At this point the posts are negligible, because it's really just coming down to bickering.

If a mod is wanted off by a community as a whole, it's kinda weird how none of the so-called others have come out to speak about this. Like, this is a direct confrontation between only 2 people. From the looks of it the COD community isn't involved.

Had to reply to this

I can't force the Call of Duty community to say something, I told Havi what others and me agreed on and asked him in pms if what his thoughts were. Like I said I CAN'T force people to intervene, some just don't want to be involved ok? I gave the reason, they all are valid and solid. That's that

Could you please de-mod some supermods for http://www.speedrun.com/re2 ?
Srwatcher, Pyman and Sephjul. These guys have been inactive between 1 week to 3 months.
Messages was sent to them over a week ago without any response.

2 mods have already been added for replacements.

Thanks.

Hello guys,

I will only post once about that, very personnal stuff.
For the moment i have very important health issue and i simply cannot focus on speedrundotcom for the moment.

I m at hospital since 2 weeks and will be there for long time.
Btw about removing me from moderation of re2, it's a good decision.

I mean except my personnal issue, i m not an active RE2 moderator.
In the future i will give my opinion on the forum as every RE community runner.

So please, can you tell it to others about my problems and that i will come back.
Expecially RE1 community cause i m kinda involved.

Thanks for reading even if i know it s not the right place to write it.
If you want to talk, please do it on twitch or private message twitter cause i don t have my PC.
Love u all.

@Darazanjoll, I removed myself as super moderator on Resident Evil 2. There are much more active members of the community willing to actually put their time into verifying runs so it's only fair to leave it to them now in my opinion to do so. I'd like to add that I'm assuming the way you attempted to contact all of us was through twitch messages which I didn't even realize I had one in my inbox until reading this thread. Using twitter would have been a much better option in my opinion as we all would know the day of the tweet.

I believe the other 2 super moderators mentioned if you attempted to contact them the same way through their twitch inbox and not a more noticeable way are also not ignoring you on purpose either. I just wanted to put that out there.

Anyway, the TLDR version: I no longer have mod on the Resident Evil 2 leader board and I'd suggest contacting the 2 other people mentioned through a more reachable medium if you actually want their feedback on the matter.

In reference to the last couple of pages:

Why is it apparently too much to ask game moderators to behave like sensible, responsible, mature people? Seriously.

Seph, take as much time as you need. 🙂

Also yeah, messaging via Twitch should never be a thing really. They massively messed up message notifications (god knows why this still isn't fixed), so you just don't know you have a message unless you go in there randomly.

Twitter should always be the best form of contact, in my opinion, and every mod should try to at least have a twitter for contact.

@SephJul: stay safe, wish you the best!

@FurryWulfz, @srwatcher:
It was StevenMayte who sent the msg's and I wasn't aware that they were sent through twitch, since he's moving between houses and a kid on the way he is quite buzy atm so I posted in this thread on his behalf 😛

Hey, this isn't a really a typical request but nevertheless I need help with a leaderboard moderation thing. I'm a series mod for the Silent Hill series and a few of the games and we're currently having problems because most of our series mods are somewhat inactive for various reasons and a lot of these games only ever had series mods as moderators. I was added some length of time ago as a series mod to try and alleviate this problem only to find it basically didn't help at all since for some inexplicable reason games in the SH series appear to be decoupled from series moderator power, which makes having series mod effectively meaningless. Consequently, it's been a little hard to restructure the moderation of these boards.

The question I'm asking is, what in the fuck hell is going on with those boards? I can't see any way to undo or fix that particular problem so I can start adding more people and actually give the series some active moderators. We're a little stuck without some help on this one.

PS: I cannot think of a remotely tactful way to phrase a request like this so I'm just going to say it, but can I also request that you guys pull Zorkiy's mod from the SH series and any games he might have in it? He's been inactive on speedrun.com for seven entire months. The reason for this is that according to his friends and family, he actually died. And he's super mod, so we can't pull it ourselves? At least, I can't. Maybe I misunderstand how the system works to some degree. I'm really sorry to even have to ask that but since we're restructuring the moderation and all....

I think the site should have his name gray like the banned users and put deceased. I think it would be very disrespectful to delete his accomplishments. That includes mod, if he was watching that happening to him in hell/heaven it's likely he would be rolling over in his grave.

 
  PunchyPunchy

I can think of like, five reasons that's a terrible idea, but seriously who the fuck are you to know what he would've wanted or not. Shut up you remarkably insensitive lout of a person.

Either way, I'm not asking for his runs to be deleted, never would I ever suggest that. I'm being as business-like as possible that we need a mod removed for really long inactivity, the specific reasoning is incredibly sad, but the outcome is no different. Don't act weird about it, it's heartbreaking enough.

Whooooaa dude, im insensitive? You said it's a terrible Idea, to have him be on the site. I am pretty sure we all can be nice enough and leave his accomplishments on the site at least, or if you want to contact him family again and see what they want. Business includes money, I think you are refering to being "professional as possible", and I wasn't acting weird about it? I said he should stay on the site but be in gray and have it say either deceased, or RIP Runner.. something along those lines. This might be the first time the site had a deceased runner i believe. But still. Just a suggestion, wasn't doing anything bad in his memory.

They aren't asking for Zorkiy's times to be removed. They're asking for his mod status to be revoked, because people will likely message him to talk or ask for advice about the boards/runs/the game and they won't get a response back.

Should his times remain on the board? Yes, obviously.

Should he retain moderator status? No, why would that be the case? This simply has nothing to do showing the proper respect, because moderator is not a status symbol. It's a position of authority and responsibility for a user who is currently fulfilling a specific role. If that person is not fulfilling that role, they're simply NOT a moderator. I completely get wanting to memorialize someone, but this is not the way to do it. Make a thread on the game forum in memory of them or something, just not this. What you're requesting essentially results in the people in question never getting demodded, because when has it been long enough to do so?? Losing people is obviously horrible, but this is just an attempt to cling onto them and not move on.

Nosbile: That user is usually pretty active, maybe he was offline for a bit. I'd recommend discussing it with him.

Buffet_Time: He wasn't online for 2 months not 12, but I'll remove him since the board has no runs.

LGD: Run pending, added. I go through all of these posts in order even if they get pushed up by other posts.

eddiecatgaming: Popular games generally have active mods and active communities, those games probably don't have an inherent need for more mods.

Wolexi: Since you have runs I'll add you in this specific case.

Ozotuh: I'll consider this change if the message sits a bit longer.

Racingmonster: I don't think there's an inherent need to make a change here. Mods aren't really required to meet some huge standard for activity most of the time, so long as there aren't major issues and runs are being approved by someone. I skimmed your posts and I gathered "He's inactive and I don't like it." The presentation of your posts comes off strongly as argumentative. There are ways to say you're not a fan of inactivity without typing pages of posts.

Darazanjoll: Since 2/3 mods are okay with it and the third isn't particularly active, this is fine.

SuccinctAndPunchy: Series moderators don't auto-inherit any more. I think this situation is better than arguing about whether the old "Series mods have power here" box should be checked or not. I made some changes, including accidentally super modding and then unsuper modding one person to revert my mistake which might've sent them a confusing notification, whoops.

Got behind again, sorry.

Sorry, but its been four weeks, I have every right to be angry!

Yeah let's be rude towards people who do this voluntarily on their free time and who may have more important stuff to deal with IRL.

You don't have any pending runs on these games so why do you request these games ?
Also, considering that you are moderator of dozens of games, and only have runs in 4 (or 5 at most) games, I'm am not in favour of letting you being moderator of more games. You just seem to take moderation for random games for weird reasons.
Oh, and I quoted your message so it's pointless to edit or delete it.

EDIT : I like how he still deleted his message.
