Ahh ha! So that's why the coronavirus thread has suddenly become more bearable and people are able to have rational, intelligent and productive conversations in there again, without constantly arguing in circles about masks.

If all mods have parallel rights, if you have a duck and a set of scales we can soon find out the truth.

If EB is out then let's see this ballsy mod stand up for their action and explain it. It would never have happened like this in the old days, I am sure. I wonder if the rogue ban-hammer mod tried banning a mod before demoting that person
Maybe what this tells the mods is that bannings of regular and established members should go through a democratic voting process (on the mod level) rather than just being decided by 1 or 2 mods. Otherwise, some may not accept such decisions.

My eyes do that. I don't see the point of actually putting someone on an ignore list, it's not hard to gloss over things that have little meaning. And that's not highlighting anyone in particular
A persons eyes definitely 'do not do the same thing' as an ignore list.

Re: Mod coup

The whole mod system needs a complete overhaul and has done for some time.

No one mod should have supreme power and be able to override decisions and block other mods from discussions. That’s not how a democratic system works and is totally despicable behaviour.

As annoying as those two posters are, not for what they say as much as how they say it, I did think a permaban was over the top. Regardless of that there are far better ways for a mod to raise an objection than what has apparently taken place.

A decision that was taken after consultation to ban certain members has been reversed.

22 yards, who proposed the ban, and myself, who supported it, have been removed from the moderator group. Not only that, but our ability to send private messages has been artificially revoked, so we can't even message the other mods.

Another mod who is still a mod has contacted me to say she's been locked out of certain mod action.
This is worrisome.

You and 22Yards have done a great job keeping the forum on an even keel, and I am grateful for all your hard work.

I hope Editor Bob reverses whatever he (or whoever) has done, and then comes on here to explain himself.

Who said EF was democratic?

Maybe we should make it like the EU and every mod has a veto power over each decision

There are three possible culprits.
1. Another mod.
2. Editor Bob.
3. A hacker.
I'm trying very hard not to laugh.

Re: Mod coup

The bulls*** in this place has become ridiculously thick in the past six months or so, in my opinion.

There are clearly some people who dislike one another here, and perhaps that is "par for the course" in a reactive environment such as the EF, but be mature about it and as a mod, be objective and don't let your personal feelings for or against someone dictate your behavior as a moderator. One of the priorities here, as a mod, should be trying to keep the peace and making this forum more bearable for the majority of its members.

I think some people invest their egos or sense of "reputation" far too much in the place -- to an extent that it can generate rather bizarre behavior.

At first I thought calling whatever is happening a coup might be a bit far, but this is sounding more and more like a coup with a power vacuum.

You're too nice...

When you become a mod, you'll need one of those jolly little phrases next to your user name so we all know you are a mod.

Something like:

St2lemans
immodest


You'd make a lovely team along with Musak-Suppenhuhn.
