Well, our recent moderator election is finally over!
It was a rather long process, and one which I believe many of us were worried would end without any nominees at all! :o First things first, I think we need to offer a round of applause to the runner up, MikeW. He had the guts and bravery to step up to the plate after several days of eerie quiet. If it wasn't for him, our race may never have gotten off the ground! So thank you, Mike! It takes a certain amount of dedication to freely offer up some of your personal time to a community like PhotoSE, and we're all appreciative. :)
Next up, its time to congratulate the winner of our election, and our new community servant, rfusca! King of the chatroom, the man who is always there to greet you when you enter, help you when you have a question, offer quality chat and banter any time of the day (or night, as is often the case) and salute you when you sign off, he is an incredibly valued member of our community. He's been here since the beginning, and has participated in both the main site and meta extensively. He has his hands quite full with a growing family, and its most generous for him to offer more time to our community as our fourth moderator. We are grateful for your dedication, and welcome your assistance in managing our growing forum.
