Another departure

Hello everyone! This is just a quick announcement from me to say that I will be following in the footsteps of Kerstin and Sigil, and stepping down as moderator on this community. Some of you may have noticed that I have been quite inactive on Livejournal. This is because other things in my life are a priority right now, and I need to put them and myself first.

I have very much enjoyed my time as a member of the staff here, and I'm sad that it has come to an end but I know that the community is in good hands. :)

- Shuki.

Why does everyone we love leave us!?

Man, staffing has taken a hit this week! A_B is going to need some more help!

AB is a particularly demanding volunteer position, so it never surprises me when people leave. It's a lot to ask of people for no pay!

That said, AB will be okay, don't worry. I'll be looking for more moderators when things have settled again.

Will you be opening up applications?
I really have a lot of free time, especially on non-class days and would love to volunteer as part of staff.

I haven't entirely decided yet! I already have some people lined up so it might not be necessary.

Mods ARE here
While it looks shaky to see three mods go at once, its just one of those things. Life happens, and those who just retired have A LOT on their own plates, so they felt it was in there best interests to step down.

We're all on fabulous terms with eachother still, and I am sure when time allows they'll pop in for visits.

So again, ship's not sinking, just changing ports.

Ship will sail on, don't worry! I know its strange to see almost half the crew depart all at once but it really came down to timing being odd. One of those everything-happens-at-once sorts of things. :) There are plans to bring in new mods though!

I know you've already been replied to, but I want to clarify that the mods that have left had already been fairly inactive for months. Kerstin's departure inspired the other's. It doesn't actually change much since the mods who have been active are still here.

I know it's not a 'fun' answer full of drama and secrets but unfortunately, the truth is boring. They're too busy for AB, and that really is all it is. And it's entirely understandable. AB is surprisingly intensive and time consuming for a volunteer moderator position.

Thank you for your work, and good luck! ^^

P.S. I read A_B pretty often, and I have an opportunity to visit LJ in daytime, so I maybe I can help? The only problem is English is not my native.
