Foundry Staff Changes

Postby MrBenn on Sun Apr 19, 2009 3:49 am

Ahoy Ahoy Foundry Folks,

Some sad news and some not-so-sad news. Lets start with the sad. Our beloved Cartography Assistant in the Foundry, Oaktown, will be stepping out of his Blue Shoes, resigning from his Position as C.A. and as Team member of Team CC. Oaktown has volunteered countless hundreds and hundreds of hours in the Foundry and on Team CC related activities over the past 16 months. Oaktown's Leadership in the Foundry has certainly crafted it to be what it is today---a thriving machine producing quality maps.

Oaktown, you were a fantastic Leader in the Foundry and will be missed.

While we are losing a CA, the not-so-sad news is that the the ranks of the Foundry Staff are growing! Some of our faithful Foundry contributors are currently being recruited and trained up as Foundry Assistants to help follow foundry threads and stamp maps. The Foundry continues to get busier, with more maps in the system than ever before... it is our hope to maintain the level of quality we have come to expect while keeping the process moving quickly and smoothly.

To this end, and without further ado, please give a warm welcome to:

    thenobodies80, who will be primarily working in the drafting room
    Incandenza, who will continue to be focusing on gameplay in the main foundry
    wcaclimbing, who will be wielding the graphics stamp and training others how to use it
    the.killing.44, who will be concentrating on maps that have entered the final forge
    TaCktiX, who will assess maps in the Beta phase before they are fully released into Live Play.
The work of the Foundry Assistants will add eyes and ears to each stage of the foundry process, supporting the work of the Foundry Moderators. These are exciting times to be working in the Foundry - other new staff members will be announced as they are confirmed, and there are always further developments lurking around the corner... :-$

Happy Bananas (etc. etc.)

This is sad :(

Sad to see one of the greatest C.A's leave, i hope you will still hang around the foundry and CC for that matter oaktown ;)

Also Congrats to the new stamp lickers i'm sure you will all do a great job :) I'm sure you will all make the process more streamline and have a better flow. I look forward to the Foundry churning out the best maps the site has ever seen in the days, months and years ahead =D>

Probably wise Oak. Too much of this place can take it's toll on a person. At least you're sticking around. Congrats to all you others for your willingness to officially help out around here :)

If we all saw eye-to-eye on everything, we wouldn't have the criticism required to make good maps. thanks for the kind words cairnswk... i look forward to seeing you get back on the map horse.
