18-10-10, 11:22
Actually, shouldn't you be more concerned with bringing us TR9 Jay? :mis:


And does this mean that this was solely your idea/appointment Justin and the other moderators amicably agreed? :p

Seems not everyone happy with me helping around the place, not sure why, people seem to think just cos i work here means anything `anti square/eidos` is gonna be instant edit/delete by me, i can assure you thats definitely not going to be the case.. if i wasnt able to take criticism or anger/scepticism aimed towards where i work i wouldnt have lasted here 13 years..

So will the title stay as "Eidos plc"?

I did wonder if that shouldnt say Square now actually :)

That's clearly coming from people who only know you for working at Eidos and not for the Tomb Raider fan that you are! Maybe if they communicated more with you, they wouldn't feel so threatened by it! :confused:

2 minutes ago it still said Eidos PLC... Unless I'm losing it.

Oh, it just changed. As a moderator, do you have the power to change your own title?

well would say u technically a bigger fan then me ;) i just the lucky git who works here :)

i aint fussed on other peoples opinions of me. :) if they misunderstand my position etc then its not due to me miscommunicating it :)

I don't get it, why are some people not happy with this? I never really talked with you but you seem very nice and fair and you always have something good to say. I am really happy you're our new mod, even though I thought (because of the title :o) you already have some powers. :vlol: But I was wrong. :p Good luck! :D

Congrats Jaywalker! :)

I understand why some people are reacting like they did, because many members find this forums independency from Eidos/Square very important. But when the admin and all moderators have agreed, then Im sure there is nothing to worry about lol. :o

I think he is more of a member (a kind and loyal one) who happens to work at Eidos, instead of an Eidos employee who is also a member.

Im sure you will do great Jay! :tmb:

Such a shame a lot of people don't see this though, they just see Eidos and then instantly see red and imagine there's a load of corruption going on! :(

I trust the judgment of this decision. The hierarchy have obviously thought it through and concluded that it would work, and still maintain the necessary independent viewpoint and intellectual discourse of this place.

It could however place him (and the forum) in an awkward position. His interactions and moderating actions will be scrutinized and evaluated by some of the members differently than they would the other mods, and rightfully so. He has an economic interest in the success of the brand, and there is no getting around that. Not to mention that the product is his work, and one must take pride in that regardless of what others may think or feel.

But as for me, I wish him the best. He has given me no reason to doubt his sincerity and integrity. Congratulations! :)

I agree. I have also met Jay in person, I can also say that he is the soundest guy you could ever know. People shouldn't be worried, because that is just silly. I wish him all the best, and congrats! :D

i totally understand your viewpoint and as i've said many times before i do hope people actually do see me more as a person then just an Eidos `employee`. i've been on this forum since AOD when i took the flack then for the title and answered questions where and when i could, and i've never left since.. even during quiet times and pre release pandemonium i've remained.

I know i will be scrutinised closely, but thats for me to worry about ensuring i dont do anything dumb/stupid/outragous/unfair isnt it? :) i hope i am judged on my actions and not on peoples assumptions :)

Probably they never had a chance to know this.
It did say eidos_plc under the username, open to misinterpretations.

I think to long ago have understood Jay is here as a private person, not some Eidos representative, but that was most probably by accident that I learned so.

Maybe moderators could have a topic where they introduce themselves a bit ? What about the TRF magazine, is it still in the works ? Then maybe that would be a good place to have some small interview with Jay and Dennis' mom ?

Anyways, I think jaywalker will do fine as moderator. :tmb:
My only concern is that in any Eidos-TRF-conspiracy confusion he will be the one suffering / unjustly attacked.

I am Very Happy Jay is a Mod. :hug:

Next Up Keir. :p

I think Keir is here as an Eidos representative (?), if so then absolutely NO!, please.
