Over a week ago, the Health.SE site lost two moderators, Susan and anongoodnurse, in quick succession (the same or subsequent days). As far as I can see this was never announced anywhere on Meta and only brought up in chat by other people who noticed that the moderation team had changed. When bringing up the lack of communication, I was assured that there would be more information, and that the CM team would be keeping an eye on Health.SE.
Well, it's been a week, and with the holidays around the corner it seems like either I ask now and probably get a "we are still working this out" answer or ask next week and get a "we are on holidays" answer. I'll take my chances with the former. I also think this should be public, so I am asking here instead of contacting the Community Managers.
- Obviously without going into anything that shouldn't be announced publicly, why was this major change (that's 50 percent of the moderator team, after all) not communicated on Meta?
- What's the current plan to proceed? How will this effect the site?
