Honestly, a decent turnover on mod positions would probably be good. This place is run as a dugnad after all. Let people chip in, learn the ropes and add their good ideas to this.
From Norwegian dugnad, from Old Norse dugnaðr (“help”). NounEdit. dugnad (plural dugnads). Unpaid voluntary, orchestrated community work.
Also, Advameg should announce a supermod / admin in their place. Not that it will happen, but I still think it should be requested.

By the way, I guess it's okay to share this correspondence from Yac and I in 2015. He's long gone since then and it might be mildly interesting to people here. I was bugging him about changes. / updates back then too (I'm relentless). This is one of his answers:

As it is, from what I'm told, the numbers are good and we don't want any big changes. Eventually I hope things will change, but as it is, everything seems to work well... to some, at least.
Unless you know of a way of implementing groundbreaking changes without actually, so to say, breaking any ground ? We have a saying in poland - chujowo ale stabilnie, which roughly translates to fu*ked up, but stable. I think it can be applied here..
So we were ****ed up, but too stable or our numbers were too good to warrant any big changes back in 2015.

I responded early...

That being said, I have no comment since I haven't read the exchange. The mod team was in agreement with the ban. Maybe some more will chime in here but I just don't have a pony in this show so I'm abstaining.
That being said. I don't really care if new mods replace old ones. You can have me if you want. I'll sacrifice myself. Stick me in the pit, I don't care.

Otherwise, you all can wait until I stop having existential panic attacks and come back clean. I do planning on being more active once I get my sense of self back. However, right now, I don't give a sh*t about any of this.

The rabble of the message board where I have been a member for 13 years and a mod for like 7 just sisn't on my list of priorities right now.

That also being said, I think I deserve a f*cking hiatus so you guys can also get f*cked if you have issue with that.

See? No condition to mod right now. I'll see you guys later.

Jokes aside man, I hope you get better and get right soon. Take your time. We'll survive, I'm sure. Life and your sense of well-being is more important than MusicBanter.

Everything is more important than Mucus Banter.

Except me.


Seriously, Exo you're right. It's all bollocks and none of it compares to real-life crises, so back out and do what you have to do. Make your life better. This place will either be here when you come back or it won't, but your mental health and state of well-being are fragile things and you need to protect them.

tl;dr: **** this place.

No one expects anyone to put mb over their personal lives - just to be as self aware as Exo and admit it to yourself when you need to step back, or down.

I agree with all the sentiments here. Whenever I needed to take a hiatus for my mental health I just did it. As much as I love MB and the community here when my RL needs some attention I make it a priority usually without saying so which I should get better at.
