So I actually own a forum and am a moderator and got volunteer co-moderators to get coverage, it’s on a topic and products I use regularly. I arrange the funding and hosting. So I am knowledgeable and interested, asking my own questions when I don’t know the answer, and answering other questions when I am more knowledgeable. As there are no free things, no giveaways, there is no real need for the type of abuse this forum here can come under of bots, fake accounts and people trying to get free stuff. As such, moderating is very easy, just a couple of bad situations a year (mostly a fake user who then tries to post links to products for sale).
The issue with being an Eufy moderator is there are many Eufy products, you can’t really own all of them or have ownership experience, the products are expensive, for example you can only own so many EufyCams so unlikely you have one of each.
So the moderator roles I do are not burdensome, in many ways means I can get stuff done without asking a moderator to do it for me, but I can see the Eufy one being burdensome.
Personally I just think they should pay someone or give them an annual credit $$$ to spend on anything Eufy security
The other aspect is how much time you can give, and when you can give it. Remember many of us have been forced to stay home, so time spent unable to moderate (driving, working, moving around) has been less for most of us. In my case the lockdown then a broken arm, coming out of winter meant I’ve have months of being able to be look at a screen, but recently I have been spending many hours moving and incapable of timely moderating.
