Why this blog?

Why this blog?

There are innumerable blogs relating to the video game industry. Most of them cover fairly specific design and development issues, written by designers and/or developers. Nothing wrong with that, of course.

What we don’t see, that I know of, is communication from a broad section of the game development industry. Call me a masochist, but I’d love to see a QA blog. Or a Customer Support one. Now THAT’S entertainment.

But this isn’t either of those. This blog is a cooperative effort by a few Community Relations professionals, and thus I would expect it to pretty much focus on those kinds of issues, especially relating to MMO’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if things went off track from time to time, of course.

But that’s what moderators are for.

I was glad to see you linked on Broken Toys today, I've been jonesing for a good community moderation blog since Everything in Moderation went inactive.

I recognize your handle from the CoH/CoV boards unless I'm mistaken, but who are your co-contributors?
