Thank you very much everyone for putting your faith in me to help moderate this fantastic community! I am overwhelmed that so many of you voted for me, especially when there were two other very good candidates in Rory and Yochannah.
I'm currently going through the moderator toolset, just observing and trying to get a feel for everything. There's a lot :) I'm very aware of the additional authority that has been given to me and I'm being cautious to not accidentally overstep my bounds (hello, single-vote closing of questions!) :)
I have a very high standard to strive for set by the current moderators for this community. I will do my very best to live up to the expectations that you have for those of us who are not here to dictate to, but to guide this wonderful community. Because a community is made of people, and in particular we are here to help people deal with difficult situations that are impacting on their real lives. To be able to provide some small assistance, well that in itself its own reward. :)
