Welcome New Super User Moderators

by Jeff Atwood

on January 19, 2010

We've appointed two new Super User moderators from the meta voting thread.

Welcome Ivo and Troggy as our newest Super User community moderators!

This also means that two existing Super User moderators, originally appointed in August 2009, will be retiring.

TheTXI indicated to us via email that he no longer will be able to return to the Trilogy in any useful capacity. Serving as community moderator is completely voluntary; we understand that sometime life gets in the way of such things. Doug, we'll still be here if you ever come up for air, and you're always welcome back with pony-loving arms.

Splattne was unusual in that he was a moderator across two sites -- Server Fault and Super User. I was always a little uncomfortable asking Stefan to pull double duty. Because he's a mensch, of course he agreed, but I'm glad we can refocus so he doesn't have as much on his plate. He will of course continue to be a moderator on Server Fault, and Server Fault will hopefully benefit from the increased attention.

As always, I recommend that new moderators (or anyone interested in the topic) read through A Theory of Moderation.

And don't forget we're still accepting nominations for a new Stack Overflow moderator as well.
