As everyone is aware, in just a day from now, we’re going to be bang in the middle of E3. For many of us, this is the equivalent of a birthday and Christmas both rolled into one. Developers from the world over will convene to show us the very best they have to offer, and sites like ours will update all day long to keep up with the torrent of news and impressions and interviews we gather from the show floor. It’ll be magical (hopefully).
As we go into E3 week, I’d like to remind everyone of the need to remain respectful throughout the event and beyond. One of the nicer things about Siliconera is that we have a fairly decent community in comparison to a lot of other websites on the Internet, and our hope is that it will get even better in time. In order to help achieve this goal, we’ve started to reach out to members of the community to help keep things on track by making sure that our readers feel welcome and respected.
I’d like to introduce two of our new moderators from within the community today—DrakosAmatras, who some of you know has been contributing to the site for a while now, and M’iau M’iaut, who is one of the oldest community members. M’iau was spearheading discussions in the comments before I even joined the site as a member of staff. From now on, they’ll be watching the comments, making sure no one feels threatened or insulted, keeping the trolls away, and trying to “keep things clean”. I hope you’ll give them the same respect that you give other members of our staff, and lend them your support in maintaining a healthy community.
This is also a good time to remind everyone of our site rules. Please give these a good read and try to stick to them:
That’s all for now. If you guys have any questions, ask away in the comments and we’ll be more than happy to answer them. AND LET THE E3 FESTIVITIES BEGIN!
