    Since we've had some recent changes in our moderation team, I thought I'd give everyone a little introduction!

    You probably all know me (maybe a little better than you'd like).  I'm the Community Manager here at HubPages.  I do some of everything, attempting to keep the site clean and users as happy as possible.

    Mausmi Mehta has actually been working behind the scenes at HubPages for almost a year now.  She does some moderation, but is mostly responsible for answering the emails that come into the site... and believe me, there are a lot of them!

    Our newest member is Norah Casey.  She'll be working primarily on moderating--reviewing flagged hubs, checking those that have been resubmitted, etc.  She's brand new (just started on Tuesday!), so try to be patient and understanding as she gets up to speed.

    Please give a warm welcome to Norah, and thanks to Mausmi for all the work she's done so far.  These jobs can be thankless, and HubPages is lucky to have such wonderful staff.

          Don't trust her Norah ... she gave me a ride in the hubmobile once and tried to push me out around a sharp turn - with no provacation or warning! ... Then again, I do remember passing some ill favors from the beandip nachos I ate the night before ... smile

        Hi Norah,
        Warm Welcome!
        Although I am a bit confused whether as a newcomer I have the right to welcome you!

        I welcome to Mousmi also and hope you both as well as other persons behind the scene will take us to a new destination this year.

        Happy New Year 2010! to all of you as well as my fellow hubbers!

      "(maybe a little better than you'd like)"

      I am honestly glad you have a sense of humor.  It makes me feel that you will do a better job than some who do not.
      Honestly, as long as you answer questions with specific answers and be OBJECTIVE rather than subjective I have no complaints and neither should anyone else.

      (Mind you, HP really needs to hire ME since I know the MOST about getting your hubs flagged and supporting free speech.)

      Anyway, we all obviously enjoy HP or we wouldn't still be here.

    Norah, welcome to you, too.  I just checked out your profile and discovered I like your choice of hubs and need to go sign up as your follower despite the fact that (as most of the "older" hands know) I slam the term "follower" every chance I get.
