@winter: you're post is so backwards, if you're referring to present times.
Team Maestro and Team Kefka. Yeah it really is immature, but it's to be expected as it is basically human nature to divide into parties. Team Kefka members get pardoned by Kefka if they slip up, and team Maestro is basically everyone else on the forum.
This mentality I will agree is immature, and I have noticed a degree of it. However, it looks more like the opposite: Sheep that seem to blindly follow maestro's bizarre modding and rules without question label anyone that doesn't think that way as a group and puts kefka as the "supposed" leader. Newsflash sheep: kefka doesn't lead some secret army of rebels, you imagined that up. Just because he has common sense and thinks rationally (which will contradict other mods; what a world) doesn't make him super special, it makes him normal. People who don't think logically in this manner are what I fear.
It allows an event to be brought into question, to be discussed by the mods, and to have a compromise made. It's how it should be. In team Kefka, however, it's a decision made by solely Kefka, and has the opportunity to be biased.
BS. Until recently, there has been almost 0 viewable discussions between maestro and the two new mods, and what little discussion can be seen is: maestro saying something absurd and the other two blindly agreeing (most likely out of intimidation). The reason we wanted more moderators was so that there could be discussion before
decisions were hastily made. Unfortunately, the opposite occurred: rather than discussion taking place, maestro will propose something, the other two will quickly agree with it, and majority is free to stamp blind approvals. Ffs, look at what he's done to the rules. In an effort to make things more "clear," it's more convoluted than ever. The old rules were fine, and kefk and I both said that.
Jamaha intended all the mods to work together, however they aren't. 3 work together and the other one doesn't do much, and when he shows up and makes a decision, it's without consulting other mods. Or so I've heard.
From what I've seen, kefka is playing clean-up duty. Not to mention ofc. your mods aren't going to work together if you're excluding one from a private mod chat. That shit is childish.
