    Hi everyone !

    I have been promoted to Senior Online French Editor !
    Part translation part proofreading, responsible for the continuity(consistency :D)of our game's content.

    It's the perfect job for me and a good opportunity to reach the next level.
    Never was an ambitious person but it's like tattoos, once you start you're never satisfied until you find the next challenge.

    I'll keep you posted on how things go but I'll have less time to roam the interwebz now !

    I feel sad to have to part with all that internet banter but I know that some of you will remember me, for a while at least ;)

    I am not gone forever and I am still an OH and will ever be, part of what got me the job is my love for words and... consistency... so Dune plays a part in me landing this job.

    So thank you Frank Herbert, you were part of this !

    And thank you all here for allowing me to perfect my knowledge of the English language and its subtleties.(some of you I still don't really understand to be honest, but it might be because you're not trying to make any sense)

    Enough of this larmoyant rant and back to drinking !

    Congrats, and a sad goodbye. Hopefully you'll occasionally have time to poke your head in and say hello?

    You were just hitting your stride! We'll poke at you every so often if you don't check in. Where else are you going to keep up with the latest in the English language?

    hey I don't plan to disappear !
    Just at the beginning I'll concentrate on finding my marks at work, but where else will I find a community of people gathered together by their love for a book ?!?!
    So no way I won't come back ! The djihad doesn't stop until the hack and his drivel are erased from the world's memory !



    (@freak
    just got the quote for my salary and yes, drinks are on me !)

    And of course, thank you all !

    @Nekhrun
    indeed all the time spent here trying to make sense of obscure references and jokes that are not supposed to make sense(and then there is the SandRider...) have been a massive help in keeping me trained and alert.
    It was my skill as a translator that landed me the job, and it's safe to say that all of you played a role in that :D

    thank you !

    I know it sounds corny but if there ever was a place where people would appreciate that the love for consistency, quality language, (and also splitting hairs and cherry-picking, my personal favourite !) would help someone land a dream job, if there ever was such a place it'd be here :)
