Moderator election #2 on Politics — your "graduation" election! — has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the new moderators are:

CDJB

JJJ

ohwilleke

Philipp

They will be replacing the "old" pro-tem crew as "regular" mods shortly (though most of them were that "old" crew anyway) — please thank them for volunteering, both for running in this election and for their time spent during the site's beta!

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here or view a summary report online.

Holy shit! I was sure somebody else would win. Bugger me.

Oh well. I'll try to figure out how to do this in the next little bit.

Thanks so much for volunteering and for running in this election folks!

    I'm quite happy with my honorable 5th place that is well-deserved for running to fill the numbers with negligible participation. Congratulations 👍 Oct 11, 2022 at 20:53

Thanks so much to everyone who took part, especially everyone who contributed questions to the candidates or who put themselves out there and nominated themselves! I’m very glad that the community was happy enough with the existing mod team to re-elect us all :D

Congratulations especially to ohwilleke, I’m looking forward to working with you. Enjoy all the shiny new buttons!

Thanks everyone for participating in the election by voting or even running as a candidate! I'm grateful for the renewed confidence in myself and the others on the pro-tem team.

I'm happy to welcome ohwilleke to the team and I'm sure we'll have a good time moderating the site. :)

Thank you for showing us moderators your continuous trust and support by reelecting all three of us pro-tempore moderators.

And welcome to the team, ohwilleke.

Welcome aboard (and back)! I've always felt this site was extremely well moderated and deserving of losing its Beta badge. Well earned and congrats on now being fully 'elected' moderators.

I want to take the opportunity to congratulate everyone, winners and and others that didn't get selected as mods in this election. Those that didn't get selected, please don't feel bad. We are here as a community. Everyone's voice is heard, whatever you feel wrong just say it.

And next time please participate. :)

Your participation made it a better election, please know it.

    I wouldn't expect there to be another election until someone steps down or they decide we need more moderators.

    Just trying to help ensure expectations are correct as elections are done on an as needed basis not on a schedule.

I would imagine that this has to be one of if not the most difficult stack to moderate.

I know I've had my differences with some of you in the past on meta but hopefully with the understanding that it's a difficult volunteer position. I'm continuously grateful for the work you do, all of you, and thanks so much and congratulations!
