Hello everyone,

I'd like to give you some good news today! As many of you know (or don't), Synchroze and I have been tag-teaming the duties of being CM (community manager) of the PWI forums for quite some time now. Actually, too long to be quite honest! This game deserves much more of our time than we could give, so you would only see us when the boat started to shake and the water was rocky.

Thankfully, this is now coming to an end with a new CM who will be both dedicated to PWI and ARC together!

You may have seem him around the forums lately as he is very interested on past and current hot topics of the community. I've given him the briefing on what we'd all like to see for PWI, but I'm sure many of you will re-iterate these topics (as you should).

He is very new and so please be gentle with him. b:victory

Introducing... your new CM... SparkieSoft!

    Hello!

    You may have read the maintenance thread, but I'd like to formally introduce myself here. My CM name is sparkiesoft and I've been working in the gaming industry for about 3 years now. As DoD mentioned, I'll be on PWI as well as Arc, so if you ever have any questions or concerns, let me know and I'll try to answer them to the best of my abilities.

    I'm usually not much for words, so if you have any particular questions about myself, feel free to ask. (appropriate of course!)

    I look forward to hearing from all of you!

    Kossy linked to the maintenance thread and I thought it was an old thread that had to do with Spoons for some reason. Saw another red name with yet a small again post count, thought it was someone who'd only been here for a bit in the past...

    Nope, new soft person. Hello :3

    *pets* Sparkiesoft makes me think of some furry quad critter. So you get pets. 's that okay?
    --but yes stoneface is only made fashinable by Kossy. x3 *purr*

    Oh.... and....
    DoD....
    now that you're not tag-teaming CM... does that mean you'll resume speaking in rhythmic :3?

    I won't scare ya quite yet but here we go...

    Rules of PWI

    Never ever ever say "soon" as a reply.

    Try to reply to major questions even if it is just to say that you are looking into it... (and please follow up every day if nothing more than to say still looking-waiting for reply from boss-hamster died waiting on new wheel pusher...)

    There have been times that large portions of the player base have glitched items, levels, power aka orbs. Most of the time nothing major happens to those who cheat. We don't like that.

    Be visable, be fun, join us on the servers now and then and throw us a boss. Makes people know that you are there for them as well as increase server morale.

    Rest of Skog's post has been removed due to client instability

    Hello Sparkie,

    So I have a question for you. I understand if you haven't had much time to settle in yet, but I was wondering if you had any goals for what you'd like to do with the community.

    Things I hope you'll treat as priorities:
    Update progress on bug fixes in the New Horizons thread.
    Keep up on Quality Corner, and review old bugs noted there that haven't been dealt with yet.
