    Many of you may know, many of you may not. Any mod can fill you in on the details if you wish to know, but essentially, the whole blacked-out Mod names are due to this (as stated by Raven):

    An element of site ownership has told the entire Mod Squad that we must provide him with our real names and addresses and such by registering at another message board and then passing on our user names there to him through G-S. If we do not, we get demoted. All future moderators will have to provide this information. This may be expanded to cover City Representatives as well.

    The Mod Squad and Old Folks Home have two major issues.
    1) The security of the information and the purpose behind the information gathering. As everyone is probably well aware, the Mod Squad is about as leaky as the Titanic. This has fostered worries about how secure this information would be, even though it?s being stored elsewhere. No system is perfect, and there is the worry that that information might come out and what might be done with that information. And we?ve yet to be told why we need to give it (though the guess that it is something along the lines of ?if LFL sues, it?s on the shoulders of the moderators?).
    2) The way that this has been handled by site ownership. More than anything else, I think that?s what?s at the heart of this. The feeling in the Mod Squad and Old Folks Home is that an element of the site ownership does not care about the message boards and the users and moderators here in any way at all. We as a group have not been provided with reasons why the information is needed; we feel that we?ve been threatened; we feel that we?ve been insulted; and finally we feel that we?ve been ignored.


    If you would like more information, or just feel the need to read TFN drama, check out the following Communications thread:

    Why are the mods black with a line through?

    Feel free to agree or disagree with the situation.

    Those of us in the Phoenix Fan Force and Rocky Mountain Fan Force who are supporting our Mods, RSAs, GSAs and city reps have decided to go Icon-less - or "naked" essentially.

    If you'd like to join us, "strip down" your icon, and add the line in my sig to your sig.

    :)

    P.S. An Icon HAS been created to support the Mods - if/when it gets uploaded, feel free to use it.

    KK EDIT: See last post.

    It would be more effective if you asked to be banned in support of the mods.

    You might get a bigger support base in the JCC. Anyone who reads this thread in this forum probably already knows about what's going on. But the support is appreciated, I'm sure.

    I'm usually pretty quiet when it come to this stuff, but I do support the mods on this issue!!



    You should probably post a thread in FF comms, for the folks who dont come in here. ;)

    On the other hand, its a bit disrespectful for the icon makers. ;)

    But how will you distinguish mod supporters from users who just never bothered to pick an icon?

    Or were you hoping the owners were assume they'd dropped their icons in support as well? ;)

    EDIT: I've changed my mind. Personally, I would not mind giving up my PI, but no mod should be forced to do it. I hope this is cool. :cool:
