Admins of Dream Cancel and Orochinagi interview MLG

At the table: admin of Dreamcancel, Desmond Delaghetto, admin of Orochinagi, Alan “Gunsmith” Francois, with the MLG Community Manager, Carlos Arvelo, and Stream Producer, Arturo Sanchez.

—————————————

Alan: Hello Carlos, was good to speak to you the other day. It’s been a while since we first made contact. How have things been since Anaheim?

Carlos: Thanks, I appreciate you reaching out to me after all. I’m sorry it took this long to get things worked out so we could do this interview but it seems we’re on the right track now. Anaheim was huge for us in a lot of different ways and it was the biggest event I have ever been to as a gamer – including Evo 2012. I have been working on figuring out a plan to have everyone play nice in the competitive gaming space since there are so many opportunities for all the players out there.

Desmond: I think we should formally introduce you to the community, please tell us who you are and what your role entails!

Carlos: My name is Carlos Arvelo I am from Long Island NY. I grew up in local arcades and later played at Chinatown Fair like most guys my age (29) so I guess you could say I’m old enough to have seen the rise and fall of arcades lol but young enough to help the culture stay alive. I am the fighting game community manager for MLG in their partnership with the Sony PlayStation brand. I am sort of a liaison to both companies that MLG would consult before making final decisions on what directions to move with the league in regards to titles, event dates, and what would be the best way not to step on anyone’s toes. In other words I’m asked what games might currently be popular enough to be included in the season, or what the community might like to see in the way of exhibitions, online tournaments, Sony kiosk events, etc.

Dream Cancel Chatango Chat Box

In an effort to replace the wibiya toolbar chat which provided members to chat while they were visiting the site and forums, we have now installed a chatango group chat which is on the sidebar of the homepage.

The full sized version of the group page is here: http://dreamcancel.chatango.com/

When you hit the “set name” button, you can choose to be anonymous, have a temporary name, or sign-up to create a profile.  Only signed-up members can receive private messages. Feel free to add your location, and gamertags (PSN, XBL, GGPO etc) of your choice to your profile.  It will show up as a small pop-up when someone hovers your name in the chat box.

The chat box is not embedded on the forums, so you will need to open the full size link, or keep the front homepage open.

For any questions, comments, feedback, or to report troublesome or weird activity post it up in the thread here: http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=2386.msg56071#new
