D'oh. I didn't make it in time. :p

I was sure to pack in as many breasts as I could into that image, because apparently breasts piss people off.

First.

Some of those links are broken. Including mine. Just a heads up.

All the links are broken.

Yeah, you accidentally added your own username to most of the links that go to people's profiles. It'll probably be fixed by the time anyone reads this though.
 
As always, appreciate the plug. I have a feeling that list sort of erred towards "experimental" rather than "entertaining".

@ArbitraryWater: @RubberFactory: @Mento: Annnnnd we should be kosher. Trust me when I say that I have done far worse. For those that can remeber to the single stickied days may remember the formatting catastrophe I had back then.

Ha. Dude that's a great list. 
 
Thanks for featuring my ramblings again, Zombie!  
 
I'll try to post some recommendations for next week. I always mean to, but often forget. 
 

EDITS!

There's a wiki page for breasts now? 
 
...this site is now complete.

Posted by Mooqi

Thanks for featuring my review! ...and thanks for those spotlights in general. There are some gems here on the site that would otherwise been unknown to me...

Posted by SMTDante89

Not sure if it's Spotlight worthy, but I put a good bit of work into this.

Posted by BlazeHedgehog

But yeah, if you hadn't already counted my Tweet as something to consider for next week, allow me to suggest this blog.

Posted by RubberFactory
@ZombiePie:  Thanks, great job as usual.
Posted by LordAndrew

Is it weird that I've apparently already recommended that Captain N list? I also created Comic Vine's Captain N character page, so I'm pretty sure I'm a bad person.

Yes, for a long time. I created it, and I once added so many aliases that Jeff had to tell the community to stop adding joke aliases to pages.
Edited by Claude

Thanks for the mention. I love looking back at old magazines. I should go into more detail. I'm thinking of doing another one this week if I have time.

In an effort to force as much Pokemon as possible into the Community Spotlight, I recommend Pokemon Gold/Silver.

Just think...there is a whole wave of users that don't understand that refernce, never posted in a Bomb Squad thread, or know what a Bombing Run is. 
 
Think about it.
