Changes to the Team - Mods stepping down

Post by OrangeRakoon » Thu Aug 13, 2015 6:26 pm

It is with some sadness that we must announce some changes to the moderating team here on SONM, as four of our finest choose to hand in their modbadges and step down from active duty. ChainedTeapot, LFF, LightSamus and Wrathy have all chosen to hang up their boots and retire from the mod team.

Of course we'd like to thank them for all of the hard work that they have put in over their collective years, both on ONM and here on SONM, and hopefully we'll still see them around the forums, even if not quite as active. Moderating has always been a relatively thankless task, with everyone volunteering their time to help nurture the community while asking for no reward in return, and each of these four mods has done an excellent job in that regard!

From a personal perspective I'd also like to thank all four of them for their help with SONM. Running a forum can be hard work, and it is definitely a team effort to which all four of them have contributed greatly.

ChainedTeapot was the force behind the SONM Network community youtube channel, and it would not exist as it does today if it were not for his efforts. I can only hope we will continue to see the channel grow despite CT moving on from the team, but I have every confidence that it will! Teapot was also a great help during the initial creation of Super ONM during the transition from the ONM forums, so he has definitely left his mark on the boards!

LFF has definitely been one of the more active moderators, as evidenced by his efforts just yesterday in running through the SONM Summer Awards Results. He has been a great asset to the team, and while he may increasingly find less time to break away from real life and visit us here on SONM, I hope that he will at least always find time for me to occasionally beat him on Civ 5!

LightSamus has perhaps not been the most active over here on Super ONM, but back on ONM he was a familiar sight, so it will be sad to see him finally leave the team. Here on SONM LS threw his weight into several discussions behind the scenes and in the modroom, helping us to gain our first affiliate in GRcade, so thank you for that!

Finally, Wrathy is a person who needs no introduction. Serving as a moderator on ONM and SONM for a combined who-even-knows how long, Wrathy has consistently been one of the most active, responsive, and heavily involved mods on the team. Also she is technically the owner of HSDYFRN, so you can't get much more high profile than that! (At least, not on SONM anyway.) It'll certainly be strange seeing her name in a colour other than green, but if anyone deserves honourary retirement from the modteam, it's Wrathy!

And just in case you were wondering, there are not currently any plans to recruit any new moderators. Even with the departure of these four we believe that we still have the capability to run the forum without any additional team members, but of course that may well change in the future! That however is a discussion for another time - for now let's all just thank ChainedTeapot, LFF, LightSamus and Wrathy for all their hard work as (S)ONM moderators!

It'll be weird not seeing Wrathy's name in green (as you said), i can't remember when exactly she became a mod, but she's been one for as long as i can remember around these parts.

But yeah, anyways, cheers to the departing mods for their efforts, and i wish them all the best with their post-mod plans.

This is because they didn't win model mod isn't it? You disguised the awards as some kind of firing picking thing

Wasn't Wrathy one of the original mods on OONM?

Still, it's a shame to see them all step down. Going to be weird seeing their names in black, not green.

Wrathy was modded some time after OONM started, in fact, i can't even remember the names of most of the original OONM mod team.

Sad to see them step down. Wrathy in particular was a cornerstone of the community.

Thank you for your service. Godspeed.

Pretty sure RWAH was one too. I can't exactly remember either. That was nearly 8-9 years ago. :/

I think D_Bug might have been an original mod.

Going to be very odd seeing Wrathy without that green name as people have said, but assuming some of those mods are either leaving or stepping down for other ventures, good luck in everything.

Don't remember being around when any of you guys were modded, so it'll be different seeing your names in any colour but green.

Even knowing about this for a while it will be strange to see you guys in black, Wrathy has been a mod forever, and CT being modded is one of my first memories of the time I started to become active on OONM.

It's a real shame to see them go, especially considering how important they are to the community, Wrathy and LFF being fairly active still on this forum.
