But what if she's getting ready to ask you what kind of pie or sandwich you want her to make? =0

Nice try, but we all know what happened last time man took food from a woman.

Afraid to hit like for fear of reveal later while running for office. Sarcasm and satire are so lost in politics.

Okay, now that's fair game for a like! ;)

 

Man, do we need another deal from Tony (or whoever took over and had to clean up the sucralose from all over his desk).

How white chocolate is superior to dark chocolate.

Hey. I kinda dig that. Reminds me of early Fiona Apple...sort of.

It's kinda melancholy, so it has somewhat of the same feel of some of her songs, but Fiona is by far a superior songwriter and a better singer to boot. It lacks a lot of the feeling and emotion that Apple brings out in her songs.

Hey CAGS,

 

I’ve got some news I’m both excited and sad to share with you at the same time. I’ll be leaving the Digital Video Games team in Mid-March to join the marketing team for Amazon.com’s Loyalty and Rewards program, Amazon Coins. My boss and I have talked extensively about how to maintain and continue our presence here and across the other communities we’ve created in the past couple of years. To that end I’d like to introduce you to Josh, who take over monitoring, updating, and responding to this thread. Josh will be ramping up over the next couple of weeks, he  will be posting shortly to introduce himself.

 

Now that the “what’s going on” part of the message is out of the way I want to tell you all how much I love CAG and the posters here. This was the first community I joined when I started this job (anyone still remember that first thread?) and all of you have had a huge hand in shaping how we think about and execute Community Development and Management here at Amazon, which has in turn shaped my career these last two and a half years.

 

I started to write out a section calling out the regular posters and realized the list would be both overly long and incomplete at the same time. Instead I’d like to thank you all again, you all have my deep and sincere gratitude. I’ll still be around and my gaming accounts aren’t going anywhere so feel free to hit me up anytime you want to chat. I’ll probably still hang out in the thread too :).

 

Thanks again everyone, let me or Josh know if you have any questions!

 

Cheers,

Tony

@Tony AKA T-Money

Damn, T-Money....You're gonna get this Cylon and Toaster all choked-up and stuff. I don't know - can Cylons and Toasters cry? Man, I wish you the best in your future endeavor at Amazon! I'm gonna miss all the posting and crazy deals you and Amazon DVG concocted. We had some great times here! Hope to keep seeing you pop-in + chat here!

 

@Josh AKA J-Money

So, now - hey Josh! J-Money, welcome to the CAG Party! Hope you're ready to drop some killer and often groundbreaking deals like Tony did! And, oh yeah - we also expect lots of awesome deals, off-topic chatter, code-drops for games. :D

Running the loyalty program for Kindle users a demotion?  Me thinks you may be underestimating how popular the Kindle is versus Amazon's Digital Video Game store.

For the record his real nickname isn't MysterD, it's M-Money, but he doesn't like to go by it because it just sounds like he's stuttering.

Say wat?

 

I didn't see anything about Kindle in his post, just a loyalty and rewards program and "Amazon coins". If he said he was the new manager of the Kindle store and all that, I can see how that would be great. Amazon coins? I don't know man.

 

It's hard to see how being the manager of a new, possibly terrible rewards system would be a promotion over all of the commission from heading the entire digital games market on Amazon.

 

 

Haha thanks for looking out  :). It is a massive promotion.

Well that settles it. Congrats then.

 

Be sure to come back once a week (or daily, that works too) to code drop with all that new moolah.

Just to be clear, I gave him the name T-Money way long ago.  We'd have to go back into the threads to confirm it, but it's probably my only accomplishment on this forum and I'm not going go give it up, consarnit!
