Hi Shaun!  I'm so happy for you!

I've been watching your YT videos for a while now and have always found your tutorials both informative and entertaining, and I know you love helping the community out with our many questions about how to achieve various goals with GMS, so this is going to be great news for everyone!

Just wanted you to know how welcome you are and that you're in good company!

give anyone and everyone here the chance to ask me anything about anything.

I'm going to be honest here, I had no idea Dan was our community manager. I know he organized a few Jams but I figured he just picked the short straw or YYG was just holding his parents hostage or something.

I have a rough idea of who you are and what you generally do. A few people have came to me for help and said something along the lines of "I did this Shaun Spaulding tutorial" and they're generally have a better understanding, so while I can't say I've ever watched your videos, the results I've seen from them make me think you know what you're doing with Game Maker.

I'm here to form an even stronger link between YoYo and the community (you guys). I want to know about all the cool stuff going on with our tool so I can shout about it and help us to provide all the support we can for you and your projects, events, and so on. I'll be paying very keen attention to what kind of things you guys need from us and helping to make sure we provide it.

This on the other hand, I have no idea what this means. It kinda sounds like you're a human twitter account who has been sent by The Mighty Lemming to slyly gather a consensus on what we want in Studio 2.0. So if you wouldn't mind, I'd like a bit of clarity on what exactly it is you do here now.

Just to clarify Nocturne's point a little. ShaunS is the overall community manager (and that will include the GMC), he will help bring people together and relay messages and information out from YoYo. What he's not is the GMC Admin, which is the day to day running of the forums. The mods/Admins around here to a great job of this and one person could never hope to do this, although his input into organisation will of course help improve the GMC over time.

 

So...the Community Manager is all about connecting people, helping them, and getting information out there.

That makes a lot of sense. I don't check the Announcements forum and I'm not on any social medias so that explains why I didn't notice Dan's work before him.

Honestly, does it really matter either way?

Does it matter in the slightest what gender or skin color the YYG staff are? I mean, apart from humans being the same on the inside, you won't even see the staff since they're in front of their computer screens all the time.
