I'm stepping down as a moderator.
StackExchange has developed too many systemic problems.
I don't think that putting time into StackExchange is the right thing for me to do.

    \$\begingroup\$ As a SE member first, and mainly incidentally as a new moderator second, I'd be very interested in hearing anything you are willing to say about the issues which have affected your desire to continue as moderator. Public or private comment is welcome. (My email address is in my profile). || I became a moderator in large part to help newcomers gain a foothold and to hopefully help improve answer Q&A quality by addressing areas perhaps less addressed by many. I'm finding a fair bit of time is taken in activity akin to "herding adult cats" :-) :-(. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Hi Nick, may I ask if this is you? Do you plan participate here or at Codidact (as a user)? \$\endgroup\$ Oct 19, 2020 at 8:26

    \$\begingroup\$ @Dmitry Yes, that's me. I don't plan to answer questions on SE. I might answer questions on Codidact. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 19, 2020 at 21:12

    \$\begingroup\$ Bravo for holding the fort as long as you have. Systemic SE issues were the ultimate reason I didn't want to run in the last mod election. See you on the other site, hopefully. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 21, 2020 at 16:40
  • \$\begingroup\$ From me - another very sincere thanks for your time and effort here, Nick. \$\endgroup\$
