    MMO-Champion was bought by Curse several years ago and Boubouille eventually got promoted, with news duty then handed off to chaud.

    Just yesterday I was thinking, "Wow, Chaud is still doing this."

    Glad to see this site go that route! A dedicated staff member focused on pulling together and posting content will do wonders for Front Page content in my own opinion.

    They had a Bastion skin last year, don't see why they wouldn't have something this year too.

    I'm guessing MMOC finally realized that Chaud isn't good with computers. :O

    Whether or not you're moving onto other duties, thanks for your contributions over the years, @chaud and boub before. Almost up to 10 years with the site, and I've always enjoyed MMOC's format. I joined in most of those conference call streams you did when they were still announcing sub numbers, and boub's WoD alpha sandbox stream, and they were lots of other fun times in the past.

    Not really necessary to write a wall of text with every aspect of chaud's posts I've liked, but yeah, thanks. Just wanted to take a second to leave some positivity here.

    legal/tax technicalities aside, if you are working for/with a US based team the time difference will make things very hard when you are 6-9 hours ahead.

    Being from the future is clearly a boon when you are posting news ;D

    How many hours a week? What's the starting pay (minimum)? Full coverage (dental, health, vision)?

    You know, when applying for a job it helps to actually read the job description before asking questions. It clearly says pay is commensurate with qualifications and experience level. Failing to do so and then asking a question it already answered doesn't look good to an employer.

    Why would a work-from-home job require dental and optical benefits? I'd kind of understand these benefits if they had to travel to the premises and all, but... heck, here in the UK dental and optical benefits aren't really that common. A few companies offer it but most don't. When you're just looking for a website guy who works from home, it's not really the sort of thing you offer. It's more of a thing you offer your commuting, day-in-day-out office staff.
