I'm Pops, a Community Manager at Stack Exchange. I have some sad news and some happy news. The sad news (for you guys, at least) is that your long-time moderator Tim Bezhashvyly has stepped down from his post here to pursue another project.
Fortunately for you, a great new pro tem mod is taking his place:
Most of you probably already recognize Marius, since he's the top user by reputation on the site. What you may not know is that he's been actively participating in community moderation for a long time now, by regularly casting useful flags and votes, and just generally helping the system work the way it's supposed to. Without further ado, please join me in wishing Tim well on his next adventure and welcoming Marius to your moderator team!
