Did I miss something? Where are the mods?

I know they are still lingering, and I see posts now and again, but where'd they all go?

I used to see blue and green names everywhere, but it seems they've all drastically lowered their posting or something. Did something happen that I'm not aware of besides ownership changes, or was this what may have caused it?

I think a whole bunch resigned.

I get the impression that flickoflash is (unofficially) the head mod (even though he almost never posts).

As for whats left...well, this place needs more, because the sheer amount douchebaggery, spam and utter .... that is unbecoming of ss.org is unreal, and way too much for what is left to handle.

Things have certainly become less communal, and not seeing the familiar posts of the top 5-7 mods has not been welcoming. They were always very helpful and offered TONS of great information/insight. :sigh:

I just noticed flickoflash isn't even listed in the list of mods.

To be fair, the spam isn't as bad as it was a while back. I am still reporting posts regularly, though. We're still doing a hell of a lot better than eightstring.org at least.

What happened to Chris(adminishredder). Did he devote all his time to MG.com?

Why aren't more mods appointed?

We're still here, but several of us - myself and Noodles included - are busier at work now, so we have less to post. We're trying to keep up with the spam, but content-wise, I personally haven't been able to contribute as much.

The VIPs (and several of the other regulars) have been doing a great job reporting spam, and I'd personally like to thank them. There are some new mods on the way...

My posting has been intermittent on everything lately, thanks to being very busy. I've deleted tons of spam though, and not even posted, let me tell you.

Rumor has it some new fish are going to enter the pond soon.

I also want to apologize for not being around much - I've had kind of a lot going on lately, both at work (remember, I work in the financial industry, calculating rates of returns for institutional investments and contrasting them with broad market indexes to provide a way to determine where and how a manager is adding value; we're in the middle of the biggest market crash since the 30's, so things have been a little hectic) and outside. I'm spending less time online these days because of this, so my posting has dropped WAY off.

I've also, shock and awe, been recording.

Anyway, I doubt I'll be around as much as I used to, but I'm definitely not going anywhere.

Sure you've been "recording".
