Academia's third moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied and the two new moderators are:

Massimo Ortolano cag51

They'll be joining the existing crew shortly—please thank them for volunteering, and share your assistance and advice with them as they learn the ropes!

Also, please join me in thanking aeismail who will be stepping down as moderator.

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here, or view a summary report online.

    Thanks to all the participants for volunteering and congratulations to the winners. I wished this would happen in less interesting times.

Congrats to the winners, thank you to M'vy for also running and thank you aeismail for all you past work.


Sorry to see aeismail go as moderator. I hope you can still participate at a high level.

And if the two new mods continue to contribute as mods as they have as members, the site will be in good hands.
