    All your mods don't suddenly step down for no reason and all at the same time. I think there is a solution here.
    If the site and the users are stressing you out, it may be time to step down. Kev, I'm not trying to insult you, or undermine your accomplishments in the past 15 years, so please don't interpret it that way. It has been, however, a very long time, and it may be time to step back, relax, and let someone else handle it.

    I always tell everyone: if something starts to affect your health, either physically or mentally, stop.

    You had very, very solid staff, but you took away the tools that they needed in order to hold down the fort. You can't expect them to fend off a siege without any weapons, can you now? Wether it was by accident or not is irrelevant. It happened, and you need to realize it was due to your actions. If you're going to leave for any remotely extended periods of time, someone else better have full admin access to the site, especially if you leave your mods without the tools they need.

    If you're wondering why the site traffic has gone down, it's because your users aren't coming to the site anymore. They all are finding other ways to get communicate, specifically methods in which people that are in charge are available.

    I hope you find this at least a little bit useful, and again, this isn't supposed to be an insult, but hopefully a point of view that will be heard.
    Thanks,
    sys

    He won't listen. He'll pretend to and say something along the lines of "I am considering options" and his next post will disregard everything, label this entire situation as drama. The entire staff quit and he's still saying that this has happened before and everything will return to normal lol

    You seem very much in denial.

    Have to be blunt here.
    Your lack of leadership isn't 'drama'. The mods including myself throwing the towel in, isn't drama.
    You lied to your staff, users and yourself and you say everyone is at fault?
    We (the staff) were all insulted by your actions. That's why.

    Supreme leader says it's our fault. I guess it's time to face the firing squad. :(

    Lots of people have made some very good suggestions on how to improve the site in this thread.
    Many people have even used concise bullet point lists, just as Kev had asked.

    So it seems very strange that the only post he has acknowledged and actually responded to is that one which sided with him. A post which provided no suggestions on improving the sit at all.

    What is the point of this thread?
    It seems like you only want the communities opinion if it is the same as your own.
    This sounds like nothing is going to change.

    When was the last time all of the mods quit all at once?

    The beatings will continue until morale improves.

    Just about every popular forum has seen a (very) sharp drop in traffic in the last 3-4 years - caused by a rise in the popularity of social media (notably FB).

    How many of them had a 6-month downtime?

    Where is that post? Oh I see it was edited afterwards.

    I would have lost my former-mod composture if I had read it in its original form.

    Would it be possible for you to revert your post to its original form? For someone who's defending the admin's actions in the most hilariously 1-sided manner, it's not like you to retract your statement this way. Besides, the good people of this community have already preserved your original for posterity.

    What do are you in this forum for? Video game discussion, or drama discussion?

    I think people are tired of the drama and want more content.

    +1 for more content

    And thus continues a very dark time for the technical side of video gaming…

    You totally ignored my suggestion about PMs. That’s not drama - it’s concrete information about how to manage the site. What is the point of this thread if you’re not going to respond to things like that? Just so you can keep saying “Everything’s okay, everything’s okay, everything’s okay” over and over despite what everyone else is saying?

    Are you trying to embarrass yourself? If so, good job. Keep up the good work.

    Facebook ≠ Forum.
    I go to Facebook to stab my eyes out at how terrible everything about it is while talking to my friends who insist on using it to talk.
    I go to a forum to check on a nicely organized database of information specific to my particular interests, while not stabbing my eyes out at all the god damned distractions trying to trick you to go pay attention to them. You know, like in those "group" things people try to whore out.
