Welcoming a New Admin!

Post by Sammy » Sun Jun 24, 2018 7:48 pm

Disclaimer: If you have a weak gag reflex, look away now. It's about to get a bit soppy in here.

I am absolutely over the moon to announce that myself and Gids are formally welcoming Forge to the RPC admin team!


:squee: :squee: :squee: :squee: :squee:

I honestly cannot overstate how much Forge has done and continues to do for our community. While Gids has been busy owning every obstacle that real life has thrown at her (and still found time to answer my questions, help me out with certain tasks etc.), Forge has been more of a help to me than I could ever begin to describe. Whether it's entertaining my ridiculous graphics brainstorming...
Me: Hey Guys, what IF we had a graphic that transitioned from one icon to the other?! ... Am I getting carried away again? Sorry, so excited, my mind is running away with me.

*Very telling staff room silence that says 'Take a chill pill, Sammy'.*

*10 Minutes Later*

Forge: Hey Sammy, I made you a thing.

Me: Squeeeeeeee!
... and then making those graphic dreams come true in record-breaking time frames, taking over admin management of the Discord so I have one less thing to worry about, keeping votes high, welcoming new members, running contests, being an invaluable part of each and every staff discussion or just throwing himself 200% behind each and every one of my hare-brained schemes and that's without even touching on the moral support - the constant reminders that it's okay to take a break, the continuously open offer to help me out in any way he can and just being a permanently open sounding board and I am so flipping excited to be able to formally recognise all that hard work with a purple name! :squee:

I know that you guys only really get to see the tip of the iceberg of staff contributions to this place and, without giving you all the keys to the staffroom, it's hard to explain just how lucky I am and how lucky you all are to have such an amazing team working hard in their spare time to keep this place awesome. Whether it's Georgie absolutely owning our Twitter presence, Rick with his way of just... sucking new members into the community and making them feel instantly at home or Deebz with his commitment to getting those new members submerged into the wonderful world of RP. I honestly could not keep doing this without these guys and absolutely couldn't wish for a greater bunch of people to get to do it with.

Anyway... please join me in congratulating Forge on a absolutely, amazingly well deserved promotion and, maybe, in thanking your awesome Global Mod team for everything they do for this place. :heart:

Teamwork makes the dreamwork!

You know, since I got here, the decor in this place has been missing something: some purple Forge.

Well done, Forge. And to Sammy and the entire team, you're incredibly appreciated. It's ridiculous how much time you dedicate to making this an awesome place.

Cheers, Forge. Well deserved.

Heh. I was just thinking this should happen the other day.

If it hadn't been for the green name, I would have thought you were an admin already. Congratulations, Forgesicle!!!!

I think it's safe to say we all saw that coming. Congrats, Forge, you deserve that purple username. It even fits the current staff theme! ^^


Oh, and big thanks to all of the staff for keeping this place together!

Thanks, guys. I promise to only abuse my new power on weekends and bank holidays.

No, in all seriousness, this community (in its various forms) has shaped my development as a writer for going on a decade now. It's an incredible privilege to write with all of you, and to work with a group of nerds who are as unflinchingly dedicated to what they do as the current Staff are, and being given the chance to join the Admin team is nothing short of an honour. I'm very fortunate to have people like Rick, Gordo and Deebs to argue brainstorm with on a regular basis, and even more so to have someone like Sammy to aspire to be like. She's set the bar pretty damn high with this Admin thing, and I really hope that I'll be able to give back to you guys in even half the way she has so far.

I don't say this enough, but I couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with. Thank you for everything you do to keep this place awesome, from enforcing the rules and drumming up new ideas to arguing with customer service teams about server issues. You guys are awesome.
Right. That's enough of that. Moving on.

:squee: You really deserve this man!

I don’t know if I should be proud or scared,
But either way: CONGRATS FORGE!
