I came here because I wanted to know and see more about the team, this is now in my favorites incase I need to contact and Servers Moderators (I hang around in the server section). I +1'd this, it's very useful, thanks!
Can someone tell me why a Mod retires is it just because they cant take it anymore or do the Site mods decide who needs to go and who is unfit or is it done internally.
I can answer this, since I was going to post anyways.
A mod or admin who is unfit and "fired" wouldn't show up on this list. They show up as a normal "Member." Those who are "Retired" have done so by choice. And there are as many reasons why someone would retire as there are for anyone to stop doing anything. "Can't take it anymore" is a strange way to put it, when that can cover a very wide variety of very valid reasons for someone to retire. Myself, I'm retired because over the past year my IRL career has gotten a LOT more hectic, and it squeezed out my time here. I've been on less and less, and hadn't taken an admin or mod action in months. So it was for the best that I just step back.
I thought I'd post, nothing urgent, but when an admin sees this, please note that ez, Real, and myself weren't placed in the "Retired Staff" when we were removed from the active list.
