Khan and I, besides the TPS reports the admins require, also had to go through training as two of the newer moderators. Here's a video of yesterday's session (Khan is the one with the curly hair; Martha is the dark-haired supervisor):

Good grief, I just came home from the store, made a cup of tea, logged in, and now I have nose-spit tea all over my monitor.

Anyway, I guess the serious answer is "4-8 hours a week," but the real answer is "we don't notice how much time it takes, because we're on the ER Forum so much anyway..."

If only HOA board members had the same sense of humor...

Well done moderators. For all the hard work, fair play, dedication and good will, I propose: from here on you can name your salary.

When I was usefully employed, used to call my salary: Josephine. As in Josephine Baker , the dancer.
There must be moderation in everything, including moderation.

I bill for my time that I spend reading the forums. After all, looking through all the wise, witty and intelligent posts for spam is part of the job.

The most time-consuming aspect of it was trying to learn the secret handshake, actually.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

I try to put in as much time as some of our most dedicated mods, but don't always measure up. Those of us still working have some ebb and flow to our activities and I just try not to (always) be the slacker on the crew!
