I like to think that Stack Exchange as a whole is fairly transparent in their processes, and that because of this the communities are trusting of decisions that are made. One thing that happened last week on Space.SE last week though was the editing of this post where one mod has been replaced with another.
I realise that it may be different on a beta site with unelected mods, but on other sites such a change would result in an announcment much like this recent one on Stack Overflow. Instead, the change in mods here on Space was done in an edit announcing the pro tem mods rather than the usual thanking of (now-ex) mod for their work and welcoming a new one to take their place.
Can I ask on behalf of the community for the sake of transparency why the change was made in this way, and also why a change at all?
