    However it will be very fun to realize if they do change something with this "discovery". Paradigms in biology change like every 50 years, which is like whole geologic eras when compared to other disciplines.

    On topic: what is so terrible about this community manager? If I remember correctly, they just post stuff on social media and that's it. Sure, he's a Bioware guy, but who cares

    Community Manager is a job you should be embarrassed to have at his age.

    He gets paid to sit down all day and doesn't have to do anything particuarly demanding. Better than doing it for free.

    lame fat joke is lame and unnecessary.
    i am genuinely curious whether he actually gets to work on the game, which should be largely finished by this time anyhow, or is just spewing shit to inflate his own ego.

    Saying Priestly is in charge of Community Management is like saying a Garbage man is in charge of Sanitation and Waste Management..

    No this is just something people who sit near success say to themselves to feel inclusive.. (inb4 INCLOOOSIVE)

    He is not a developer, designer or artist. He deletes dick posts from TheWitcher forum.. thats all.. They probably send him an email every month of what to talk about.. they may give him unreleased images to post on twitter and want to tap into his neck beard fanbase.

    He is now affiliated with smart people who do high quality work.. but he doesn't crack open his dev suite and start helping with implementation and design work. He just gets to feel like he's a part of it because from the outside looking in it seems he is now contributing to the game. I would be surprised if his name even makes the credits.

    As the original person said, you should be embarrassed to be a community manager at this age. It's like working at a call center at 40. He's not a PR agent, not in marketing, not contributing to the games completion. He is literally paid to read and moderate a forum.

    you requoting that doesn't make it any less stupid. no job is something to be embarrassed at. you're still working instead of being a social parasite (whether intentional or due to circumstance), and saying shit like that is the same level of retarded as "you should be embarrassed to play games at your age". not to mention that he gets paid to do marginally more than he might have been doing as part of his hobby anyways. community manager is a pretty sweet job (at least as long as you have thick skin, which i am sure no former bioware employee does, and it pays your bills). doesn't change the fact that equating it with actually working on the game, as he did, is just plain retarded.

    I'm 99% sure that on the old BioWare forums he dissed The Witcher and its immature attitude to sex compared to the moral superiority of BioWare.

    I've seen some passive-aggressive mod posts about CDProjekt and their games on BSN, but not outright insults or hostility. Sadly, Bioware now has new forums, and I can't find even those old posts.

    Hey, don't diss community managers, they have a pretty vital role. I mean, the devs could read and moderate the forums themselves, but if they distance themselves from the community with these hired guys, it's important for them to be competent. Imagine a butthurt CM at inxile for example, cherry picking good arguments for rtwp combat to send to the devs and ignoring the TB ones.

    I don't remember seeing any anti-CD Prod posts from Bioware people, but I barely even view that forum anymore. There was a time when a former CD Projekt person and that one QA guy had a friendly chat about Witcher 2 http://forum.bioware.com/topic/433687-now-im-playing-the-witcher-2/page-10#entry13680876

    You have the wrong person, seriously.

    Priestly's very 3D Realms.
