New Additions to the Foundry Team

Postby AndyDufresne on Mon Sep 17, 2007 10:43 pm

Ahoy Ahoy Foundry Members,


First off let me apologize fo my absence in the Foundry. I’ve had a few hectic days, but I hope to be back on track within a day! That said...lets get down to business!

As many of you know, the Foundry has been an interesting place the last couple of months. We’ve got new XML features, loads of new maps, and a variety of thought provoking discussions. But the newness isn’t stopping there.

Fortunately for Keyogi (though unfortunately for the Foundry and CC), his professional and family lives are taking a more prominent role. Thus Keyogi will be stepping down as a C.A. for now, though he hopes to pop in from time to time to comment and look over the latest maps.

But in saying goodbye to Keyogi we can say hello to two new C.A.’s! Both Cairnswk and Coleman have graciously accepted C.A. positions and will be joining the Foundry Team. They’ll be splitting Keyogi’s old duties, plus any new things I can come up with to keep them busy.

So Foundry, say Ahoy Ahoy to Cairnswk and Coleman! Now get back to working on the maps. ;)



--Andy

I don't know what to say about this, other than "Whew!" Maybe now we can get the focus back on mapmaking around here.

"I'll take 'Map Foundry' for 400, Alex."

"And here's the clue: this is the only thing that could possibly slow the prodigious cartographic output of cairnswk."

"Um, what is, being made a moderator?"

"Correct!"

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Congrats, guys. Hopefully you guys will be just as talented as administrators as you are as cartographers.

Care to elaborate?

To everyone else, thank you for the support. Hopefully we can all work well together. Feel free to direct poll deletion requests directly at me. I'm pretty quick with that sort of thing and I check the site maybe 8-10 times a day.

I for one think this is a terrible decision. I really think that DiM has really desevered his right to be CA, also since I really like Cairns and Coleman, I think one of them should go replace AK as a regular mod.


that's all. I pick coleman to replace AK because he frequents the other parts more.

either way congrats guys.

I do believe his real work got notched up, and he's raking in the big bucks. ;) He said he'd still check in from time to time, so I assume he'll wander back...I know Dim will miss him, and he will miss Dim. ;)

I dont think that DiM wanted to be a mod. He probably turned it down if they asked him.
