In early 2005, Joshua “Raihn” Keyes volunteered to work at WCReplays.com, better known as WCR, a WarCraft community site where fellow gamers come together to share their love for the game. He obtained the position of Feature Artist where he showcased his feature Art of War.

He worked as part of the WCR staff for many years, citing the community as his source of inspiration: “I am passionate about the gaming community not just because it’s fun, but because it contributes positively to people and society in general.”

Additionally, Keyes also accomplished the positions of Graphics Staff and Writing Coordinator. As the lead graphics staff, he produced visual assets for the website, game replays, feature articles, and gaming tournaments. As Writing Coordinator, he directed the writing department and edited news articles and writing features, making sure to put forth quality content for readers.

In his youth, playing Blizzard games and connecting with its community provided a creative outlet for him.

“The games that Blizzard created captured my imagination as a youth, giving me an escape from my difficult childhood that didn’t involve drugs or delinquency,” Keyes said. “Instead the game allowed me to be a hero and fight for the forces of good in a virtual world.”

“Extending beyond my computer, I became motivated to exercise my artistic skills in an attempt to someday measure up to the culmination of visual design that was presented through the video game media,” he said. “The WCR community played a role in that, thus I was happy to give back to the community in the years that I’ve volunteered there.”
