Community managers out in force at PAX Prime

Perusing the schedule for PAX Prime in Seattle reveals a startling number of populated by and dedicated to community managers. There appear to be six (technically five) panels alone on the subject and numerous panels with a community manager on board to explain some aspect of the video games industry.

The story is too old to be commented.

Online Gaming Communities and "Real Life" Relationships
Are you are a member of one or more online gaming website communities? Perhaps the friendships and relationships you formed online have made their way into your everyday "real life". You are certainly not alone. We will discuss the communities we have created and support, and how they impact real life relationships for gamers of all types. This was one of the more popular panels at the inaugural PAX East.

Panelists include: Derek “DSmooth” Nolan [Co-Founder / Host, / 2old2type Radio], Chloe “PMS Kitty” Brown [Co-Founder / Community Manager, GamerchiX / PopChiX] , Cathlin “Catastrophe” Sentz [Reviews Editor / Community Manager, /], Ryan “H2O Rip” Chaply [Product Manager, PMS | H2O], Aaron “HMXhenry” Trites [Community Manager, Harmonix]

:) Definitely hits the identity vs. spokesperson identity conundrum.
