The infraction you gave me last week. I did contact you & another moderator before escalating an ongoing complaint.
I guess this illustrates why a system with infractions is not really successful. Instead of acknowledging that they went too far (which they often do) and maybe take it down a few notches, they go and cry to the manager, who promptly sides with the person who screams the loudest and gives them what they want plus a bit more.

Exactly. The mods take up additional challenge of managing this forum without any compensation. In reward,... difficult. Members a... tough job ... unproductive, toxic work.
Yeh , not very clever of them but let them carry on ... at the end EF is department in Ministry of Funny Walking !

It's a bit disappointing though that "the forum that I moderate" also took 10 pages.

Re: Mod shakeup

ok - so my Friday is ruined on EF - in 20min and fast-forward button I learnt

- EF is social platform ( and I avoid all the social internet gizmo )
- infractions makes FMF headaches.
- FMF lives outside of Switzerland and only way he can stay on forum is when we vote to accept Malta as 27th canton - notice s2lemans be against as always!.
- there is Ignore button but I have not discovered it yet -and would really find use of it so need to find it
- Forum members are craving for power
- there is Editor Bob - like a Matrix crater that pulls the strings

....

Can I have my account deleted now please !

what about credit based moderation - accumulated as capital and can be spent but with it capital is spent - and every day there is lucky capital(ist) who won a lotto so can use his capital for next 72h...

Re: Mod shakeup

In fairness, we don't really know how things transpired in this particular case. And if the pattern remains the same wrt EB, we will never know. Pity...

Mirf and Lib have both effectively agreed to stand down, but it hasn't been enacted. Caviarchips left the team quite a while back.



Not like this, not on her own. Yes, theoretically she could have removed us from the SuperModerator group, but some of the other actions could, I believe, only be done by EB.
No, I never agreed to step down. I was considering leaving the EF and then decided to stick around.

Maybe you do not know that "start-up" and "sign-up" have different meanings?
"start-up" means;- start something new.
"sign-up" means;- join something existing.
"sign-up" does not mean "start something new".

Now with this explanation in your mind do read your post again.

Welcome back, Lib. I see you’ve been informed about the newest round of mod turnover. Is that the reason you’ve decided to check back in again?
