I'm Pops, a Community Manager at Stack Exchange. I'm here today to announce two new moderators for your community, replacing two long-serving mods who have stepped down. Please welcome:

Please join me in welcoming Mike and Scott to the mod team, and in thanking PearsonArtPhoto and Amber for their service!

Welcome!

It's pretty quiet around here, so moderation doesn't involve a lot of volume of work — I always feel the tricky bit is the judgement calls, particularly around the quality of answers and the topicality of questions.

Let's go dust off that moderation chat room a bit…

Good to see some new mods. This site just became too much for my current time, but I welcome the new moderators! Congrats!

Thanks! I have been into radio for a long time (33 years and counting), and have been hanging out on here for three years (long beta!). Most of my contributions so far have been in flagging questions/answers, and retagging questions.

Question tags are a pet peeve of mine. It frustrates me when a question is posted with no consideration of how it should be tagged. Tags are there to assist other people who are trying to find questions that might be relevant to them. It doesn't take much to think "I am asking a question about propagation, so let me add the 'propagation' tag". That way, we have all questions about propagation grouped together.

That's my pet peeve anyway. Expect to see me continuing to retag lots of questions from now.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello Scott, I haven't given a lot of thought to tags, but it looks like you have some good thoughts on this to share. I look forward to working with you and Kevin. I've always thought that he is an outstanding moderator. :-) $\endgroup$ – Mike Waters May 17 '17 at 1:55

    $\begingroup$ My pet peeve is when tags exist and are used but aren't useful categories. As you can probably tell from my meta posts! $\endgroup$ – Kevin Reid AG6YO May 17 '17 at 1:57

Besides PearsonArtPhoto and Rlocher, who else were moderators on hamSE in the past?
