@Mod-Degrassi we love you 😘.
I think the thing is although it's nice to hear the (some?) mods are around behind the scenes, isn't part of the reason they are given modly status because they were active and well-liked members in the first place? So missing the mods isn't just about missing the Mods - it's about missing their contribution to threads as well.
And since we're sort of on the topic, and I've said this before, I always feel a bit sad/frustrated when DIGs leave to meet elsewhere. Especially those members who are active in other threads - it's like, ok, so I don't get to talk to those people ever now? I get that DIGs form a special bond, but I miss them too!
