An update from OP's management regarding improvements to the site.
Dear OP community,
As we move towards the end of March, Obsidian Portal continues to be a vital
and expanding gaming site - and one that we intend to see grow from strength-to-strength.
It’s been an up and down year of watching, learning, implementing, and getting a handle on the site.
Based on the community feedback, the input from members of the Inner Council, and our observations, we’ve made some additional changes to help OP continue to grow and thrive.
These changes include the following:
1) We’ve parted ways with AaSamspon as an “official” member of the OP staff and thank him for his efforts in February and March. We wish him the best of luck in his other endeavors and look forward to seeing him around the community.
We are in the process of recruiting a new community/customer support manager. If you or someone you know might be interested in this role, check the next comment following this post for details.
2) andreww38: Having been actively involved in OP's operations since December, Andrew has asked to take on roles within other projects, and will be stepping down as operations manager at the end of March (though he will still be active as an OP user and will also help serve as Kaleidoscope's "eyes and ears"). Andrew has done a tremendous job in driving OP to the next level and bridging any gaps at OP!
3) Since the beginning of March, Kaleidoscope's Chief Technology Officer, John Hudak, has become actively engaged with the OP infrastructure, improving OP's code base, and technical operations.
Our pool of programmers has also been reorganized so that code fixes, and new features will have a higher level of stability, reducing the frequency of errors, function failures. John’s background (12 years at Microsoft, a additional half-dozen years running huge e-commerce infrastructure and development efforts, and his passion for the gaming community) bring a new level of critical thinking and execution to the team.
The technical team is now working on optimizing OP's core code to create THE quality gaming experience for all OP users (but especially Ascendant users).
4) We appreciate your continued support, patience, and candid feedback. Feedback is always welcome. Ping Andrew at [email protected]
with any suggestions, feedback on what you would like to at OP, or to volunteer to be a member of the newly created testing task-force.
5.) We’d like to mention also, that KillerVP has accepted an appointment to the Inner Council to help keep OP on the right track. Welcome to the team!
The OP Management Team
