hmmm...

Isn't that Cry-Adam's job? I think it is badass that you made a thread based on your own job.

That's got to feel special. :))

Did you get a promotion or just a new job? Well I guess that is kinda personal, but it is on the news.

Yup :) I'm moving into the licensing department so we're looking for someone to take over CryDev.net and we'll be working with that person closely with Free SDK and future CryENGINE stuffs :)

Thanks Crytek for supplying the community with yet another great opportunity! :D

While I won't be applying, I wish everyone the best in their applications.

I think both Kaneth and Lavizh are both very reputable community members who are some of the prime candidates for the position, it would be awesome to see one of you guys as community manager. Your hard work should hopefully pay off :)
