Hi tracers! Today’s news is a little bittersweet - I am leaving the Center for Game Science to embark upon a new opportunity. Fortunately, we have a strong developer core here, and they have promised to take care of things in the interim as they search for your next great Community Manager. Please continue to use the forums to file your bug issues and fantastic suggestions - they already have quite the list thanks to all of you, but as you know, the work never really stops.
Keep an eye on UW Hires in the near future to find out when the position will be made available. If all goes as planned it probably won’t be up for long. It will be based on campus, here in Seattle.
Thank you so much for letting me be your Community Manager through this essential early beta period. I look forward to hearing exciting news about Mozak and the discoveries you will all make together. Also, you may see me around here contributing to a neuron or two in my spare time and making a chase on those leaderboards - it turns out I’ve also learned a thing or two about neuron reconstruction with everyone else.
In the meantime, farewell, and thank you!
Hello community! We have a few updates this afternoon for challenge closing times. Please plan accordingly, and thank you for all your hard work on these.
Mouse-ALM-13: Closing Wednesday, 5pm Pacific.
Human-FC-01: Closing Thursday, 5pm Pacific.
Mouse-V1-22: Closing Friday, 5pm Pacific.
We look forward to posting new challenges to replace the closing ones at these times.
Sorry for the last minute notice, but we’re going to need a quick downtime today at approximately 3:30pm Pacific. It should last around 15 minutes. Sorry for the disruption!
Heads up, everyone. Our developers have requested a brief downtime (approximately 10-15 minutes) to implement some changes, starting at 8PM Pacific time tonight (Tuesday). Here are some things you’ll likely notice once this is done:
You should receive emails about your progress now (be sure you have opted in!)
More challenges should fit without scrolling in the front page.
We fixed some minor annoyances when changing personal settings.
Needless to say, if these things don't work as intended you'll want to head over to our forums (click community up top) and let us know right away.
We only expect this outage to be brief, but in the event of problems we could be out for about an hour. In the event of extended issues that go longer than that, please do check in with us at Facebook and/or Twitter for updates before emailing us.
Thanks for your patience and understanding!
