As noted in a recent post on my company’s blog, my team was nominated for the Game Developers Choice Online Awards for the Best Community Relations. The Choice Awards are held in conjunction with the Game Developers Conference Online in Austin, Texas. The Game Developers Conference Online is a convention dedicated to online games and the online gaming industry, and organised by the same group that is responsible for the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, California. The nominees and final selection are made by peers—other games industry professionals.
Here’s the quote from the nomination list:
The Best Community Relations Award
The Best Community Relations Award honors the currently operating online game that provides the highest quality community feedback and experience, including customer support, forum moderation and leadership, weblog and information updates, real-life events, and other community outreach.
I’m proud of my community team and happy for the nomination. Even if we don’t win, it’s an honour to be nominated and in the running amongst such heavy hitters.
I’m particularly pleased that the nomination criteria mentions blogging, as our company blog is something that I’ve been particularly invested in.
