    I, too, look forward to working with Matt and Ian. But to the other candidates, please know that you received many votes, too: it was a remarkably close contest. I wish to extend my deep appreciation for your efforts--especially those of you who answered all the questions!--and want you to know that I will be grateful for your ongoing contributions to our site and your help in moderating it by means of the privileges earned by your high reputations, whether or not you have a "diamond." Through your activities as reviewers and on the meta site, you have shown your worthiness to be moderators. – whuber Apr 30 '13 at 21:41

    Congratulations to Matt and Ian, and commisserations to @NathanW who went down narrowly in a great fight. Thanks also to those who helped conduct the election and the other candidates. It was the first election I had contested since going for Moonta High School Captain a few years back and it was exciting to participate! – PolyGeo Apr 30 '13 at 23:19

    Looks like @iant is still on vacation and hasn't visited the site for about a week. He likely doesn't know he's a moderator. That will be a good surprise for him. – Fezter May 2 '13 at 6:04

Thank you everyone who voted, regardless of who your choices were. I'll constantly endeavour to be worthy of your confidence in me in this role. I for one was pleased with the selections available and would have been happy with other outcomes, enough so I didn't even vote for myself ;-)

Ian, Bill, Mapperz and Anita : I look forward to working together with you in the coming year as we continue to shepherd our little community along.
