    IMPORTANT - New Community Manager Announcement

    The new Community Manager for PSU.com for the foreseeable future will be Alex Locher (aka Ghost Rhayne).

    The decision was made over a number of weeks following applications from eight people who applied to be our next CM.

    The decision was made by 15 members of PSU, consisting of staff, forum staff and veteran members.

    We discussed the applications individually for each application before voting for a final three.

    There was a tie for third place, so four candidates went through to the final round. I dont want to name those candidates in case they want to remain anonymous.

    These final candidates were then asked questions compiled by the panel based on concerns raised if they were to take the CM position. Each candidate answered and then a final vote was cast, in which Alex was voted to have put forward the best vision for PSU moving forward.

    Were very excited to see Alex in the position of CM. He is clever, passionate about PSU and PlayStation and extremely creative. Hes already done a lot at PSU through his desire, determination and motivation. At the same time, were sad to see Rob (CuGuy) no longer at the helm and wish him all the best and hope he continues to contribute to our amazing community.

    Alex will immediately take control of CM duties though there will be an initiation period where he will be getting used to how Vbulletin works while assembling his team to take us through to the next-generation. Id ask that the current forum team, many of whom may well not be affected, to continue what theyre doing until further notice.

    Alex will choose his own forum staff to work alongside him so announcements will be made in due course. If there are any moderators, admins or SMCs who wish to step down as a result of the appointment please let me know. CuGuy, at his request, is now a member of PSU.

    This will be a learning process for Alex too so please try and remember that and dont bombard him with requests in the initial days. Hell need to settle in, learn the back-end and will be fully taking control as CM effective from August 1, 2013.

    I think its only fair that the whole community sees why Alex was chosen for the role above others. So, heres his application which he then elaborated on when further questioned in an in-depth manner that basically won him this role.

    Congrats Alex. Looking forward to the future.

    I am really excited and grateful to have been appointed to this position and I'm massively grateful to those who gave me their support to make this happen.

    I am well underway to building my team which will consist of existing staff members as well as some smart, motivated, down-to-earth and long serving members of the site. As soon as I have the team finalised I'll let you all know!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I have a fair bit to organise still but will keep you all up to speed with what's going on.

    Grats Ghost.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    As Steven said, my pitch is there! However:

    TL;DR - working to create a harmonious community through a more personal and proactive approach to moderation, creating more things for people to do at the site and by further marrying the content and community in an effort to bring more money for the site.

    Wow.... who wrote that for you? (uses plagiarism checker website)..... okay.. you did.

    Very well written. There is a particular part I'm interested in that I will PM you about later. I'm gonna take your word at face value at this point.

    Congrats on the new job!

    Haha I actually wrote that by amalgamating all of claud's posts, then I reversed the text, used google translate to make it german, got drunk and translated it back to english...I think it came out well!

    I look forward to you PM, and thanks for the support.

    Thanks ps3freak18 and Naxi! I appreciate the support very much.

    I won't screw up! Also, hold me accountable to my role! Y'all had better be e-mailing Steven if I start slacking or acting in a way unbecoming of a CM. I can pledge to you all now, openly and sincerely,that I have one agenda: maximising PSU's potential as the web's coolest community. Hold me to it!

    Good luck man. One thing no one can't say about you is that you sure do have passion for the forum

    Best of luck

    Edit: that came out wrong. What I mean is that no one can say you don't have the passion for the forum or Playstation.

    I was gonna skip the PS4 this gen.....buuuuuuuut I guess I'm getting one now thanks to you Ghost!

    What if I put in every post "The PS4 sucks..... I wouldn't get one even if someone gave it to me for free!"


    Then I get a thumbs down on every post ....and the irony..... I accept a free PS4 from PSU as a result!


    ... j/k I'm getting a PS4.
