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

Good to hear that you were 100% satisfied with all modding here.

Because honestly, I thought you were among the ones to complain vociferously about certain modding activities.

But maybe your complaints were entirely justified and the complaints of others entirely justified?

So there. There's no contradiction here, like it or not.
Maybe if you could come around to see there is a contradiction you might actually see there are two sides to the disagreement.

Like it or not.

It's about personal vendettas IMHO. It's time to calm down and move on.
Unfortunately, MC and her cronies won this round of vendettas through manipulation and back stabbing. Done like a true Trump politician.

Edit: MC opened the door to this mess by “exposing” the “truth” behind the de-modding. Unfortunately, she forgot to mention how she refuses to work with other mods.

Nope, never said that. Don't do the "moving the goal post". Again. Repeatedly.

Glad that you choose to ignore what I actually wrote and what I actually think.

I think you can have this monologue without me.

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 think if I were one of the remaining mods who have just seen drastic changes to the mod team without any communication from EB I would cease to do any moderation at all.

If EB doesn’t have the decency to at least inform them of any changes he’s making he doesn’t deserve for them to do the dirty work for him in my opinion.
Why would anyone want to spend their free time doing unpaid work for somebody who doesn’t even respect them enough to inform them of decisions he’s taken?

In that case it would be up to Editor Bob, MC & myself to chose the replacements.

Might be the final one as (imo) there's no coming out of this. First time - one could have thought EB is confused, had a hangover whatever. Second time - no, this is where things stand here.

But of course, everyone is free to leave this forum, reduce their presence etc etc Or keep going as before, who cares.

Seeing you're not a mod yourself, isn't this a big assumption to make?

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.

#fakenews

You have been around here long enough to know not to close your eyes to the fact that (as was already posted in this thread) several of the mods listed have long ago pulled back and had practically no contact with EF for some time.

Checking the statistics from mods named in your link, one mod has not posted this year and another has posted only twice.

It will be interesting to see if any of those mods post more after the changes.

It will be interesting to see if any people will leave this forum because of the changes.

(Baboon has already left but unfortunately gave no public reason why.)

And 7 minus 3 is one?

Interesting how it takes 17 pages until a key fact slips out so nonchalantly.

That doesn't sound at all professional to me.

If this is true, a shakeup was well overdue and the position of the individuals in question becomes indefensible.

It has been mentioned in this very thread on more than one occasion by the ‘de-mobbed’ as well as multiple times elsewhere.
(Can’t be bothered to search for the posts, I’ll leave you to do that if you’re interested)

It has been a common theme for some time.
