I've always wondered if it's possible for someone to make a living on Bitcointalk alone. Obviously, people like dooglus and Stunna can but they don't count since they have their own sites. For example, someone could make money by posting in a sig campaign, marketing and managing services, selling/trading on the marketplace, etc. And if this is possible, then are there any people who do actually earn a living this way?

If they get $20 per week from sig campaigns, $20 per week from services, and $20 per week from selling/trading on the marketplace, that would be $60 per week. That might be enough to meet the needs of someone who lives in a poorer country such as Moldova, Bangladesh, Haiti, or most African countries. Although they would need to have Internet access and I'm not sure if that is cheaper than in Western countries.

Not sure if this is the right section for this.

Remember the mods. I think they can afford to make living.

I'm sure there are some people that do. Some of the big currency traders like shdvb will likely make a good living. A very active Patroller mod can earn about $500 a month whereas very active Globals can earn nearly $2000. You could have probably lived off PrimeDice's campaign in some countries when they were offering 2.4btc max I guess. You would probably need a lot of accounts to earn a living wage from other campaigns now though. Occasionally people advertise for jobs on here like stunna did recently https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=968402.0 and I'm sure there's some people that get paid to be a representative of certain companies and look after their threads etc.

Not sure if this is the right section for this.

Probably more suited to off-topic to be honest.

I would assume it all comes down to where you live. $2,000 per month in some countries is probably a decent amount of money, but in the USA not so much. I would think if anything people use this as supplemental income.

While $60 might be sufficient for somebody to live in some parts of the world, he might not have the skillset to make a living on Bitcointalk. At the least, you need somebody with knowledge of english, basic computer literacy and an internet connection. Somebody who knows these could probably make a lot more by working.

If someone own gambling site , that person can life with bitcoin only (exclude his/her main job)

For me , joining signature campaign only help me to eat at canteen , recharge my phone bill and internet package.
If I've more, I can buy a smartphone

But those things still not enough to cover it , so I need a main job to cover my daily expense.

Are you earning just with sig campaign [I know last month you earned 0.8 btc appr] or do you offer any thing else here? except loan because you are not getting any interest.

1) Signature campaign.
2) Tips when repaying loans.
3) Defaulted loans(selling collateral).

I forgot about paid trolls, though they're kind of a conspiracy theory around here. I haven't seen any concrete evidence of them being paid but I don't doubt it hasn't gone on before. I don't imagine they get paid much though and most trolls are just doing what trolls do and trolling for free or for other business interests they have.
