Do they get paid? Or is it a volunteer position? Thank you very much for your help. Also please move this to meta since I can't do that.
Community moderators are all volunteers and do not get paid, though we do occasionally send them some swag.
I got a neat 12 oz math.stackexchange.com mug when I became a mod, but after that, nothing. I don't know if the devs or SE staff get any compensation (other than god-like powers on all sites).
Nobody has paid me anything yet.
