  • \$\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\$ Feb 9, 2017 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\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mego What questioned me is how much it took everyone to approve the candidates. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 9, 2017 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\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @EriktheOutgolfer effective immediately refers to the annoncement, not the election results. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\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\$ Feb 10, 2017 at 12:36

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.
