    "Exhausted" seems to have done pretty well by the end, even despite the name! I think future candidates ought to watch out for them next time and maybe consider what they're bringing to the election platform. :-p – tu-Reinstate Monica-dor duh Jun 22 '16 at 3:08
  • And of course, Congrats! :-) – tu-Reinstate Monica-dor duh Jun 22 '16 at 3:08

    Congratulations to the new moderators and also to all of those who did not win. It was a pleasure to compete with you in this election. For those who are interested, I evaluated the voting data and uploaded the OpenSTV results to my GitHub website. You can view the detailed election results here! – Byte Commander Jun 22 '16 at 11:13

    What strikes me is that only about 8 percent of the eligible voters actually has cast a vote. Is the involvement of the users really that low? By all means moderators are the people that keep the site running in a certain sense, so this election is important to participate in. Congratulations to the new moderators. – wie5Ooma Jun 22 '16 at 14:43
