Mathematics's seventh moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the 2 new moderators are:

Asaf Karagila Aloizio Macedo

They'll be joining the existing crew shortly — please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes!

Please join me in thanking Mariano Suárez-Álvarez who is stepping down as a moderator.

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

    $\begingroup$ @user243301: On the positive side, Math has a very strong bench of moderator candidates. It's a real benefit that good moderators can take a break before they get burnt out. $\endgroup$ – Jon Ericson Aug 14 '18 at 22:44

    $\begingroup$ Thank-you for volunteering guys. If at some point it feels like a thankless task, please take heart from remembering how sincerely grateful we all are even though we probably don't say so often enough. $\endgroup$ – user334732 Aug 15 '18 at 16:44
  • $\begingroup$ Mariano, thanks so much for your service! $\endgroup$ – Ben Blum-Smith Aug 19 '18 at 2:45
  • $\begingroup$ Again, it is sad that in a few months valuable people have stopped being moderators. My thought/belief is that this site MSE has problems that have to be solved. $\endgroup$ – user243301 Oct 27 '18 at 10:34

  • $\begingroup$ Hi, @user243301. I'm sorry you feel that way but it's hard to know how repeating your comment helps. $\endgroup$ – Jon Ericson Nov 7 '18 at 1:18

    $\begingroup$ @TobyMak Why the negativity? I think 26 people agree with the answer. Don't you? $\endgroup$ – 6005 Aug 21 '18 at 1:48
