I believe most has already been said in the nomination and questionaire. Congrats to Metadaddy & LaceySnr and thank you, all of you, for the trust you give us.

    Congrats @Samuel Well deserved and I'm sure you'll do a great job! Commented Oct 13, 2014 at 1:36

First, congrats to @LaceySnr and @metadaddy for being "re-elected". I think that speaks volumes about what the community thinks of the the job the two of you have done in leading this forum from being just an idea to becoming a reality with the help of @Saariko. Also, a big congrats to to @SamuelDeRycke for earning a spot on the leadership team. As I recall, nearly everyone one of the candidates said they thought Samuel was the most deserving of the other candidates. It appears those who voted agreed with them (29% of members eligible to vote, cast votes in the election).

Congrats to all three of you and kudos to the others who "tossed their hats in the ring" and chose to put themselves out there to run against these fine candidates. In my view, you were all "winners" as there's much to be done here regardless of whether one has a black diamond beside their name or not.

I hope everyone will continue to get behind our new team of moderators as we leave the beta stage; growing and expanding as our reputation for excellence in meeting the needs of SF Developers spreads.

    Ah I phrased that badly! I meant visibility of the stats :) The Area51 stats and site stats got frozen/removed when it went live!
