Recently (not very recently but a couple of months ago) there was a change in room ownership in Hinduism chat room. A couple of old owners were removed from the list of Room owners. After a week or two of this removal happened, a new room owner was added.
There was no reason given for the removal of room owners. When I pinged the moderators for giving a reason at least about informing that there were changes in the chat room owner's list, there was no response. The message from the Feeds which make the users aware of the changes to the room was deleted immediately by a moderator (I don't know which moderator it is). So, I was clueless that I am removed as room owner. I came to know that I am no longer a room owner looking at my name. Generally, name of the room owner is in italic and normal user name looks without italic font. When I pinged moderators, there was no reply regarding this. Only thing a moderator said was about a comment on meta which he edited saying I was mocking without explaining why and how it is related to chat room moderation or without explaining why it is mocking of users. But I believe that is not related to chat room matters. I don't recall any drama or abusing happening in the chat room while I was present in the room.
If you ask why now and not immediately, I had other reasons to go inactive on meta. I didn't had time to post. Similar issue happened about the removal of a moderator without notice somewhere in the network and there is discussion going on many meta sites including Meta Stack Exchange. I was reminded of this issue.
If you ask why to post on meta when it is a chat room matter?
Why not? This happened on our site at some point. We can post issues if it still persists.
It is main chat room created by default. Since chat room is also a part of the site, I believe this discussion belongs on meta.
There was no proper reply from moderators regarding this issue in chat rooms.
Only room for moderation issues is frozen and all the moderators were not active in that chat room.
Even if they are active, chat is not a correct place to post discussions. Meta is the default space for discussions about site.
For increasing transparency in moderator's actions. If moderators are answering and being accountable for their actions, it is good for the community and more users will know. The discussion reaches wider audience.
So the questions I have in mind are these:
What were the reasons for the moderators to make changes in the list of room owners?
What wrong happened in the chat room moderation to take a sudden decision without notice?
Is it fair to remove a room owner without informing or a pinging the reason why the change happened? Also is it fair to delete the feeds message which says there is a change to the room?
Why was the message deleted?
Note: Since this issue was dealt by moderator(s), I expect only them to write an answer.
