I have an idea who you mean, but I won't name names just in case I'm wrong.
Anyway, up until this point I knew Astra was
still a mod for some reason, I just didn't know of where and why. So when he posted on here recently, I just asked him.
And when he said he was still an /rp/ mod, I more or less questioned why, given we have Dom as a mod too. He never answered me on that, funnily enough.
Then Mikie spoke up and I asked the same question, and pointed out that Astra flat out isn't around
enough to properly act as a mod. He agreed and decided Astra needed to go.
Had I known that someone else was giving him shit for it behind the scenes I probably wouldn't have said anything.>>12445
Though in the interest of being clear, I've also had my bad personal history with Astra before now.
I won't go into explicit details, but either way, if he really isn't doing anything for the site anymore, it makes no logical sense for him to have a mod position. Especially since the board he's supposedly monitoring is already handled by another user who is more active than him.>>12453>>12454
It has more to do with what Ember said, yeah.
For a guy who supposedly cared a lot about the site, he rarely made any public decisions himself, or spoke about issues himself. He'd usually hand it off to Fen to handle, or that was how it seemed. It quickly gave the impression that he was just sitting around doing nothing while Fen handled all the busy work.
And if this was untrue in any sense, again, it didn't look
that way. And that's no one's fault but his for not having enough of a public presence.
