I'm happy to say, we've found two excellent choices:
Both long-term users of the site have shown nothing but patience, fairness and a desire to help newcomers to the Parenting SE community. They've been doing the job of a moderator for a while, we think it's about time we gave them diamonds so that they can do it more effectively. Already excited to work together, they step up to their posts today.
A special thanks from us to everyone that stepped up and offered to help. We hope to be looking forward to democratic moderator elections in the not too distant future, you'd all do well to nominate yourselves at that time, I'm sure all of you would do an excellent job.
Please give Balanced Mama and Karl a warm welcome as they step into their new roles!
