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

theforestecologist Bryan Krause

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 WYSIWYG who will be stepping down as moderator.

    $\begingroup$ Thanks, all! Glad to be aboard :). And thanks to the other candidates (TanMath, L.B. S Pr, and De Novo) for your dedication and willingness to run in this election. I know the community appreciates your continued involvement -- and we need as many folks as possible to help moderate this site! So your efforts are much appreciated! I'm sure Bryan would echo me in saying I'm looking forward to this new role and hope we can serve the community well. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 5, 2019 at 22:22

Congratulations to both new moderators, thanks for joining the mods.

I would also like to thank WYSIWIG for being a mod since this site graduated and also for his effort to achieve graduation. I hope you will still join us, despite of time restraints.

    $\begingroup$ @WYSIWYG Be careful. Or the new mods need to suspend you :-) $\endgroup$
