Giant Bomb's Community Starlet 10/15/10

Here's someone you should know.


      Maybe not today and maybe not tomorrow, but someday. 

Aside from taking your fantastic non-Jeff Bridges related questions during our live shows; I like to scan the forums for the most highly refined, yet flamboyant community contributions. Now I won’t go into too much detail since ZombiePie’s Community Spotlight already highlights your well-written wiki entries, lovable user lists, and off the wall podcasts. Instead, I’m going to hand pick one piece of content that deserves some front page glory.

Giant Bomb is no slouch when it comes to high production value, but sometimes we leave it to you guys to provide us with strong promotional content. That said, our Thursday Night Throwdown promo banners have frequently been given the the Photoshop treatment with the help from B0nd07. Take a look at a few of his images and familiarize yourself with some of the past weeks' TNT promos. 


   "B0nd07 has another strong entry this week." - Ryan Davis 
B0nd07 continues to submit great work, and we can't wait to see the "Make this week's TNT promo" thread flare up with more contributions. Many thanks to all our contributors who have previously helped us splash those charming promos on our homepage. Don't forget, QOTW is another feature where your creative voices can be heard by Drew in the editing room, and then published to the masses. No, seriously, Drew has to sit there and edit your amateur videos.

Seriously, someone needs to make a Nuts & Bolts TNT banner.

Wow!  Never thought this would happen.  Thank you, Steve!

When I first saw the Medal of Honor TNT image it made my soul happy. 
Excellent work.

As do I. This is a good idea.

@wolf_blitzer85: Internet famous at that!  I never thought I'd get Pimp My Profile, but now I'm watching the counter sky-rocket!   [Edit] And now it's done.

@Andrela: @FinalDasa: @Demoskinos: @TheSeductiveMoose: Thanks!

The same kid who ruined the QOTW, is now attempting to promote it. Delicious ironing?

Hah, nice. 
 
Lemon's last name is Ramirez? He must be related to the Ramirez in MW2!

Posted by Yummylee

Who the shit is Steve?...Lemon?!?..Steve's just far too plain of a name for you D=

Posted by Berezov

This is a great, hopefully I can submit something that will recognised amongst the staff and community.  
 
Actually saying that, Steve could you ask Ryan and Alex if they remember the 24 game Video Review they did, I made a terrible remix of it a while ago and got a message from Ryan telling me that the entire staff at Gamespot watched it.

OOOOOOHH! Lemon posted this...that Steve. I was wondering who the hell Steve Ramirez was.
This is a good idea to inspire even more involvement in the community. I feel the community is largely ignored by Giant Bomb.

Posted by artofwar420

This is an excellent idea Limón.

Woah, woah, woah. Screened may be a little more in-tune with community thanks to Community Spotlight, but Giant bomb has a closer relationship to their community than ANY other gaming website.
Posted by Sin4profit
@Kajaah117:  GB could learn from Screened in that regard and this post suggests it maybe going that way, It's a good start towards what i'm saying about the community involvment connecting to the main page. 
Though, as far as "more then ANY other Gamesite" i remember Screw Attack having a much closer relationship with their community.
At least that's how it comes across to me.
Edited by Kajaah117
@Sin4profit: Fair point. But uh... me and a few hundred other people are usually in the passenger seat of the car Jeff and Ryan drive home in a few times a week. It doesn't get much closer than that. =P

The Civ V one is awesome. Especially Brad.

That's why Ryan calls him Internet Steve.
