What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 137 Stack Exchange communities.

Well, it's finally over. Our year-end excuse for navel-gazing has come to an end, with four new moderators fresh from the turkey-fryer and ready to volunteer their formerly-precious free time in service to the users of Stack Overflow:

Let's take a moment to give a hearty meta-welcome to our new moderators, before they get turned loose on the site and destroy us all...

I also wish to announce that veteran moderators SLaks and Gumbo are hanging up their mod-hats. Moderating a site the size of Stack Overflow can be a thankless job at times, so please join me now in thanking them both for their service, and wishing them all the best as they rejoin the esteemed ranks of Stack Exchange experts.

Now back to your regularly-scheduled Meta Madness...
