mirfield hasn't posted since Feb. 2020. Mods need breaks! And it's not a paid job.
maybe we can revive mirfield from his cryogenic storage?

I tend to agree that if/when a Mod is removed, they should be privy to the discussion or at minimum be informed directly by Editor Bob.

From the numerous discussions around the topic of Mod removal, maybe I am mistaken, but I thought it was not possible for a single Mod (or even 2) to orchestrate/facilitate removal of other Mods.

Can anyone explain the process?
Never been done, as far as I'm aware. In the past (before I joined) mods may have been persuaded to leave, but I don't think it's ever been done without their awareness and acceptance.

Technically, any mod could remove any other from the Super Moderator group, which would demote them, but some other actions have gone on, removing other mods' abilities outside of that group membership, which isn't something that can be done without real Admin privileges, i.e. by EB.

MC has always refused to answer questions about her remaining in the mod team, which have been raised several times in mod discussions, and which she has certainly seen and ignored. The rest of the team have been powerless to remove her, as EB has also refused to engage any of us in discussion. Yes, one of us _could_ have done the deed, but we've always tried to keep things within the scope of our Moderator roles.

Re: Mod shakeup

How many of the super mods are actually active members? I personally find it odd that inactive mods have been kept on but active mods have been replaced.

Edit:
Ace1: are you saying MC could have had you and others removed?

I smell the involvement of another mod here. Otherwise, does anybody care to explain why I have been demoted in this latest "coup attempt"?
That would be the right moment for EB or the local to come forward and explain the situation. Sadly this never happened within less than a week before...

Mirf and Lib have both effectively agreed to stand down, but it hasn't been enacted. Caviarchips left the team quite a while back.

Not like this, not on her own. Yes, theoretically she could have removed us from the SuperModerator group, but some of the other actions could, I believe, only be done by EB.

Re: Mod shakeup

I suggest that Mods are elected by members annually, I suggest 01 April (guess why?).


In the month preceeding, candidates can propose themselves.


This is a more democratic approach and like this we can oust the fascist mods. Of course we need a process that rids a mod who goes postal.

Just make everyone who wants to be a mod, and wait for the fallout to settle.

C'mon, "Fascist" Mods? Feel free to make a constructive suggestion, but pls put aside the unnecessary rhetoric.

Ace1 and 22yds don't deserve the namecalling!

It looks like Tony is saying he has been approached about starting a forum, not joining one of the forums that predate his existence.
Cherry picking your quotes?

A group of former posters actually created a rival forum and had it up and running. Unfortunately, there just wasn't enough interest so it all led to a lonely road with little traffic and no real significance.

Read them in order, then you'll see you somehow have your goalposts in the changing rooms.

To follow up on this, I'm not sure if people are aware just how many members have been banned for having the "wrong opinions". Almost always by the same moderators. Furthermore, how many members have deleted their profile. I've even had people reach out to me about starting up a rival forum!!!

I think bringing some balance to the team was long overdue.
