BigMaster is a moderator for Mega Man Maker's community services and a former beta tester for the game. He started out focusing primarily on the wiki but due to his interest on moderating other platforms and the team's shortage on staff at the time, he moved to also moderate the forums and the Discord server. He sought to address issues in the Mega Man Maker community. In the development team, he contributed with some sprites in addition to his work as a tester.
BigMaster applied for the role of Wiki moderator and was accepted in trial phase on July 14, 2019 alongside Justazag and ALUMOX. They applied on a moderator call opened that month due to the shortage of moderators in the team at the moment, especially in the forums and the Wiki. He and Justazag were ascended to full Wiki moderators on August 19, 2019. BigMaster worked with RollerC to update and overhaul the Wiki's policies. He would also work to expand the list and functions of wiki templates, like adding a separate template.
Following RollerC's resignation on November 4, 2019, BigMaster decided to apply as a global moderator in order to get issues in the community solved faster. He was accepted as a trial forum and Discord moderator on November 26, 2019. He was ascended to full Discord moderator on January 5, 2020 alongside Midas Magnezone and full forum moderator on January 9, 2020. However, he decided to become less active in the middle of 2020 as a Discord moderator citing personal stress.
BigMaster made a forum thread with Frequently Asked Questions based on those in the Discord server in order to clarify some things for forum users, especially those who are not in the Discord server. In the Discord server, BigMaster modified the channel #mmm_streams to allow more kind of videos about Mega Man Maker being posted in the channel, renaming it #mmm_streams_and_videos. He also renamed the "MMM Streamer" role to "MMM Content Creator".
BigMaster applied as a beta tester in a public call and was selected on August 23, 2020 alongside DoctorLumen, while Objectionable would be selected the next day. Previously, he made a Mega Man Maker mod where he tried to modify some tilesets to adjust them better with the autotiler, but he decided to discontinue its development and release what he could do since he considered the task time-consuming and he wanted to have space for beta testing in case he was accepted.
BigMaster contributed to create the promotional image for the Server upgrade announcement along with BNMotive and Alex. While Alex made the initial drawing, BigMaster made the inking and initial digitalization, but due to difficulties while coloring the image and making outlines, BNMotive finished the image. In addition to that, BigMaster and Alex contributed to edit one of Dr. Light's poses to make him look angry as one of the sprites for the same announcement. In addition to making some NES and custom-made aesthetic assets, he also fixed some of the NES tilesets BushBacon submitted for 1.7.0.
BigMaster decided to leave the moderation team on October 28, 2020 due to personal stress. He left the development team shortly before the release of 188.8.131.52 due to what he described as severe headaches and fears of either getting in worse condition or facing termination due to a worsening performance. He has expressed dissatisfaction with his work in the development team due to considering that his work was rushed and that he did not have enough experience or training in any position, although he has also become more critical of the game development.
With a successful application between June and July of 2021, BigMaster was accepted as a Challenge judge alongside D-Man, Random Met and phunguy06. He was also selected as a member of the Wiki Strike Team to assist in the wiki's restoration after the server got damaged. After seeing modding tutorials by Croby, BigMaster made a test mod where he added some aesthetic assets and music made by him in addition to expanding somewhat on fixing and reinterpreting already existing tiles. He returned to the moderation team on June 13, 2022 to handle the Discord server and the Wiki, although he would focus more on the Wiki due to the insufficient staff for Wiki moderation at the moment.
He offered to be a writer for Light Labs. Inc, a Mega Man Maker magazine based on The Shroom from Super Mario Wiki, but due to loss of interest and lack of any achievement the members of said magazine agreed to disband. He is also a video creator and works in Mega Man: Four Hounds primarily as a spriter.
