Gaming C.V.

I have been a gamer since the mid-1990s, and enjoy many different types of video game. Thanks to my long-standing voluntary work in a number of online gaming communities over the years, I was asked to become an official game admin for Strike-Team (xwis), the group that runs the gaming servers for Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun, and Red Alert 2. As part of my role I am responsible for monitoring cheat reports on the Strike-Team forums, and have full admin powers to issue warnings and even bans to players caught cheating, or breaking the Strike-Team rules.

C&C Tiberian Sun

I have been involved with the Tiberian Sun (TS) community in one way or another since 1999. Over the years I have worked as a moderator, global moderator and administrator on a number of TS forums including:
  • www.strike-team.net.
  • www.cncevo.info.
  • www.gamerwarzone.com.
  • www.cncwarzone.com
  • www.ggaming.co.uk
  • www.freestyle-gaming.com
In this time I have amassed many thousands of posts and private messages with players. This has given me a great deal of experience not just in forum software functionality and moderator functions, but also in directly dealing with members of the community in a fair, balanced and professional manner. I have also been able to demonstrate my flair for the written word, producing a 60-page guide to TS, as well as numerous strategy articles written in forums across the years. I also run a Tiberian Sun blog which I use to help boost SEO and point players towards the main community forum. Tiberian Sun Mole40k and Drealvler win vs Aphrodlte and partner, bbg

Tian Long Ba Bu (TLBB)

TLBB (also known as ‘Dragonoath’ in the U.S.) is a F2P Martial Arts / Fantasy MMORPG set in Ancient China. During my time working as Content Writer for ChangYou.com (EU) I worked closely with the Community Manager, integrating myself with the EU server community, talking with players, and also working as a global moderator in the EU forum. I also helped to run twice-weekly community events, and created compelling story content that actively featured members of the community in order to build a richer and more exciting gaming experience for the players.
