Pretty sure she can leverage her current position into something more lucrative than a mod on voat

It is not about money, it is about showing that people care for her and appreciate all the work she has done. Being a mod would be different from working for voat, as she did with reddit, so she do that and have a job at the same time. She wouldn't be as involved as she used to be, but she would be still an important part of the community. A community that cares about here.

She already has a community that cares about her, it's called reddit and they shut down their site for her...

This is completely asinine.

"Here Victoria, have a modship. It's something you never asked for and you don't get paid for being one yet you need to be active in your freetime! You can have the powers to edit and control this subverse! Did I mention you still have to find another job?"

Why is this even a discussion? This is a random person who we only know through iAmA at reddit. It sucks that she lost her job but why are we trying to assign her something she didn't even ask for? Leave the modship to people who actually want it and who can actually improve the subverse.

It's easy to say that it's not about money and other idealistic stuff when it's stuff when it's someone else's money, time, and career you're talking about.

aren't you speaking for her a bit much?

Mods don't make any money at all...

The position could even be honorary. Nobody's imagining that Voat is gonna pay her salary and shit, lol.

Actually, Voat doesn't have to pay her a salary. She could be hired as agent/assistant/liaison by the celebrity's PR team for AMAs and receive a fee for her services. Meanwhile, she is a trusted voice who people recognize so she would "legitimize" the celebrity doing the AMA.
