I was just thinking yesterday how this is the best online forum I have ever been on.  I was thinking that while checking the Black Magic forum as another question posted about DaVinci Resolve went unanswered.

To create a place where people feel welcome, are not made to feel dumb for asking questions, where people leap to assist, where debate is okay but bullying is not ... : that requires a lot of work, but also leadership. It requires a culture from the top that values community and is willing to do the enforcement work to keep it running smoothly.  In many ways, this forum is the customer service desk for KSP, and that service is great.

There are plenty of folks with amazing technical skills but that is not enough. I never would have stayed with KSP were it not for this community.  To nurture it requires people skills.

So thanks for helping steer this ship so so well.

Hello everyone!

I remember when I joined the KSP-team back in the summer of 2016. Update 1.2 was still in the making, the team was smaller, and Felipe had recently left his role as lead developer. The game community, though, was very passionate, but many were skeptical about our ability to continue the game’s legacy without Felipe and a few other developers who would also leave shortly after… It is needless to say that it was a bit overwhelming to take over the role of community manager around that time. I remember that one of my first tasks was to craft a text to reassure the community and let them know that we were committed to continue our efforts to make KSP the best game it could possibly be, and we asked you to believe in us and to let our actions and our work speak for itself. Five years later, here we are, ten major updates later, two expansions, a sequel on its way, and with the brightest possible future for the KSP universe. You believed in us, and you welcomed me into this amazing community as if I had always been part of it, and for that I’m wholeheartedly thankful :)

These past 5 years have meant everything to me. Just before joining Squad I was struggling with the way my life was unfolding: I had a job I hated, was unmotivated, and my mental health was slowly declining… I needed a change. Then one day, I received a call from @nestor inviting me for an interview. I knew this was my chance to turn things around and start doing something I was passionate about, I couldn’t mess things up. Little did I know that the same evening I would be coming home with a new job, and oh boy… What a job! I got to meet and befriend a team of extremely talented and amazing human beings, who were always there to help and support each other, and with whom I feel extremely privileged and grateful to have been able to work along with. I felt at home and was happy to wake up every morning to go to work, thank you @SQUAD for letting me be part of this!

But all great things have to come to an end, and for me, one of the most exciting chapters of my life is reaching its closure. This was of course a very difficult decision to make, but I’m ready for a new challenge, and I’m excited for what’s to come. My time at Squad and in the KSP community allowed me to grow so much and learn so many things that I now feel confident and ready for whatever the future may hold. 

Finally, I just want to thank once again all my colleagues at Squad, Intercept Games, Private Division, the all the might moderation team, and you, Kerbonauts. I will always hold you dearly close to my heart and will eternally be grateful for changing my life for the better. I know the game and the community are in great hands, and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s coming next. SPOILER ALERT: it’s going to be amazing! 

I’ll see you around and wish you the best of luck!

Happy lauchings!
