Staff Farewell Tribute to Tony “RadarX” Jones

Posted Thu, May 21, 2009 by Cody Bye

After spending four years with the Ten Ton Hammer network, Tony "RadarX" Jones is moving on. His destination is Tucson, Ariz., where he's taking over the Community Manager position at Sony Online Entertainment's studio, the same studio that released the well-received Pox Nora online miniatures game. In this article, the Ten Ton Hammer staff looks back at Radar's many years with the team, and the many lives he influenced in the process.

It was on a late September evening a lifetime ago in Internet years (2005), fittingly at an SOE community summit, where I first bumped into Tony. EverQuest 2 was a huge part of our network at that point, and I was looking for someone to take over the site. Through a fuzzy alcohol haze, I discovered that mild-mannered, even-keeled Tony had the knowledge, skill, and especially the sense of humor necessary to be our EQ2 lead.
