Ladies and gentlemen, these past few months I have been becoming restless in
my position as TSR Online Coordinator. My two main goals when I was hired
were to get TSR a "real" website and to get a net-friendly TSR Online
Policy. Well, I've accomplished both of those, and I'm feeling restless in
my current job.

So, I have been working since late November to finish the pending stuff that
required my personal touch, and making arrangements to leave this position.
When I leave, the TSR Online Coordinator position will be no more. All TSR
webmaster functions will be handled by WotC webmaster Alex Von Hochtritt.

I am applying for a designer position in TSR creative services; I think I
have a good chance of making it - they're pleased with my previous design
work, and they know I know the games. Interviews are next week, and I
should have a decision by the week after that. Whether or not I get this
position, I'll no longer be in the Online team - I'll either be over in TSR
CS, or seeking employment elsewhere. Wish me luck. :)

I want to state that this has nothing to do with any interpersonal relations
with the Web Team or any other WotC employees. I have enjoyed working with
all of them, and they've made my transition from Wisconsin to Washington
(and from "lone gunman" to a team member) very easy. They're a great bunch
of people, and I hope to continue working with them in the future.

The internet and TSR's involvement in it has changed quite a bit since I
joined the company. I like to think that I had some positive effect on
both, no matter how small. Having met the two goals I set for myself when I
applied for the TSR OC position, it's time to move on.

I'm not making this post to elicit any sympathy or to get anyone to beg me
to stay - I just wanted everyone informed of what's going on and to give
people some advance notice of some of the possible changes to TSR Online.

At Fri, 16 Jan 1998 00:38:44 GMT sharp, I received this vital message
from Commander Sean K 'Veggie Boy' Reynolds detailing enemy movement
near the small town of rec.games.frp.dnd:

>I'll either be over in TSR CS, or seeking employment elsewhere.

McDonalds is _not_ a wise career move right now ... ;)

>Wish me luck. :)

Good Luck.

Can't say I am sorry to see you go but I do wish you luck in your new job.

Good luck, Sean. Let us know how this all turns out.

I hope you plan to continue your participation in this newsgroup. It's
helpful to have someone inside TSR contributing to the discussions here.
And if it turns out that you're not a TSR insider anymore, stick around
anyway and help us keep the New TSR honest.

Best of luck Sean

Sorry to see you leave the online team, The TSR page is so much nicer
than the WOTC page.

Hopefully we'll see your name in the TSR supplements of the future

Surely you are just being polite? I mean the web page ain't anywhere near as
nice as the WoTC page... course this is personal preference. I think the use
of frames and organization on thier site is much better.

Personal preference: I don't particularly like frames and graphic maps.

Can't comment on organization (at least for www.wizards.com) as I was
turned off enough not to explore it.
