Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone who ran!

ikanreed didn't win? Rigged! In all seriousness, congrats to Human and Spud! RoninMacbeth (talk) 02:40, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
If I'd been here long enough to vote in this, I would've reelected them. —вιgℓʝвιgℓ (ᴛᴀʟᴋ/sᴛᴀʟᴋ) 23:59, 2 September 2017 (UTC)
I am not overworried about not having extra work to do. The board will do just fine. Until fuzzy gets busy with life stuff someday and then no one does all the heavy lifting of organizing everything. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 14:41, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
