I think the moving posts to the correct subforum, fixing broken quotes, removes duplicate posts is useful. Hard moderating is bloody annoying and imho not really necessary here. You don't notice the mods here - a good sign.

I really wouldn't get too overly bothered about who is an who isn't a moderator. Some things aren't worth getting upset about.
You don't notice the mods here? Funnily enough, you are not the only one who confirms this.

Good, then someone tell Editor Bob because he was manipulated to believe something else.

Looks like Mod Coup all over again. Once again, 22Yards and myself have been completely removed as mods, the others have had a lot of their superpowers removed. Not sure what triggered it, although there were some internal discussions a couple of days ago.

Now, of course, I can't see those discussions, so can't tell if they were followed up, but basically one moderator was attacking all the rest and accusing us of being politically motivated in our actions. I'm on hols at the moment so didn't comment, but it was very much a case of one against the whole of the rest of the team.
Ace1 - frankly I have no idea which his political convictions are, I always thought he's on the right side, not hard right but still.

22Yards criticised a bit more than he should have had this Trump guy, but then FMF and whoever else were never banned (or "warned") for that. They were both pretty decent mods, not perfect, but far better than the "non-involvement" of others (only when it suits) who allowed dupes, obvious trolls and so on and so further.

This is such a BS someone here orchestrated.

If Editor Bob exists and is not a software, he should know that.

Isn't that a good thing?

You have expressed your likes and dislikes plenty of times, what should we believe, that your actions and posts are motivated by your political convictions? Is that OK only when you're concerned? Oh well, I would never.

@Editor Bob,

Not everyone will go to The Local to complain as is really not that important for many of us here, but I think you should at least try to communicate what were your motivations to remove these mods because frankly, from where I stand, it doesn't make any sense.

If anything, they did the hard work here, others were just self-promoting.

Let's correct the dishonesty. Members reached out. Two mods got a warning a while back, through being demodded briefly. There was a clear note from the higher authority telling them to quit modding with a political bias. The warning was ignored, members silenced - so the higher authority decided to step in again.

How do you know I am not orange? I could make a couple of weird combovers from my hair, hmmm.

Senile bathroom furnishings? My bathroom has a lot to desire. I have missed your reference.
No worries. I see you as the Melania of the EF Republican Party, a party leader who often makes no sense and divides instead of unites. Even your avatar is appropriately orange. If you and your cronies managed to remove Ace and 22Yards and replace them with one of your own, I’d say the Trump philosophy of manipulation is alive and well.
Congratulations

Dang. It really is like the Republican Party under Trump. Other mods have been warned as well for exactly the same reasons and yet remain mods. Be very careful of the boomerang effect, MC.

I barely notice it either - for anything other than moving threads, or it an entire thread is deleted.

Obviously some people - possibly those who whine about moderation - notice them a lot. I'm reminded of the old saying - if you smell sh*t everywhere you go, maybe you should check your shoes.

Well, some of those who whine about moderation become mods. Have you noticed? No? lol


But yeah, I agree, you don't notice them mods with one exception. Not necessarily a good thing here, I don't think this is the type of forum which can run without (any) moderation. For obvious reasons.

I think the two de-moded did a good job and yet they were de-moded because of the constant moaning of some who "reached out" to the higher authority. Did they smell their shoes? No? Why?

Strange you never noticed their modding activities. Yet in the same post claim their actions were right.

It's one way or the other.

I noticed them and think were justified because the same people kept complaining about moderation here.

So there. There's no contradiction here, like it or not.

Re: Mod shakeup

I guess we'll see how much modding was done, un-thanked, behind the scenes when FMF realises it's all up to him.

I thought the mods act like a team and discuss modding activities on some hidden mod forum?

It shouldn't be up to any single mod to do all the work behind the scenes.

If certain mods have had to take the flak for doing the dirty work for stuff they decided together, that is of course tough. But its up to the mods to work out how they share the work.

The problem is they weren't all Team players.

The mods who did the brunt of the work have either had their mod powers removed or reduced.
The remaining mod (apparently) didn't actually do much modding which, if my maths is correct, just leaves FMFs as a mod.

I may be quite new on here but this entire business goes straight over my head. It's political? But I thought Ace1 at least was centre to slightly right of centre?

I think your maths are not correct as there are presently seven mods.

With one new mod installed and two removed, this means there must previously have been eight. Unless there is something else I missed.

Seven should still be plenty even if one or two of them supposedly do less than the others.

My point was I would have never known about all of these if some people here didn't complain so much. Started threads etc.

If the same people who kept complaining were in the wrong and abused the netiquette i.e. harassing other users, as it proved it was the case, then yes, I think those mods were right.
