I am happy to announce that ONM stalwarts Matthew Castle and Joe Skrebels have been promoted! Depending on who you ask the promotions are either a just reward for their continued dedication to the cause or an admin error of epic proportions.
Joe now patrols the office with the words 'News Editor, Boi!' emblazoned across his forehead - because can - and will now assume control of the ONM website and social channels as well as continuing his awesome work on the print and digital editions.
Matthew has been promoted to captain of the good ship ONM, a position that seemingly fulfills every dream his chocolate-coated, floaty-light mind has ever conceived. Bless. Loyal readers need not fear that the wage increase will affect the quality of paper ONM enjoys because, naturally, Matthew's incentive will be provided by knocked-off boxes of Wispa Golds rather than actual monies. . . because can.
I'm sure you'll all join me in congratulating both Matthew and Joe, who, on a serious note, fully deserve their new positions.
ONM subscribers, who will be receiving their copies of ONM104 from today, will also discover that the February issue will be my last at the helm before I hand over to Matthew. I will be stepping down from my position as Editor-In-Chief of Nintendo Projects at Future Publishing and will be moving onto new things.
I would like to thank you all for putting up with my ego-driven return to the ONM stable. Much like Michael Schumacher's return (Matthew, this is an F1 reference, just so you understand), I took a lot and I'm not entirely convinced that I gave anything back. Still, it was a fun 20 months, right?
