Thanks to everyone who voted for me and also for the congratulatory messages. Also well done to the other candidates, it was a good field and the tightness of the main group showed that!

I look forward to the job and hopefully I’m up to the task of handling the void of flags I’ve left behind. For now though it’s party time according to Stella:

Congratulations TLC! Welcome to the madhouse ;-)

Commiserations to all the other nominees. It was a very strong field, and very difficult to choose a "best" candidate. I'm not surprised at the result, but we had so many excellent people in this election. Thanks to all of you for everything you have done and continue to do for the site, and (maybe) better luck next time!

As well as having an extra pair of hands to handle flags, I think the number of flags we get per time-period will now decrease quite a bit ...

    Big brain move... I volunteer to create flag worthy content for you to handle :-P

Congratulations! I think that no one has done more with the user moderation system than TheLethalCarrot, so this is a well-deserved position.

I wish them luck, and I know they will continue to contribute to the site, and will be able to take their contributions to the next level.


Time for some Tender Loving Care The Lethal Carrot!

Congrats my man! We know we're in good hands :)


You've been an excellent contributor and I was surprised that you weren't a moderator. When I saw that there was an election, I voted for you. Congratulations and welcome to the moderation team!
