I hear this a lot, and it always puts me in a fine pickle of a situation where I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. You won't ever believe me if I say something positive when you want to hear something negative, now will you? Anyway, I founded the 2K Games community in 2006 and since then, I've consistently had the mandate where we are always honest. If there came a day when I didn't agree with 2K Games, or they weren't letting me do what I thought was right and fair, I would leave. (Now, I don't expect you to believe *that* either, but them's the breaks, huh? ) Now, this isn't to say we always bring good news, or have every answer everyone wants - but when I was hired, the idea was to create a community where we have an open dialogue, represent you guys, the gamers, and always tell the truth. With the department's expansion and hiring of our community managers, this still applies. And yes, the proverbial upper management is down with this philosophy - in fact it's why they hired me to make this department! We're not PR. Actually, the community department is a subsection of the web department that reports eventually in to marketing. PR is a different branch and they know how much I crinkle my nose when we get lumped into the same category - our jobs are both important, but they are very different. Now that you know entirely too much about 2K Games and me, you can continue with your regularly scheduled Civving.
