    I note that the initial question was never answered properly.

    We have elections and moderators are elected. Easy as winning.

    You had elections. Most of them were your own clueless shams. The last one, one of the few non-sham ones, was in 2014 and all elected terms ended at the end of that year.
    Note: I have poster antichrist on ignore. On no account should anyone assume that I agree with, or am unable to refute, any comment by poster antichrist, simply because I have not responded to it. Chances are I have not even seen it. (NB Quoting posts by antichrist to try to get around this issue will mostly be ineffective). I am also sometimes denied the ability of reply to false accusations in the shoutbox.

    Blue Knight 2014 Elections Were Honest, Straight, And Carried Out In Good Faith!

    The moderators elected in 2014 still have all of their moderating powers, and they may come to the forum as often as they see fit to clean up your messes (and those left by other malcontents as well).

    Its true that we haven't had elections since, but there hasn't been an appetite for such, because elections are costly and time intensive processes. Also, like Chess Chat has discovered, chess forums are no longer the leading way that chess players choose to communicate via social media. That's largely Facebook as a communication/interaction medium now.

    That is only because of your supreme incompetence in failing to either hold another election or else remove those powers when their defined terms ended.

    This is just typical J2G lying gibberish, except for the small amount of truth at the core of it, which is that you are pathetically lazy. Your elections cost you nothing and in the few that were properly run (by me) the effort was mostly mine.

    Also, like Chess Chat has discovered, chess forums are no longer the leading way that chess players choose to communicate via social media. That's largely Facebook as a communication/interaction medium now.
    Irrelevant. If you want to be honest and say you can't be bothered to have elections anymore because of the lack of activity here, or that you are afraid of having elections in case cory wins again, then just say it. Don't pretend "We have elections" when anyone can see you haven't for years.

    I assume KB is not serious and is simply dabbling in a bit of satire here.

    Kasparov seems pretty light on moderation
