Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! A lot has been happening across all Whiskey Media sites most of which pertain to the re-launched and redesigned version of the Whiskey Media home site! In fact if you have any strong opinions about the new Whiskey Media site and its new direction publish them here!

Lovable ListsLast week you may remember that I brought Marino's low list rating to your attention. Well congratulations Giant Bomb Community because we got the wiki master's lists to an above 80% recommendation rating. Mission Accomplished! However it has unfortunately come to my attention that PsEG also was struck by this troll and I forgot to mention him. So if you can please help out!
