New moderator approaching!

Pekola's Avatar

As the community manager here, I’m aware of the ongoing issues with our comments. I’ve recently mentioned that I have a plan to help improve things over the next few months. While I ask that our community helps in this regard, I’m only one person and I need some assistance.

Pekola, whom I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of around the site, is our newest moderator. I’m excited to have another moderator join the team. This is just the first step in my plan to help improve our comments.

I’ve seen more and more people ignoring our guidelines lately and I’m not happy about it. We ask that you follow our guidelines when posting here at Gematsu. Please, take the time to review them below.

Without further ado, Pekola had this to share:


“So now that I’m a mod, I’m hoping we can all elevate Gematsu into being an even better site. Two heads are better than one. Or so they say. But in Gematsu we don’t just have two heads. We have plenty of heads. With lots of ideas and idiosyncrasies.

“I’d like to take this small message to urge you… make Gematsu that fun place you go to have intelligent, light-hearted and interesting discussions. When I was accepted as a mod, it made me really happy. Because I really like Gematsu and I hope you guys like it as much as I do!”

Let’s all give Pekola a warm welcome in the comments below.
