Hey everyone!

With Joveth's departure I just wanted to pop in and take this opportunity to have us, the Community team, reintroduce ourselves! I know at times you will have seen our names in different spots on the forums, Reddit, or social media, but I figured a formal "hello, I am this guy/girl" would be way better! I will have the other Community folks post below.

As you can already see, my name is Eric Musco! I have a bunch of different roles on the Community team but the things that are most public facing are that I handle BioWare's communication to guilds and fan sites (I actually came from a fan site myself!).

When it comes to The Old Republic itself, I am a big elder game player. I love diving into Operations and the occasional Warzone. I have two 50's currently and am working on my third, why did no one tell me Marauders were so much fun?

I also have an extreme love for our Rakghoul forum smileys!

Musco really isn’t joking about his love of Rakghoul smilies…. I prefer Jawas myself!

I’m Courtney Woods, Community Production Specialist here at BioWare Austin. My main responsibilities on the team include localization, maintaining, writing, editing, and managing content for SWTOR.com. An example of one the blogs I am responsible for is the Companions 101 series. I am crazy about Companions in our game so please feel free to PM me about any of your favorites!

I am an “altoholic” – I spend a lot of time figuring out creative ways to level up my characters with the Legacy System. I currently have two level 50s and three characters in their 40’s that I switch between, plus about 5 lower levels.

I look forward to chatting with y’all – especially about the story ("The Fourth Pillar"), Companions, and Flashpoints in our game.

Pa-chow!

Hi! I'm Amber Green and as Live Services Specialist, I am the community team's first line of defense in fighting the bugs and issues you report. This primarily has me compiling and writing patch notes for all of our deploys and maintaining the Known Issues. Additionally, I work with QA, Customer Support, and devs to reproduce and research issues before they're fixed.

Oh, and I don't have a favorite smile, because I am all about the high five! o/''\o

Good to know all the players. Seen some names around.

Communication is KING! So please feel free to consider yourselfs crowned by the TOR masses and communicate as much as possible.

For the Community Team,

Do you each have a particular fond memory of a single moment in TOR? Like taking down a boss for the first time, or seeing the purple light from a corpse etc

Hey guys, thank you for your continued work. You are all quite familiar to me here and on Twitter.

I would like to ask a couple of things, however.

First of all, is Joveth's position now "cannibalized" by the remaining team members, or will it be filled, or simply left empty? Who is going to do what Joveth was doing, exactly? (no snarky answers from the forum, please :P)

Secondly, what can we expect from this point forward? Will communication change? I think many people would like it to improve....seeing a community manager depart isn't exactly conducive to that.

PS - Courtney, love the companion blogs, looking forward to the rest of them.
