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.
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!
