It got moved because:
1. They are now clearly seperated from the Scratch Forums
2. They now have their own moderators to take care if it
Also, this argument isn't valid. These are the results of it being moved not the reasons.
Okay... I should have phrased it differently.
1. Moving it would clearly seperate their existence from the Scratch Forums
2. Moving it and appointing new moderators would make the Scratch moderators happier.
They could handle it - it's just that the TBG would be better off with its own dedicated moderators who were willing to moderate it.
I may not be right; I'm just saying what I remember and what seems to make sense.
Why not just get the mods they have now, and get them to moderate the TBG's that were here.
(Sorry to start up this argument again....just curious.)
(Nothing wrong with curiosity... )
As for your question, I don't know the exact answer (how would I know? ), but I think it was because the moderators were getting tired of removing words, flames, and moderating the hundreds of posts that poured into the TBG. When they held an election, people ran because they knew what they were going into and would eagerly moderate the posts.
Starfyman, the New Scratch Members forum is the best place to introduce yourself.
This sticky is old... and he's already a TBG moderator.
He has four stickies.
I only have two... I would have gotten another, but I stood up for BYOB.
About the earlier posts: Why is it no one knows anything about the TBG? Why didn't they go and see Andrés's topic that explained everything?
(The topic is here.)

Threads that are stuck to the top of the first page of a forum - they can't be buried.
Why was it opened?
Nevermind, probably because of the large number of text based game type threads that have reappeared in the miscellaneous.
This thread is a GREAT reminder to people who put games in the Misc. forum! They should know that this is MISC., not the TBGs
I didn't know why it was closed, so I reported it. Now its open. But I wonder why people still put games here.
Uh... it's hard to tell sometimes?
Oh wait, it might've been closed because of the 2 weeks limit in Miscellaneous. I don't know how it affects stickies though, let's test it out with another sticky.
I can't load the TBG o.O
It was just site lag, but I could go there on this account for some reason.
I have problems with getting there a lot as well...
Sometimes I can visit everywhere except the thread pages, and sometimes I can't even get there.
It got better, though...
I typed in the URL, then it would be ages for the loading bar to work and it didn't navigate away from the page even when the bar filled. Then I came to this thread to click the link, but I got a Page Unavailable.
However on Spades, I loaded it instantly.
