A couple of days ago Bethesda hired a new Community Manager
. What does that mean you ask?
My name is Matt Grandstaff. Yesterday I started as the community manager for Bethesda Softworks. Basically I'm going to be working with you guys and help communicate your thoughts, ideas, criticisms, etc with the folks at the office, while becoming an active member of this community.
You'll see me in these boards, as well as other fan communities for Bethesda games.
I really look forward to talking with you guys and helping to improve our community...it's going to be a lot of fun.
Getting payed to post on a forum? What a job!
With a new Community Manager the community and Bethesda will have more contact with each other. Gstaff (the new CM) has posted in threads discussing ideas for a new DLC, threads complaining about how the Xbox 360 doesn't have a patch yet, etc. He just posted a thread with a link to a site with all the spell codes in the spoilers and cheats section. Why? .... Why not? It's useful. Another example is a thread in which he showed that PES had new mod news. People regularly check PES so it wasn't really useful, but it's the idea of Bethesda chatting with the community and promoting unofficial mods that counts! Yup, so far it looks like a very good move on Bethesda's side.
And thanks to Abramul for telling me about this good news.
