So certain mods have been discussing modding discussions publically outside of the EF?

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.
Ex-mods can discuss whatever they want to.
Or do you think they have to sign NDAs?

Re: Mod shakeup

It would be a positive step if EB would step in, explain his position and then close this thread. The shake up has created an even greater division and any mod who closes this will have to take the heat.

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.)
I have tried to ascertain when Baboon asked to be deleted, it happened very early in the thread & I understand there is a cooling off period.

Perhaps like with EE someone will be asked to post on their behalf.

Re: Mod shakeup

In my opinion we could all have saved ourselves a whole lot of wasted time and roundabout discussion if Editor Bob has just taken a few minutes to announce the upcoming changes to the mod team as has been done in the past.

The previous incarnations of EB haven’t always been very approachable or responsive but at least they had the decency to keep the mod team and the forum in general informed of changes.

The lack of transparency and input from EB is the biggest issue in my opinion.

Not an assumption, it has been discussed outside of EF.

The early closing of threads was something I complained about, it's not something I would want to do.

That is a very big and completely erroneous assumption you’re making there.

You just have to go back and read Ace1’s posts in this very thread to see that it has been mentioned here in EF.(both in this thread and in the past when MC’s actions have been questioned)

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?



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.
Typical Greenmount. Watch out as debating her or calling her out on her hypocrisy might get her to call you a creep and stalker

You may know EF has been around for a long time, there are more than two ex-mods and discussion about MC outside of EF is years old; since the Jagwaugh incident.

Ace1 has had their mod rights revoked for overstepping the line.

It was clear that Ace1 had a personal feud with MC.

So what do you expect Ace1 would say on the matter?

I usually ignore you, and I will continue to do so, but I think you did more than that. Yet, you weren't banned. Nor did I ask for that. Have a nice life.

Re: Mod shakeup

my two pence:

why do the owners / managers of EF have to answer to anyone, they don't owe anyone any answers. surely, its their forum and they can do what they want with it? we are free to come and free to go. its not like its a paid membership.

It was clear? When did that become apparent? After she tried to get EB to revoke his mod rights without discussing anything in the team first?

I only noticed he was very courteous with her and even when they disagreed on something, he did it politely.

Seeing you also seem to be privy to what was discussed in the team and what wasn't, you are clearly at an advantage here.

Huh? How can you read my post if I was on your ignore list?

I have never done anything ban worthy. In your ideal world anyone who has a different opinion to you should get banned?

Of course, but if people have been moderating the forum for many years, it would have been common courtesy for the manager(s) to thank them and explain why they felt they couldn't be part of the moderator team any more.

Obviously you see it differently.
