James Gallagher is leaving the role of Blog Manager over at the EU site to “have a go at some opportunities elsewhere.”
In his final message, James says that he is proud to have “helped create a social platform that isn’t about individuals”, and one that attempted to bring “PlayStation customers closer to the professionals who make the games they love.”
In some respects, he and the rest of the team has been largely successful, especially with regards to getting the content out there in an informal yet corporate manner – but there was always a nagging feeling that the community opinions went somewhat unanswered, even if they were seemingly the same ones repeated week in, week out.
It sounds like they’re trying to find the right person for the job right away, regardless, although in the meantime some “contributing editors” will “steer the ship.”
We wish James all the best in whatever he does next.
