Things for Historian to meditate on

i-person-300x300It is Sunday, a time to meditate. Buddha said : “Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”  So, Historian :

On a personal and a professional  level you are qualified to be our G. Manager ?

You listen what customers are saying ?

Do you keep on listening, responding, informing, and connecting  in a right manner the folks ?

Do you understand the community’s position, the marketplace and communicate that in such a way that customers don’t feel they are being fed a line  ?

Do you know the difference between a vocal critic and a curmudgeonly troll ? Did you ever try to help the troll before remove it ?

Do you promote the right people from the community?

Are you the advocate for the customer while being able to discern what is realistic ahead of time ?

Do you have public, spontaneous conversations; sometimes shiny happy ones, sometimes trickier ones with the community  ?

Do you know and understand the tools that fulfill community needs ?

Do you have the right empathy for who you are communicating with, including us the gamers ?

Are you a “meaning” maker ?

In your replies to the community you see any passion?

Have you ever  push new boundaries ? How you educate the community ? Where is the education part you bring ?

Are you comfortable to be the face and voice of Acclaim ?

What rules you follow?

What community scored under your guidance ?
.
Historian all I see now in you is arrogance that will led to its demise. What I pointed above is the situational awareness of a community manager. I hope Historian will reflect on it.

  1. for my point of view the answer to those questions would be a ‘big’ NO.

    “What rules you follow?”

    his own. he has not rules to follow.

    “What community scored under your guidance ?”

    grief and holding backs. our voice is not heard.

  2. From time to time a meditation on the things we have done or want to do is necessary. I think Historian biggest flaw is the fact he was never ahead of his time. Ironic he calls his avatar Historian.

  3. history repeats herself… i remember that sed said once that.

    ‘What community scored under your guidance ?’
    00000000000000000000000000000000000000

  4. Historian with community is like tuxedo with sport shoes.

    “You listen what customers are saying ?”
    You pointed good. If you don’t pay for coins you are not a customer just an ordinary player.If you pay and become customer you are still treat like a ordinary player. It is not difference, but support is a pay one.

    “Do you have public, spontaneous conversations; sometimes shiny happy ones, sometimes trickier ones with the community ?”

    He is boring.
