AcidBay would like to welcome Paul to our staff, he will be known on the network and game as Don_Paul. He is joining us as a new Admin, and he will also be taking over the majority of the programming and development of the game.
Paul is an experienced & accomplished programmer, security expert and business advisor. He has a proven track record as the former CEO of an IT security company, which was eventually acquired by Arm. To put that in everyday terms, part of the security technology that powers “smart” devices (such as your smartphone, tablets, smart light bulbs, etc.) was developed by Paul.
As most of the community knows, I have been struggling with my health this past year, so Paul will be taking up a lot of the slack that I have been left unable to do either due to my health or lack of programming knowledge. He is an expert programmer, is very familiar with how our servers work, and is an avid (board and online) gamer. I have brought him on board to help push AcidBay to the level we have all dreamed it will reach.
Some of the things you can expect to happen in the near future include:
Paul will be reaching out to players for any suggestions you have, specifically any issues you’ve had with the game, how it can be improved, etc.
Patrick and I will still be around and reachable, but from this point forward feature and support requests should be directed to Don_Paul through the site’s chat system (the same way you’re used to contacting me).
