Those old forum posts at the bottom of the forums are usually irritating, but I found this gem from Simone Smith which, even after all this time, does a better job of explaining the reasons behind HubPages' moderator standards than anything the current staff have said:
https://hubpages.com/community/forum/74 … ost1611861
Simone was such a great communicator!
@Marisa and Jan . . .a Sincere Happy New Year to you both. May you be blessed of God with health, happiness, and peace.
@janshares --- Peace, and thank you. (not a play on words).
and @Marisa . . .Happy New Year to You also and all of My Sweet Followers.
Happy New Year Kenneth, I hope you are feeling well and refreshed from your break with the family.
Simone was just the best and is sorely missed. She was a great communicator with a wonderful sense of humor.
So efficient. She was the best. I do miss her popping in and out of every forum to answer questions and moderate conflicts. She was such a good person. I guess we should let newer hubbers/writers know she left a couple years ago to pursue her own writing site . . . she's alive and well. We just miss her.
She was a staff member, one of the moderators. As Jan says, she has moved on to other projects now. She was one of HubPages' greatest assets, IMO.
Thanks for this nice appreciation of an ex-member of our community.
@Kenna -- did you read Marisa's description about Simone? Her comment spoke to me and I can share this with you and everyone here on HP. I would pay cash money to just be thought of in the same breath as Simone. Or Marisa. Either one. I am just being honest. I am very grateful to be a small part of HubPages and Love the people with this fine website.
I agree with Kenna. Writing is not an easy life and it's great to see that work keeps giving.

I realize it is not exactly an excellent piece of writing, but it doesn't strike me as something that should be hidden either. What could be the problem?http://hub.me/admdQ

For those of you who don't get the newsletter (or just don't always read it), I thought I'd start a good ol' fashioned forum thread to introduce Simone, our new Community & Marketing Manager extraordinaire! (Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere... there's plenty of Community to go around!...

Is there still life on HubPages?My views dropped by 90 %, almost none new hubs written by my friends Hubbers, activity close to absolute zero ... Is this normal???

Overall, was your 2014 better, worse or about the same as 2013? What did you accomplish on HP? What were your highlights?
