The Community Spotlight 02/10/2012

Many Thanks to User FoxxFireArt for the Banner!

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! As you may have noticed the publish date for the GB Community Spotlight is being moved to Fridays as I can't commit the amount of time they require on Thursdays. Another important announcement is that "PlayStation Network (Vita)" or PSNV has been added as a new platform to the database. The True Crime: Hong Kong Wiki Page is being renamed to "Sleeping Dogs," thus a separate wiki page for Sleeping Dogs is not needed. Anyways these site announcements aside always remember to check out the Bomb Shelter and to email interns@whiskeymedia.com to get content on the "Rad Stuff" tab on the front page of Giant Bomb. Finally remember to ask yourself "Are YOU Afraid You Might Get Launched Into the Sun?"

Man, 29 entries in the Blogs/Forum section. That's kind of amazing. Either ZP's working harder than ever or people are getting less shy about submitting things.

Hey ZombiePie, how do you decide what wiki articles to promote? Do people suggest them?

Actually being one of the main Wiki Mods helps even more because the Activity Feed is usually dead when I'm working on the Spotlight. You see a lot of good text submissions as well as some "creative' concept pages pop up in the Wiki Mod Queue.

Usually when you tweet about the next Community Spotlight that means you haven't got enough content for it. Here's a blog I did about that terrible YouTube app for the Xbox. Also, this is from a couple of weeks back but if you really want it here's a blog about Mass Effect 3.
