As far as strict policies go, yes. As far as discussion, points of contention, or even general guidelines go, I wouldn’t say that. I feel like it’s too dismissive and simple to say that older admins’ opinions don’t matter just because they left (i mean, my opinion is still vaguely relevant… right guys? …guys? ;_;). They’ve dedicated way too much to this site, particularly Chrismen who was at the beginning shaping the site’s direction, to cease be credible sources of insight anymore.
Nevertheless, iirc (please correct me if I’m wrong), ChrisMen actually would support what we then called IRL memes, and also what we include now. His opinion has evolved over time, like all the moderators who have been on this website for an extended period of time, particularly after Don and Brad took over, and a little before too.
Edit: Actually, come to think of it, when I wrote this up, I remember being against so-called IRL memes. It was either Jamie or Chris Menning who suggested I be careful about excluding all IRL memes (particularly ones from movies/art/media, since he argued they weren’t really “IRL” either). I’m 85% it was Chris Menning though. At the very least, he was for a lot more flexibility, and in light of the increasing blurriness of an internet/real life distinction, I think he would support what KYM does now.
