January 2021 mod exodus
On January 25, 2021, 5 mods all left at about the same time.
Mods who left[edit | edit source]
Reasons are according to Weezor.
|Mod||Status||Reason for leaving|
|CommieDog||On an indefinite break (left with Govern and Vithra on the 25th), unlikely to ever return
Was in the server on an alt named "Syzygy", coming online once every couple of months before leaving entirely
|Unclear; contributing factors may have been stress over finals and the epilepsy incident|
|Chupa||Returned January 31
Proceeded to leave again on February 8
Returned February 18
Resigned February 20
Leaves and rejoins for a few minutes to check on the server every month, last joined then leaved June 6, 2021
Banned after a mod vote on July 22, despite not being in the server, for creating drama and being egotistical
|Had "a long and retarded argument" between each other in mod chat|
|Jafi||Returned February 22
Resigned March 4
Rejoined May 22 for the anniversary and left again May 31
Rejoined August 20, currently advisor
|Govern||Resigned and left with Vithra January 25||Felt that the server was bad for them mentally and that they didn't fit in|
|Vithra||Resigned and left January 25|
Aftermath[edit | edit source]
Cereal, Nicoglasses, and Thumper were all temporarily promoted to mod to fix the resulting staff shortage. Cereal and Nicoglasses became permanent mods on January 31. Thumper later became a permanent mod on April 26.
As it is pretty "sus" for 5 mods to all leave simultaneously, this caused some drama and speculation "among" the community.
