> Hmmis thmm - mentors get paid? This is the first time I heard of this.

No they're not. Once again, I'm not using the right English word. You
guessed it, I'm not a native speaker and my language shares so many words
with English but with sometimes a subtle difference in the meaning. :-D

Anyway, last year, we ended up with some money that has been shared among
mentors. But it's unusual, and certainly not the rule. Sometimes it
happens. Most of the time not. I mentored since 2013 and I think I received
money once or twice, maybe. But for sure, I had fun doing it

By the way, do you want to participate as a mentor this year?
