Yup. That's the story.
And really, that's about all there is to say right now until I know more.
Ok. I lie. I can say a little and trip the keyboard fantastic.
You know, Cz has done some great work on the Anarchy Online community. I know. I saw it. I was there, bucko. But lately it seems to me as if he was bogged down with anything and everything. And then some. The forums, when graced with The Official Word, were palmed off with a standard "Email your opinions to firstname.lastname@example.org", and the only original responses evolved out of patch issues from the 1-every-3-months patch or bulletin board bannings. The Professional program was at a standstill for a record time, and after only just showing some signs of life with a feeble kick, this outcome certainly doesn't look to get the pulse doing those fancy spikes on the beep! beep! machine.
But there's only so much one man can do. And the rolling snowball, gathering bigger and bigger these past months with Cz firmly planted inside, his beanie and mittens thrown off long ago, has finally come to rest.
And naturally, the Anarchy Online community is left with semi-constructed sentences of "Wha..?", "Huh..?" and "Er...". Where is Cz heading off to? Where is this exiting future for Funcom that Cz mentions? Is Cz going to work with Marius within the company he left Funcom for? Who is the new Community Manager, and is he/she up to speed? Does anybody eat lutefisk?
Rest easy, little bookworms. I have scoured the Inter-Net thingy to bring you a scoop. Yes, a scoop. No one else has this, because no one else is the fine home of investigative journalism that I is. Er. Am.
Commence the scoopment;
I am heading back to Funcom as the new Community Manager, whose identity is a pleasant surprise.
Oh, come on. You didn't really believe that, did you?
