No, recently because of the site pushing for a more site moderated format all voting moderation has ceased. Whiteflame has been moved to assistant moderator, and both airmax and himself are using the same account which is only focusing on spam, threats, and other pertinent issues that moderator should be focused on.

Voting moderation is now obsolete after the last official meeting

There was a meeting and it was decided that whiteflame's position was obsolete. Many discussions were had on the subject, and due to whiteflame's IRL commitments (which are legitimate, serious, and time consuming) in concert with the general lack of appreciation for votes being moderated, the position was phased out.

While many appreciate the work he put in, most realized that it was time.

Facts are facts. Mikal and I were both at the meeting. It was held via google hangout, among the inner circle.

I'm surprised you don't know about the inner circle. Usually people hear about it some point or another.

Yes, vote moderation still exists.

However, I have given this a lot of thought, and I want to continue exploring options, and discussing voting issues.

In the near future (perhaps even tonight) I will have a culminating discussion on vote moderation and the several discussions about it that I've held.

Thanks for the insight. I always thought vote moderation should be avoided as long as the voter points to at least the one point a debater made that swung the vote in his favor.

Nah, it's a pretty straight forward issue, that shouldn't be too contentious... I think it should be relatively drama free

If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. Unfortunately it's a bit more complex than that.

I'm sure you're right. I don't pretend to have all the answers.
