staff :Thonk: Introducing the MLPF Staff World Cup*

Recommended Posts

ARE YOU READY TO RUMBLE?

*not a real event

 

 

Story Time With Jeric

So for several years one of the most helpful individuals on MLPF helping users out hasn't been staff. It's been one of the most friendly, least aggressive, and probably one of the best visual in-joke comedians on this site. Obviously we wanted this guy on staff. I jumped back on board as an Admin almost a year ago and within a few days I was like, "We need this guy! This guy's fantastic." Everyone agreed. We contacted him and he seemed interested ... so I said to myself I need to get this guy interviewed ASAP. I'll get him set up on staff in a week. How well did that go?

This is not an exaggeration. 

 

Joking aside, I am pleased to announce @Rikifive will be stepping into the role of our dedicated staff for Canterlot, focusing on Site Questions and Feedback. I hope to work really closely in the coming months to improve communication and maybe even solve a few minor annoyances. Even though Riki is going to be our help Pone for the community, recently he has been helping out with some event related items. On a very personal note, this was my first MLPF staff role here. Since then only a few have filled that spot and all have been major players on MLPF over the years. Riki, doesn't have to fill shoes though, he is already a major player here. I genuinely can't think we have ever had a better person for the Canterlot section since I've been here, and that includes me. 

Riki, you already own this section. Spread them wings.

I was seriously hoping that this would be a legitimate event. Oh well.

Anyways, congratulations @Rikifive. I'm sure you'll do a great job!

Congratulations, my friend! :mlp_yay:

To be honest, I'm actually wondering why this didn't happen even earlier! :kindness: You were literally made for this role, I can't imagine anyone else being a better fit for it! :D Good luck, I know you'll do an awesome job! B)

he is the most qualified after all, his resume was incredible, who else can boast writing a book about ranks?

Oh... so that's what the meaning behind this thread was. I thought it had to do with something else, namely, the MLPF World Cup. Whoops. Now don't I look silly. In any case, I can now formally welcome you, @Rikifive. Hopefully the wait wasn't too unbearable.

OK, I totally did a doubletake and wondered if we were going to be voting on mods pitted against each other.

Not a surprise to me because it...doesn't come as a surprise and kind of had insight information, more or less in some way.

Spoiler

Mostly just that he closed a topic in that area a few weeks ago.

If he was so long on the radar, why did it took a while? (Not meant offensive or judging in any way, just curious)

I also figured I somehow thought he joined last year, boy, was I wrong! :catface:

I also wonder if he will end up doing other stuff already considering his artworks/image editing and coding skills.

Congratulation on the level up. Can we get twithonk now?

Joking aside, sweet Celestia I don't know what to say. I didn't expect such nice words. :mlp_rarity: I hope my wings are ready, I wouldn't like to disappoint anyone. That's a really great announcement, no wonder why it took ages. It was absolutely worth waiting for. jk :catface: Thanks @Jeric.

I admit I was considering applying in the past, but I honestly thought I wouldn't bring anything valuable in that position. Sharing words of incredible wisdom no one asked for as a fellow member was good enough for me. :P That was until one of the staffers, @Sunset Rose poked me. She encouraged me to give it a try and see how it goes. So yeah, in the end I'm here thanks to her, as otherwise I'd still remain silent. :P

These are big words Taco. :derp: I love this kind of work and I hope I won't give anyone a reason to be disappointed. :mlp_rarity: Once again, thank you Taco. It surely will be a pleasure to work for members like you. :mlp_grin:

All I can say is, that I'm always willing to help whenever I can, or at least try to. :P Perhaps one day I might be useful.

It's a shame our times as staff didn't overlap, it would have been fun. I think most people understand you are perfect for this, Riki. :squee:

Good luck, I believe in you!

(By the way I did remember to wave to you when I flew over Poland!)

:pinkie:   Congrats Rikifive!!! Always enjoyable as fellow member, I am sure you'll do brilliantly as a staff! (Plus I have seen you helping people out before, answering questions and such, and you always do a great job at it). Even if I hardly ever directly interacted with you, (and I have only seen you since I retured to the forums last year) you easily became one of my favourite, most interestingly exciting members.
