The Community Spotlight - 04/14/2011 (The Return of The Starlet!)



Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight. This week we are going to do things differently than normal. As opposed to having me ramble on about the current events of the site which most people gloss over me and fellow mod mracoon believe that now is the time to mark the return of the Giant Bomb Community Starlet! As you may or may not remember the Starlet was a short lived series on Giant Bomb run by former intern Lemon. Wanting to continue the good tradition of that series mracoon has written up a nice Starlet about the Wiki fiend StarFoxA. I hope you enjoy and look forward to any suggestions about future editions of this series:

The Giant Bomb Community Starlet! - featuring SarFoxA -

 This week the coveted title of Community Starlet goes to the wiki editing monster that is StarFoxA. Getting to 228,712 wiki points (a number which has most likely gone up since this was posted) is no easy feat and it rightfully puts him second on the list of top wiki editors. Some of StarFoxA's more impressive pages are Chrono Trigger, Mario (franchise), Left 4 Dead (franchise), Mother 3 and, of course, Star Fox Command. My personal favorite page of his is for JoyJoy, a title which might not be well known as it's an Xbox Live Indie Games but SFA still gives it a quality page.

Speaking of Indie Games, StarFoxA has got you covered with a comprehensive look back at the best titles released for the service last year as well as several reviews to help you decide what games are worth your hard earned cash. On top of that, he also has a range of lists for you to enjoy including a sizeable gaming collection and every game he's ever completed, of which there are many. If that isn't enough for you, StarFoxA has been a regular contributor to the Delete & Combine forum helping to get rid of unnecessary or duplicate pages from the database.

So give StarFoxA a hand for being Giant Bomb's Community Starlet for the week! If you think you know somebody who deserves recognition for their work on GB, then give your suggestions and they might end up being selected for next week.

Awesome job as always, man!

Posted by Sparklykiss

SarFoxA is a much cooler dude than StarFoxA.

Also: I am a jerk and I LOVE LISTS, OH MAN. This could be just lists for forever and I would be okay with that.

Totally forgot about the Community Starlet articles. I'm glad to see it make a return.

Props to StarFoxA for all his hard work! I know he's the guy to go to if I am in the mood for indie games, too!


I was looking at Mentos'  Anime Is For Jer-pergers list earlier and it made me feel bad for being so terrible at finishing games in that genre. :(

Anyway, lots of good stuff to go through, and thanks again for always mentioning my contests.

I approve of 1/2 of those lists being tennis related.

This should be a news item. Deserves to be on the front page.

Because of StarFoxA, I bought some Indie games a few months back.

Congrats to StarFoxA, definitely deserves some accolade for that amount of work. But not some Accolade games. Because no-one deserves that.

Getting mentioned twice makes me feel fresh and full of life for some reason.

Hey, thanks for the recognition, ZombiePie and mracoon! Glad that my contributions to completely unknown indie games doesn't go entirely unnoticed. :P

I'm just waiting for the next installment. Hope you're still playing indie games.

StarFoxA?  More like NOOBFOXA, AMIRITE?!  Seriously, though...he showed me his penis once.  It was unsanitary.  O_O

Grats on the Starlet thing, though.  I'm going to go back to being retired.

Good to see StarFoxA getting some recognition, the dude has contributed a crazy amount to the site. As well as shamelessly plugging my own blog for next week's spotlight I also have to suggest this gem about Bioshock's critique of the works of Ayn Rand.

I think ZombiePie should write a community starlet piece about himself.

I was going to suggest that, but then I couldn't remember if he was one of the few already featured.

No to writing it or no to already being featured?

@ZombiePie: I like the community starlet idea.....if you would like me to author bios on certain wiki editors that are picked for the starleet let me know and I could probably do that.
