Hello everyone,

It's a great pleasure for me to announce that our
Foundry Assistants are: The Bison King and ironsij0287. :)

After a short period to familiarize with the new role, The Bison King and ironsij0287 will come in full force to give a hand to Industrial Helix, in fact their primary task will be to keep the Drafting Room flowing.
They will help the mapmakers to follow the right way during the earlier stage of the map development and they'll also keep an eye to the ideas subforum to see if something good pops out.


Please remember that the Foundry Assistant are here to help ONLY with the mapmaking process (i.e. move topics, stamp maps).
So, if you have any map-related issues or questions, please contact one of the Cartographers.

Nobodies

congrats guys.

i'm just wondering, why will they take care of the map ideas? why not put them in the main foundry? 1 CA+2FAs seems like overkill for a subforum that barely gets 3-4 posts per day. instead we might profit from their skills in the main foundry where they could go from map to map and give feedback analyse etc.

I have a counter opinion. Perhaps it was simply because there were less attempted avenues in my time, but map ideas used to be the most active forum in the foundry. More CA presence and encouragement there could help jump-start a (needed in my opinion) revolution in that section. Of course it won't correct some, perhaps greater, problems I feel I am viewing right now, but I will simply present my evidence on Thursday and see what course of action, if any, everyone will wish to pursue at that time.

Regardless, congratulations. I hope this will be both an exciting and positive time.

EDIT: Actually given how past Thursdays have gone I may be ... incapacitated. Perhaps Friday morning.
