Quantitative Finance's first moderator election has come to a close, the votes have been tallied, and the 3 new moderators are:

Bob Jansen SRKX olaker

Since this is the same group as current pro tempore moderators, you won't notice much of a change. However, please join me in thanking all of the beta moderators for their time and commitment!

For details on how the voting played out, you can download the election results here, or view a summary report online.

Congrats to olaker, SKRX and Bob Jansen for being elected. You guys deserved it. Also props to lehalle, if there were 4 slots, I'd have felt he was deeply qualified for the role.

Thanks to everyone who voted for me and our campaign pledge. You are the ones whom this community needs the most, and I hope you can invest the same trust and support in our re-elected moderators.
