    Congratulations to MaskedMan and Snow. I have had the pleasure of interacting with the former, but I have faith in your talents. Remember the words of Uncle Ben, "With great power comes great responsibility". Wishing you a satisfying time here. :) May 30, 2018 at 9:19
  • Interesting that the "surplus votes" stage has been reached. It was a rather tight election.

    No problem @MonicaCellio :) like Snow said, we had some excellent candidates, so TWP was bound to win regardless.

    Thank you sir! I am still shocked as to how things turned out this way. :) It will take me a couple of days to get over the shock and rise up to the challenge.

Having recovered a bit from the shocking result, I am here to express my gratitude. I am grateful to the community for tolerating supporting me until now, and now electing me as a moderator.

This is flattering beyond my expectations. I thought I could walk away from this election with my head held high if I could get 10 third choice votes. The community clearly sees me a little better than that, which brings back memories of the first question I asked here.

I have always usually tried being helpful as a "regular" user, and I will use my new position to serve the community even better.

Congratulations to Snow, you truly deserve the promotion!
