The lights are on
Here to help new members of the GameInformer Online Community fit in and become active.
Cool, that already means we have three contributors to the next blog. Looks like we'll have to do a new one soon!
Fan-art is a great thing! This was the last I worked on.
"There is neither good nor bad, but thinking makes it so." - William Shakespeare
I have a few nominations to get this thing jump started...
Dawson Wyckoff - He is one of our younger members, but he shows maturity of an aged veteran. He seems to be still getting his GIO legs, but when he comes into his own, I think he will be an excellent part of the community. His blogs are pretty enjoyable, too.
Ghost - He isn't really new (level 10) but he is new to the blog section. I like this guy... probably has something to do with him being a fan of GTA. He has 4 blogs under his belt, and I have liked every one of them. I see good things coming from him in the future.
Dadarkheart - His profile doesn't give much info, but he likes Dynasty Warriors. That alone is hard to come by, so he gets a whole bunch of Jolt Points for that alone. He has been spotted in the comment section of many of the blogs I have written/read, and he has some pretty sound opinions and preferences.
"I'm a dude, playin' a dude, disguised as anotha dude! You a dude that don't know what dude he is!" -Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder
I was going to nominate Ghost as well. I don't really know much about him, but he seems like a great guy and wants to get involved. He also wrote a good GTA blog that was pretty good.
Creator of The GIO Fanfiction Group!
The guy's been around longer than me, but has recently started blogging and was herded this past week for an excellent one about hollywood and games. He's also got really good, (or at least similar to my) taste in TV and games...
I second Dawson Wyckoff. Despite his age he is an incredible up-and-coming blogger. His blogs have been solid so far, and his Older Generation Gaming Week was great.
I can second FinalFantasy1026
Kate Willaert - She is relatively new, but aspires to work for GI. Personally, I think she has the chops. She has been commenting on blogs, and she seems incredibly intelligent. It looks like she is waiting on level 5 to start blogging herself (she has two to her name). I hope she writes more, because her comments lead me to believe that she has lots to say.
I'd second Kate Willaert. She's commented on my last several blogs and the only reason I didn't nominate her myself is that she's still level four. Definately seems to know what she's talking about...
Not sure if it's nomination time or not but...
He's been around a bit as he's level nine, but until recently only posted 2 blogs. His comments are to be found all over the place however and his first (I believe) co-blog with Yusuke regarding video game explanations for why all the crazy awesome stuff was happening was both well done and hilarious! This guy deserves a spotlight as it'll hopefully encourage him to continue blogging a bit...
I second the nomination for El Gato. He has a fine sense of humor and AshaMan is right that the encouragement he would receive from the spotlight would push him to blog more. He has the potential to be a good and consistent blogger on GIO.
I'd like to nominate Valinkenstein for the spotlight. I got him to post his 10 questions blog, and I believe that with the nomination, it'll help bring him out of his shell. The guy reminds me of myself in that he just kinda needs a little push to get started.
I can second that. He is a fellow FFX fan, and I enjoy reading his comments to the 31/31 blogs, as well as my own. His avatar is pretty wonderful, too.
I nominate Glasses.
"True knowledge is birth, and also death."
The Holy Trinity of GIO:
GIO Usage Guidelines, Newcomer Cheat Sheet, Site Feedback
I think Glasses is a good nomination, also thing Darth Carbonite as well.
"You know nothing Jon Snow"
I've had a fair amount of interaction with Glasses and I agree.
I would like to nominate ace13. She is an excellent blogger, and a good friend. She recently wrote a good review of one of my favorite films, and she has also been GaMe'd.
