We spent many happy hours chatting in the very early days of the site, and I was always impressed with your maturity and insight. I don't think we would have gotten out of beta, let alone graduated and succeeded as much as we have without your help and input. I was happy with you sticking around as a moderator because we have a great corps and you ...

I was involved in an edit war at EE.SE earlier this year, over this answer. The following meta discussion is here. Based on this experience, IMO if a particular edit is rolled back once by the OP, no further edits in that vein should be made, ever, except by the OP him/herself (or by someone who has their unambiguous blessing). The spurned editor then has ...

It has been a pleasure working, discussing, and chatting with you. Your input and guidance, especially in the transition to graduation, are invaluable. I am most thankful to you (and of course jonsca) for showing me how to deal with the plethora of buttons that come along with the diamond. I somewhat still feel like a noob here and I will continue to regard ...

There is no answer to this other than pure outrage.

I thought long and hard whether or not I should comment, but because the post reads like that the moderating team enforced this edit war, which is simply not true, I think it is necessary to clear up a few things. First and foremost I agree that this kind of disagreement over the state of a post should be avoided at all costs as it transports the wrong ...

Out of curiosity, I dug around and there's a Stack Exchange Data Explorer site. You can get your user-id from your profile or user URL (e.g., mine is 5017). Enter it and you'll get the score.

Well, let's look at the factors in play: Rep: Being a trusted user wins 20 scores. In short, each 1k rep till 20k counts as 1 score, and the rep gets truncated. So, for me, someone with 2768 reps, it's 2 scores, outta 20. Moderation badges: (Shamelessly copied from the meta.SE post on this very nominal occurrence) Civic Duty, Cleanup, Deputy, Electorate, ...

I think if moderators want to take this on, great! If it leads to higher-quality (and fewer down-voted) questions on the front page of the site, that would be worthwhile. What would you do if there is already an answer, or if there is already a back-and-forth between the OP and other users, though? To me, that sometimes indicates that there is a willingness ...

As a formerly highly active user whose activity sadly has come to a little bit of a standstill in 2018, please allow me to also extend my thanks from the point of view of a non-diamond but nonetheless high-rep user. While my first post to this site was pre-graduation, my contribution only really started post-graduation so I missed out on a lot of the early ...

Leaving the tone of the question aside there is a series of misconceptions or misinformation that I wish to point out. As a moderator, one might think that I am biased, but I will let the community judge what I write. Here's a quick recap [...] A moderator deleted the second phrasing of the question. (1) I was the first editor of the question. At the ...

I'm afraid I can't serve as a personal consultant for every post, so this will be my last. However, I suspect that some of the issues brought up in my previous comment, as well as the ones here, are relevant to a few of your posts – so that may give you something to work on more generally, even after this particular post. Grammar. There are small ...

See Melanie's answer here on Mother Meta (meta.stackexchange.com). I am a moderator on Chemistry and am suspending moderating activity. Due to multiple reasons, as mentioned in the main post, Loong, or Faded Giant as he was known, decided to terminate his stack exchange account. Jonsca also stepped down recently from the moderator position. See the ...

As a reply to Karsten Theis' answer, What would you do if there is already an answer, or if there is already a back-and-forth between the OP and other users, though? Not many in our community instantly answer such questions. In fact, as a pattern, I haven't seen anyone answer such questions for a while now. If there is a back and forth that means OP has ...

From The Tavern chat: "The way the announcement reads, even after its most recent edit, is that if a newly elected moderator (or one who has had 60 days) doesn't accept the new agreement: they'll be asked to, other mods on the site will be consulted to see if an election should be held (again), an election might be held and they'll be replaced - ...
