    To true, not sure any of our rambles would qualify for pinning. If things ever turn around that might change, have you noticed we have a new community Lead?

    Rambles sometimes need pins too, Slash.

    As a community we should all be open to welcoming him, and others who want to proactively make the forum a better place. As you said he was potentially warned about the community as it is, we'll see how things proceed.

    Incidentally, I have dropped by said bid him welcome.

    Hey! Thanks FP, saw that. No worries, gang. This is not my first time around the Community Management block. I actually have a bit of history repairing relationships between the community and teams. 

    But I don't see that here. I think we have a solid foundation of core fans still playing, still interacting with us. If there are fans willing to talk to us, we need people here willing to listen. Enter Me. Expanding the team of community professionals at Gun is only going to improve our response time and level of involvement here.

    Bottom line, there are plenty of ways for you all to spend your day. If any sliver of that time is spent with us in chat, in game, or just on social, we thank you.

    Now all we need is answers to go along with a new community lead.

    1. When do basic things like being able to skip cutscenes in singleplayer challenges get added?

    2. When will other Jasons load on the main menu besides Part 3 going all the way back to beta?

    3. Can we expect more consistent communication rather than the slivers of information every few months?

    4. Will the game receive any worthwhile updates in December?

    Some of these are hard hitting, but given the state of affairs, they are meant to be, without any real offenses intended.

    1. This is an item I'd have to look into for you. I don't have the specifics here, but generally in my experience in game dev, there is always a reason for the scene playing out. I'll see if I can get a more concrete answer for you on this.

    2. Again, something I'll have to look into. 

    3. Absolutely. I can't fabricate information when there is nothing to say, but I am here to interact with you all as a core part of my function at Gun. Short version, I'm the voice of the community to the team and the voice of the team to the community. I'm still ramping up, but you can always feel free to reach out to me via PM anytime.

    4. As far as timing for fixes, please stay tuned. For now, let's focus on getting as much reported as possible and as soon as I can pin down a timeframe, I will. That info will be shared here, there, and everywhere when it's time. I guarantee it.

    I realize there is some non-answers in there. I wanted to get a reply over to you as soon as I could though. I'll add these items to my list and follow up as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience while I get up to speed around here.

    Outta curiosity, do you also represent Black Tower Studios or will they eventually have a rep around here as well the same way Illfonic had members?

    As a ComDev for Gun Media, I will be speaking for all the titles that Gun publishes. So I speak for Friday the 13th: The Game, which is a collaborative joint effort. That said, I'm a conduit for communication to all teams involved and can certainly function in that capacity here.

  4. Hey gang!

    My name is Matt, but you'll find me in game and all over the internet as "mattshotcha" and I'm a new hire here at Gun Media in the role of Lead Community Developer. While I'm brand new to the Gun Team and Friday the 13th, I have a history in managing online communities that spans a variety of titles and platforms. I'm looking forward to jumping in here, as well as social and Reddit. 

    While the bulk of my experience in the gaming industry is in the shooter scene, I'm a lifelong horror junkie. Now that I've found my professional home here at Gun, it's time for me to get to work, with you, the community. And on that note, we'll keep this short and sweet.

    Feel free to reach out to me via the forums here, or anywhere you choose to discuss Friday the 13th the game. Community Development is a two way street, and I firmly believe that open and accessible communication between the players and the team (by way of the community team) is vital to the development of a healthy and thriving community. Let's work together towards that goal.

    And with that, I'm going to get back to work. Talk soon, campers.
