What I am saying is that when the devs post in other threads, I would rather prefer they had their job description under their avatars, than retrieving this thread to check what they do in RIFT.
This will also be useful so we can ask specific question to a specific developer who knows better about the subject we are discussing.
I think it's a good idea. Now that I think about it, I can't name a game's forum that actually has that.
So well that they didn't even bring the crafting dev into irc for us when promised. =(
So much fun to read all of the introductions, I do wonder how big the team actually is tho seems like a endless supply of dev love . Hope to meet some of you at GamesCom *HINT HINT* Feel free to mention who are going :P
Man, I am so late to this welcoming party .
Just wanted to say hello and thank you in advance for the many sleepless nights you are putting in to make this game as awesome as I'm sure it is going to be.

Such an awesome thread!
It's very exciting to see so many brilliant minds working on Rift. This is gonna be good!
Iím Brian Morin, a Senior Software Engineer on Rift working mainly on Networking and Database stuff, but Steve, Peter and Buddy let me touch gameplay code every now and then.
I have been building distributed system software professionally for around a dozen years. Projects Iíve been a part of include Microsoft IIS (intern), MSN Communities, Xbox Live (launch team member) and Battle.net 2.0 (first engineer focused on it full time.) Between projects Iím a successful mid/high stakes cash game poker player. However, my true passion is building really cool stuff with bright people and Trion has given me the chance to do that in spades.
My MMO history started with playing Asheronís Call Darktide (open PvP server) for over a year. Had a short run playing DAOC, but spent a lot of time playing WoW. I was an officer in a raiding guild through classic WoW and Burning Crusade then continued to play at a little more relaxed pace.
