    @muru: I have a template that's suited for multiple moderators. Looks like I didn't proofread my modifications very well this time. (And maybe I ought to just break down and save a copy of the single-moderator template. I've been hoping to get this automated.)-: Feb 18 '17 at 18:33
  • @JoeStrazzere thanks for the fix. (Editing on a phone is challenging; was hoping somebody would make the fix.) Feb 21 '17 at 2:53

Congratulations Lilienthal! Much deserved!


Congratulations Lilienthal, and well done everyone!! All the candidates were of a high quality and any one of them would have made an excellent addition to the moderator team. Lilienthal is a trusted and effective member of the community, and I feel he will be a great asset to the community in his new role of Workplace Moderator.

Congratulations again, and welcome to the Moderator team! :)

    I seem to believe Lilienthal is a woman. Not sure though, he/she has never stated it explicitly.

    No doubt Lilienthal can clarify, if they so wish :)

    @MaskedMan I have indeed avoided specifying so far but since you ask, "he" is correct. :)
