CM Corner 004: Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

Hey guys,

This is a bit of a somber CM Corner today, as everyone is leaving and my heart feels heavy to see some of my favorite editors leaving after the beginning of a promising future for Japanator was established under our fearless leader Tim and a staff that refused to quit no matter how frustrating things became. We got a new mascot, excellent original features, and met so many of you awesome community members together, and even though I've only been with the site less than two years and your community manager a mere 7 months, I'm proud of what we have here.

That's why I am going to remain at the site as long as I can, though my production will be severely limited. You may have noticed I have been working with Destructoid on daily news posts, and I have also been contributing there for reviews and whatnot. I will be spending a lot more time there, though I will stick around at Japanator as long as I can to hopefully bring some cross-posts, Annotated Anime coverage, and I'll continue to do what I can for you guys as your acting CM.

I'm so sad to see an excellent staff broken up like this, but unfortunately all good things must come to an end. I wish the best of luck to everyone who's leaving, everyone who's sticking around, and all of you lovely readers left shaking your heads in confusion. As always, if you have any concerns I'll be happy to address them the best I can, and I'm hoping to see you guys around during Japanator's next phases!

HAAAY~! <3 I'm Brittany, and I'm the resident creeper, er, community manager over here at Jtor. I'm here to make your experience even more awesome than usual, and If that means exposing you to J-horror in near-deadly doses, then I shall.

Have a pressing question? A suggestion? Send me a PM, email me, or tweet me! Can't wait? Feel free to contact me on AIM at JtorBrittany.

Brittany Vincent is an accomplished video game and freelance entertainment writer whose work has been featured in esteemed publications and online venues like G4TV.com, Joystiq, Complex, IGN, GamesRadar, Slide To Play, Wizard World, Kotaku, C&G Magazine, Gamezebo, GameSpot, and more. She’s been writing professionally for five years and enjoys combining her lifelong love of gaming and extensive video game knowledge with her passion for the written word.

She also enjoys writing for horror publications like Rue Morgue, Bloody Disgusting, and Dread Central. Over the past few years, she’s also worked with PR representatives to build relationships and obtain review products for her work, having managed her own gaming website and small teams to attend video game conventions such as PAX East in 2010 and E3 in 2011. In addition, she is now the community manager at Japanator.

When her bank account, eyes, and social life aren’t suffering from grueling hours of sweaty-palmed gaming and feverish scribbling, she may be found in the wild viewing anime or poring through manga, mingling in online forums, and working to hone her craft. Simple sleep or paralysis is not enough to catch her, though. No, a Master Ball may be in order. Until her dying breath she’ll be wielding a BFG made entirely of killer drive and ambition while stamping out stereotypes and passing on the frivolity of console wars. So, are you ready? Game on — no button mashing allowed.
