I am sorry this happened.

there is some territorial situations happening around camp.

and confusion about where and what is the "media" group.

Thorin is, as far as I know today, an indy livestream team, not

accountable to the GA.

 

I have experience working with this team and want to know more about

your experience. Please find me. Ask around for Dallas.

 

I would like there to be cohesion and cooperation within the groups in

media. I also think there should be a better organized media area for

all of us. work in progress.
