Again, thank you all so much for the support. ...It really means a lot to me because this really, really wasn't an easy call. 

 

I'm glad you're all as awesome as you are and that this community is the place that it is. I wouldn't trade the awesome that you guys have brought into my world for anything.

You have my sympathy, Erika. Dealing with people is hard.

*big hug* Erika! Everyone already said pretty much what I think too... Just having you here on the forum in any capacity means to me personally a lot:-*

It's good that you were able to make an honest heartfelt decision about this, rather than continuing in a position that you weren't comfortable with.  As someone who is currently in discussions with officially joining a company where I am currently a volunteer moderator, I definitely understand your thoughts about the huge difference between a volunteer position and an official one.  At first it might have just seemed like continuing what you're doing with extra responsibilities, but it's definitely more than that.  And, I also know that it couldn't have been an easy decision to make. It's good that you've decided to stay as a moderator too, as you enjoy doing that, and as long as those feelings continue, that's all that matters. :)

I've not been very vocal for the last few months but wanted to add my virtual hug. I'm glad you're doing what's best for you as well as being happy that you'll still be active as a member. :D

I wanna echo what Ragnar said -- this community basically would not be here without you, Erika. Sorry to hear it didn't work out. Either way we're thrilled to have you here. :-)

I'm so new to this community, I am not even sure what happened there :D All I know is the warm answers you and others gave me when I asked my first question here and I stuck around ever since then :D

Hi gang, 
 
Time for some big honesty here. 
 
I'm stepping down as Community Manager. 
 
I know, a bunch of you are going to be all like "What?? Why? Already??" So I hope you'll hear me out a minute. 
 
When RTG contacted me about this, I was thrilled. I really, really wanted to do it. And they were excited. And it seemed awesome. So we agreed to do a bit of a trial run and see how everything felt.
 
For me, it just isn't feeling right. I'm a little overwhelmed (okay, a lot overwhelmed) and I can't adequately navigate that right now. And I'm also afraid that this is pulling me away from the community. And making this place a stressor, rather than a fun place for me. Which I do not want. And neither does RTG. 
 
So we talked, and agreed that maybe it just wasn't meant to be. 
 
I want to make two things very clear. 
 
1.) This was my call. It's a hard call to make. But it's mine. 
2.) There are no hard feelings between me and RTG. 
 
So what does this mean? Mostly nothing. Things will hopefully go back to the way they were before last week. 
 
I know a lot of you are probably going to be disappointed. I know some of you may question my decision. But I hope that as supportive as you were of me stepping into this role, you will be able to be equally supportive of me and RTG now.
 
Thank you all. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out. 
 
--Erika

 

Didn't spot this 'til just now - sorry to hear that it didn't work out but hopefully things felt more normal after stepping back *hugs*
