I am not in control of who is and isn't part of our moderator team. We nonetheless are doing our best to maintain r/IAmA as a high quality AMA place.

I don't want to use the word 'recap' (especially w this group) but maybe some high/low lights from the year? A quick review of some of the more popular threads? The top 5 up voted posts/comments/etc. Remind us what happened this past year.
