Good morning everypony! Due to a special site event, I've decided to do this weeks community post in a special way... recording yours truly on webcam to give you the news! Why is this you ask? Because Everypony has reached 3000 members! That's right, over 3000 people have joined this humble site and I'd like to extend a completely personal and sincere thank you. Thank you all, for everything. We wouldn't be here without you. I wouldn't be here without you. Before I go into the news, I'd like to say a few names that I'd like to thank for being on this site.
First of all, Pixel. I know recently you've been through tough times, but you've always been active and friendly around the site. You've given your advice when we've asked and with over 12000 posts you are the sites most active member, be it giving advice, joining a debate or just having fun. Thank you, Pixel. Thank you.
Secondly I'd like to thank all the staff, both current and former. With the exception of one (I'm sorry to say), I feel that it was an honour and privilege to work with all of you. Each one of you have made an impact in my life and as you continue to do so I just want you to know that for many of you, you're not colleagues. You're family. Thank you so much.
So this doesn't get too long winded, some other names I'd like to thank specifically:
Virgil Pony, Lightning Mustang, Asuya, Ryu Himora, Spiral, Gilson/BrianBlessedPony, Saikyo, Zephyr and Harley.
You guys. All of you guys are just so awesome in what you do for me and what you do for the site that I can't continue without making sure I've said your names.
Anyway, now the sentimental stuff is out of the way, let's get on with the news!
I am sad to say that Viperbait has retired from his position on the site. Some of you may have seen his farewell thread already. I wish him all the best in his future endeavours and hope what he finds next makes him happy.
However, with this loss comes new staff! First of all I'd like to congratulate Zephyr Haste in being promoted to Forum Moderator as well as Radio DJ! Also, I'd like to congratulate Tenor Trouble in his new role as Fanfiction Moderator, Mike406 as Technical Support and Lightning Mustang as our new brand new Blogs moderator! I'm sure I speak for the entire staff that we look forward to working with you guys and hope you fit in really well in your roles.
As mentioned above, everypony has a new area! Blogs! Yes, personal blog pages that everyone can view and use. How does one use them? What can we do with them? Just use this guide made by Grey Knightmare which explains everything!
In other news, the staff survey is now closed! We are no longer accepting entries and I shall be spending this next week collecting, analyzing, reticulating and other fancy words the results to see what you guys think of us so we can improve ourselves for your and the site.
Finally, if you haven't noticed, the next Karaoke Night has been announced! The theme is Video Games! Controller, keyboard, joystick, no matter how you play them, you can't deny they have awesome music! So open your heart everypony, this isn't just his world to sing in. Never turn back and show us what you're made of! (I'm sure I just made some sonic fans squee >.>) As usual the thread can be found here or in the Everypony Labels area of the forums under 'Radio Announcements'.
That's all from me Everypony. I hope you enjoyed this special 3000 member community post video!
