The SMF Team has recently held its annual election for the position of Project Manager.

After a number of years in the position Illori has chosen to step down to focus on providing support and Lex, who had been the Support Team lead up until this point, has won the election to become the new Project Manager for SMF.

The Team thanks Illori for all her hard work as Project Manager and welcomes Lex into the position.  Please join us in thanking Illori for all her hard work and congratulating Lex on his successful election.

We should start calling him the Dark Lord now. :D

You could argue that being Project Manager is less wearing that being a Support Bot. After 59,822 "ZOMG why doesn't my forum work" threads Illori may long for the old days.
