The StarCraft Community is one of the largest, most vocal, and most dedicated fan communities to exist around a game or franchise and ever since the leaders of the community met with Blizzard officially last year, at the first RTS Community Summit, we have increasingly been officially recognized. To help our partnership to continue to grow Blizzard recently added a new page to - the "Community" page.

This page's banner is made up from fan art and the page is soley dedicated to features for, by, and from the community. In addition to linking to several community resources it also features some of Blizzard's favorite user created StarCraft content. This page has some very ambitious goals and while it is currently sparse, it has potential to become a great resource. Keep watching for more improvements and products that spawned from the community's group brainstorm with Blizzard.

Also, several days ago a new job posting went up at - Assistant Community Manager.
