First of all thank you for all the positive and heartwarming comments from all of you, I'm very proud and happy to be part of this community!
Also a big thanks to everyone in the SAES clan and HQ team for allowing me to be part of this great journey and for the trust to grant me this position and everything that comes with it.
For most people this might come as a complete surprise as I've mainly been helping out behind the scenes as Brophy mentioned, but thanks to all of you for taking it in such a positive way!
I hope I'll be able to give back to the community what I've been getting for a long time now... love, respect and lots of fun but in a righteous way!
I'd also like to thank everyone in the CS, SAES and SAES HQ teams for helping me out with the basics of moderation/administration (and for not making me feel like a complete noob).
