Aaron and PolyGeo, congratulations and welcome to the moderator team!

Thank you for picking up this role, even as I leave the fold. Moderating can be work, annoying at times, but worth the effort. Whenever you find yourself in doubt, step back and survey the extent and value of the growing body of great questions and answers found here, and enjoy the part you're playing in bringing that to fruition.

  • Thanks Matt - my other mod experience is on a relatively quiet Beta site so I am looking forward to the challenge of resolving a larger variety of scenarios - your efforts as mod and contributor here are greatly appreciated.
