It's All About You

I know you're probably sick of hearing us beg for your votes for our nomination on the 14th Annual Webby Awards, but I want to mention it one last time before the winners are announced.  I'm not asking for anything this time, I just want to say how thankful I am for this amazing (and growing) web community.  In just a short 6 months since I was introduced to most of you during our site's relaunch, I think this has grown into something to truly be proud of - and it has absolutely nothing to do with me or the site itself.

I think the most exciting thing about all of this, is we are still just beginning.  There are a lot of things planned for this site that I can't wait to give to you guys.  Plus, we're just beginning as a group, too.  We're all learning how this site will grow and take on a life of its own, and I think good things are in store for the future of Game Informer Online.  You guys give it that life and keep it alive, and I can't tell you how awesome that is.

So please allow me one more moment of your time to again express my gratitude.  You guys really showed up, and even if we don't win any awards (heck, even if we weren't nominated), I'm proud to be a part of this.  Thank you.

  • This is my favorite website and even if you don't win you deserved to.

  • You guys did a great job, you deserve a award.

  • I can't wait to see whats next. keep it up GI!

    Man, talk about sucking up...

  • Man, I don't know about anyone else but I'm having a blast on this site. I get to crack jokes, laugh, make other people laugh, and talk about games. Even managed to make a new friend or two... or 38. I sure as hell don't have this kind of fun on Facebook. (Stop sending me Farmville invites, Amanda!) Anyway, y'all some good people and you cats deserve one in the W column.
  • I already voted for you. Good luck.

  • I hate you, Akervik.  More.  Than.  Ever.

    It's been a blast getting to know you too Sean!  It was a rocky start at first (I still remember the days when you couldn't even navigate to a new page of threads x_x) but things are really coming along.  

    Now that we have most of the basic forum features in place (especially from a moderating point of view) I'm looking forward to see what new things await us.

  • You guys deserve the award, this site gives me more joy than was probably intended haha. Congrats!

  • Thanks Sean. I apreciate this, with out the community the site fails.

    So. much. hate.

    can't we just all get along... :-P

  • I enjoy this site more then any other. This is the site I spend most of my time on when I'm on the computer.

    @Mark Burger

    Unforntunately, as long as there are enough noobs online, nobody will be able to get along all the time, and therefore mods like dbull620 will still have the unenviable but necessary job of limiting those user's access.

    To be fair, though, this is a pretty good site.  After all, if we didn't have fairly strict moderation on the forums and in the articles, this would probably be like YouTube, where every third video that gets above 100,000 hits in three months winds up being flamed on.

  • You guys definatly deserve this award, this is by far my favorite site, as video games have always been a passion for me.  I really can't wait to see what is in store for this site in the future :)

  • this is hands down the best site on the web :)

  • You guys are great. I have to check the site daily. Keep up the good work!

  • All I can say is: *applause*

    Don't tell anyone I told you guys, but the next update brings a 3-D patch to GIO.
