Sad news DamienD

I've always found you very friendly and helpful, but I understand it can't be an easy job.

Thank you for you hard work and dedication to EAB

Welcome back to the horde

It's a thankless task at the best of times, I don't think people quite realise the effort that goes into this sort of role (speaking as someone who is Admin/Mod in a few places).

Thanks for your efforts sir, and glad you're sticking around

Aw I'll miss the one stern voice of reason when everyone else is crying bloody murder over wrong assumptions and misinformation.

He's not fired. RCK has forgotten how to unmod him lol. It's that anti banning script Damien added for himself a couple of years ago lol

Those of you who have been around a while will know I am not exactly best mates with most of the moderators on here (or any other forum for that matter, lol).

Having said that, I have always had respect for you, DamienD. You have done a fantastic job and we all appreciate your hard work. I'll miss having you as a moderator as I often agreed with your point of view. Thanks for everything you've done for EAB!

I don't really need to bother explaining the situation but... these things take time to finalise, and I have some concerns that I'm addressing with EAB's admin i.e. RCK...

As mentioned in another thread:

As basically the only moderator that is active here and as any other moderator the "face" of the board, I think it is only fair to explain everything to the board users.
And if things take time, which I am sure they do, why jump the gun and announce this then remain being a moderator? Just mention it when it's done.

I don't like limbo

Oh right, I already give up 10 - 16 hours a day, and have done over many years moderating EAB voluntarily but now I also need to keep updating everyone on a personal decision and discussions with RCK?

I didn't jump the gun, I put my resignation into RCK on the same day prior to the thread being created.

I wanted a quick resolution i.e. back to a normal member as soon as possible, but as already mentioned, these things take time and I have some unforeseen concerns that I'm working with RCK on.

Seriously now, what does it matter to you if I stop being a moderator, remain in some form or leave completely?

Currently I'm still doing most of my daily / self opposed duties to keep EAB afloat, but most people wouldn't notice as it's behind the scenes... i.e:
  • Reading all threads / posts.
  • Checking / verifying new user accounts.
  • Deleting spam threads / posts and banning spam accounts.
  • Moving, renaming and editing threads / posts.
  • Dealing with disputes / queries.
  • Answering numerous posts and PMs that I receive daily, just look at the numbers below:

Anyway, if it takes a few more weeks to finalise, so what?

I guess in your eyes I should have stopped visiting EAB completely since making the announcement, but where does that leave the forum?

If you are not a moderator anymore, you should not perform any moderator duties.

That has nothing to do with visiting the board. Just be a normal user. You obviously took my message the wrong way. You are clearly burned out. So stop doing it. We want you back to normal. Let the other moderators deal with anything. If they don't, it's their problem, not yours.

As it is you are still a mod, as you explained. So this thread is nonsense.
