Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! This week we have a sizable amount of sites news to go over! As you may have noticed the site got a recent revision! If you have any strong opinions about the site revision (positive or negative) head on over to this thread. If you have found any major bugs on the site check out this thread. For those of you that think Giant Bomb has too many concept pages you might want to read this response by Jeff on his Formspring. Tony (aka G-Man) from Comic Vine celebrated his birthday on the 24th. Also Comic Vine has a new Community Twitter account worth checking out.
