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.

    It is sad that in a few months two valuable people have stopped being moderators. My best wishes to them. – user243301 Aug 14 at 21:58

    @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. – Jon Ericson Aug 14 at 22:44

    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. – user334732 Aug 15 at 16:44
  • Mariano, thanks so much for your service! – Ben Blum-Smith Aug 19 at 2:45
  • 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. – user243301 Oct 27 at 10:34

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

Congratulations guys. It's awesome to see you working. Thanks to the outgoing moderator

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