    I will be placing my response above the quotes due to the formatting of our dev posts on the front page.

    Addressing all the standing issues is top priority on my list.
    Outside of addressing these issues, I have plans to bring more contests and events both on the forums and in-game.

    MapleStory's fashion community is still very huge so I'd also like to revamp our official Tumblr page and keep it focused on styles, player interviews, and perhaps the latest hot topics in-game. While Facebook and Twitter are mostly used for keeping players updated with what's new, I'd like Tumblr to be more about what's going on in the game and the community.

    For livestreams I have plans to start a series of "Teach me how to..." and spotlight members in the community to highlight pros and cons of classes they're experts with. I had a hard time trying to find recent day guides so I hope this would be helpful for returning payers when it comes to selecting a class.

    This is just a small sample of ideas that I'm planning of course!
    While I can't promise they'll all make it through, I have many more ideas for the future.
    However, since you just got into the hot seat this will be my question. What are the first few things (that you can say) you're planning to do as a Community Manager for MapleStory?

    We're currently in discussions ni regards to the Reboot EU server.
    I will keep you guys informed when I have further updates on this topic.

    Question for the stream:
    Now that the Lagg issue have been fixed is a eu reboot server being discussed once again?

    +1. Would be great to get some info that isn't as vague as it has been up until now. I think the people in NA reboot would really enjoy having less stress on their reboot server.

    I am planning a forum restructure for next week. A number of the sections on these forums aren't used much at all and I'd like to introduce some new sections as well.
    Cleaning up these forums is absolutely on the high end of my priority list!

    Now I have a little more time.

    Are there any planned changes for the forums? I think the bug section needs a bit of a rework because its a bit of a mess along with the Maple Classifieds.

    We will have an update on the status of the VVorld Record event along with the rewards next week unless something comes up.
    Apologies on the very long delay for this particular event!

    Welcome ^^ Good luck :P

    For an AMA question -- Any update on VVorld Event rewards? It's a little bit concerning how long it takes to distribute event rewards.

    I played both Melee and Brawl (I know exactly why you didn't list Brawl ahahaha!) I mained Marth in Melee, SNake/Lucario in Brawl, and Corrin in S4.
    Real question... Melee or Sm4sh? and who do you main?


    ^^^^^ I have a Wii U. Looks like my face is safe from your foot!

    Who do you main in smash? Got smash4? Wii U or 3DS?

    If 3DS, I will kick your face in.

    With the direct launch being removed announcement I've seen many of the concerns over this decision.

    However, I can assure you that because we're moving to a more centralized method of launching MapleStory, that we will be making huge improvements to the launcher. Not just the launcher, but the patching system as well since many players have made reports that the game forces the client to be patched on numerous occasions.

    Despite this, if players are still unable to access the game, please let our CS team know and they'll do everything within their power to make sure you're able to get back into the game.

    Most urgent issue I would like you to get to work on:
    The impending removal of direct launch.

    This is going to be an unmitigated disaster. It's two weeks away and the Nexon Launcher is far from stable, and lacks some basic functionality (like telling the user they can't log in because they're banned).

    Please do whatever is in your power to keep GameLauncher.exe around at least until Nexon Launcher has all its functionality and reliability.

    http://forums.maplestory.nexon.net/discussion/10805/now-that-we-know-nexon-doesn-t-use-nexon-launcher/p1

    I will have many contests! As a huge fan of creativity, I will be sure to put this community's creativity to the test!
    Are u going to have contests like the st Patrick's day poetry contest and also have a twitch section ?

    I don't think Nexon understands that no matter what having an extra piece of software will make the game run worse no matter what..... which is why WE DON'T WANT TO USE IT. Improve the game launcher not Nexon launcher. If it isn't broken don't fix it comes to mind.

    Hello CM Arwoo!
    First of all, it's nice to meet you and I'm happy you are joining as the CM! I wish you good luck!

    During recent months, the game included a lot crash issues on logging in to the game/changing channels.
    I'm glad to annouce that finally for the first time since v1.83 (current) update, the main crash/disconnection issue was fully resolved!!
    This is the greatest fix done after a long period of time of crashes!
    I have two different PCs and the game no longer crashes while playing in EACH of them!

    I have read about the decision to to end the Direct Launch support.
    As a player who prefers to use it (and it works great now, even with no crash issues),
    a worrying things regarding the discontinuing of this feature is that it will be harder for player to switch between regions/accounts for those who own more than one account to play or who wish to switch between regions (from Europe to North America or vice versa) without the need to restart the game client for each switching.
    For more information regarding my concerns, please look at this discussion: Switching between accounts and regions easily.

    Here is a request to better the filter chat system so that the text's writer will receive the the filtered result: A better Maple: Filter chat for the text's writer.

    Another request and wish that I prefered which was included in Europe MapleStory by Nexon Europe is Return to Chracater Selection Screen, which it brings the player to the character selection screen immediately using the same world and channel used before the switching request. It's actually a request to improve the Change Character button's functionality.
    More details regarding this can be found here: Original Maple Europe contents and features.
    635349790245722607.png
    For those who is not familier with this feature - it's a button in the menu above the Quit button which enables to skip the login screen/world selection screen and it moves instantly into the character selection screen using the last same world and channel you used to be logged in with your character, greatly useful for switching between different characters quickly and smoothly/relogging in quickly.

    Special thank you for your contribution to the game and community!

    I have a great suggestion to help you out! Why don't you start a mega thread and sticky it to the top of the appropriate forum sub-section. Seperate them by questions, suggestions, and issues. And then seperate each one by their current status. Like which things have been answered/resolved/approved, what's pending, and what gets rejected.

    And you can update the thread on a weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly basis. Trust me when I say this, forumers are unforgiving when it comes to introducing something and then never following-up. What we want more than anything is good communication and reasonable transparency. So far your words have provided me with hope for this game.

    Hello Again, I have a secondary question:

    Why did we get secondary notifications in the chat box when people sign in? I (I think everyone) finds this to be annoying and rather poorly implemented. Not only does it give you multiple notifications (Ex: Guild + Friend) but it's just not necessary. Was this just a bug?

    Secondly, when we loot honor, it just clutters the all chat tab. Shouldn't this honor go into the battle tab? I can barely follow my guild when they ask me questions. Its just intrusive.

    I agree with you regarding the Honor exp. It definitely belongs in the Combat tab.

    But I disagree about the login notifications. I find them useful, because I like being able to scroll up when I return from AFK and see who I missed.
    Perhaps we should be allowed to toggle whether we want to see these or not.

    It should definitely have the option to be allowed to toggle on/off. When I go afk and return, my entire screen is filled with [character] has logged in. It's a good thing that we can save more conversations on our chatbox than previously BUT it's still glitched for me sometimes when I scroll up. The honor exp is and has been annoying af for quite some time now.

    Well, looks like we got a new sheriff in town.

    Pleasure to meet ya, Arwoo.

    Most folks already hit most of the more critical nails on the head, but I was wondering about revisions (more like additions) to the RP shop.

    Namely, the addition of a monthly allotment of RP store bonus potential cubes and nebulite tickets.

    While not nearly as critical as botting and login issues, I ask that more light was shed on adding these items, for the sake of better equality ingame between f2ps and p2ws.
