Is the Moderator job the place where jelly veterans go to die?
I count eight mods plus auggie right now. Those who have been here a while know that the modding position, which is voluntary (bless their little hearts) is quite temporary. It is rare for a mod to last very long – mostly due to our being assholes and not treating them with the respect they deserve.
However, my question is this: how many mods have successfully “come back”, or rather, stayed on after their modding stint?
It seems the transition to mod usually, not always, but oftentimes is a smooth one; coming back from modding can be a rough landing.
I think we are losing too many good jellies because of this. Mods are jellies too, and they would like to post and mingle like the rest of us – but find it hard to do so.
What can we, the jellies, do about this?
