Sticking with my aim of only having active & participating moderators I think it's time for another shift around ingame.
1. Anny - Still has a sub but doesn't play unless it's for a guild run or whatever. Was last online 22 days ago.
2. Mech - Has still been playing but didn't plan on renewing his sub when it expires, timezones & playtimes being an issue for him too. (Correct me if this is no longer the case)
3. Zeph - Guessing he has either been extremely busy or has left us but according to the roster he was last online 70 days ago which speaks for itself heh.
Andy hasn't been seen in 43 days either but I think I'm going to leave him as a mod for the time being seen as how I only made that change at the very end of Feb.
Soo when it comes down to it the only really active mod I can rely on atm is Ash, other than myself. Something I wanted to avoid.
We're not as active as we once were and may not need a full team of active mods all the time but I'd still prefer we didn't fall into the same trap as we have done in the past. I've been slack on this rotating recently which is nobody's fault but my own but I realised this more a couple of weeks ago and think now is probably a good time - When I was really busy one weekend and posted to ask for the assistance of another moderator with something, Ash was busy too that week but received no replies or offers from anyone else to login and quickly deal with it for me, which ideally should have been an easy thing to ask of another mod and was infact the only time I have ever specifically asked like that. In reality? Came down to me.
Another example was not long before that when I was trying my best to talk with 2 interested recruits at the same time as each other whilst trying to give equal attention to both without coming across as ignorant because there was no other mod around to help out.
Not many instances like that but I'd rather each and every one of the mods was active and could be replied upon rather than just 2 of us as to hopefully help avoid stuff like that in the future, be more of a team.
So yeah, my fault for not rotating sooner
Anyway the new proposed moderators to replace the above 3 would be: Eeks, NF & Syn'n (and Ash & myself who will remain). All of which still play on a regular basis and I see several times during the week.
Will make the changes this week if nobody is against
