Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Community Spotlight! Well there's a lot of housekeeping to go over this week so let's get into it! Whiskey media employee Daniel (aka Internet Daniel) has posted some Whiskey Media Quest stats worth checking out. There's a counter petition to Ryan's petition to end the NDX podcast...it is far more popular than Ryan's petition. I'm not sure where to put it but I guess this is appropriate, but a handful of users are working on a substantial Dawn of War 2 game guide. Check it out if you are interested. However probably the biggest news this week probably was the announcement of the two new additions to the mod team (PsEG & Sweep). Congratulations guys!
Then there were memes...Some think it is obnoxious or annoying to make designs or t-shirt based on every little thing that the guys talk about. I on the other hand am completely astounded by the creativity that the Giant Bomb Community is sometimes capable of! I mean check out some of these designs:

Wonderful WikisWell we have a truly unusual medley of wikis this week. The return of the great showcasable Street Fight characters is here. Blood is a fantastically written wiki for a game many have never heard of. PsEG's wiki article for the Aston race track is everything you ever needed to know about that track. If you ever needed advice on escaping a sinking car then you should check out the escaping a sinking car concept page, it's also hilarious. Finally Plants vs. Zombies gets bonus points for being a wonderfully formatted wiki.
