Cerium should be brought out of his cave and forced to share the financials of the site. The fact that he apparently never shared them with the community or even the mod team in the first place is extremely suspect. I have a hard time seeing how the site could be bleeding money given the high traffic and Era Clear sub, but even assuming it does, we should know about it. And if it's making a profit, we should know where the money goes, and the mod/admin team should be compensated. Echoing sentiments that some people on the team need to step down based on how badly they've been handling things. And yes, let's not be coy about this: I mean B-Dubs. I'm sure some people have other team members in mind, but as far as no-brainers are concerned, B-Dubs, at least, has to go. His replies in the thread have all been terrible, petty and antagonizing, and look at the result. Also, unban BDS, as a show of good faith. At the very least, make her ban temporary with a clear duration (not a "pending" that might just quietly turn into a perm; "pending durations" are just dumb and often feel like a way to quietly sweep permabans under the rug btw). Regardless of what you thought of her post or her post history, this thread and this discussion aren't exactly the best places to ban people for being angry at the mod team. "Not a good look", as the kids say. I'd honestly say the same of Frump's ban, and would definitely appreciate it if he was unbanned too, but at least his is just a 2-week ban. [EDIT] Just to be clear: the whole reason why I'm prefacing my call for B-Dubs to go with "let's not be coy about this" is precisely because, as others have rightly pointed out, there are definitely things we, as regular posters, feel we're not allowed to say about the mod/admin team or their decisions without fear of retaliation. So others in the thread have been more vague by not giving any specific names so that they can avoid the ban they feel they might otherwise get, but it's clear we all at least mean B-Dubs here, and I'm tired of beating around the bush. We shouldn't feel like mods and admins are our managers and we're just employees who better behave or else. If that gets me banned, so be it, but I'm not retracting that part, and again, that definitely won't be a good look for you.
