Nahh, that's actually pretty rare, though you're definitely "old school" and well before I became a member of ATS, let alone joined the staff
Out of curiosity, I took a look around the staff forums "back in the day", and there are plenty of posts by former mods there who are still very
much members in good standing. I didn't count them all, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are more ex-mods than mods among the membership today.
As in your case, far and away the most common reason mods leave the staff is due to time constraints or other interests.
At present, there are 71 accounts with moderator status, as well as 8 admin accounts. Though a few of them are utility or "emeritus" accounts, and
many of us have to balance our ATS staff duties against our "real life" responsibilities (which must always come first), I don't think most members
can truly appreciate how much of a mob scene it can be behind the "Cosmic curtain".
To everyone, past or present, who has given so generously of your time and effort on behalf of ATS, thank you for your service.
We stand on the shoulders of giants.
