The Destiny Community is a thriving population of impassioned people – a stampede of Guardians so mighty they’ll run you over if you stand still. Not that you’ll ever find me complaining. It’s been an honor and a privilege to be your Community Manager.
The fact of the matter is that there are too many of you for me to handle alone. Sure, I have urk to lead the way, but we both get pulled behind the scenes more and more to make sure you’re informed about the next evolution that Bungie will be hurling at you. But what about the front lines?
Bungie.net is visited by millions of unique visitors. Our forum is a fountain of feedback, insights, and creativity. When it comes to acknowledging the important things you say or celebrating the awesome things you do, we barely scratch the surface. And that’s just on our website. We all know that the Destiny Community sprawls well beyond the friendly confines of Bungie.net.
As always, when we’re faced with a challenge, we look to the community for inspiration. Today, it’s our pleasure to announce an addition to our team from your ranks. Meet Cozmo.
Cozmo: Greetings fellow Guardians!It’s my honor to be the latest player plucked from the community to assist in its management. I come to Bungie by way of the Destiny subreddit. I’m leaving that in the hands of a great team I worked with for years to create a space on the Internet for discussion about Destiny.I now aim to better serve the larger Destiny community alongside those who create and maintain the game. My job is to be your voice, or at the very least your interpreter, filtering the firehose of information on Bungie.net - as well as on social media. I’ll also be empowering all of you to keep creating the great community content that we all enjoyed throughout year one.My roots in the Bungie community run deep. I’m a product of the Halo generation, born from late night LAN parties and molded by the brutalities of online competition. In Destiny, it’s been my experience that the only thing better than beating a Raid are the people in your Fireteam. I’ve met so many amazing people in this community and look forward to meeting more every day.As Community Manager my first decree will be free Gjallarhorns for everyone! [Editor’s Note: Cozmo cannot give you Gjallarhorns any more than I can – please don’t mob him on Twitter.] I’m excited to discuss and play Destiny with the lot of you whenever I can. I hope to see you around the forum and in the game.
Cozmo and I will operate as a team. I’m not going anywhere. We’re having too much fun. Just think about how much more fun we can have with another CM in the house.
Stay tuned, because we have some new plans for how to keep you entertained.
