In my experience, similar policies about not discussing moderation exist for nearly all 'official' game specific forums, both game company or third party operated. Not saying it is the best mode of operation, but it is what it is.

Folks from here probably don't spend a bunch of time on 'official' game forums, and that probably just demonstrates superior judgment.

Yes, clearly, she had no prior experience or job skills at all, and did a horrible job that anyone could have done better. Like, say, you.
Man you're sensitive to every offhand tweety mention! I didn't comment on her job performance, just that her previous exposure to the community was calling players a bunch of nutless buttmunchers, or something of the kind. Which is scarily quite close to Schild's qualifications.

And no, I would never seek a CM position. Eating bees, etc. Seems masochistic.

Yeah, Tweety had a website where she bitched about stuff.  I seem to recall that she worked in the industry before that though.

Tweety, however Lum wants to defend her, had internet social skills to rival Milo and his "My Porsche needs repairs so keep paying your 10 bucks."  spiel.  Her rants on Biting the Hand usually were centered around how stupid everyone else was.  She, possibly, wasn't as bad as Myschyf as far as being instantly acerbic but hardly someone who I would look at and go, "Man, she'd be a great CSM."

Otherway around, I believe.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

No, I know her stint on DAOC was after Biting the Hand.  But I think she started Biting the Hand after having been working in the industry.

Hey now, I have an f13 face and a non-f13 face. Some people can't compartmentalize. Young women, in particular, have this problem. I, however, am pretty much a master at it. If need be, I could die myself and you would never know, I'd animate my corpse and my corpse would be happy like nothing ever happened. I may be dead right now - and eating a PVP players brain. But you wouldn't know. Because I'm awesome.

She started the blog after having worked as an unpaid EQ guide. I remember hearing that she worked in some sort of PR before that, but not in gaming or community relations directly.

Of course you can compartmentalize. I'm a vicious bastard on the internet but completely professional in my real job. Except for posting on messageboards during long boring conference calls, anyway.

My point was some people can't. Some people take shit to their real job, some people talk like a forum poster in real life, and some people can't be a CRM because of not recognizing differences between clientele.

AO had a volunteer program in-game called ARK (Advisors of Rubi-Ka).

I was an ARK. (I think the program almost certainly violated the law fwiw.) One of the reasons ARK worked was that AO players by and large were mature intelligent adults. At least when I played, community was one of the strongest aspects of the game. There wasn't a lot of stupid to gather in.

I can't imagine doing a similar job greeting people in Conan, much less trying to deal with the forums. Conan might be the first game to really truly challenge WOW for immaturity. My guess is that "mature" content, being in truth adolescently naughty not mature, actually attracts mainly immature people.

Sure, and some people get tattoos on their face. Some people were born to wash my windshield and scrub my toilet. Hey, someone has to do it!

Yeah, I posted somewhere else that Funcom is providing her with a crapload of material should she choose to go into it. I'm really curious to read what she thinks about Funcom's CS practices. (Hint, hint Tweety if you're reading)

I'm pretty sure you have her confused with Jessica Mulligan.

And Sanya (who hasn't been called 'Tweety' in almost a decade) has internet social skills so superior to mine that I constantly had her check my blog posts to see if I was making an ass of myself. She also was perfectly capable of being extremely professional to a customer on the phone one moment and ranting about something else profanely enough to blister paint the next.

As is hopefully obvious I'm not unbiased. I keep trying to get her hired but she keeps refusing to move.

Lum is correct I have Sonya Thomas and Jessica Mulligan confused.
