If you've been around in the HubSpot Community for a while, you must've noticed that there are a lot of new faces on the Community recently and the Community Team thought it might be fun to share a little bit about ourselves with our Community and let you ask us anything!😊
We're excited to launch this AMA to celebrate the Community's newest board, Humans of HubSpot. Starting next week we'll spotlight Community members from around our Community in an effort to share more about who we are beyond our avatars and bios. While we can't wait to hear from all of you, we thought it was only right to kick things off by letting you ask us anything.
The HubSpot Community launched in 2016 and has grown into a thriving community in 6 languages with over 9,000 accepted solutions and over 85,000 users. Our goal is to create a space for all HubSpot users to ask questions, find answers and connect with professionals from around the world growing better with HubSpot. To achieve this mission, there are currently 8 Community Managers and each have dedicated space to manage.
We'll be answering questions from Wednesday 21 October - Wednesday 3 November.
Not sure what to ask? Here are a few sample questions:
What do Community Managers do other than creating content on the Community?
What does a typical day look like?
What are the Community’s plans for 2021 and beyond?

Hey everyone! I'm Nikita and I'm the Digital Marketing Specialist at Orixcom. My company offers cloud security and network connectivity solutions.

We're currently in the onboarding stages so looking forward to becoming a Hubspot pro! 😊
I want to close my hubspot community account, the username is conflicting with my agency profile listing name. Closing this account, I hope it will not affect the main hubspot account? Or is it advisable I just change the username, but I do not have access to change the username. Any help here will be appreciated.
thank you for reaching out! Your Community and HubSpot accounts are two separate entities, that's why closing your Community account wouldn't affect your HubSpot account.
I, however, recommend to update your Community username so you can still contribute and ask questions in the Community if needed; you can easily submit a new username request via this form. We'll take care of the rest 🙂
