The whole giantbomb wikipedia thing is great , very unique and original idea

I submitted like 90825028 things , i hope  some of them get published

Although i dont see this site getting to the level of IGN or Gamespot when it comes to games coverage

I do see this site getting a HUGE fan following

Lol how can you say "The whole giantbomb wikipedia thing is great" then say "very unique and original idea" LOL

How can it be 'unique' and 'original' if someone has already done it.

BTW I'm not slamming this site, I love this site and it's a great fun to use.

I don't expect GB to ever gain the coverage of IGN or GS, but that's because GB is stand alone so you could see obvious reasons for this. Regardless, who cares when you have Jeff, Ryan, Brad, and Vinny at the helm of the site.

There is so much potential but it's going to take a long time to fill all of those game wikis...

I do love the features along with the lack of uptight mods.  Giant Bomb is seeming really nice right now.

Although I do miss sigs and my old 80x80 avatar...  =[

The style is different than IGN etc

This site is more community focused

thats the thing , i think the GB guys are just now realising that Moderating all the submissions is going to be impossible and they are just going to let people post what they want and moderate it later when its posted

I didn't even know there were that many things to submit. You must have been editing pages per word. One paragraph would equal about 50 edits and please tell me you weren't editing in spaces individually as well. My God! You must be the reason that the site is running so slow :P

Probably wishful thinking that people will achieve 1000 points soon enough but I agree that I think they might be underestimating the manpower it takes to keep everything together, I'm expecting many moderators here too.

Well, Giant Bomb is the first website to combine gaming reviews, a podcast, a wiki and a forum in one isn't it?

I agree, its sweet. Just wish some of the images would upload correctly, and that the galleries for a lot of games weren't so cluttered and unorganized.
