Well being more active is obvious. Be more active.

Post some articles. Kooky questions. Blogging is nice, but it only targets specific target audiences.

Popularity leads to intimacy...

He'd have to move to the moon for that and I'm pretty sure VGK considers that an act of war.

Nefarious intent? Or do you just want to steal our Bradley's heart?

Tell me your reasons!

#10 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19325 posts) -

Post numerous threads ranting about the mods, staff members, beloved games and being controversial, in general.

Also, get a more unique avatar.

You need a gimmick.

Make a lot of really mundane polls.

#16 Edited by Wrighteous86 (3782 posts) -

Why do you care that much? That's an important question you should answer.

Other people have created cool things, written neat things, been assholes constantly, been insightful in lots of posts, or asked inane questions in multiple threads daily for people to riff off of. Joining in when people play games as a community helps, something I've never done.

People seem to recognize me fairly often on the forums and here is how I got there:

  • I've hosted contests and mailed people prizes.
  • I told a crazy life story from my past that was interesting to people in a gossipy way (that was inappropriate for these forums), and then I met and fell in love with a hot girl on the site from another country, who's moving in with me next year.
  • I've also given people advice on depression, weight loss, and girls. And tomorrow I'm recording the first Giant Bomb Xtreme Girl Advice Line podcast.
  • I've interacted fairly regularly with the staff in a number of forums, and they know me and have done things for me in the past. I rewarded them with Deep Dish Pizza.
  • I write long and in-depth pieces on ancillary gaming media and older games that nobody reads. Don't do that.

Also, pick an avatar pic and NEVER EVER change it. It is the key identifier to your "brand".

Most definite way to get noticed around giantbomb is to pick a fight with somebody that has seniority over you and win.

#18 Posted by Abendlaender (2783 posts) -

As a beloved and popular Giant Bomb user myself I can provide you with a number of great tips, in my upcoming book called: "I used to be a unknown user but then I took an arrow to the knee and read this book and now I'm super famous"

It will teach you everything about how to cleverly use memes that will stay relevant and funny forever.

You can't. Everyone on Giant Bomb already knows everything.

#28 Edited by MentalDisruption (1622 posts) -

Pretty much the same way that you can become more known in any community. Be productive, active, interesting, or useful in some way. But I wouldn't worry about it too much, we're all just duders in the end.

#29 Edited by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Pretend to be a girl.

You're Batman, you should be remaining in the shadows or you're doing it wrong.

#34 Posted by vegetashonor (588 posts) -

Truthfully you shouldn't worry about it. Post on forums regarding to games you like, make new friends through them, and totally just chill. That's the great thing about this site. Don't think of it as a high school popularity contest or you won't have any fun bro! :)

Be a sexy girl what makes video games, then set your own frozen body on fire to sacrifice yourself to the duder gods.

For the meager service charge of $500 I'll tell you all the secrets of Giantbomb.

Why do you want to be known? I've got close to a thousand posts no one knows who I am and let me say that it is GREAT.

No one expects anything from me or is watching me with their ever vigilant internet eyes, I'm carefree as can be.

Honestly it's all about posting consistently in whatever forum interests you. I'm pretty much a ghost outside of off-topic but I post a lot on this board.

Pick a fight with @video_game_king and show that even a god-king can bleed.

Go ahead and try.

The moon isn't real, it's just a projection that the Government set up back in the 50's to get us to work longer hours. Given that fact, I deduced that you don't actually exist. You are either a deep cover agent working for the NSA that is watching over this little hostile community, or you are just a crack pot that has a power complex with being a king. In reality, you are no king, in fact you do not even like video games.
