Is it just me or where the old form modaturs more active then the current in-house modes? It's hard to say since I haven't seen them "drop a line" recently nor have I seen any forum valilations.

Obviously the "old" moderators were more active - they were mostly players like everyone, in contrast to the current Cyan mods, who also have other things to do and probably won't spend a lot of their free time on forum moderation.
Although I still don't quite understand why the moderation is now exclusively internal...

A lot of moderation activity goes unseen by the majority of members anyway, so not seeing any activity doesn't mean there is none ;).

We "old" (in more ways than one in many cases) moderators were recruited specifically for the MOUL forums, and mainly when these forums were a lot more active and in greater need of regular intervention than they are now. Now that the new Cyan forums exist, which have a scope that goes beyond MOUL and into other platforms like iOS, etc., it covers areas that the existing mods maybe wouldn't have the knowledge to cover effectively, so Cyan probably felt that needed to be handled in-house. Then it would maybe get a bit crazy if there were one team moderating these forums and another team moderating the Cyan forums, so it just made sense to take it all in-house.

But, yeah, rather than mods dropping in periodically through the entire US/European daytimes, they're more likely around 9-5 weekdays now.

Uh yes dgelessus's explanation makes sense.

Mac I imagine you meant "9-5 weekdays" Cyan time.
