Why was Swampert made into an Editor?

Sure he isn't active, but he earned that long ago. It doesn't deserve to be taken away.

Agreed. He'll come back someday...
There's also the whole " He earned it, at least let him keep the title to show that he worked hard and achieved it. " portion.
Yeah, that is the main thing Josh.
He was one of the original legendary Mod trio.
What level were they caught at? :P
Level 1 trillion and 4 (O.o)

I understand what you are saying, but here is my reasoning:

  • Moderator isn't a "status" exactly, it's a function. Swampert isn't around much so isn't using that function.
  • I am maybe slightly paranoid about security and just don't see the need to have someone as a moderator if they are not doing any moderating. He is rarely (if ever) on at a time when no other mods are on.
  • Swampert still has his points and Editor function to show his "status".
  • I don't suppose he is bothered if new people on the site know of his status. The important and long-standing people here know it, he doesn't need a bit of text in his profile saying that.
