Greetings, members of the BGC community!
As it stands, I don’t think the current staff members are listed anywhere convenient; that is definitely something we have to change at one point. But until then, an announcement will do!
You are no doubt familiar with Nolan, the one responsible for this place existing at all. He is the one that had a dream about what a VI gaming community done right could look like and has through these last couple months gradually been getting closer towards making it a reality; and we’re very close now indeed!
In short, he’s the boss around here. But any dictator, even a benevolent one, needs enforcers. This one is still looking for volunteers, but until then, he has two.
I am the first. Some of you might already know me from other places; I was a moderator on Survive the Wild at an age where I could hardly ban the mess from my own bedroom, much less do community management. Whether or not my skill has improved since then is debatable, but I must be doing something right, because I currently also help out on a Mastodon instance, a wiki-like project called Trunk, a couple Discord servers and, least importantly, a Twitch channel.
What can I promise you? I can promise that I will try to be the sort of admin that nips drama in the bud, rather than waiting about with a scythe. I can’t promise to be the most active poster around, but when I do post, I will do my best to be helpful and interesting. But most importantly, I will make sure that it is always us that will be nipping drama in the bud, and us that will be helpful and interesting. Because while there are certainly already small things we don’t agree with – like all those buttons in the settings menu that I can only barely resist pressing (sorry, Nolan!) – this is still a team and I am proud to be a part of it.
What’s that? You mean if I’m so fond of being in a team, I should stop talking about myself already and tell you who the second admin is? Alright, alright! The second admin still has that new book smell around him, only having joined yesterday, but I have a feeling he might not require nearly as much introduction … Please raise your glasses of preferred beverage and welcome …
