• Moderator election

    From Björn Felten@2:203/2 to All on Wed Dec 1 08:18:23 2021
    Did we skip a moderator election in this echo ... ?

    BTW, when was the "elected" moderator last seen. Anywhere in FidoNet even?

    Apparently we don't need a moderator, nor an elisting, for the area to function nicely...

    I think that was Allen Prunty. He just left a couple of years ago without notification...


    Bye, Wilfred.

    Wasn't this the echo where bi-annual moderator elections were a 'cast in concrete thing'? Or was that the other global fidonet sysop echo?

    It was yearly for this echo...

    It was this one. And at first it was annual.

    That concrete crumbled away when the casters of that concrete succeeded in getting rid of Bjrn Felten as moderator.


    Cheers, Michiel

    It was more than a couple of years ago. It was before COVID.

    It was early 2018 when he last posted here. Is 3 (ish) years still a couple? ;-)
