    \$\begingroup\$ Don't forget to swing by Martin's house to get your barcode tattoo. I know, I know... they didn't tell me about it until I'd agreed either. \$\endgroup\$ – Geobits Feb 9 '17 at 3:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Geobits Mine says 47... I think everyone should be concerned. \$\endgroup\$ – user45941 Feb 9 '17 at 5:23
  • \$\begingroup\$ Actually I don't think it was effective immediately. I think that, once the votes were locked, the owners should have been instantaneously appointed. Was there any reason to not immediately appoint them? \$\endgroup\$ – Erik the Outgolfer Feb 9 '17 at 10:41

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer From the election post: At the end of the election, the three candidates with the highest scores (upvotes minus downvotes) will be submitted to the moderators and current room owners for approval and instatement as new room owners. It took time for all of the moderators and then-current room owners to see and approve the selections. \$\endgroup\$ – user45941 Feb 9 '17 at 12:02
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mego What questioned me is how much it took everyone to approve the candidates. \$\endgroup\$ – Erik the Outgolfer Feb 9 '17 at 12:17

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer It took less than 24 hours. That's actually a bit surprising, considering how many different timezones the moderators and then-current room owners occupy, and how they are frequently very busy. \$\endgroup\$ – user45941 Feb 9 '17 at 12:19

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer effective immediately refers to the annoncement, not the election results. \$\endgroup\$ – Dennis Feb 10 '17 at 7:17
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Dennis I know, I was referring to the delay before this announcement was posted though. I don't know the exact reason there needs to be approval though, since the community has already voted. Please reply in chat. \$\endgroup\$ – Erik the Outgolfer Feb 10 '17 at 12:36

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer Because a federal republic is the best kind of government. :P \$\endgroup\$ – Poke Feb 10 '17 at 14:21

It's an honor to be chosen by the community to be a room owner of The Nineteenth Byte. I've had many good experiences in TNB, and I hope to help others have good experiences as well.
