Apparently Mark Jacobs agrees with me on the GOA situation.

Here are a few excerpts from Mr. Jacobs’ blog about IainC from GOA: “I have read IainC’s post on the situation and I have just communicated to GOA my thoughts on it.  I’ll simply say this, I do not agree with what he said, I do not support what he said and his comments were, in my opinion, way out of line.”

Mark, I’m totally with you on the fact that a customer service rep should never, ever, no matter what the situation, call out a customer on any wrongdoing. That stuff can be taken care of through a different avenue, like forum mods. What IanC wrote was unprofessional in the highest sense of the meaning. His post has basically taken what was a crappy situation and turned into the biggest flame post I’ve ever witnessed in all of my time on any forum in history.

Now I’m not defending any of the death threats, racial epithets, or downright mean posts; but there are just better ways to take care of forum trolls.

In case you were wondering, here is a link to IainC’s post in its entirety.

Mark Jacobs has a new blog, talks about one of my heroes Curt Schilling.

So I was surfing the Warhammer community sites and found a link to mark jacobs’ blog. In it he talks about how Curt Schilling said some nice things about the Warhammer cinematic. In case you didn’t know, Curt Schilling is a world champion major league baseball player with a penchant for mmos. Curt Schilling basically single handedly led the Boston Red Sox to a world series title with one bloody sock and some hard work. And oh by the way, in his spare time he raids in WoW.  That’s so cool on so many levels.

 

Ok, back to Mark Jacobs. He is the lead designer for Warhammer as I’m sure you know. And he has a blog? Where i can comment? Mark Jacobs, and basically everyone at Mythic, has this strange habit of actually talking to the community on a consistant basis. This makes me think that Warhammer is going to be a long lasting, fufilling game.
