Salutations,

It's Wikia Wednesday, Norrathians! Where we blog about things...For reasons! So I'll get this started.

This last week and a half has been quite an emotional roller coaster for me. My new title as EverQuest 2 Community Manager, drops me into Norrath, a place I have so many memories of and has me "leaving" Auraxis. "Leaving" because I am not truly leaving. I am just no longer the Community Manager. I'll still be playing PlanetSide 2 to get my FPS fix and I'll be involved in lots of things like Friday Night Ops and Community Clash. I never realized how hard it would be to find the words to say goodbye and hello to a community. If you want to check out my hello and goodbye posts, they'll go over everything a bit more in depth.


So...Here I am! The New Community Manager of EverQuest 2. What does that mean? For me, it means, I am here to help grow and direct our player base into a conglomeration of what EverQuest 2 is all about! This includes EVERYONE - solo-ers, multi-boxers, dungeon groups, questers, crafters, interior decorators, trades brokers, raiders, PvPers and so on and so forth! I often see MMO communities get split up into tiny groups, but what a lot of people don't realize is that together...Together we are WAY more powerful. United, we make the game. Honestly, we do. Without us, the players, these games wouldn't exist.

What I want to see is all of us working together and if not agreeing, at least understanding one another. Let's work as one to build a better community where new people feel welcome and there's always something fun to do!

First of all, I want to go over what I generally do:

  • Reports - I scour the internet to aggregate analytic data
    • Daily
    • Weekly
    • Upon Development's Request
  • Forum Moderation and Duties
  • Social Media Engagment
    • Twitter
    • Facebook
    • G+
    • YouTube
    • TwitchTV Livestreams - NEW!!
  • News and Announcements
  • Articles
  • Events
    • SOE Live, etc


Beyond that, I want to do so much more! With a game like EverQuest 2, we have potential to create some really amazing stories together for all kinds of aspects of the game.

This is where I want your help! I usually end every blog with a question, but today, I have many questions! I'll be setting up a new livestream series, similar to Friday Night Ops if you've ever checked that out.

  • What kind of content would you like to see?
  • What day would be best for you to view the livestream/partake in it - Keep in mind it must be between Monday and Friday?
  • How often would you like to see these streams? Weekly, biweekly, monthly?
  • And last, but not least, what should we name the livestream!? :D


Here are some general ideas I have for the livestream segments:

  • Dev Spotlights
  • Content Spotlights
    • Throw Back Thursdays - Checking out old content
  • Guild Spotlights - Including all types: PvP, PvE, crafting, etc
  • Event Spotlights
  • Fansite Spotlights
  • Individual Player Spotlights
  • Discussion Panels
  • Guild Recruitment Videos
  • General Video Submission
  • Screenshot Submissions
  • Fanart Submission
  • Guide Program


Let me know what you think of my ideas and leave yours in the comments section below!


Good hunting,
