    Hi friends,

    I have some very exciting news today! I'm thrilled to announce that moderator Samantha Cubbison will be taking over for me as community manager. I've had an absolutely marvelous time working with all of you, and I'm sad to be saying goodbye, but I'm thrilled to be passing the torch to someone honest and kind. I know she will get the hang of things quickly. Please give her a warm welcome!

          Stick around at HubPages also as a writer? That would be helpful to us all.

    Aww, it's sad to see you go. I hope you're moving on to something better. Thanks for all you've done. First Simone and now you leave. Good luck with whatever you do next smile

    Also, a warm welcome to Samantha.

      robhamptonposted 6 weeks agoin reply to this

      Question I have though, although congrats to Samantha and best wishes to Christy, is there something we don't know? HP going under? Sorry I hate thinking things like this but I can't help it.  Does she know something we don't? Maybe just a career move for her and I'm just thinking silly.

      1. lobobrandon profile image89
        lobobrandonposted 6 weeks agoin reply to this

        Nah I doubt it. They are doing a lot better than before, so it's mostly a career move.

        1. paradigmsearch profile image89
          paradigmsearchposted 6 weeks agoin reply to this

          Agreed. In fact, I put the odds at over 90% that Christy got herself a major career promotion and at least a 50%-to-double pay raise. Class pays.

    Samantha, I see you have been around HP for awhile. I also see that you are fluent in at least two languages; that alone is more than I could every do. I also see what you have accomplished in the last 10 years; you are amazing.

    Welcome to the current circus. I'd give advice, but you don't need it.
