When I saw a thread, named "Today in history", I saw that they both ranked down. Why is it like this?

Change to the new server probably. There were very, very few anomalies, that is one. I fixed it.

Hm, There are a lot of Real Members who were not even Star Members previously.

And there are moderators who never come back

Why?

Real members are appointed.

Moderators have left the forum. Being young people like yourself they may have had a big change in their life and no longer have the free time.

Were they so young? I never thought so

Hi;

Oh yes, they were all very young. They are probably working now.

If I was working, after 17 : 00, I will check the forum!

Then, I will give my time to the forum!

Well, I think they would use Jane's brain rather than eat it.

And there are moderators who never come back

Why?

I thought we were discussing moderators who never came back? I would suppose being in college then that they are working now.

Did you know them personally?

Besides, they were from a different time.

You can be cool and working too. Especially if you have a nice air conditioned office.

Of course we would love for them to return, but after few years I think it's unlikely.

That is true. Unfortunately I have to agree, it is not likely we will ever see the past mods ever again.
