I cannot explain everything you want to know, but I can tell you what I know is the procedure.
hmm, this is cryptic. Are you telling me you know more than some of us on the forum?
I will not start the poll, I shall leave that to a mod, even then you will still moan.
Of course, because A has appointed a moderator for D+D. I maintain my disappointment in that process as do alot of people. Those people had genuine questions that will not be solved by a move of appeasement that sees a second totally unnecessary D+D mod.
Look what katy expresses here,
"Those who class themselves as D&D regulars, are obviously not happy at the choice of corey. So, in response to this, i am inviting you to go back to your D&D land and come up with your prefered choice."
That doesnt say that a second mod is REQUIRED. It says to me that "D+D isnt happy so tell us who you want and I'll make them a mod so you can stop moaning". If there is going to be a change it is because Corey is unsuitable, in which case their was an error made and he should be demodded. That isnt supported by A.
Incidentally, it is abit late for katy to be taking the opinions of D+D into consideration. We asked for this before the selection and that didnt happen. If it didnt happen for a justifiable reason and Corey is the best man for the job, then the appointment stays and we must continue with forum life, unanswered questions and all. For reasons that have still not been addressed she cut out the person that D+D wanted in the last selection process and then admits it was clear to her all along, "There didnt seem any point in putting the new list into the poll as it appeared that everyone who thought this list was one of D&D regulars wanted vienna as a mod"
so my trust for her is quite logically scraping the barrel.
Ill direct you towards your original comments in this respect,
"I empathise with you, I too did not want Corey as a mod, but since it has been done now, I feel nothing really can be done. If Corey turns out not to be of mod quality or nature, then he will be removed, but otherwise, we should give him a chance."
As much as people wish to polarise this as some retribution on my part, my response to you then stresses the consistency of my concern,
"My complaint is with the way it has been handled."
I appreciate your efforts to find some resolution and youve been very good natured about it all, but this is undermining the real criticisms that most members of D+D had of the process, by following and legitimising katy's own personal quick fix to a problem of her own making. This is not in the interests of D+D but to escape any criticism that we had, at the expense of Corey, myself, Howard and the rest of the forum(having a second mod in D+D sets a nasty precedent for other sub forums).
I would invite D+D regulars to support Corey as moderator as he has the backing of A. I would also invite them to not give any legitimacy to the selection of a second moderator.
