The Community Spotlight - Late Edition - (Starlet Included!)

Hello? Is This Thing On?

Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! Now as you probably have noticed it has been a long road getting from last week's Community Spotlight to this one. We have all survived the Great Crash or better known as the Whiskeyocalypse of 2011! During which we all learned a lot. Firstly in the event that Skynet were to try to take over the world the men and women of Whiskey Media will be leading the resistance at Coit Tower. Radio Dave should be made a weekly feature. Engineer Alexis is more than meets the eye when it comes to Mortal Kombat, as well as many other things! Beyond that please remember to check out the new and improved Forum FAQs and remember that the rules about the types of images you can upload onto the site have been rectified. beyond that I'm going to hand things over to mracoon to talk about the latest Giant Bomb Community Starlet:

Community Starlet

Welcome back to another edition of the Giant Bomb Community Starlet which this week is awarded to user Killjoi. You may have seen his handywork on some pages for popular games like Bulletstorm, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Final Fantasy XII, Dragon Age II and the much anticipated Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Those are only a handful of the pages to which he has contributed as can be seen by his wiki points total of nearly 80,000, an amount that deserves some serious recognition. I always appreciate it when a user takes the time to edit some pages of lesser known games, something which Killjoi has done with Dreamkiller. It's a shooter that most people have probably forgotten about but after reading through the page you should have all the knowledge you'll ever need. A favourite wiki of mine has to be for Raziel, the amount of information packed in for this Legacy of Kain (an awesome page too) character is just crazy.

If that isn't enough content for you then Killjoi has an ample supply of very highly rated lists for your viewing pleasure. His username is definitely misleading as the lists he makes always give you a good laugh. Want to see some terrible video game ads? How about some unintentionally funny ESRB descriptions? Or my personal pick ' Gaming Peeps Say the Darndest Things ', which is ranked as third best user list on the site. Somehow Killjoi manages to do all this while moonlighting as a mod on Screened, now that's impressive.

There you have it. Another week goes by and another great Giant Bomb user is given the title of Community Starlet. Everyone give it up for Killjoi and all he's done for the site site a be sure to give your nominations for next week.

First?

Yeah! Anyways congrats to Killjoi for the starlet position......well deserved and yeah his lists are awesome.

Posted by JJWeatherman

Nice work, Killjoi.


I'm so sad that there's no banner this week.

Some recommendations for the starlet: Ignor (concept king), TMThomsen (an unsung hero of the wiki), LordAndrew (dude truly deserves to be a mod), and Dungeonbuster (unfortunately, it seems like this guy has left Giant Bomb, but his crazy detailed edits on obscure RPGs are mind-blowing).

Posted by Guided_By_Tigers
@StarFoxA: Both Ignor and Dungeonbuster have left the site....a lot of the top editors have left the site.
Posted by Guided_By_Tigers
@StarFoxA: And speaking of unsung heroes of the wiki....there are so many that do good work but don't get recognition....that's why I think the starlet should be for more middle of the ground wiki editors that have made some amazing contributions but just don't have a large sum of points....that way they get the recognition they deserve....recognizing top users is fine, but I think the focus should be a lesser known editors (second page top editors)
Edited by StarFoxA
@Unknown_Pleasures: Chaser324 has some really awesome edits (see: Mario no Super Picross, Radical Dreamers, SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium, etc), risseless has contributed to a TON of pages, Lies' guides are awesome, ahoodedfigure has some stunningly detailed pages (especially on older games), roushimsx (an early user who has since left the site) has contributed to some more obscure pages on the site (even if he was an advocate of several things that have since been deleted), chickengeorgewashington is awesome when it comes to ridiculous Japanese games, bobafettjm has been doing a great job contributing Game Boy games to the site, and Espiox's contributions to the WarioWare franchise are very well-done.

Edit: Can't forget BoG! Former mod and all-around awesome guy.
Posted by Guided_By_Tigers
@StarFoxA:  Yeah I suggested ahoodedfigure for the starlet....his Star Raiders page is amazing, the best Star Raiders page on the internet....and remember back when Joseppie was the top editor? He was the first big time editor of the site.....daniel_beck_90 has created a lot of great pages but is also no longer around....there are so many good editors that you could have an editor of the week thing going for a very long time.

Killjoi definitely deserves the coveted Starlet spot this week. I consider him my list rival, though from his perspective it's probably closer to this sort of scenario. For the time being I shall simply be thankful for the blog mention, and bide my time.

@Unknown_Pleasures: Icemael has helped out on a lot of Mega Man Battle Network related and Castlevania related pages and DefaultGen is the king of platforms. JackiJinx's odd dedication to adding Crazy Chicken games, noibn is another user who has helped out on early games, especially in the beginning of the site. Lots of great editors out there.
Posted by TurboMan

Aww yeah! I made it in there twice!


The "This is Whiskey Media" video is fantastic.
Posted by Guided_By_Tigers
@StarFoxA: Ah yes! I really like the work DefaultGen has done on platforms.

Needs more banner. Some people like pictures you know.

Getting featured was cool.

Marino or Video_Game_King for starlet!

Posted by Gamer_152

Thanks for including my blog, even with my forgetting to submit it for this week. Oh and three cheers for Killjoi, his wiki edits and comedic content on the site have been awesome. For next week's starlet I recommend Marino, Video_Game_King or LordAndrew.

Boy, that certainly put a smile on my face after a monstrous Monday. Thanks for the starlet feature, though I feel more like a troublemaker than an actual contributor around here! (ZP probably still hates me for making him change the spotlight format and locking him into a weekly obligation)

Anyway, here's something constructive (or maybe destructive: I nominate BiffMcBlumpkin for a starlet spot. No offense to other GB users but he has made me laugh more than anyone else on the site. His forum history reads like a standup routine. Or if you're looking for someone more articulate: DanKempster - I swear, he is one of the best writers on the site but just doesn't get the readership he deserves. Maybe he should just start including hot button words like "anime, japan, voyeuristic fanart" in his blog titles.

Ha! I'm not sure how I became the list guy around here - I've only made 7 of them over nearly 3 years. And I could only aspire to your clever wordplays; seriously Chie Satonaka= "Oh, A Steak? Can I?" kills me every time.

Well deserved, Killjoi. Top bloke with some hilarious and inventive lists :P

Posted by Vexxan

That's some crazy amount of work you've done, good job Killjoi!

Posted by Jazz

Right, thats it...no more answering questions from you Mr Pie on the podcast.

Posted by Guided_By_Tigers

@Killjoi:
I feel like Biff has been losing his touch lately...a lot of his jokes lately have semed forced and he rarely post because he tries to make every post he makes funny which is why I feel like he forces a lot of it.

 

A lot of his stuff is good though don't get me wrong.

@Unknown_Pleasures:

What about HS21? I don't think I've seen him slip up. Then again, I haven't seen Biff slip up, either.

Really? Biff has said a lot of things recently where he tried to be funny but he just came out flat to me.....and HS21 is alright.

Your podcast missed the deadline by like eight hours. I don't like going back and re-editing these because occasionally I'll mess something up and all of the hyperlinks will be broken.
