A few blatant lies that need correcting...

A) When Miguel left, Ryuu and I were both Head Mods. Ryuu had some stuff happen in that time (away from VGC) and needed to step down (we even had a thread that highlighted this change) - ironically, one of the only moderator threads that you didn't participate in.
B) The closure of The Moderator Thread was 100% a team decision 

So I'm going to put this nicely, stop letting your conspiracies run wild. And yes, I'm stepping it up to a warning now. 

Already addressed the misunderstanding in my response to Ryuu.

The subsequent question is why there was no need for a second and third head moderator anymore. I won't speculate on it, because you said I shouldn't. Straight-forward question that can be expanded to will we see a return of a second or even third head moderator in the foreseeable future.

But you didn't apologize for the false information, and say you'll make an effort to do better next time.

And that's relevant to one of the reasons for why it was difficult to find a solution that would keep the Moderator Thread open.
When people have no regard for making false suggestions, and instead of giving any positive feedback they choose to find a new (some times irrelevant) problem to focus on entirely.
But that's a discussion for another thread I'd be happy to have with you at the right time and place.

Though regarding Ryuu's position being filled, frankly I would say he still acted in a similar capacity when it came to support and interactions with the other mods, so it never really felt like we were one head mod short from my perspective, outside of the couple of weeks when he went on a break.

Honestly, there has been talk about getting rid of the multiple head mod role for years. Same for the Moderator thread. These ideas worked well until they didn't. 

Multiple head mods doesn't prevent burnout that comes with the title or the weight of the decisions being made.  There was always 1 head mod that was more active than the others that would be the deciding factor on the harsher decisions. CGI does often ask for input before making decisions that will affect the community so in a sense, we all act as deputy head mods (look, this title is going to have to be pried from my cold dead hands). 

As far as the Moderator Thread, it always devolves into exactly what it became yet again. I prefer having an announcement thread to address the community when events happen because not everybody wants to read through pages asking why FlamingWeazel was banned to figure out what news is happening.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Is that dude still around or did he finally give up?

Haven't seen him in a while.

Talon implemented some stuff a while ago which made it a lot more awkward to create alts, slowed quite a few people down.

Or maybe he's here right now, among us...
