    HubPagesposted 9 years ago

    Hello everyone,

    You've known her for over a year as one of our best Hubbers, but now Maddie Ruud joins HubPages (yes, at our downtown SF office) as the head moderator!

    She will be moderating Hubs, the Forums, and Requests, and answering our team email box. As someone who has demonstrated that she knows, respects and maintains the high standards that HubPages enjoys, we are thrilled to have her as part of the team.

    Please give her a warm welcome, everyone!

    - Jason

      Hello Maddie! 
          Welcome to HubPages!  I am brand new myself so we are in the same boat I suppose-except you will be moderating ME!  Have lots of fun.  -Derrik

        Hi Derrick:

        I've actually been working here at HubPages since March, and was a Hubber on the site for about a year before that.  I hope I won't have to moderate you... be sure to check out our guidelines on Overly Promotional content and Substandard content just to be sure!

      Thanks Jimmy!  I'm thrilled to be writing this (from the HubPages headquarters!), not only as a member of the HP community, but also as an official member of the team.  Great to be able to help out a site in which I've been so invested myself, and take a little pressure off the fantastic team you all know and love--Jason, Paul, and Paul, especially.

    Congratulations Maddie -

    I have observed your style in the forum Hubs and I find you to be very credible with how you communicate with people.

    Congratulations to HP for their smart pick with Maddie Ruud:-) 

    This is a much needed position to be filled - as HubPages continues to grow.  I am confident that Maddie's influence will help to ensure  that our forums remain helpful places for all to come and learn.

    *meanwhile pundits wait in the wings, waiting to see what sweeping changes Head Moderator Maddie will make. Will she be a kind and magnanimous ruler? Will she stamp out duplicate content and subject all to rigorous spell checking? The tides of change have risen, and the Interweb gods have spoken*

    Hail Maddie!

    (In all seriousness, congratulations smile You definitely deserve it.)

    I think the proper congratulatory expression to the bride is "Good Luck!" Hubpages is again showing good judgment.

    Do you want to hear all my questions now, or later?
