[–] Typo 1 points 8 points (+9|-1) ago 

Blah accidentally deleted his account when trying to delete his subverses. The admins were messaged and while we waited for a response, he made a new account. Since we didn't get one in the morning and didn't want to be short a mod, his new account, shiningstar was modded. We didn't say anything because we didn't want to seem impatient. The CSS name change was to mitigate confusion about the new name. If we were told that he couldn't get his new account back, we would have made an announcement and then had blah's new account step down or leave the new name visible.

Do you know what sticky posts are for Typo? Or do you think the people browsing /v/news too stupid to understand a change in accounts?

You chose the wrong action; you chose to try to deceive and manipulate the users, regardless of your intention, your actions were wrong.

[We] didn't want to be short a mod ... we didn't say anything because we didn't want to seem impatient.

Do you see the incompatibility of your statement? You were being impatient by not wanting to be short a mod and by giving moderation powers back to this user. You were being naive to assume hiding your actions will help fix your problem. You were extremely rude in treating your users like people incapable of understanding a simple change. The moderation teams delay and dodging of issues in the Sticky thread stinks of ineptitude and a lack of willingness to engage with your user base.

Who made the change and under who's authority Typo?

Since you're answering questions in here, when can we expect an announcement confirming that you will not delete comments or ban users over Rule # 1?
