The big scene : Acclaim

Community_PileUp_biggerThe team which is behind Acclaim is David Perry team from Game Consultants. Video talents in the world…consultants, “bla bla, bla” (sing). The people who wants to help you manage or develop your game. I bet they have a big “portfolio” to show : “Ponystars”, “MyDivaDoll”,” RushFigthers”, “Rock Free”… “9dragons” anyone? Yes, they are behind any move that Acclaim does. The team :

I will add Marks Howard.

David DeWald aka Historian try to advise others when he can’t even handle 9Dragons community. Let’s not forget Historian post on his blog. He said : you don’t need a destination, you have a journey. Serious ? Do you have have any idea what means to conduct a community ? What about $$$ for destination?

I think you have no idea, because you have no quality and no professional education to do it. What was Historian before coming to Acclaim and become community manager ? His curriculum vitae shows it :

http://www.linkedin.com/in/historian

He was a web developer to a HR company, IT web administrator, graphic designer and so on. Not even close to public relations or community manager. I have a question mark, base on his education. He wrote : ” EDUCATION : AUTODIDACT”. Afraid to show the studies? If there are some. I don’t see a university degree, a bachelor degree not even a minimum training on “community management” field. Because I work in same field, before I ask a company to advice my company on “gaming” for example, I would ask the CVs of all people who will be involve in the project.

Now we have to understand why Acclaim official team it is how it is. He is recruiting people inferior to his education. Why? Because he is afraid of competition and that some people actually will not be in agreement with him. Because of his inferior complex the measure of banning the author of this site was necessary. For the “low class” was consider a success but for “finest people” is consider a disaster. If you have an analytic sense you all know what I mean.

Because Historian can’t get enough of his IT “gadgets” , instead of reviewing a book on community management, he reviews a Mobile Messaging Device. Your Acclaim bosses know that you make a commercial to a non-Acclaim product ? Or you get it for free just to make the ad? If I would be Fried Fierst I would add that in your contract with Acclaim. Congratulation on Historian, instead of reading a book or take a training session on how to manage the community he bought a phone to manage it.

Back to Acclaim people, what I find interesting are the donations to  political campaigns from Mark Howard and David Perry. Their political views are not the same. I know that in America companies makes lobby for certain ‘services’. It is well know the double game. People from same company enters in 2 different teams to ensure a better lobby.

  1. i was surfing all day for this. all i can say : wow. vennus9d you gather many informations.

    “Congratulation on Historian, instead of reading a book or take a training session on how to manage the community he bought a phone to manage it.”

    PWNED.

    politic? didn’t know.

  2. Well compared to the Aion team from NCsoft all those persons including GM’s that moderate 9d are amateurs.

    Only trying to shake more money down from the players.

    • Yes, they are amateurs and this ‘amateur’ air will bring them down. I told in many of my lines : you need people with professional skills to build and maintenance.

  3. Ouch, this will hurt Historian : a low profile web administrator who become community manager and make low profile slaves to serve him. No specialty in public relation?

    Can I put this on others forums, non Acclaim ? Thanks.

  4. lol vennus, you browse surf gov. net pages.who give the tip ? good job on this. can you give more information on Historian private life ? find the divorce papers ? anything will do.

    what Historian studied ?

    • When you want to make a search on web pages about a certain person or company you need to know the ‘key-figures’ and characteristics of a person and entity. The search is very easy. From one lead you go to another.

      O_O Historian divorce? Want to know the goods/money/custody separation ? Or?

  5. Ding dang. I heard some bells yesterday. Bets were made : vennus will write or not write. I won it : she did it. vennus9d thank you. Another bomb felt. Someone said in here something like that. Learn out a lot from this post.

  6. thanks for the informations. what a shock. MJ kids affair ? i never thought about Historian that way, but anything can be possible.

  7. For the person who post as VGM[Olix], not the real one, the spammer, your comment is listed in the spamm section because of your IP, I tell you this : you see nobody did this before. The dragon has awaken and this is just the beginning.

  8. political donations. i don’t think you knew it Enforcer. vennus said : the dragon is awaking and this is just the start. i didn’t know Historian was divorced ‘ Pandora box’ or he was a web admin.

  9. it is not important who i am, important is he is divorce so means a failure in personal life. i voiced my opinion why, it is forbidden ?

    it is not personal, it is public.

  10. Historian is a public guy from Acclaim. His personal life can be claim by the community. I don’t think a guy with a personal screw life is the best example for a game community where 70-80 % of the players are kids. Ponystar, MyDivaDoll are kids games and he manage the relation with the community of kids. How can he do it right when he screw up his own life and could not make things better for his kids? Sets an example.

  11. WTF Chick what you are saying is based on nothing. My parents are divorced for 15years now and there is no problem. Both have been good to me.

    Also his personal life has nothing to do with the community. If he was a marriage couslor then it would be weird yes. But he isn’t so this has nothing to do with his job.

    Also who said he is traumatized. You are just making things up you see yourself in hollywood movies and tv series.

    So stop with your make up story and come with ice cold hard facts.

    Also this part:
    ( and where is put all together? where is all of this written? nowhere.)

    Doesn’t change the fact that it’s public knowledge for years. Also if it was written nowhere it could have never been posted here. So just stop with your useless comments and use your brain before making your next one.

    • if vennus9d would not post the links would not be proofs.yes it is public and base on that vennus9d told the story. i use my brain : it is post anywhere only here all in one place.

      what makes a child happy is emotional safety. when emotional balance is ensured, when unconditionally loved and valued, the child will develop harmoniously. and yes I believe many of the kids from net are the product of a divorce.

      i believe Historian job has a big deal in this issue. how can you be a good example of game manager of a kids game when you are divorced ?

    • Because they have no other thing to attack him, so they have to bring his personal life into this. ‘Lonely life’ lolz .. are you actually living next to him and see what he has gone through a daily life? … Maybe he already went through one divoirce, now he wants to enjoy his single life more. That is his choice. Also, donate to whoever politics is also his choice. He isn’t represented acclaim to donate. I donate to McCain, and my sister donate to Obama. So by what you’ve said, we try to get benefit from both parties? … lolz …

      • As long as you don’t scan your ID card and post the link to donations I presume you lie. You can donate as ANN person, but was not the case.

        Historian life… Now I am near a screen and all I see is a pathetic virtual life relation. In my next post I will show why he is not qualify from moral point of view to be a game community manager.
