The Community Spotlight - 10/06/2011

 

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! As far of recent events worth mentioning the most important to talk about is the fact that the engineers are testing PSN trophies for premium members. Non subscribers don't worry, once all the bugs have been ironed out. Also worth noting is the fact that some trophies are not being listed in the system this is due to something on Sony's side, as the trophies people are reporting missing are also missing from Sony's site. Also for UK user please read this by Jeff about a survey related to ads. Just for funsies Patrick Klepek has his very own Screened Person Page. Also Sean Coonce wants you to help Jeff buy a new car. Also the Persona 4 anime has started airing so check out this simulcast schedule on Anime Vice if you haven't already. Finally as always remember to check out the Bomb Shelter and Giant Bomb YouTube Channel.

Are you saying that I get tons of pussy? These insult-links are getting stranger and stranger.

Posted by Guided_By_Tigers

Yeah what's up with the strange links?

@Video_Game_King: I think I'd prefer being an aging lothario over a crossdressing trespasser. Especially if I had a lisp.

Hey people, write more lists or I'll keep making dumber ones. It's no idle threat, as you can plainly see.

Once upon a time I accidentally linked Video_Game_King's to the Wikipedia article on Nero while doing a paper on Ancient Rome. He made a big deal about it and linking certain usernames to things became my "Easter Egg." It was better when links not on Whiskey Media sites didn't have those icons and most people didn't notice them. Also I try to hide an Easter Egg in every Spotlight. 
@Mento: I'm running out of Freshmaker commercials. It broke my heart when I realized I had to use a second generation commercial with the "updated" jingle.

Actually, I did some digging around, and it was James Buchanan first, as far as I can tell. When you did the Nero one, you wrote Emperor_Nero.

@Video_Game_King: That's right I took that Civil war class...it's all coming together now. All I will say is that the first time I did was completely by accident.

I actually remember catching a few glimpses of that civil war. Those things always make me laugh my ass off. I'm surprised that there's never one soldier who yells, "Stop hitting yourself."

Week 2, not sure if I will keep these up, until then..

Congrats everyone! I should have been more active in the wiki department, but I work too much at Giant Bomb's sister site, Anime Vice, since I have two teams that I have to collaborate with.

Hey Zombiepie, may I ask you to spotlight Sothe's page? It took me three weeks to go over my notes and secondary sources.

Also, may I ask you to spotlight Senran Kagura for the combined efforts of Mr. XD and FluxwaveZ? It's pretty detailed and has a character table.

Thanks, ZombiePie!

Oh yes, I will put a special blog in the future for everyone who worked on Fire Emblem. It'll be similar to what I do for Fairy Tail wiki editors on AV.

@ZombiePie: Thanks for the plug!

Yay we got on. Hopefully this will garner some attention.

Might as well throw up my last two blogs and prepare writing that Hugo Chavez entry.
