Hello Players,

You can call me Tadaaah. I am proud to join the GREE team as your Community Manager. We really want to turn things around and listen to our players and interact with all of you more regularly. Change is coming and I canít wait to embrace it all with you and help create for you an engaging atmosphere. Please keep in mind that we are just getting started and change will be slow, but we are going to start being more active here in the forums and on social media. Get ready to start looking for more official feedback threads and surveys. As part of my introduction, Iíve answered a few questions for you to get to know me.

How long have you been playing video games?
I started playing video games at an early age around 3. My mother was in a bowling league where I spent all of my time in the arcade. I grew up playing Samurai Showdown, Fatal Fury, Gauntlet, and many other arcade games. My first console was the Nintendo; a few of my favorites from that time are Kickle Kubicle and Spy VS Spy.

Where were you before joining the GREE team?
Before joining the GREE team, I worked at a few other gaming companies. A few of the titles I have worked on are WAKFU, FFXIV, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition.

What do you bring to the GREE team?
I am an ambitious person with a lot of passion. With my past experiences building communities, I am hoping to help build a great and welcoming atmosphere for players to come and share experiences.

What do you do outside of gaming?
I played a lot of sports growing up. I am really enjoying our local adult dodge-ball league. I enjoy a good time with friends playing board/tabletop games as well.

What is your favorite GREE game?
Rage of the Immortals is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I really enjoy that there are stories to follow and evolving/training fighters. The art-style is nostalgic for me.

Which character were you when you played Gauntlet? ;) What was the first arcade game you played that cost more than a quarter? More than a dollar? Which one would you empty an entire $20 bill on?

Tadaaah

I do enjoy Black Sabbath.

I always played with the yellow character. I don't remember what my first arcade game was but it was a quarter, fifty cents I would guess was a pinball machine, a dollar for DDR, and I would drop so much money in crane games.

PlayStation
PC Specs? Oh my...well I'm building a rig. I'll let you know once I finally get it finished.
Food: Cherries
Drink: Not forum appropriate, jk, I drink a lot of water.
Sweet: I'm a sucker for chips and dip. I will sit and eat all the dip if there's some in front of me. I once had a friend take the bowl away to make sure there was some left for other people.

Welcome aboard Tadaaah. Hope you can funnel some of the ideas/comments/criticism here in a constructive way back to Gree. U might want to look through the suggestions/feedback forum topic and put together a new poll of what players would like added/changed in the game.

@ Tadaaah: Why are you listed as Administrator instead of Community Manager? Some of us newbies might get all confoozled by that difference... ;)

Glad to see GREE answered my community administration request :)

Glad to have you, hope that the community forum will be a more friendly and enjoyable than before :)

I would also like to request a suggestion board for each game forum so people can start topics on their suggestions and others can debate on the pros and cons of the suggestion?

Have you tried PMing (Private Messaging) Tadaaah?

So, about that Criminal Legacy forum?

And what about the Cyclops contest? The thread was locked and no winner was announced. We appreciate these contests because you don't have to do them...

...but the last contest upset some people because, even though it said no submission that didn't follow the rules would be considered, and yet all of the finalists were people who did not follow the rules.

And now there is an issue with this contest. I think we just want you guys to make good on what you say you're gonna do, is all.

So when will I be announced as the winner?

Tadaaah, when we click "New Posts" would it be possible for each new thread to be identified by section, so players can see what games those threads belong to, and decide if they want to answer of not?

It could be accomplished quite easily without taking up space by shortening the section/game to an acronym: CC for Crime City, K&D for Knights and Dragons, and so forth, so we don't have to guess. I've seen this done on other game forums that use vBulletin, so I know it's possible.

What do you say? :) I can post a pic if you need me to explain what I mean.

Tad hasn't commented in his/her own thread in almost two weeks.

You're slipping, Tad. I know you got a bunch of games to deal with.

Is it busy work, being a community manager?

Rookeye

There's been an uproar of sorts over at Crime City all week (player-induced). Perhaps Tadaaah is busy putting out fires elsewhere... :)

Hey Tad,
You have sort of disappeared. Any feedback to the group on the survey results. Can you please give us any info on whats going on at Gree with K&D? Any chance you could create a poll of most requested enchancements/changes to the game. There have been a lot of really good ideas posted here. RAID BOSS for guild PLEASE!!!

The most recent update on the seventeenth of June now doesn't allow most players to even start the game anymore. It just crashes. Having sunk many days into this game, I'd like to know when it will be fixed. That is my question to you.

Uninstall and reinstall.

GREE addressed this immediately, derp.



Please re-install the game

I'm not sure; it would be on the backend (probably server side). This is the first time I've worked with the backend of VBulletin. If it involves coding, I can only do very little coding, we'd have to discuss with the other teams.

This is a visual:

I've identified all the different board sections where these "show new" threads come from. There is no way for a new Kingdom Age player to click only those links that apply to his chosen game, he must click them all. :(

I came here from another VBulletin game community where they DID show sections. PM me if you want to discuss further. I believe VBulletin does have a setting switch to show this information (spelled out, of course: Crime City, not CC...though you might be able to designate acronyms. That's more than I know.)
