Hey guys!

 

Wanted to drop you a note and let you know that Josh just texted me. He's unable to post right now due to his account being new and unapproved. I just sent Cheapy an email about it though so hopefully he's able to post soon.

 

He's super excited to jump in and start posting. I should have mentioned this earlier, Josh an I are super good friends in addition to being co-workers, I'm confident you'll find him as engaging (or not) as you found me.

 

Talk to you all soon :).

 

Cheers,

Tony

This is exactly what I think about while listening to music.

Typically I could care less but in her case so much of her music is personal and based on experience. Plus, you were the one that mentioned the drugs.

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

Congrats Tony

Congrats on the promotion, and thanks for all your hard work here, Tony.  Don't stop making the deals until you run the whole damn place.

 

Then come back and give us 75% off Skyrim DLC.

Congrats, Tony! Happy for you and sorry to see you go at the same time.  Like others have said, we'll be glad to hear from you whenever you stop by the thread in the future.

 

Question: does this mean you can accept gifts from us now?

this, add me on Steam Tony, since you're no longer in charge of DVG, I should be able to gift you any game I please. (especially Bad Rats)

Congratulations Tony!

 

Thanks for all those countless sales you've pushed through over the past few years. Also, thanks for helping to build a great community here on CAG. It's one of the reasons I started to contribute rather than meander through the threads. I hope to see you around on occasion.

 

Welcome Josh! If you and Tony are as good of friends as Tony says you are, then I'm confident my backlog will continue to expand nicely. If I could offer a small ounce of advice, just don't oversell us on a deal and then show up with a half eaten bagel. CAGs tend to hope for home runs far too often (guilty as charged, but I've adjusted to the jargon) and I'm sure you'll come to understand that eventually (if you didn't already know). In all seriousness though, welcome, we're glad to have you aboard J-Waffles.

I thought When The Pawn........ was her best album, but none of them were that challenging to get into, except for the Idler Wheel......

Yeah, I think that may be my favorite as well. By challenging, I mainly mean that some of the songs don't follow the mainstream pop sensibilities - especially a lot of the tracks on the bootleg release of Extraordinary Machine. Of course, musical accessibility is highly subjective and all.

That's my alt, I'm holding it hostage until I get a payout from Amazon. Domain squatting is so yesterday, it's all about forum user name squatting now.

Well, there's no better time than now to come out of stealth.

Hi, I'm finix616 and I'm a CAG.

Now that the formalities are out of the way...

Congratulations on the promotion, Tony!

From what I've seen in my time as a lurker and since I signed up here

you did a tremendious job here and I'm saddened to see you leave.

All the best in your new position.

 

Hey Josh, watch yourself.

Some of these guys are hyenas...or toasters...

Hope your first sales event is gonna survive the scrutiny of this community.

I wish you best of luck and most of all...

Have Fun!!!

 

ps. I can't be the only one who likes J-Waffels, right?

What's "Killing Floor"?

Trampolines are SOOOOOO dangerous. Maybe he's a living on the edge kinda guy (cue vid/gif response)
