Temporary Resignation

Post by mel on Mon Sep 05, 2011 11:08 pm

I'm making a completely voluntary, self-directed and (hopefully) temporary resignation from my mod status for the time being. In short, I'm doing it because I would like to make sure that the community would still be comfortable with me having moderation powers after they've seen how I handle several controversial topics I'd like to cover in future posts.

I support mel in this decision, which they brought to me privately before announcing it here.

I do not anticipate problems from this, but we both felt it better in the long run that it be clearly stated: mel voluntarily is stepping down, for an indefinitely temporary term. They were not forced out of their position. Their views in subsequent posts are not necessarily representative of this forum, its administrative and moderation team, and/or its affiliates.

I've not had a chance to speak with you yet, but I'm still sorry to hear this news. I personally feel that one should not be judged too strongly on their moderating abilities based on their views on controversial subjects, though I can see where you are coming from here.

That being said, I would certainly feel comfortable, myself, having you moderate hear, so I do hope to see you return to the position at some point in the future. Razz

The presumption is that Mel will inevitably have modding abilities reinstated, but just right now Mel doesn't want their views to be affiliated inadvertently with the administration, in the event they provoke butthurt. :-/

I'm sympathetic, and I support Mel's wishes in that matter.
