Congrats to the victors! I only voted for two people and they both got elected!

So sorry to see the low voter turnout!

2013 Talkboard Election results

4 out of 5 I voted for were elected. Well done to the new ones! Very pleased for you.
Disappointing voting numbers though....which in hindsight for people that have been around a long time getting people you know or speak to regularly isn't that hard. Hope to see the system overhauled.

I appreciate the vote of confidence from everybody who voted for me, and I will strive to work as hard as a member of Talkboard as I have over the past decade or so as a moderator and regular participant in Flyertalk discussions. Flyertalk is a great place already -- maybe the only website I check at least daily, no matter where I am or what I'm doing. I hope to make some contribution toward making Flyertalk even better in the future, and I look forward to working with my new Talkboard colleagues.

Congrats to (nearly) all.....now let's see some action please!

In my view TB last year spent most of the time asleep last year; with a rush to action just as elections arrived. Perhaps we can have some more proposals throughout the year?

What are your areas of concern? I know that you don't want action just for the sake of action.
