    @Zashara Sho'am has served the Tower in a number of staff and administrator positions during her 16 years with us, including several moderation roles like her current position as a floating moderator, as well as positions in the Department of Membership, who she will work with regularly. In the announcement conversation, she was an active critic of our plans, and in her application she submitted a very thorough list of ideas and analyses for suggested improvements. I believe that this additional perspective will ensure that our new moderation system is the best we are capable of delivering. In addition, she has real life experience with many of the technologies we use to run the site and should be able to help fill in during leaves of absence for the other Masters of the Watch.

    Zasha and I work well together; she is one of my Aes Sedai. When I received her application, I reached out to the Keeper, who reviewed both of the applications with me to ensure that I was being impartial in my evaluation, and we both agreed that she is the right choice for this job. I look forward to establishing an improved moderation system, closely tied with the new mediation system.

    There were two applications for this role, and we thank the other applicant for her interest.

    Please join me in congratulating Zasha, Mistress of the Watch - Moderation!

    She was the absolutely right person for this job. Zasha has never been afraid to make a decision that needed to be mad. I have a warning myself from her.

    Congrats friend.. the Tower is lucky to have you.

    The site doesn't think a series of emoji from my phone keyboard are an appropriate form of communication and wouldn't post just that, so here is me using my words to congratulate you!

    You're just trying to get me to abuse my admin powers on Day 1 to delete this aren't you?

    Thanks everyone else!
