  • Why doesn't tchrist's flair have the diamond while metaed's does?

Welcome to our new moderators!

Farewell to simchona and thank you for your service!

And finally, a big thank you to all the candidates. It is a scary thing to put yourself out there like that and you did it! We had a lot of good choices this election and I hope you will consider running again in a future election.

    Upvoted; but I thought I'd add my name explicitly to this.

    @AndrewLeach Show the crew off, add your name!! Although it would be more preferable to add it as an answer instead.

Let me congratulate you guys. We had so many good candidates and, not surprisingly, you made it in what was a keen competition. You're both great contributors and have been around long enough for us to feel sure that your attitudes as moderators will always be tempered with reason and tolerance. Good luck.
