I know I am no longer a mod but in my time, which was actually the beginning of this year, we would move the hits after 2 weeks if no reply came. Well I would because out of respect for the players involved. But that works too. Waiting.
i know in my time, years as admin and even more years in other roles on team, that you always wait for the OP to req thread be moved. as far as i know its always been that way.
all threads should be treated the same regardless who made the hit. its not about respect, its about the process.
but yes, its a good hit. neo has been around for a long time and has made many many many top 10s. everyone falls at some point and it dosnt really mean anything. new server for new beginings.
