It's a warning for all forum legends. We may all end up like FMF if we don't behave well.

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.

You think FMF behaves well? I thought it was only his stocks.

Looks like Mod Coup all over again. Once again, 22Yards and myself have been completely removed as mods, the others have had a lot of their superpowers removed. Not sure what triggered it, although there were some internal discussions a couple of days ago.

Now, of course, I can't see those discussions, so can't tell if they were followed up, but basically one moderator was attacking all the rest and accusing us of being politically motivated in our actions. I'm on hols at the moment so didn't comment, but it was very much a case of one against the whole of the rest of the team.

The infraction you gave me last week. I did contact you & another moderator before escalating an ongoing complaint.

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.

Thanks for updating us ace. Probably best for your sanity to be out of it now- happy Friday-Enjoy the sun!

FMF as a mod? Surely that is some kind of sick joke.

WTF... Editor Bob has clearly lost the plot. What other mod would be so lacking in moral fibre and character to do something like that?

I suggest all EF'ers message him to ask wtf is going on

The infraction for you, despite being asked not to do so multiple times, attacking another forum member? The infraction which was issued instead of a ban, as might have happened in the past? The infraction that nobody else can see, only you and the mod team?

A forum with FMF as a mod is one I will not be part of.
I will be part of it as I would not let something like that stop me from using it, but I fully expect that he would ban me within a reasonable timeframe as there is no way I can keep my mouth shut at having such a risible character on the mod team. It's already bad enough having MC polluting the forum with her noinsense.

I think EF may have just plumbed new depths.

That's just crazy. You should work with your moderation team, not ignore them and make arbitrary decisions out of the blue. :msncrazy:

Incorrect, I went directly to Editor Bob.

I tried to engage with you & another mod (whose initial reaction was to laugh) as I wanted the mods to take some responsibility for their own actions themselves.

Just say congrats folks and HTFU :wave:

Re: Mod shakeup
 
Wow ... just wow, and this one long term mod that went to Editor Bob isn't politically motivated and often the most polarizing force on this forum?

Ace1, I've always appreciated how you have zero patience for trolls and did your best to make this forum a nice place...definitely writing to EB to give my two cents.

Can I be a mod now too? :msnshock:

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.
