For those who like to participate in online communities and conversations, becoming a chat room moderator can be a great way to become more involved or even to generate some extra cash. Some chat room moderator positions are paid, but most are volunteer positions. The moderator's responsibilities typically include answering questions or making sure no one uses inappropriate or vulgar language within the chat. This responsibility can be especially important in teen-based chat rooms since most members are not adults.
