My time on GosuGamers...
So I've been thinking that it's been quite a while since I wrote a blog here on GosuGamers and it's time for a new one! This one is about my thoughts on GosuGamers and my experiences with the crew, our members and my work here. Before you ask, there will be no tl;dl version of this blog.
A little bit about me first...
Some of you may know me and some of you may not. My name is Ivana and I'm 25 years old. I live in Sweden and before I get 200 questions like "Are you from Balkan?", the answer is yes. I was born in former Yugoslavia but moved to Sweden because of the war. I have an Irish boyfriend since almost 3.5 years back,named Jason, whom I love with all my heart. Since he's Irish, you can figure out that I travel there quite often. I love Ireland, it's a beautiful country with awesome people and I love the language and their accents. :) *waves to the Irish folks on GG.net!*I love travelling, been more or less all over Europe (still missing a few countries though!).
I play the violin since I was 7 years old. After I graduated from upper secondary school, I studied to be a teacher in English and Swedish for a few years but now I'm working at a café/restaurant/catering buisness. I have also been moderating on various sites/games since I was 13.
I love playing computer games and I was a big WoW-addict before and spent way too many hours playing that game haha.. I've also played Starcraft and Diablo 2. I quit playing WoW last June and I'm currently playing a bit of SWTOR and mostly Diablo 3!
My time at GosuGamers
I have been working at GosuGamers since I made my account 6 years ago, back when Cyan was the Moderation Team Leader. I am very happy I got the opportunity to work with such amazing people throughout the years.
As most of you know, not too long ago Raistlin promoted me to Moderation Team Leader here on GosuGamers. I was rather surprised and didn't really expect the role even though I had been working here for 6 years. I've worked as News editor, Event admin, Gosubet admin and of course Moderator. Atm, I am mostly working with my moderation team but I also try and help out a bit wherever else I'm needed. :)
While I've been working here on GosuGamers I've met a lot of nice people.. both crew and normal members. I have to say, GosuGamers has really grown as a site and I'm so happy to see it going so well for us. The crew (just like it's always been since I started working) is awesome, every single one of them. I love the fact how well we get along all of us...it makes the working enviroment so much better. I have to admit though, I really do miss some of the old admins... I will never forget the times I went to Dreamhack with GosuGamers a few years back. That, I have to admit, was one of the best times of my life! It was great seeing so many out of the crew from different countries and different parts of the world! I really hope I get the same opportunity again soon! Now that I'm talking about the crew and all, made me remember, I have an old "crew-picture" that we took a few years back. Some of you may remember some of us.
This picture was taken at Dreamhack (think year 2007 if anyone from old crew wishes to confirm ^^ ).
When it comes to our members, I know that some of you have had contact with me a few times *smiles*, for breaking the rules for example. I have to say I'm glad that most of you, when getting a PM off someone from my team, are calm and understanding. You're awesome! I love being here and wouldn't want to work on any other site but GG.net! Without you guys GG.net wouldn't be GG.net! So keep up the good work and the clean comments/posts! :)
Other than that I just wanna say thank you Raistlin for the promotion, I will try to do my best filling the old bosses shoes and I am happy to see so many old GG.net members still lurking about the forums and comment sections ;)
If anyone needs help with anything moderation-wise or any other things related to GG.net, feel free to contact me through PM. You can also send me a mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I reply to everyone as soon as possible and if I can't help you, I will forward you on to someone who can.
P.S. Moderation Team is the best team on GG.net *Grins like a fool!* Mwhahaha ^_^
