    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! wink)  You can read her self-introduction over in the newsletter archive.  She's had quite the career already, but we're confident that once she gets sucked into--ahem, I mean, acquainted with--the HubPages population, she's never going to want to leave!

    Please give a warm (and relatively gentle... no Hannibal Lector pictures this time, I mean it!) welcome to Simone Smith!!!!

    What are the responsibilities of a community and marketing manager? Do you have a job description for this? Sounds like two giant hats to wear.

    Welcome, Simone (love your name).

      Welcome to HubPages, Simone!

      I read your bio in the newsletter earlier today and you certainly have had a variety of experiences. I am sure that will help you bring a wonderful knowledge to this wonderfully varied place that is Hub Pages.

      Very best wishes,

      Gordon

    I'm trying to figure something out...

    If Simone is the new Community and Marketing Manager, what's gonna happen to the old Community Manager, Maddie Ruud?

    Sorry Maddie, didn't mean to call you old. smile smile

    I guess what I'm trying to say is: Maddie are you stepping up, down, sideways, or what?

    Oh, and WELCOME SIMONE! smile

    It's sad that Simone's joining HP has led to not being able to edit a forum post and also to questions about Maddie's continuing role at HP.

    My apologies, Simone, that your introduction here brings up these questions. I just want to know why edits to posts in this forum are not allowed, and I also would like to know more about your dual role as Community and Marketing Manager.

    1. Haunty profile image80
      Hauntyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I think you can't edit posts in the official announcement forum as long as the eat, drink and stuff contest is running to prevent cheating in the daily quizzes.

      1. Sally's Trove profile image79
        Sally's Troveposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I really see the connection between announcing Simone's new job and "...the eat, drink and stuff contest."

        1. Rochelle Frank profile image94
          Rochelle Frankposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          They are all connected to "HubPage Announcements".

    2. Jason Menayan profile image61
      Jason Menayanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      We had to disable editing of posts in this forum in particular (Official HubPages Announcements) during the month of June, so that people participating in the Daily Puzzle (for the contest) wouldn't edit guesses after posting them.

      Editing will resume in this forum in July. You can edit your posts in all of the other forums.

    To all of you, thanks so much!! 

    I'm ridiculously excited to be here, and can't wait to read your fabulous hubs and help to make your experience at HubPages even better.

    As for Maddie, (who is, by the way, hands down, the coolest person I've met this week) don't worry!  She ain't going NOWHERE, especially because I won't have it.  Selfishly speaking, I simply cannot TOLERATE the thought of not working with her.  So all's well!

    Now I can certainly say this- I'm newer to this community than all of you, so it'll take me a while to get up to snuff (I mean, seriously guys... my HubScore is 53.  53!!!).  That said, I'm going to give this my all and am happy to take advice form any and all of you.  So don't be shy!  Let's chat!

      Dearest hubscore of 53,
      You will rocket in score and much more soon enough. Were I not in the middle of two massive moves (one from out of state, another to a local new residence...) I would leave sassy comments on your hubs. But alack and alas, I shall have rain-check on that one(s)...

      Loving the avatar, babycakes.
      Welcome, kudos and etc., etc.,

      Looking forward to mucho!

      Randy, that might actually be the best advice I've seen given on HubPages, ever.



      I'm still young enough that being called old is funny.  Maybe after my 24th birthday in July, I'll start taking it seriously. wink
