Please give them a warm welcome, and hearty thanks and congratulations for volunteering!

Also, a sincere thank you to the rest of our Moderators Pro Tempore, who (along with msh210) helped shepherd the site through its beta:

    Wait, is Isaac no longer a mod? I assumed he'd retain his status as the founder. – Seth J Jul 25 '12 at 3:00

    I suspect he'd have been a shoo-in if he had run. But, he opted not to. Frankly, I don't blame him if he wants to just enjoy using the site for a bit - he's certainly paid his dues! (Ref: chat.stackexchange.com/transcript/message/5391647#5391647) @Seth – Shog9 Jul 25 '12 at 3:21

    @shog9, thanks. I missed that. I figured Isaac was exempt and would retain mod privileges. If he'd run I would certainly have voted for him, but I think he knows that virtually everyone would have. – Seth J Jul 25 '12 at 3:29
  • Mazel Tov and best wishes for the future! – Avrohom Yitzchok Jul 25 '12 at 15:13

    @IsaacMoses Yes. – Double AA Jul 25 '12 at 15:32
  • Open question: how do we feel about having received "68 non-empty ballots"? – Avrohom Yitzchok Jul 26 '12 at 9:00
