Trainees, Moderators, and Sr. Mods are volunteer positions. They are not paid. Admins+ are paid, I think this includes Support agents. Since you can apply to be a trainee, and trainees get promoted to moderators it would not make sense for Mineplex to pay moderators (due to having so many of them). You're talking about Mineplex? Do you have evidence of someone credible who said they were paid?
