Looks like the election is over ! I tried downloading the recommended software and figuring out the results, but it had so many options and flags that it confused me, so I have no idea. Do we know when the results will be announced and the new moderators will be "crowned" ?

  • $\begingroup$ @Suresh, It seems that you will be the king. Congratulations in advance :) $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 21:30
  • $\begingroup$ eh, ok. I guess. but did you see something official ? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 21:45
  • $\begingroup$ I have an unofficial result which I obtained by using a different program votesystem.sourceforge.net which also uses the Meek STV, but I would like to wait for the official announcement. It will not take long, hopefully? $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 21:51
  • $\begingroup$ it is the weekend, so I imagine it might take till Monday to set the mod bits on the winners. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 21:54
  • $\begingroup$ That is a good point. Should I post the unofficial result here? I am reluctant to do so because the real result may be different for various reasons (different options in counting, my misunderstanding of the ballot file format, my misunderstanding of how to use the program, bugs in either program, etc.). $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 21:56
  • $\begingroup$ that's exactly why I didn't post it either. let's just wait for the official word. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 22:06
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, I will wait. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 5, 2011 at 22:07

The result is available on the election page. Congratulations, Suresh, Kaveh and Dave!

Update: The three elected candidates have become moderators. Congratulations again. Hope you will enjoy the duty. :) Also, let me thank to Ryan Williams for serving us as one of the first two moderators, and Sadeq Dousti, Hsien-Chih Chang (張顯之), Neel Krishnaswami, Aaron Sterling and Lev Reyzin for volunteering themselves as moderator candidates.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I hope that I will make a good moderator, and that you two will get over +10K soon and gain access to mod tools, that would make the life easier for us. :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Nice post Tsuyoshi. You'll make a great mod. I hope you have more free time in the next election, and you nominate yourself too. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 6, 2011 at 21:10
