Hey all you lovely TP'ers,
We welcomed Kate Kendall (katekendall) on board the Travellerspoint team today. She's going to be working with us out of the office in Melbourne taking care of marketing, communication, social media and community strategies. All round awesome person and it's great to have her on side with us!
So please take the time to say hello
[ Edit: new username here ]
Hi Kate, welcome to Travellerspoint and good luck with your new role.
Woot, woot, welcome on board Kate! Don't let Peter, Dmitry or Eric bite
What's your main focus going to be with the "communication, social media and community strategies", outward or inward? (i.e. are we going to be seeing much of you here on the site (in which case, hi, I'm the guy who's going to complain about any social networking feature which feels "forced", and always wants an opt-out in favour of privacy ), or are we rather going to notice your presence by the way you pull more people from the great outside toward the site?)

Welcome aboard Kate!!! Don't know about Dmirty but Eric doesn't bite and Peter will be busy collecting eggs from his chickens. Oh wait, that's only 2 eggs a day... So, he may bite.
Ignore Sander for a few days and take time to bask in the "glow". After that, you can tackle his questions because he will tackle you a some point. I think he bites too. Okay, that's just a rumor...
Hopefully, you'll enjoy working with this group as much as we all have from one side or another. Again, welcome to the TP Team!!!
ps: If you ever need it, there is a "Holy TP Crowbar" available. I'm accused of using it to break everything on TP regularly. I'll be happy to lend it to you.
Thanks so much for the welcome – really appreciate it.
Very excited about helping the guys out and joining the community.
Sander - in regards to your question... a bit of both. Bring more people to the site and also pay a lot of attention to current users and their happiness.
Always keen to hear thoughts and ideas.
Looking forward to the conversation!
Don't worry about anyone biting, we're one big happy bunch here!!!! Unless you bite, then we'll have to respond in kind.....I think, depends on everyone's dental conditions. I don't bite, but I may gnaw a little.....just me, I drink beer for a living!!!!
Welcome to TP! I'm the mad moderator here. A bit too busy with work lately, hence six days late to welcoming you. While I may have the mad title, it's those in the dungeon where you'll be working from you really should be afraid of!!! And if anything breaks, most often than not it's Isa's fault. (Isa, don't whitewash that thing by calling it holy. )
All the best!

See!!!! I'm blamed for most everything!!
It is holy because I wholly hold the power to wield it. I also still have possession of the "holy hose" - don't forget that my co-moderating friend! TP Mom knows where you live so tread lightly.
Kate realize that Sander may actually be a robot... (Wily creatures.) Though the original photo link is no longer available - several others are and the discussion goes on for pages. (Again, be prepared for battle.)
BTW - are you a pirate? (If not, meet us in the TP Martini Lounge located in the TP basement and we can fix that. Cocktails almost every Friday.)
As you know - TP is serious business, but we also like to have fun where and when we can.
Thanks! Will join you all in the Martini Lounge!
