So what is the result of this all? I don't mean the vote count, but the consequence of it.

I see there has been work put into the forum administration. Just kudayta is still in the list. That's not what I expected to happen. What did the ambiguous term demote mean in the first place?

It is extraordinarily entertaining to watch someone wears a mask, and his face grows to fit it!

I will be making a post on the full detailed outcome of the elections very soon, just been very busy this week with real life.

Basically, and from what I can visually see:

Kudayta was demoted by John via ACP, and no longer controls the forums in whole. However, he is still part of the DEFCON Moderators. (a new forum group that John created, and screwed the process up along the way...)

DTNC Vicious was promoted, he is the group leader of the DEFCON Moderators user group. This gives him the ability to promote or demote any user into or out of the DEFCON Moderators user group.

RGeezy, trolling is fine but you have to start playing Defcon.

We'd all enjoy it too...

This was all sarcasm, in case you forgot that such caliber of sarcasm was used on me at one point:
RGeezy911 wrote:Vic is now your new head. Shower him with as much praise and approval as possible, lest he becomes lax, and this whole process repeats itself.

Welcome to the vicious cycle that is DEFCON
In case no one ever welcomed you...

However, the rest of my post holds true. I've corrected the "DEFCON Moderators" link to the user group in my post above.


Edit: My explanation post has been revised, the sarcasm was not the best approach. Apologies.

Yes, your post was a mixture of sarcastic taunts and restating public knowledge (plus the inaccurate bit about Vic).

A good flame post in my book!

We love you really - your story is irresistible. A once proud bureaucrat made a bitter and broken man by the Defcon hate machine...now resigned to forever stalk the forum and haunt its users. Sulking in the shadows and spitting upon all of us.

Our fates are intertwined, Geezy, you can't leave us now. Reach for that credit card...and make a purchase of....DEFCON: Everybody Dies.

PS: on a serious note a bot has been steadily making over 11 pages of spam on the Prison Architect general board...why did you resign over there?

Remember that topic about me? Yeah, I realized the staff sucks at running a decent community. They have given the mod position to someone else. Looks like they lost interest too.

And I already have DEFCON. I've also mentioned I played it, and it did not appeal to me.

Edit: I'm pretty sure John will realize... or just mod someone else. Whatever comes first.

The guy who ran the election gets promoted, even though no one voted to promote any candidate.

10/10 election would fap again

I don't think he got promoted. He simply stayed an admin while the other 2 got some privileges taken from them.

Isn't that a promotion, relatively speaking? The other mod that was voted to remain the same rank now has far less power.

Vic can also add/remove users to the 'Defcon moderators' group, but who even knows what that means because here's no transparency here at all. Just a lot of silence and evasion.

Funny how Vic's indignant rant defending his integrity was lengthier than all the other 'updates' combined.

Don't know what has changed for kud.
I have same rights as before.
Apparently so does Vic, though he is now also "group leader" for moderators. I doubt he can give/remove mod rights at will, in any case it's obvious John wants Vic as the main mod. So I'd count that as promotion.
