I'm John, your new friendly neighborhood Salem Game Master. From now on, until the foreseeable future, this game and forum part will be mine to take care of. That does not mean I am replacing anyone that is already active in this forum. All moderators, demi-mods and other Paradox employees will still be here and doing the same thing. I am simply an addition. See me as another BjornB (he's sitting on the desk right behind me) only that I am mainly going to work with Salem.
First of all; I am not here to change anything for the worse, my sole interest is to make the Salem user experience as good as I humanly can. I have the utmost respect for the posters in this forum and I do not want to change the ways you interact. Beware, this does not mean I will be lenient on rules.
I am here to make sure all your forum and game issues are solved and this sub-forum upholds a decent posting standard and mature environment. I'm also here to be a liaison between you and the rest of Paradox Interactive, so that your opinions and thoughts on the game will be heard by those who need to hear it.
I expect you, the forum poster and Salem player, to treat me with the same respect I treat you. If you act mature and follow the forum rules you will have no issues with communicating with me, if you don't. Well, then learn how to.
The aim is for us to work together to make Salem an amazing experience for both new and old players. As it has been mentioned before, this is only a beta. None of you are here to play the game as much as you are here to test it to make sure that when you actually do play the game it will be polished and fully functional. This means that we will probably endure both hard and good times.
Now, I am fully aware that most of you probably have a lot more experience with this forum and game than me so please consider this until I have settled.
Please ask any questions you might have about me and my role here in this thread, I will do my best to answer them.
Tl;dr - Hi, I'm John. I'm going to take care of this game and forum part. I am going to be harsh but righteous.
Salem Game Master, Paradox Interactive
