Another one bites the dust...

Well... looks like the recent coupattackbollox has had the desired effect. Depending upon your viewpoint, obviously. Some of you are no doubt dancing around in your self-rightous pants and having quite the time.

Hopefully he carries now water, some chocolate and a blanket in the car because accidents in the highways still happen and the police will close it for hours

That's because they're already planning a takeover....watch your back, FMF!

In other news, since there's so much inclusiveness now, can Mr. Trump join EF? It seems he's been left out by the bad kids.

When a mod's data is deleted do their bans also disappear?

This change would not have been due to any recent account deletions. The last person to ban the user in question was EB.

I've just worked it out. I got a rep yesterday from N/A. I guess he was a cricketer.

Plenty of people rushed to self delete a year ago (including RufusB) when all the previous mods were in control, so this is just business as normal.

EastEnders recently deleted, perhaps I would not have had to post her leaving thread on her behalf, if the changes had occurred a couple of weeks earlier.

I wouldn't be surprised if people start leaving again because of the mod shake-up, especially if we start seeing the Trump strategy of leadership: undoing respectable actions implemented by previous mods.

Re: Another one bites the dust...

Does this mean we'll have to have a hidden reference list of who's who amongst the new user names?

I doubt we will see any Trump strategy of leadership, I believe the forum will be more friendly as a result of the changes. It's a free world, posters are free to come & go as they please.

Yes, I'll shortly be following my fellow ex-mod.
It's amazing what people will do to get out of paying a bet although I did send him my banking details a couple of months ago, time will tell.

21 August 2021 is the end date, if the £ is worth more than CHF 1.2412 I win, if below I lose.

Yes, I'll shortly be following my fellow ex-mod. A very sad day. I urge any of you who feel that this has gone too far to consider doing the same. Do bear in mind that in many cases some traces of your posting history or identity may remain, so a carefully-worded request for "complete" deletion, not leaving any posts from you under the name "guest", and ensuring that threads that you started do not show up still showing your name as the starter, would be required.

This isn't "business as normal", this is the death of a forum.
LOL.

Drama much?

On another note, my Groan count went down for some reason.

Do you honestly believe that after some moderators leave, this will be the end of the forum? As in, the hundreds of members that sign up each year and stick around will care if Ace1 or FMF or Castro or MC is in moderation? If so, I can only imagine what sort of a power-rush was for you being in moderation..

And to be clear here, I never had a single complaint against you as a moderator.

Death of a forum! Get over yourself!!

It‘s time all this naval gazing and public bloodletting ended. Most EF don‘t give a fig - or even know who the proponents in these childish shenanigans are…

Hey, this is a bit sad.

Users like me are the forum. A flock of sheep is composed by sheep. The shepherd is just a shepherd, not the flock.
