I remember that when I first signed up on ACC, I was really confused. So confused, in fact, that I stopped using it for like 6 months. When I came back, I was patient enough to learn everything. Now that I'm a Scout, I can help people who were in the same position as I was, since I know how frustrating it can be to not know how to do things.

I think the most rewarding thing for me is knowing that I have a role in ensuring the site is enjoyable for everyone.  I also enjoy the interaction with some members of the community while handling the various duties of a Mod.

ACC has been a great source of fun, comfort and friendship for me over the last several years and I feel great finally being able to give back to the site.

I love what SeaLion said, it's true.
But it's a great sense of accomplishment for a scout to see your adoptees become active and dedicated members or turn into staff members themselves.

What Kareth and Sealion said is what I feel is true for, except they worded it better than I could have. It's nice to be able to help new members and know that you've made a difference on this site.

I agree with SeaLion also.

I just like helping people too, and being a Scout lets me do that.

I can't really say that seeing other staff made me want to become one because I never really knew any beforehand. I couldn't be adopted because I didn't even realize ACC had forums for 4 months.

I really enjoy having the chance to give back to the community and helping to keep the site safe and enjoyable. To be honest, I also really like the interaction with the other members of Staff, it's a fun group to be part of.

Being able to answer an adoptee's question and knowing I was able to help them out, even if it just a little question about markup or something gives me the warmest fuzziest feeling. n_n

If I'm able to say the second most rewarding thing about being on the staff... Cake and ice cream is somewhere up there, definitely. =P

i can't believe that none of you said "All of THIS and THAT you can eat".

OK, I think the most rewarding part for me is just being part of the great team that runs ACC. it's not everyday that you get to work with a bunch of people so dedicated to do something like this, and all in their own time, all completely voluntarily. it really makes it worthwhile.

Rewarding?

Seeing a person smile because I helped them. Making me feel at home on this vast plain we call ACC.

And wifing with some of the world's craziest people.

Knowing that you are making even the littlest differences in someone's life by helping them on ACC. I like just helping in general, like others have said. I like those warm-fuzzy feelings.

Gee, I dunno, I'm just a Researcher.

Hah, just kidding...when I was a Scout, I LOVED seeing my adoptees become Staff members. It was great seeing people I'd met right when they first joined really integrating themselves into the community after my help.

*pretending there's a researcher option in the question*

The most rewarding part of being a researcher is seeing something added to the site that wouldn't have happened without you. As a researcher, you spend a lot of time working on ideas you know won't happen for years at best. It can get very demoralizing at times. It's so exciting when something you worked on a lot actually becomes a part of ACC. That's especially true for if you write a guide.
