Announcing CC's new moderators

After a week of voting, we have two new moderators for CC:

They will be joining the existing moderators on Monday. We’ll be working together to show them the ropes next week.

Please join me in thanking all of our candidates for volunteering. I know it wasn’t an easy choice because of the quality of the people who were running. Thankfully this isn’t the last opportunity. Our plan is to open up new moderator slots at least once a year.

Thank you to the 118 voters for participating in the process.

Congrats to both of them, and the other two, who already have my votes for the next election.

Kudos to you too, Jon, for making us all feel a part of this.

@CC_Jon:

Can I suggest you make the new SuperMod training module “Anecdote is Not the Plural of Data 101” available to the wider CC community? It will save us all a lot of time.

:rofl:

Seriously, new mods, I am a huge fan of the moderation on this site. Keeping things focused is the real value-add that CC has over competitors. It’s why I keep coming back here.

Some off the frequent participants on the political forum are alleging there was rampant election corruption, disputed hanging “chads” and Russian collusion😃

Regardless, congratulations to all four participants who are clearly and deservedly highly respected and appreciated! Congratulations!

OK, I bit my tongue for 12 hours, but I cannot resist any longer.

For the benefit of our younger readers, most of whom probably were ineligible to vote in this election, The Mod Squad was a TV show in the late 60’s / early 70’s starring Rashida Jones’ mother.

To tie into College Confidential, Rashida Jones graduated from Harvard. While undoubtedly academically qualified, she was also hooked as the child of 2 celebrities and as a URM. :grin:

Peggy Lipton and Quincy Jones.

@MWolf, this is a perfect example of taking the thread off-tangent. We expect a warning and then a quick deletion of further similar posts come Monday. (Said entirely in jest of course! :smiley: )
