    Hello, community members—whether you’ve been with us for years or have just joined HubPages-Maven, many of you have had the pleasure of developing a wonderful working relationship and friendship with Robin Edmondson, the backbone of our community and editorial team. Robin, who has been with HubPages-Maven since its launch, recently decided to retire from the editorial team to pursue life and enjoyment beyond work. This news is certainly bittersweet, but we are excited for Robin. She will still be a part of the community, just not in an official capacity. With these changes in mind, please continue to reach out to your Network Site editors and the following team members:

    - Tessa Buchin, your go-to for editorial policies (contact for questions/concerns)
    - Matt Wells, your go-to for all things moderation
    - Sam Cubbison, your go-to for all things community

    Feel free to contact us with any questions or additional words of thanks for Robin at We look forward to continuing her vision for authorship on our platform and we truly value you as community members.

      2020 please go away, you've done enough damage already.

      Robin, thank you for your hard work and professionalism over the years. You'll be sorely missed. I hope you have a fruitful, busy few years of relaxation.

      Thank you, Robin, for your commitment and hard work for HP-Maven. I remember a time about a year ago when you responded to a concern I expressed related to one of my articles. Your email was kind and considerate and you expressed empathy and understanding. May God bless you as you enter this new stage of your life.

      There is a question to be asked.

      Is the team right-wing?

      The moderation certainly appears to be.

        You should probably start a new thread.

          Why. I'm asking management - not the opinion of hubbers.

            Well, it's been 4 days; so I guess somebody should respond. smile

            I have a lifetime of experience with corporate America, I have written blistering articles about such. Unless there is money to be made, it is just not worth my time or money to fight what goes on there.

            As to your inquiry, SF is a liberal bastion; as to the individual in question: unknown.

            I have not posted about politics much, so you are on your own as to my own personal experiences in these matters.

            I have been informed where there is a forum where it can apparently be a free-for-all. Interested? I won't post it here, but I'm sure it can be conveyed to you privately. smile

      Robin, you always made yourself available when our need for attention was necessary. And you were always helpful. You will be missed, but I’m glad for you that you decided to focus on yourself for a change. Thank you for everything you’ve always done. Be well.

      Hi Robin,  thanks for all the help you've given me in past years.So you're going to spread your wings again and fly in a new direction. Hope you'll find what you're looking for. Have a good time in whatever you're going to do and stay safe.

      Thank you Robin for everything. Without you and the HP platform, I would never have become a writer today. Your encouragement kept some of us going. We are enjoying some of the benefits today.

      Enjoy your new adventure. Wishing you all the best.

      But please pop in now and then to say hi. smile

      Robin. You are one of the most sanest, most ethical, most logical, kindest persons I have ever known. You will be missed.

      Do at least keep an eye on Maven for us. big_smile

      Update, No, I am not implying any criticisms of Maven. In fact, if Maven stock were to be subjected to another COVID crash and burn; I'd seriously consider buying the stock pre-rebound.

        Another update. Robin has not quite quit corporate life as far as I can tell. I only wish I had the abilities she has. As for me, I blame it on my DNA; facts are facts. As far as investment opportunities goes; follow Robin's career and one will prosper. She has the ability to communicate (along with everything else I said); this is rare. Robin, speaking from the heart, you have no idea how much good you can do.

      I'm not sure if you'd read this, but thanks for everything and just being you, Robin. It was always a pleasure to be in contact and your presence on the forums will be missed. Cheers to the next big step in your life and hopefully we'd get to read about some of your new experiences.

      Until then, adios.
