    \$\begingroup\$ Just by curiosity, how many users actually voted? I ask because I only got notified when nomination started and not when primaries and election took place. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Russell was elected during 1st round. Voltage Spike during 2nd round. They actually got close to each other, while all others didn't. It's a clear victory for both. Congratulations! (txt) \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ One interesting thing is that, judging on voting results, the community can roughly be divided into people who tend towards a stricter moderation attitude and those who prefer a more relaxed moderation attitude (among other things). The mods who have just been elected will balance out each other in this regard IMO. Nice! \$\endgroup\$ Jun 3, 2020 at 12:12

  • \$\begingroup\$ I am encouraged by the fact that election-over-election, participation has increased significantly. This site is holding its own, which is great - I seem to recall that we were a little shy on a few metrics when we were promoted out of Area51 and made a full site. Best wishes to the new mods! \$\endgroup\$ Jun 3, 2020 at 12:25
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Andyaka They'll serve as examples when it comes to communication. Don't think they'll bring back the mistakes that were made in the past, at least not without goodwill and a lot of open discussion. They'll be alright :) \$\endgroup\$ Jun 3, 2020 at 12:32
  • \$\begingroup\$ Congratulations guys! \$\endgroup\$
