    Very cool! There are some on here I was unaware of. Thank you 🙂

  2. Sweet ass list you made.

    I’m a Comm Man, but not for the Game Industry. >:C

  3. Malgayne says:

    Very handy, thank you!

    I’m actually the Community Manager for Wowhead.com, which is a WoW fansite. I’d love to be included in the list (since we do have about six million users), but I understand if you want to keep it to game studios only. 🙂 You can find me at http://twitter.com/Malgayne.

  4. sixokay says:

    Malgayne – Yeah, I’m trying to keep this reflecting those on the game development side of the fence, specifically as a resource for folks like you. I know I get a lot of requests from people asking if I can help them get in touch with someone from [PUBLISHER] or [DEVELOPER]. I figured this list was a great way to help folks out.

  5. Malgayne says:

    I thought it might be something like that. Definitely hugely appreciated though.

  6. DBizzle says:

  7. sixokay says:

    Thanks, DBizzle! Added them to the list.

  8. Great list! It’s very helpful and I think it’s great to start connecting Community Managers. I would like to add myself if that’s ok:

    Jay Frechette @jayfrechette – Community Manager at Visceral games on @deadspace.

    Thanks!

  9. sixokay says:

    Ah! I was wondering who picked up that Visceral gig. Congrats! I’ll add you right now.

  10. Megumi says:

    Aaron Kaufman | @EA_APOC
    Community Manager – EALA (Command & Conquer)

  11. sixokay says:

    Aaron’s already on the list 🙂

  12. Megumi says:

    hmm maybe I jumped over him ^^

  13. Pete says:

    Fantastic list.. great work with keeping this up to date sixokay!

    Glad to see Community Managers getting the respect in the industry they deserve 😉

    I’m the Community Manager at Remedy (Alan Wake) btw.
    http://twitter.com/sidetwo

    New to industry but always looking at making contacts 🙂

  14. sixokay says:

    Awesome, Pete. Adding you to the list. Let me know if there’s anyone else you know of that I missed! Thanks!

  15. Hi all. I’m the Community Manager and Content Manager for KingsIsle Entertainment’s Wizard101.
    See you in the Spiral!
    ~Kiersten

    Thank you!

    • Six Okay says:

      Hey Brian – Currently, the list is just for CMs who are on the publisher/dev side of things. The idea is to help folks like yourself more easily find contacts within the industry.

  20. Teodorix says:

    Great site! Thanks for adding to list, but i’m not Twodorix 😉
