Spotlight on Community Leaders

Sponsoring giveaways, answering questions, and keeping players up to date on the latest game news are just a few of the many tasks our wonderful community managers are faced with on a daily basis!  Today we ask Wizard101’s Professor Greyrose and Pirate101’s One-Eyed Jack a few questions about what it’s like to be a community manager at KingsIsle.

What made you want to work with the gaming community?

Professor Greyrose: Like others, I came from being a community leader and working on the press side for another game, to being a Community Manager for KingsIsle. Being engaged in a game and being a part of its community is definitely a driving factor in wanting to work with the players.

One-Eyed Jack: KingsIsle is notorious for having the most amazing communities out there—of course, I’m partial since I came directly from the grassroots of the Wizard101 community myself. Being the Pirate101 Community Manager seemed like a natural fit for me.  In truth there’s nothing finer than working for the greater good of a community. When it’s for something you love as much as the community does, I feel there’s a kind of synergy possible that’s hard to replicate and extremely satisfying. I feel our common goal is to enjoy the heck out of Pirate101 and make it an awesome experience that won’t be forgotten.  It’s a lot to live up to, but One-Eyed Jack (um, that’s me) hopes you will always remember your time spent in Pirate101.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

One-Eyed Jack: My favorite part of my job is simply seeing what player ingenuity can bring to Pirate101.  Many years back in a commercial writing class, I had a teacher tell me that creativity at its basis is the mixing of things/ideas.  When I see people mixing their talents of art, music, writing, and role-playing along with the amazing world of Pirate101, it just makes me really happy and proud of our Pirate101 creative community. Getting to see players throw themselves into the game and really be passionate about it is something that can turn “just an OK day” into “a great day”!

1813-fan-art9Professor Greyrose: Like One-Eyed Jack, the most rewarding part of the job is seeing how our games inspire others to be creative in their own way. From fan art and sculptures to cake decorating and costume making – these extracurricular activities really show how our players bring the game into their lives and make it their own.

Now that you know how much our fantastic community leaders love your creative efforts, why not send them some Wizard101 or Pirate101 inspired creativity of your own! Send us your drawings, paintings and sketches of your character or anything else you’ve imagined about Wizard101. If you are under 13 years of age, ask your parent or guardian for permission to send us your artwork.

If you would like to submit something, send it in an email to community@wizard101.com, community@pirate101.com or mail it to us at KingsIsle Entertainment, P.O. Box 82543, Austin TX USA, 78708 and be sure to include your character name!

      I think they should give all the places you cant go to that you need to pay for to get in should be free for a week only so we could get our quest done and level up faster for levels 9 and up and after week over give all wizards a lot of crowns for participating in free week that sounds cool note : only for wizard 101.
