    Good morning. I am now in a position to announce the result of the recent election for members of our Moderator Team. All candidates have individually been informed of their own result, and those who were successful have confirmed their ongoing willingness to become a Moderator.

    It’s always healthy to have a good field in a poll, but it does also mean there will be some who cannot be elected this time around. Those unsuccessful on this occasion may, of course stand again in another election, and hopefully they will.

    In alphabetical order, the following candidates were successful:

    @Antje77
    @Brunneria – will now continue to a second two year term
    @Goonergal

    Those not elected, this time around are:
    @Caeseji
    @HSSS
    @Kittycat_7_
    @Knikki
    @lucylocket61

    Next steps:

    During tomorrow Pipp and Jaylee will have their Moderator status retired, and they will adopt the blue “Retired Mod” livery. At the same time, those elected will also have their status changed and begin a settling in period.

    I am sure you would join me in thanking Pipp and Jay for their efforts in the last two years and wish out new Mods well for their tenure.

    Thank you to all who stood and I hope we can enjoy your continuing support on the forum.

    Finally, apologies for the protracted nature of this year’s electoral race, but sometimes life, events and Bank Holidays get in the way! We got there in the end.

    Balanced moderators and always thought before they spoke. Those two are a huge loss.

    and welcome to the new mods :D
    and sorry to the ones who didn't get in this time, it was a strong field and I had no idea which way the forum would vote.

    Oh, I got elected! Thanks everyone for trusting I can do the stuff a moderator needs to do, I'll do my very best to live up to that :)
    I'm pretty shaken by this but in a very good way! Getting elected by people you like and respect a lot turns out to be a very effective boost to mood, thanks again!

    And thanks to retiring and sitting mods for your work, and please be patient with us newbies while we learn :)

    Thanks to the outgoing mods for all their efforts.

    Well done to the new mods, worthy winners indeed!

    I have no sense of disappointment at all to see such great members succeeding ahead of me. A huge thank you for the nomination and votes I did get, I was truly honoured to be considered.

    Well done to all the candidates who stood, but were unsuccessful this time. You would all have made great moderators.
    Congratulations to @Antje77, @Goonergal and @Brunneria on being elected.
    And many thanks to @Pipp and @Jaylee for their time and effort in moderating the forum.

    Without people willing to be Mods this forum wouldn't be the safe, helpful place it is. So congratulations, commiserations and a big, big thank you to all Mods both past and present - and to the people who were unsuccessful this time.
