I just want to take a moment to say
Yes you! Thank you specifically. If you're reading this, I thank you.
I'm absolutely honored to be a moderator for this wonderful, quirky community and I'll do everything I can to serve it. PPCG is a very special place. Thank you all so much for your kindness and support, it means more to me than you can imagine.
As an aside, in case you're feeling duped, like information had been withheld from you, I didn't know about this until last Friday. Stack Exchange contacted me and asked if I'd like to be a mod for PPCG, which thoroughly confused me given that Dennis won our informal election by popular vote, but here we are on Monday and Dennis and I both have diamonds. A special thank you to the Stack Exchange team.
