First of all, I'd like to apologise if I offended anybody here by asking for the second opinion about my removed answer (I really do). Usually when you go to the doctor, you've right to do so. And this post isn't aiming for it either.
I'm one of the first users during private beta who was trying to help here by keeping the beta alive and answering the questions longer than 1-2 sentences by giving the people a good example and raising the bar here (and it wasn't for rep, but by giving the chance for this site to go forward into the public beta). And now I think the bar was raised too far.
Since the beta site got into wrong hands (this is in my humble opinion and I'm not trying to offend anybody), things got worse here and into wrong direction and as result: many private beta people left (I had many vote adjustments, because of removed users), I've been banned for a week for unclear reasons by discussing quality our answers on meta (by having good intentions), my answers on which I've spent several hours got removed (for unclear reasons which we even can't discuss) and further more.
What's the point here? I was not participating here for over 4 weeks (a month)! and observing how the site is going forward. The results? It's actually going backwards.
Evidence? I'm still the most active user here! Which gives something to think about.
Who is behind? Of course the mods (who obviously won't remove their own answers for obvious reasons, because they've power to not do so)!
Which is I think the main reason why people are not participating here anymore, because they don't want to spent hours of answering something which is criticised and send to the bin anyway. The site was much active during the private beta than now.
I was thinking what we can do here to improve our site, see below:
and I don't think promotion of ads or asking who are you would help here for obvious reasons. Comparing the other SE beta sites, something definitely is wrong here and it's not about the topic that is too narrow or something similar, but simple - the site is badly managed and people are not encouraged enough.
I understand the following post is quite controversial, but I don't see any other solution for our outstanding problem here. If we won't change anything, this site would be dead very soon. And obviously we should do something unless it's too late. Seems nothing else worked so far.
So basically I'm requesting re-election of our Pro Tempore mods. I'm sorry if I can't request that. However I remember it very clearly how people behaved and how badly they wanted to become mods on chat for their own personal reasons (pleasing people to up-vote them and badly searching for down-voters), and now we have what we wanted, the deadly site.
If you don't care about the site, go on and down-vote.
P.S. One of the very few people who joined later on and is trying to help here is @michaelpri (as well as on LifeHacks, which has some activity problems as well), who's trying different methods to push the site forward (here, here and here) which I appreciate.
