As some of you may have read, ire_and_curses has stepped down from their position as Pro Tem moderator. Since we still don't have an estimate for when this site will be fully graduated and able to host its first elections, a replacement for the position left open was in order. Let's all thank ire_and_curses for the time (over 5 years!) and effort they've put into this community!
And I am pleased to announce that Jefromi has stepped up and generously volunteered their time to help us assure that each community’s issues are properly addressed, and to continue to help the site grow into a huge success.
Please welcome Jefromi for the hard work and time they contribute.

Did I overlook anyone?
Almost certainly. There are members who are actively involved and very deserving of recognition. My failure to account for everyone is in no way a slight against them. Ideally, Moderators are elected by the community and that's why there'll be elections once the site has graduated.
Most of all, be respectful and understanding of the Moderators Pro Tem. Members of your community are volunteering their time and learning on the job. It’s a learning experience for everyone.
