Congrats Avazula!! Welcome to moderating, we're glad to have you on the team!

And shouts out to the other candidates for making it hard to rank my votes - I'm looking forward to seeing the site continue to grow with all of you :)

  • It was really hard to choose who to vote for, indeed! Thank you Em C. – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 6:00

Congrats Avazula, I'm sure you'll make an excellent moderator and I'm excited to see you join the team.

  • Looking forward to reviewing your flags :) Thank you Rainbacon. – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 5:56

Congrats avazula, I know you will be an amazing mod!

  • Thank you Ælis, I'm counting on you to provide us our daily batch of posts to review :D – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 6:03
  • @avazula Be careful with what you wish, I might decide to ask a highly controversial vegan question who will then hit HNQ :p – Ael Jun 26 '19 at 7:49

Avazula has always had an upbeat, friendly attitude going into every interaction on the site I've seen. I can't help but imagine her smiling whenever I read one of her comments/messages.

I know you'll make a wonderful mod, Ava, and I can't wait to see what you do for the site with your new mod abilities!!

    Now beware to anyone I'll draw if they don't choose my drawing as their profile picture! Haha. Thanks Scohe, and thanks for everything you're doing for the site. – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 5:54

And thank you all for volunteering. There was a great pool of candidates.

  • Can I use a broom? I'm not a fan of rakes :p Thank you AJ! – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 5:53
  • No! You gotta use what SE gives you! :P Welcome! :) – A J Jun 26 '19 at 5:54
  • @avazula: actually, there are only 2 places where you can see a man with a broom. 1. my home 2. Hogwarts :D (wait! you ain't a boy?! jeez... miss it! ^-^) – OldPadawan Jun 26 '19 at 11:12
  • @OldPadawan Actually I'm an aircraft :D – avazula Jun 26 '19 at 11:40
  • @AJ how have you been a mod this long without knowing about all the mod-created improvements to the tools? Avazula is certainly allowed to transform the rake into a broom, but when SE changes something in the backend that breaks the handle, it'll also be her problem to fix. :-) – Monica Cellio Jun 26 '19 at 15:13
  • @MonicaCellio Yeah, sure! She can! She can also turn it into a mop to polish things if she wants. ;P – A J Jun 26 '19 at 15:24
  • Be careful with mops; the water's rate-limited. :-) – Monica Cellio Jun 26 '19 at 15:34

I knew you would win. IPS is lucky to have you!
