ANNOUNCE NEWS #4543 (04/29/2016 at 22:30) From : Sarapis, the Logos To : Everyone Subject: Promotions in the Garden! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In the last days of 2009, we let Achaea's previous producer go, and promoted Tecton to producer. Since then, Achaea arrested the precipitous downward slide it had suffered in the years between my stepping away as producer and Tecton taking over. Through his efforts, Achaea recovered and is thriving, with this year actually seeing a substantial rise in activity thus far (which is kind of surprising in a long-established MUD in 2016). Achaea has a great and growing team around Tecton currently, with some really valuable folks, but two of them really stand out: Charlie (Makarios) and Nicola (Lorielan), both of whom are assistant producers currently and who work really hard and long to help make Achaea better for you. Because of the nature of the work they do you're probably not aware of how much they contribute, but let's sum it up as "a shit ton" (meaning an amount exactly equivalent to 3 humgiis after they have completed precisely 67 courses at a meal). Today I'm pleased to announce three promotions: Charlie (Makarios) and Nicola (Lorielan) are being promoted to co-producers. Yes, Lorielan's old-as-heck plan to seize control of reality appears to be coming true, if in an OOC sense rather than an IC one. They make a great team together, with highly complementary skillsets that overlap in the right places so that they can collaborate on ideas for everything from a new class to RP events. Makarios will just stay Makarios, and though Nicola will continue playing Lorielan, she'll create a character named, appropriately, Nicola, under which she'll do her job as co-producer, to keep the IC/OOC separation clear. I'm promoting Tecton to Executive Producer, which is a new position for us, and means his main job will be overseeing Charlie and Nicola with me, and lending his 6 years of producing experience to them. He's going to be transitioning to doing that part-time, doing his job as CTO (Chief Technology Officer) of Iron Realms, and working on another project within Iron Realms. (And just in case the timing seems odd, no, this has nothing to do with his recent vacation.) The transition will happen over the next few weeks, giving Charlie and Nicola a chance to get their feet under them, though they're already involved in most aspects of running Achaea, and are well-equipped to step up with this promotion. I want to personally and publicly thank Justin for all he's done for Achaea over the last 6 years as producer, and for years before that as a volunteer. I've got full confidence that Nicola and Charlie will do a great job, but they've got big shoes to fill! Tecton will continue to be available at [email protected], while Nicola and Charlie are at [email protected] and [email protected] if you need to get in contact with them. Penned by My hand on the 22nd of Glacian, in the year 711 AF.
