I was reading old threads and I think that compared to today, moderation was more lax back in 2010.  

Were there fewer mods in those days? I don't remember...

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Wasn't Sky(e)? one? And our beloved RN of course. My history on this forum doesn't go back that far to remember former mods.

Ron wasn't around at the time, Mith was also a mod back in the day. I don't think Zig was a mod yet.

FabFourEmily became less active and left.

Ron Nasty resigned.

Not sure about the rest, I think it was due to lack of activity.

Ellie got an upgrade.

Please add the others as you think of them.  

In the beginning (BZ), Joe was the only Mod. He enlisted skye when he knew he was going to be away for a while. They were the only two when I joined. Prior to a period of time during which both Joe and syke were going be away, he recruited mithvean and myself to mind the store. Life got in the way for the ladies leaving yours truly as the only Mod for a while. It was then that Ron Nasty and fabfouremily were asked to step in. For different reasons at different times, RN and Emmers stepped down and were eventually replaced with Ahhh Girl and meanmistermustard. 

Somewhere during that timeline, Von Bontee was asked to be a Mod but respectfully declined. There may have been others that were asked, but if there were, I am not aware. As for Ellie, she is an honorary Admin, also providing Joe with a backup account. 

That is how I recall it. If I am wrong about any of it, just chalk it up to a bad influence from years of reading Macca's revisionism. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

@Zig I think you nailed it there.

When the forum launched in 2008 I used to read every post, and traffic was low so it wasn't too onerous. Skye was an early enthusiast who posted a lot when I was trying to gain traction. She was the sort of member that all forums need: someone who isn't put off by an empty room and gets the party started. Since she was in AZ it made sense to have another mod who was online when I was off. In the end I think her interests changed, she got a new job and moved house, and the forum was a relic from her past life, but that's OK. People move on.
