for which i say thanks to.

Anyway we have only had ducky on this thread, wonder if any other mod will join us or are the ducking and a diving this thread :giggle: :p
#39
I think you can take it that mods do get paid saxo..whether that is in cash or kind ( like vouchers) ..well only Admin and the mods can answer.

Whatever I think they deserve all they get and do a really good job...so keep it up guys.
