Let me start by saying that I know nothing about what's happened; but I think that, whatever it is, it is worthy of more than an edit to an old meta post. Regardless of why Mnementh has ceased to bear a diamond, thanks are due for his service (I don't think I'm making assumptions by adopting the masculine pronoun, but I apologise if this is not correct).
Secondly, thanks are also due to apsillers, for picking up the load - and to our other stalwart mods, ArtOfCode and Zizouz212, for having shouldered it for so long. God knows, the site's been in beta for nearly three years (this is not a complaint about that, as the criteria for leaving beta are clear and well-defined - it's just that I'm not sure that anyone who signed up as mod pro tem on day one was agreeing to do it forever!). This may all sound a bit OBN, but I have some form for dodging diamonds on ServerFault, which I do because I have a pretty clear idea of how much (thankless) work a diamond can be, and I'm lazy.
But I do feel that I detect the silent-yet-omnipotent hand of site management. There is no procedure in the pro tem mod definition for a change of guard whilst in beta. Whilst I for one am happy with the result, I am less happy with the process, which seems to have been some ad hoc arrangement that doesn't involve the community, carried on under the usual panoply of silence.
Could we get some kind of statement about the change, even if it's only an official acknowledgment that the change has happened, perhaps coupled with an admission that it all might have been done a little less sub rosa?
