Why did JaneFairfax and Tigeree rank down to Super Member?

When I saw a thread, named "Today in history", I saw that they both ranked down. Why is it like this?

Hi;

I noticed that too.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Change to the new server probably. There were very, very few anomalies, that is one. I fixed it.

Hm, There are a lot of Real Members who were not even Star Members previously.
And there are moderators who never come back

Why?

Real members are appointed.

Moderators have left the forum. Being young people like yourself they may have had a big change in their life and no longer have the free time.

Hi;

Oh yes, they were all  very young. They are probably working now.

Well, I think they would use Jane's brain rather than eat it.

Why?

I thought we were discussing moderators who never came back? I would suppose being in college then that they are working now.

Re: Why did JaneFairfax and Tigeree rank down to Super Member?

Did you know them personally?
Besides, they were from a different time.

You can be cool and working too. Especially if you have a nice air conditioned office.

Of course we would love for them to return, but after few years I think it's unlikely.

That is true. Unfortunately I have to agree, it is not likely we will ever see the past mods ever again.
