    Grimm mentioned that one of the reasons he'd been kept on was to help train the newbies.

    I'm assuming one of these trainees will be chosen as his replacement.

    Perhaps we could get someone from the Virginia art team to jump in here and introduce themselves..
    Hopefully we can get someone there to take over Grimms Corner.

    One can only hope we didn't lose our best artist and our only artwork information source at the same time.

    I believe there might be other plans for Grimms Corner.

    Hmmm... when you put things in such a manner Petra it usually means you know more than your saying.

    Well, Grimms corner is Grimms, it's not UO's, a lot of it relates to UO, but a lot of it doesn't.

    In all honesty, while the idea of an actual introduction and the new art people taking some initiative to actually reach out is appealing: personal two cents.. it would be in poor taste to put someone else in that spot anyway. To just slide someone into a corner titled for a specific individual is tacky. And it would be an insult to Grimm. (Not being argumentative.. just saying).

    (Taps Ludes up side the back of his head) What were you thinking Denozo?
    Grimm I would hope would stay on here at Forums, the man is tops in my book and just to have him here would help us all out tremendously. His skills not withstanding, he is a part of us kiddo. YOu hear that Grimm.... You have a home here on stratics and I for one expect you to come play UO with us too... Momma says so...

    Grimm will stay where his heart is. a big love for him is art. I think as long as that can be offered here, he'll hang. Most have had a lot of fun in there, even when it wasn't all about UO.

    I seriously doubt we are going to get any chat from the new guy. I'd be surprised if he/she even registers on a fansite at all.

    Part of me things everyone is rushing to this topic a little too fast. New members of the team are usually announced both on stratics and on the herald when they take officially take position especially with a position like Grimms.

    UO team has lost many people over the last 10-12 months and we've only seen a couple of new mentions on Stratics or the Herald, and they weren't formal introductions for the most part, but were just mentioned as a part of something else.

    I'm not saying it didn't used to be that way, but look at the current UO team

    Game Developer - UOGuide, the Ultima Online encyclopedia

    How many of those that are newer do you remember having introduced themselves?

    If you don't count GMs or EMs and just look at people directly working on the UO team, there are only 8 people that are known to be working on UO.

    For those who don't want to look, these are the people that are known to be working directly on UO (not counting GMs or contract EMs)

    Producer
    Bonnie "Mesanna" Armstrong - Producer

    Designers
    Mike "Phoenix" Moore - Designer
    Greg "Kyronix" Havlusch - Designer

    Engineers
    Stephen "Bleak" Brown - Engineer
    Yvette "MrsTroublemaker" Aarons - Engineer

    Artists

    Testers
    Michael "Misk" Armstrong - Test Lead
    James Riddick - Quality Assurance Tester

    If there were formal introductions being made, I think that list would be longer.

    If you wish to be a pessimist, fine. It still seems incredibly early to be discussing this. Grimm hasn't even left yet.

    I'm not sure Yvette Aarons still works on UO.

    I have a feeling if more formal introductions are made we will see more formal dismissals.
