As the title states.

I was actually thinking whether or not to reply here, but before nobody does, let me try and give a diplomatic and honest answer. Notwithstanding the discussion whether removing you (and the other former "pink Moderators" for that matter) was fair or not, try seeing it from this perspective.

The Forum of today is somewhat different than the Forum at the time when you were posting regularly. There are new people, content-wise it is different, and there are even some visual changes as well. The people you were friends/chatting with are no longer there. The person who appointed you to Moderator isn't active anymore on this Forum either (though I suppose he still reads up on topics from time to time, without logging in). The troubleshooting discussions are mostly centered on The Sims 4 these days, though new games may be coming in the future. It's almost like in one of these trashy movies: you fall asleep, say, in 1957, and wake up again 60 years later in 2017.

If I were in your position I wouldn't bother, because I would feel like I've lost touch completely. Now, if we were to re-instate you as pink Moderator, what would you do then? What exactly would you expect from this? Would you feel happier? Blunt and unpleasant questions for sure, but then again. 

You may feel entirely different about the issue, and please don't take the previous paragraphs as any sort of discouragement from my part. As far as I myself am concerned, you are more than welcome to contribute to the Forum as a regular user. Maybe you can even receive limited mod powers for the moment, a.k.a. Quartermaster II or III. But whether or not there should be a reinstatement of you & the other former pinks, that should be answered by ~Ann~ (Lady ElDi). The main reason the group was dissolved is because of longterm inactivity. 

By the way, what I just said goes for @Sim Architect and all other former pink Moderators too.

Edit: I did not vote in either your thread here or in Sim Architect's, because the question should rather be whether you really want to deal with this. From my end, I can "only" be as supportive as possible to new-comers, as I typically do. But still, the question of whether to return or not can only be answered, by the person asking this question in the first place.

What about the position of Tarac ?
The above does not apply to him as far as I can see.

Everybody can rest assured: if there is "something" to revisit (forum status, permissions, etc.), then someone will get in touch with you, not earlier.

And if I see one more of these other former members opening a poll here asking whether they should come back, they will be met with trashy 1990s music. To make a start here:

Presumably that "someone" will be YOU, as there are not many other Admins and/or mods active on this forum

Note to cuddly Polarbear (and everybody else): I do not make any decisions here whatsoever. I merely make suggestions, and then communicate those policies to the various people. What I am trying to say is, ~Ann~ will get in touch with you if need be. Can we leave the discussion at that? 

And your music:





P.S. why are you posting on behalf of a user who has been banned after many rule violations, and who does not take any advice from the Moderators  Question  Question
