EwmanM

Post by Juliet P »

Have I missed something? How come Ewan no longer appears as a mod?

Has he also stopped working for the news side of the site?

I'm confused... :confused:

He is still a mod and the handle still appears, atleast for me it does.

Rank is different from power level (mod, admin etc) if I remember correctly in phpBB; I know he is friends with McLaren Fan so maybe its something to do with that?

You'll also notice that he is no longer part of the "Global Moderators" group like the users listed in GREEN!

But I do hope that Ewan hasn't left the forum as I find his articles and comments very interesting.

Ewan got demoted as a mod

Its to do with this Mclaren - Tex Thing He was just trying to keep Chris (Mclaren Fan) informed of what was going on and not trying to stir up trouble.

I was talking to him on the phone a few hours ago but i heard what sounded like a gunshot and the line went dead. :eek:

So perhaps someone from the CIA...sorry Forum has shot him.

So Ewan is probably dead which is a shame because he was a really nice guy and now i have to find a new host for the podcast.

No doubt there's some wet-work going on to finish me off so its been nice knowing you guys.

...Or maybe he just dropped the phone... and it smashed into a million pieces?

But it's sad to lose a good member and moderator because of something silly like this; but I guess rules are rules; the moderators forum is invisible for a reason!

Here is the straight poop concerning what mod's cannot do. We, yes I'm still modding just not in an "official" capacity yet :wink: , cannot share PM's with anyone and that mean's with other mod's aswell. If Ewan was keeping an ex-patriot of the forum informed about the going on's of a forum the ex-patriot left by choice it is still a breach of the rules. I have no doubt in my mind that the situation was instigated by said ex-forum patriot.

Am I happy about it, no, but rules are rules and a breach of them may lead to a conclusion that will most likely be taken out of context. I'm sure Ewan will return as an "official mod" as he was hopefully just given a sabbatical as I was. :)

Rules are rules mate and they can be broken without realizing it so no it is not extreme. Some of the members of this forum get away with thing's that will get them sent to the "sin bin" or permanently banned on other forums so we think that the members should consider themselves lucky, as I do myself :D !
As the forum grows the rules will most likely get more strict, as they should imo, so in reality this forum is still an "unfenced playground" so enjoy it.

I don't think we need you back Tex, i'm sure alot of people will agree with me here that your particular brand of IronFist™ moderating isn't what people want or need and it caused Mclaren Fan to leave and the forum to go dead for over a week.

Also as a result of all this one of the fourms best Mods (Ewan) has now been removed from his position.

Hopfully your sabbatical will stay on a little longer tho and the admins won't make a hasty decision that could result in more people leaving. :wink:

I have always been "just a forum member" but this thread is about EwmanM and not about me so I will leave it at that :) .
