I expect that when the dust has settled that the rights of these other mods will be reinstated.
I certainly hope not! 22 Yards and Ace1 have consistently been showing bias, prejudice and frankly, poor moderation. I see no reason to restore them as mods. Just scroll back and read the frankly abusive and inflammatory comments of 22 Yards even now.

I agree.

I meant the other mods who have apparently been demoted but are still mods, and have responded to this demotion with moderation, reason and the will to go forward. 3wishes, Castro etc.

Re: Mod shakeup

I think everyone can agree that a lot of the emotion involved in this thread is more about the way that things have been done rather than what has actually been done.

Of course Editor Bob and the local are free to have whoever mod the forum that they want. But to treat moderators that have been happily doing this 'job' for sometimes over a decade like this is a pretty terrible thing to do. 3Wishes, Castro, and Roegner are better people than I am. I would have most definitely been offski if I was suddenly made an under-mod like they seem to have been.

Apparently people's livelyhood and retirement pensions are at stake Group A and Group B must be busy resupplying their frontlines and polishing EB's balls.

Group C is busy stocking up on popcorn for the nonstop drama that this forum provides. Time to stock up on toilet paper

Spot on. Blatant mobbing in action. But Castro and 3W and roegner are very good. Bring them back please!

So if I complain to EB that one mod is trolling, winding-up and upsetting long-standing members and so on, I can as 'one guy' get her removed?

That's how it works, doesn't it? You've just written that.
I have no idea how it works, but one is left with this impression given how things have transpired.

Thanks for a somewhat detailed and frank reply and putting to bed some of the wild and uncontrolled speculation that has been doing the rounds.

I wasn't aware there is a hierarchy of mod powers and that there are lesser and greater mods and TBH it doesn't really make sense to me. But then what do I know?

I do feel that some of the mods who were penalized did to a certain degree bring it upon themselves. But I agree that it is wrong to also penalize other mods who were AFAIK not involved in those actions. I expect that when the dust has settled that the rights of these other mods will be reinstated.
There are varying degrees of tools that mods can access. In "normal" times, all mods have access to the same tools. In these unusual times, some mods have been allowed to keep access to all the tools and others not.

Well, even more exciting is that Chuff was developing some sort of pamphlet with calls for a revolution. He's probably busy now protesting on the streets, gathering support and comrades around his cause and whatever he's doing, his absence seems to have a great impact on EF

That's the way you like it. Behind the scenes, not out in the open. You know, like the old times.

For the record, I have never voted against you in any vote.

The question I'd like you to answer is, why do you still on being a mod if there is so much hostility to your behaviour on this forum?
What's in it personally for you?

Why not step down? You can still actively participate in the forum as a normal member and may be get an infraction or two?

I am curious.
You were gone for two years because you had disagreements with two of the mods which is fair enough.
Those two are no longer active and now you’re back. That’s very convenient. Did you just randomly decide to log in after two years away on the off chance that they might no longer be around?
Not disagreements - that happens when you have (close to) equity of power - mobbing.

I'm back just on this thread and who knows if I'll stick around. I've lurked on the forum for those 2 years not really paying too much attention but "mod shakeup" did catch my eye on the weekend when i often have more time to dip in and out.

Having been to Ticino twice in the last few weeks - I have to say that the Ticinese are incredibly friendly and easy going.

The Zürichers there were just the same as they always are - rude, entitled and generally having absolutely no manners.

As per hostile behavior, not everyone comes to the EF to be hostile.
