Have just heard that this was a result of FMF talking to another mod and them going direct to Editor Bob.

Absolutely ridiculous. EB has consistently refused to engage in discussion with the moderator group as a whole, or with myself, 22Y, Roegner, 3Wishes and Lib (who yes, is still there although largely inactive), but happy to act, and precipitately, on the asking of MusicChick and one other forum member.
I'm sorry to hear that there's been issues again with the modding group. Without a reliable modding system that can provide impartial, wise and justified decisions, the whole spirit of this forum could be damaged.

Congratulations to the new mods. I, for one, will stand behind you if you do your job well. However, if there's a pattern of biased modding, be ready to feel the heat. I care too much for this forum to see it become a playground of narcissistic fools.

Re: Mod shakeup

We should actually have 7 mods, one of whom is a super mod, with the super mod position being rotated each year.

From the 7, there must be at least one from Ticino, one from Romandie and one from Deutschschweiz (sorry GraubŁnden friends, you don't get your own guaranteed seat )

Re: Mod shakeup

This process for making changes is broken, and IMO it has an impact on the whole atmosphere at EF.

Editor Bob or the group of existing mods need to provide a proper explanation, otherwise my impression is that the whole mod process is hard to trust and following on from that our trust in the mods reduces.

I've never been nor will I be as long as MusicChick is a mod. I honestly don't think I could work with her in a team environment.

Would you like me to link the post & comment? Clearly an absurd decision.

I am actually in favour of infractions as it's clear to prove when a moderator is bullying.
Always playing the victim, eh? How about looking in the mirror and realising that you are one of the worst and most inflammatory characters on this forum?

How you can EVER use the word "bullying" with all of the horrific things you have written over the years I will never know. it is truly an impressive level of delusional narcissism that you suffer from.

That you could ever be elevated to mod is simply a disgrace and yet another dark stain on this already troubled forum.

Roegner has lost most of her Admin Control Panel powers, exactly the same as happened before christmas, and I would be surprised if it wasn't also true for the others. At that point, MusicChick refused to engage with any of the rest of the team, so we were never able to confirm whether she still retained all her powers or not.

Nah, it's just the title vBulletin (and Discourse) use for moderators. Nothing special about it.

Did FMF just become a super mod?

Edit: Also, why is LiB a super mod when he rarely posts anymore? It's been over 6 months since he's been here.
mirfield hasn't posted since Feb. 2020. Mods need breaks! And it's not a paid job.
When Lib is present he is very active.

You think FMF behaves well? I thought it was only his stocks.
Money makes the world go round We'll all be rich soon (not talking the imaginary 120K/year).

As information is not a big thing amongst EF-management: Does fmf even know he's a mod now?

Unfortunately, there is no such group in any position to tell you, or indeed to work out ourselves, what exactly has happened and why.

Dear fatmanfilms,

You have received an infraction at English Forum Switzerland.

Reason: Personal attacks

You just can't resist having a dig at her, can you? It's getting really old, please just stop.

This infraction is worth 1 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.

For other's info, this is part of long-standing feud between FMF and another member where he consistently attempts to wind her up with accusations based on something completely unrelated to current topics. This is why he was given an infraction.
