I am Rarity and you, dear reader, are AJ. Deal with it, you ARE the new Applejack!

 

 

I have always said that this Community is smart as all get out. You notice things. You notice changes. There have been a lot of changes of late. Back in November I had a discussion with a certain magical mare who was interested in lending a hoof in bringing some mirth and joy to the community. 2020-2022 were rather exhausting times for many staffers and several in the community. I will admit that we lost a little bit of that typical bounce in our step. I dusted myself off and went on a mission to bring on new Event staff. One individual sent me a PM, but it wasn't a normal PM. It was a video message. In all the years I have worked here, nobody had that level of confidence and trust to break that veil. I was intrigued. We chatted on Discord. This individual felt like a breath of fresh air, and was actually rejuvenating. Her enthusiasm and joy were infectious. I snatched her up quick and she made a big impact almost from go, even while she was tending to the stress of her soon to be special somepony. 

 

@Princess Silky has been a boon for Events and for the Forum as a whole. In our discussions I realized the depth of love for this place came for a place of authenticity, and her soft touch to those she meets fits my own view of community stewardship. It wasn't just my eye she caught. She managed to impress many, including the very founder of this organization. Driven by the potential of not just MLPF, but many of the other services of Poniverse, she found herself just as energized as the the staff who worked with her. She is meant for bigger things. She is exactly what Poniverse needs, what these forums need. Many of you have had interactions with her and can agree that she is definitely one of the most friendly, approachable, and charismatic members here. 

 

I asked her for the opportunity to type this up, introducing her as the Head of Poniverse Public Relations. I put my full faith in her. I ask that you do as well. Silky will be tasked with helping to ensure a friendlier, more active, and more engaging experience in all the Poniverse sites, including here. Her elevation to help overseeing and promoting all levels within Poniverse should not be a shock to anyone who has discussed ideas with her. She will be working hoof and hoof with her colleagues in Administration, various departments in the Forums and beyond, for the sake of making this site a greater place to relax, meet friends, hang out, play games, and talk about ponies. You will see her around. If you have any concerns or ideas, her stable is always open. 

 

 

On a personal note, I am thankful to have met her, and start to call her a friend. You got this.

I saw this coming for a long time. You'll do great. I've had your back for all this time, and that will be one thing that doesn't change. You are one of the most important people I have met in my life, and I do not say that lightly. To see you, in such a role, is only fitting. Your guidance and patience with me has been a virtue. One that I will never forget. @Princess Silky

I've only befriended you recently, @Princess Silky, but based on our limited interactions I've no doubt you'll help make our community a better place. Please lean on any of us, old and new, that you may need to, we'll do all that we can to support you and your efforts for Poniverse!
