Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm not sure to whom I should be passing these compliments along, but the new BSN looks AMAZING! A sadistic part of me is going to miss the cluttered, early-2000s look of the old BSN but man, does the new forum look and function so good.
Thank you so much! It was a huge project in the making by a really swell team and I’m so proud of the work that went into it. We are definitely supporting more post-launch features to roll out including more ways to interact, alternate skins, even more privacy functions, and making the tools easier and more fun.
I wish Picard would drunk text me.

Anonymous asked: Some people on here are upset by the fact that only certain countries can enter the voice contest and are unsure if it's because of laws or discrimination against English-second-language countries. (I don't think it's the second one, but I've seen many offended people use that as their basis for being offended). Could you clarify?
My understanding is that it’s a legal thing, as is usually the case when it comes to contests and prizes, since laws about them can change greatly between territories and countries. I have no knowledge of specifics, however. This would be a question to ask of someone in Community (like Jessica Merizan) and not myself. Try it. She won’t bite.
Or someone can simply assume that BioWare doesn’t like your country/province (or the District of Columbia), despite the fact that we have many accents in Dragon Age—and, even if we didn’t, people with perfectly valid accents live everywhere in the world. Up to them, I guess.
I feel badly for anyone who got excited prior to checking out the rules/eligibility section of the contest and discovering they’re ineligible. That would indeed suck. :(
It is purely for legal reasons. I can’t expand simply because the laws are confusing to me and the particulars vary by country, but ultimately there’s a lot of red tape that would have delayed or prevented the contest all together. We are working with our regional marketing teams to align on more Europe and Asia initiatives <3 And I was just on the phone with our lovely wonderful localization producer Melanie Fleming about translations and cool things we want to do, so no discrimination here. I’m so sorry that’s something people are concerned about. We love all our fans around the globe - Gamescom is personally one of my favorite conventions!!!

That’s my Riker. If you aren’t in the know, this blog combines screen caps from Star Trek episodes with anonymous submissions (minus area code) from a Tumblr called “Texts from Last Night”! Love.

Daria and Jane cosplay reveal at GeekGirlCon. Growing up watching this secretly in my playroom at age eleven explains a lot about who I am. Oh 1997. @commanderholly #nofilter
