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...

For less than a day and then they all forgot about it.

Yes, reddit community cares about her, but the people who run that place don't. Even if the mods shut down their subs, it is not their site. It's Ellen Pao's and the admins.

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.

While I don't think modship is appropriate (for all the above). If she was good at her job, then I think it's a good incentive to hire her for a similar role. Maybe not iama specific, but something specific to community involvement.

That said if Voat can't afford to keep their servers up I doubt they can afford to hire a new employee.

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.
