I know, I know...
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance or better. It's my own take on Hanlon's Razor.
The reasons for our decisions taking so long are numerous, but none of them come down to maliciousness. All of our moderators are currently employed in other fields, in college (though summer is here now, so this should not be a problem for a while), or have other real life concerns that take precedence over ponychan. Decision-making takes time, and the more major decisions we have to focus on, the less time we can spend on each of them. That coupled with the frequent absence of moderators (due to real life complications) results in very little time per day being spent on these decisions. We do have mod meetings to try and hammer things out in one sitting, but real life complications get in the way of those, too, despite our attempts to build our schedules around them. Finally, there's the matter of ignorance... to be frank, from my perspective the moderators who choose to field questions and criticisms during major boards changes are often the ones who were not present during the decision-making process, weren't paying attention to what was going on, or just plain weren't mentally stable during the heat of the moment. Thankfully that should not be a problem in the future. Ideally we'd all be completely versed in everything that's said, but at the very least there shouldn't be anymore cowboy cop moments.
In any case, can you guys take this to the moderator conduct thread? We're all derailing pretty hard here.
The announcement will be sometime during the next week, as !!Celestia said. If needed, we will make a sticky saying as much to show that we have not forgotten and are not trying to distract from it or anything like that.
Way to be concise, Dragon...
