The Community Spotlight - 01/12/2012

Welcome One and All!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Now onto the site announcements worth talking about. Engineer Alexis is working on a wiki redesign stuff that Dave is saying is looking pretty amazing. It's going to be a longer project, but expect major cleanup on the way wikis are formatted and written soon. The "Download/Play Now" and "You have 1 New Message!" ads are gone forever. If you see any send an email to daniel@whiskeymedia.com. New t-shirts and a poster are available to purchase at the Whiskey Media Store. Jeff was named the 12th "Biggest Celebrity in the Video Game Industry" by Complex.com. If you are a subscriber check out the second and third parts to the behind the scenes videos of the Game of the Year Content as well as the latest Jar Time video. As always remember to check out the Bomb Shelter for the latest and greatest in community created content as well as to email interns@whiskeymedia.com to get content on the "Rad Stuff" tab on Giant Bomb. Finally Giant Bomb user Focks_Macleod has created a new Persona 4 anime x Endurance Run mashup worth watching:

I would make a comment, but I decided to be first first.

@WatanabeKazuma: I'm clean, but my breath smells funny. Must be something in my teeth. Anyone got floss?

the video would have been better if you could understand what the mirror was saying... so muffled.

Would it? That depends on what ER clips were used for the mirror. Since I can't understand any of it, I can't say either way.

Congrats everyone!

Oh, they have beginner guides, too? It's in a different format not like in a blog form. A beginner guide for Skies of Arcadia and Fire Emblem sounds like a great idea. What a strange coincidence, I just wrote a Beginner guide for Rave Master at Anime Vice yesterday. Sweet! I got another goal or two in Giant Bomb. Thanks everyone!

How do I make a guide in Giant Bomb with that format?

Edit:

Ruby and Goro's page are done by Daouzin, Upryse, Kupatrupa, Kyle, Lukeweizer (Goro only), and I. I just expanded weapon section, added the manual's bio, and organized the page with headers.
