It's only been a few months since the last election and the moderators elected there hit the ground running, helping keep this site going strong.

Willie and Zev recently told us that they'd like to take a bit of a break. Moderation has always been a strictly voluntary activity, so while they're taking a much deserved vacation, we're appointing the next two people chosen by you during the election to help share the workload:

robjohn mixedmath

Please give them a warm welcome and be patient as they learn the ropes and come up to speed.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome! Does this mean that Willie and Zev will remain moderator and they can resume their (very welcome) duties if they please? $\endgroup$ – Jonas Teuwen Aug 7 '12 at 21:01

    $\begingroup$ @JonasTeuwen Barring them being absent for a really long time (think 6+ months), they're always welcome to return and resume their moderation duties. $\endgroup$ – Adam Lear Aug 7 '12 at 21:18
