I'm officially closing voting now. I'm going to recount everything once more before posting the results. Expect them in about two hours, but if everything's right we're probably going to have three new mods (there was a two-way tie for second place that I don't feel like breaking, and Yop said having three new mods was fine) and one new admin.

CameoAmalthea		0
Dawnbreaker		5
ForceStealer		5
Gym Leader Devil	7
looneymoon		0

Lex spoiled me before I logged in the forum, that bastard. I'm very surprised, my reaction when I logged in was sorta like "OMG I'm blue, the forum looks different. I don't know what to do with myself". Thanks you guys, I feel very honored and I promise to do my best as a mod. I'm very happy to have been made a mod alongside two of the most awesome people in the forum, congrats Lex and Mage.

Also Tres your boss, congrats you awesome dude.

Congrats guys. This is the best result possible, I got enough votes to not feel unloved, not enough to actually have to do the job, and we got kickass people to actually do the job. Win
