Unasked opinion about integrity
« on: February 14, 2022, 12:24:41 am »
While admitting I'm not really understand the reason of decision to change sub-forum moderator I am as an actual community member still feeling obligated to proclaim my protest.

I can understand and even support the idea to free developer from tasks like forum moderation and community management but still consider formal moderation rights removal as a fracture of community self-respect that should not be allowed as an ill practice. As far I can see Dioxine had the sub-forum moderator rights from the beginning so I consider maintaining the status quo in a case of hostile force emersion as a matter of community honor.

With full of reasonable respect to the decision of the senior leadership of the community I still decided to share my considerations to avoid being silently agreed.

I thank everybody for attention.

I made this account just a couple days ago, though I've been lurking on the forums for quite a long time. I share your sentiments, for whatever that is worth. Frankly, I believe that removing Dioxine from moderator status tells the hostile force that if they put pressure and yell loud enough, they will get their way.

Given the situation is still unfolding in some capacity, it's quite the conflict of interests for someone to remain as a moderator whilst also be under moderation scrutiny.

Everyone hold tight for now; allow enough time for staff to separate the sensational stories from the accurate ones, then we'll get back to normalcy.

WTH is going on?
What evil forces? Why Dio has been released from subforum modder rights? How is it connected to Discord BS?
Is it Hobbes-related thing?
Is it copyright related thing?
Is it minority rights violence related thing?
Is it porn-related thing?

Who will give the answer and when will do so?

Hey Abyss,  I've sent you a direct message response to get you details.  Suffice it to say, XpirateZ is still alive and well, and the current status is the best approach at the moment.

Cheers!
