First of all, admins are higher in the chain of command than moderators. That means that admins can set site policies that moderators have to follow. As such, anything an admin does is setting an example for the mods (whether they follow that example or not is of course something else entirely). Also, any action taken by a team member will always reflect on the team as a whole.Krulle wrote: ↑Mon Nov 19, 2018 4:30 amWasn't BA banned (and unbanned) by Thunt, and not by a mod?
This post seems to refer to Thunt having done some bad and inconsistent decisions himself.
And this post is Thunt's view of the story.
And Thunt is not a "mod"erator here, he has admin access.
IMHO Thunt is not a moderator here, and his actions are not necessarily reflecting the stance and behaviour of the mods.
Also, in my experience most forum users (regardless of forum) don't make a distinction between admin and mod. "Mod" is usually a stand-in for "team member," whether it is appropriate for the situation or not. However, whether that is true in this specific case I cannot know.
But let's take a step back; nowhere did RocketScientist specify that she was talking about moderators only. She was talking about people banned overall, which I assumed included everyone. Therefore I also assumed that the one person she referred to is BrassBaboon, who was also banned by Hunt. If that is not the person she referred to I call shenanigans; excluding people banned because they were banned not by a mod but by an admin, without even stating that distinction is deliberate misinformation in order to whitewash the statistic.
