As many of you are aware, we have had a number of moderators who were assigned to forums but have been inactive for a long time. They had been kept on the list for various reasons, ranging from laziness on the administrators part to sentimental reasons, or even the Hotel California clause. However, it had gotten a bit excessive, and the feedback was that it was often confusing for people wanting to contact a moderator, and inadvertently (no fault on heir part) trying to contact one who was not active. So... the list has now been cleaned-up. As part of this, I wanted to offer those that had previously served on-staff a small token-gesture of thanks, so I created the "Retired Moderators" group. This is entirely opt-in for ex-staff who wanted to be recognized in this way (some declined, and some were uncontactable / unresponsive). You will see those that opted-in having a shiny new badge under their usernames. For any ex moderators who still want to opt-in, just send me a PM! Edit: If someone wants to design a better colour scheme....I want something that is distinguishable at a glance from active moderators, but am open to whatever. Green and green may be a tad hideous!
