    Where did everyone go?
    The other staff don't even have accounts anymore. Clicking Cyrene officials leads to no where as there are no officials.

    Hey Rusty,

    To start I'd like to point out that there have really only been 3 active staff accounts on here, myself, Ed 3, and Lykke. While I am now the most vocal on the forums and most played in game, it's naive to think I'm the only staff member. Unfortunately, Lykke is no longer a part of the Cyrene team, but we've still got a lot of people working on it.

    Game_Team_Working_9979.JPG (You can barely see the top of my head behind the dual monitors in my office). In this picture you can't see our marketing, social media team, line bosses, etc. so about another 10 or so people missing that work in the other building.

    Of course, almost none of them are on the forums, in fact some don't speak much English and/or are embarrassed by their English skills (as the bulk of our workforce is located in South East Asia).

    So I act now on two fronts: Community Manager (preforming Lykke's duties) and Developer. Ed 3 is still the head honcho and makes any sort of big announcements (but is usually lurking on here). Not only that, but our game team is expected to ramp up an additional 10 to 15 staff members at the start of the new year.

    You can clearly see that we are one of the largest teams in the Entropia Universe (although I may be wrong) along with our ability to ramp up by pulling existing staff from other departments if need be, and our limited by the amount of content we are allowed to release.

    We really only need 1 person communicating on here, while the rest of the team is able to focus on working.

    I hope this sums everything up.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    I meant to say the only staff member on the forum, and as of now there are zero 'Cyrene officials'. I am aware of the team, glad to hear it is more than the 6 listed on the bio page. :)

    (Looks like your desk got moved)


    You should have your account added to the Cyrene Officials so your posts are easier to read, along with ED 3

    Oh I see, Actually it is an error. You are all on the list already, but because of the removal of Lykke it broke it.

    The issue is because her account was deleted/renamed to

    Wait?! Is Lykke, the Lykke who started the Chuch of Lootius on Calypso?

    When I played form '05 to '08, on my original avatar, I was in that soc for like over a year!

    Yes the same Lykke, I was around in '05 when Lykke rescued me from Fort Troy.

    @Kris Do I even want to know why a roll of toilet paper is on that guy work station?

    Lykke was in game? Ok so she left with Mindstar9 and the rest of Cyrene's staff around 2013? But cool to know Lykke was apart of EU way back then.

    Also to add a bit of history here. I think the turning point of Cyrene was in 2013 just after they made a human sized Mech. Soon after the next VU all seem to have changed with most everyone leaving the team and most all posts from Ed stopping. Ever since then the only person that we have had contact with is Kris.

    As well, sorry to say, about that time was when we started to see major problems with the planet. Every VU since then the planet's optimization just started going down hill. It got to a point that lag was so bad that you couldn't even walk in high graphics mode. About this time is when we got our 'new' planet with the major downsize from 3 to 1 server. As well as we saw the job seem to be a fast weekend job.

    I do feel for you Kris. I do hope all works out and that you stick with it. You could be the one who saves the planet.

    Mindstar9 left shortly after Cyrene was released due to getting her own radio up and running again. Lykke left around mid June 2014 I believe as that was one of her last articles she did for Cyrene.

    Turning points for Cyrene is different opinions for everyone, personally it wasn't even Cyrene fault. I personally am still in process of withdrawing but I'm leaving based on the things MA "Screwed Up" not because of Cyrene.

    Also in any game industry you will always see a huge amount of team members at the release of the game, at big patch events that's usually it. Look at other games you will usually see 1 to 3 community members talking to the majority while the others are behind the scenes to make a better game for all. I wouldn't necessarily blame Cyrene or Mindark for dwindling community members or team members of any planet partner. Entropia Universe in general has very small game population compared to others.

    I actually resigned my position with the Cyrene Writing Team in June or July 2012, a year after being invited to join the team by Ed. Bringing MindStar Media and MSR back to life was inspired by my decision to resign my position with the writing team.

    I would like to point out and validate the fact that Kris stated Lykke is no longer a part of the Cyrene development team. The post mentioned above from Entropia Planets is in reference to Lykke getting back her player avatar from MA - so that she might enjoy normal game play once again. I had to clarify this because I am tired of player speculation on matters and certain post from forum members whom fell the need to whine about it.
