There were complaints about inactivity in general, and still are. He was the only one who was active after Ornyx left.
No one is trying to “rewrite” anything. We’re stating what we saw as forum goers. Out of the list of CMs forum goers were aware of, Ysthens was the only one who could be seen on a regular (or semi-regular) basis in the forums doing anything other than posting some notice.
You like that CMs only post notifications (notices, updates, clarifications, etc.), most of the people posting in this thread preferred the time when CMs posted just to be engaging with the community when they didn’t have anything “official” to say. Ysthens was the last of the CMs that did that, whether you agree with the practice or not.
