Frostblade, as far as I can summise the inner thoughts of the moderating team, was chosen because of his participation in the forums; his posts were informative and helpful, and he demonstrated through his activities the qualities for which people are given responsibilities. It's a shame when people like that disappear - he was gone by the time I returned to the forums, so I'm not sure what prompted him to leave (guess: life).
Thanks for the explanation.
I don't really know if the other moderators needed time off or some extra help, they probably just felt that GI&D would benefit from having certain standards and qualities practiced and that Frostblade was demonstrating beneficial attitudes in need of encouragement. Presumably, people have tried to follow the sort of standards which he helped set. Maybe the time has come to renew the ways which he presented to the forums. Maybe Takagi needs extra help.
.. by the way, who did he replace?
I suppose it could be interesting to see someone taking a firm lead.
