Maybe, but knocking someone when they are down after years of service does strike me as a bit off - especially in a cowardly way on an online forum but whatever, it takes all sorts.

And if it's impartial moderators that people want then at least one more needs to step down.
Agreed.

Re: Another one bites the dust...

I've taken the difficult decision to step down from EF moderating duties.

Leaving now..



It was easy in the end, as apparently, I've never been asked to moderate in the first place.

Good to see that you are not still butthurt.

As far as I can tell, a bet's a bet. Nothing to do with this latest stuff.

Stop threatening to flounce. Scram chump.
What happened to "lead by example"? Name calling? Really?

Re: Another one bites the dust...

Would somebody removing themselves also make messages they sent disappear by any chance? Since the notification email tells me what the message says, I had quite a few unread ones, but about five less than before without having read them.

Yes. When an account is deleted, all private messages from that person disappear (on EF of course), whether you have read them or not. If the notification email quotes the message then you still have it.

Thanks.
In other news, I see that FMF now identifies as Head Mod? At least that's how it comes across...

I think that "Super Moderator" is the standard title that he just hasn't changed yet.

Re: Another one bites the dust...

Only through your lens... Most Mods seem to choose some sort of moniker/play on words/tagline.

Why are you creating drama where it doesn't exist? He has been a Mod for a couple of days. Lots of stuff has happened to EF over these last days and I doubt it has been orchestrated by Dr. Evil/FMF.

PS - If k_e_ is correct, it just makes it even clearer...

That is correct. Super Moderator is a default title once a user is promoted to the role.

I think a combination of things. Rightly or wrongly, you're being made out as responsible for the entire shakeup since EB hasn't made any kind of public statement.

All other mods have "custom" titles so you're the only one with the default. For people who didn't notice the default before, they think it must be your own choice.

FMF: While you're thinking of a mod tagline, maybe we can supply you with some ideas. Here are mine:

The Money Mod
The Alternative Mod
The Mod-Slinger
The Loaded Mod
The filthy rich mod
The Penny-Wise Mod
The Mod with the Bod

For exactly this reason I chose to keep my old tittle so people aren't too surprised when they find out that I am a mod as well
