History

The forums have split, merged and been renamed many times. This has mostly had no effect on the status of Moderators, but after the Spring 2015 Admin Meeting, it was decided to make the Mafia Mods into admins, rather than staff.

In September 2020 the Department of Moderators and Operators was disbanded, alongside the practice of hiring moderators for separate forums. The Moderator position was transferred to the Department of Technology. In January 2022 it was moved again, and now exists outside of the departmental structure, reporting directly to the Tower Mediators.
