Hey guys, I'll clarify a few things for everyone, and @Arthman can chime in when he has a chance.
First things first, although Rhododendron and I can provide input, accept or deny any promotion if we have enough reasoning, we generally allow the division leaders to make their own decisions on their division. Arthman gave reasonings to why he believes Yadingo would still be an asset as mod to the minecraft division, and wanted me to trust his decision.
If @Kypariand the other TF2 staff for example gave me reasonings for a certain person to get promoted or demoted that I personally might not approve, I would 9/10 give them the go, as I trust their judgement which is why they are in the position that they are in the first place.
@Caribou staff applications being open means they are still being considered, and I am not a factor in the case you are referring too. Minecraft will always be ran fairly different compared to CS:GO + TF2 due to the difference of responsibilities, player counts, and what constitutes helping.
Regardless, I completely understand people's frustrations, and apologize for the error in my judgement for approving it. I will just like to clarify @virr and @LeToucan told me it was a bad idea, so it was not their fault at all. I will talk to @Arthman but we will most likely demote @yadingo from moderator for the time being, as we do care about the community's opinion and I do agree it was unfair.
Once again, I appreciate you all voicing your opinion, even when you disagree with decisions higher-ups make, as it helps us improve as a community.
