I have been running one of my boards for almost seven years now. Over that time my moderator team has changed more than once. In some cases, it’s because the person no longer has an interest in the subject matter and asks to be removed from the team. In other cases, a life event (health or family issue) forces them to choose between spending time online and some other activity. In some cases the moderator just stops moderating. What should be done in that case? And how can you determine that a moderator has, in fact, stopped moderating?
