Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day!

Yarrrrr!
 
    Today is Community Manager Appreciation Day. We are lucky enough to have Amazing CM's who actually care about their gaming communities unlike some of the other games around! Tom and Leala do an amazing job keeping the Wizard101 and Pirate101 communities in check while having a great time!
 
    For example they just recently started doing these interactive events called KI Live where they do a webcam live stream recapping new content while giving out some prizes to lucky viewers. If you want to watch them you can check out Kingsisle's Youtube Channel with them! Just wanted to give a quick shout out that I am very thankful for them. Major Props for Ex Greyrose Kiersten Samwell as well. She is now a dev on the W101 team.
 
    Cannot wait to see what Tom and Leala have in store for us in the future. I'm sure they will do a wonderful job. :) Make sure to give them a shout out today if you can. You can reach them on twitter at @Lealaturkey and @FriendlyNecro.
 
See you all in the Spiral!
 
PS: To everyone who lives on the East Coast , be careful a big winter storm is approaching, stay safe and have fun in the snow!
