Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! As we watch another week pass it is time to recognize the Birthdays of a few Giant Bomb notables. Jeff turned 36 this week and Ryan's brother also celebrated his birthday but the Community blessed him with a photoshop thread. A new month means there's a new Wiki Task Initiative, and the theme for this month is Ninjas! Finally Giant Bomb and to certain extent Whiskey media has been hit with Mustache madness! Not only that but Giant bomb has been hit with yet another cheap knockoff clone site! As you are likely up in arms with this news how about I calm you all down with the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Starlet!
Community Starlet: Claude
When thinking of the beginning of time two things come to mind: the Big Bang and Claude. Since man has existed Claude has been there to offer his sagely advice to all that need it and defend the Wii against all that oppose it. Even against our very own Jeff. For that reason he is this weeks Community Starlet.
Recently Claude has hit the milestone of surpassing 10,000 forum posts, a feat which only a handful of members have achieved. He even wrote a blog about this momentous occasion which manages to incorporate his sweet, sweet beard. If you've ever run across Claude in the forums you'll know that, for better or for worse, he will always speak what's on his mind and will tell it like it is. Going through his older blogs is like reading the diary of a madman, an entertaining madman though.
Apart from his antics on the boards, Claude also has quite a few lists that are worth viewing. Some of the more notable ones are The Real Citizen Kane's of Gaming, The Top 9 Claudes and the fittingly bizarre EGM #112 November 1998 N64 Reviews because, you know, Claude. On the wiki side of things the old man hasn't made too many edits but he has spent some time on the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 page back when Tiger was allowed to be on the cover on his own.
Once again lets congratulate Claude and his beard on being this weeks Starlet and remember to give your recommendations for the future Starlets.
