Emily's Mini-Journal

Welcome to my mini-journal, where I'll try to let you guys know what's up in my world! UserEmilyDiehlGrin.gif

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Well, today was a slightly eventful day for us! Now you see why I have been a bit hit and miss to catch on my talk page. We've been incredibly busy bees around here. Hopefully this tasty batch of info buys a pardon UserEmilyDiehlGrin.gif

I just wanted to pop in to update you guys and let you know that I plan to do a batch of renders very soon, so I'll be able to catch up on some of the requests you've put in. Again, if there is anything critical you guys really want for pages, jot down a note on my talk page.

I hope you're all having a great time with the War in Kryta stuff (more of that coming very soon), and the anniversary event. As a related note, we're loving the wiki skins for the Shining Blade and White Mantle! Very creative and cool, guys. Awesome work!

I'm off to get some food now, but I'll see you all very soon here with renders in hand. Have a great night!

Holy's been a really busy past few weeks! We've been cranking away at our War in Kryta stuff, and have been having a blast with it. It's extremely rewarding to see everyone rallying behind us, trying to figure out what's coming next. It's also really hard to keep quiet about the details, because we're having so much fun!!!! :X

I've been so excited about stuff, that I've pretty much had nonstop White Mantle and Shining Blade stuff in my brain. I went to the pet store last night to pick up food for my critters, and noticed the coolest looking betta fish I've ever seen. He was a bright cardinal red with gorgeous fins and a grumpy underbite. When I spotted him, he was busy trying to attack the betta in the next bowl over (even though the other guy wanted nothing to do with it). It was over for me, so now I have a rad new fish (I have no self control when it comes to animals, haha).

Introducing my new buddy, Dorian. CONFESSOR Dorian (if yer nasty...ugh reference from my early years ;)).

Anyways, enough silly from me tonight. I hope all of you are having fun seeing how things unveil! And if you're on Facebook, be sure to fan the White Mantle or the Shining Blade (or both if you just can't decide).

Have a most excellent night! UserEmilyDiehlGrin.gif

Well, I should probably be sleeping instead of writing this, but hey. I'm excited!

As you guys may have noticed from the main site, I've joined forces with Martin, Regina, and Stephane as a bonafide member of the community team. This is super exciting, and I'm really looking forward to helping out with more public things. Up until now, most of my job has been behind the scenes and in-studio, so it will be really cool to be able to spend more time here with you and on the forums. Weee!

Since some of you are curious and I've been getting questions about the topic, yes, I will still also be retaining my job as Content Manager/Web Producer. We're just shifting around some of the internal responsibilities I have so I'm able to effectively balance my time between those duties and my new community ones.

Don't worry...I'm still going to be doing the same work on the wikis as before, and I'll still be working on web stuff as well. If anything, I should actually have more time to get back into doing what I like the most - working with you guys here and talking to folks about Guild Wars. UserEmilyDiehlGrin.gif

Thanks for the welcomes! I'm extremely honored to have this new opportunity, and am really looking forward to getting my feet wet in my updated role!
