I recently asked SE to reinstate me as a moderator here on Skeptics and the request was approved. I was one of the original pro-tem moderators when the site was created and became an elected moderator in the first election after we graduated. I stepped down in January 2020.
Just in case you were wondering who that strange new diamond moderator was that recently appeared on the site. There is no conspiracy here, just a plain old reinstatement ;-).
