The lights are on
Here to help new members of the GameInformer Online Community fit in and become active.
Hey all! As I'm sure many of you know (and if you don't, here's your chance to find out), this group is designed to allow for closer community interaction, and to shed some of those shy newcomers the spotlight, so we can all get to know them.
We are trying to look for members in the Article Comment, Forum, Blog, and Group sections who might be due for some of the limelight. However, browsing through such a large and great community is a daunting task for only four moderators. Which is why, without further ado, I give you the option to nominate new users, or users who can't seem to find their way into the community.
When you all give us enough users, along with which section (i.e. Blog, Forum) they belong to, the moderators will then have the ability to go check up the users and see if they can get a spot for the nomination. Hopefully, this will help streamline the process, and allow for even more interaction with each other!
All you need to do: If you find a user you want to nominate, give us their name, respective section, something noteworthy they have done, and hopefully a link to their profile. This will be a great thing for everybody, and while we will try our best, it'd be great to have some help!
Happy browsing, everybody!
Fan-art is a great thing! This was the last I worked on.

Already putting suggestions into action. Fantabulous job guys.

One person I would like to let everybody know about is user "mUgen-0". He just wrote a blog about his idea for an RPG-style brawl on the DS. Well, if you look at his bio page, it turns out that today, March 28, is his birthday!
While a lot of us may miss the deadline, it's never too late to wish someone a happy belated-birthday!
I nominate Jolt.

Now check your message again from my point of view. Aren't the first two lines interesting?
Happy B-Day, mUgen-o!
OHHH. At first I was wondering what you meant by checking the first two lines. Yeah, it's on a different day! :P
That's so crazy. Reminds how far Estonia really is
I found this member through blog herding, he posted quite a few high-quality reviews. One of my nominations for spotlighting: Jonathan Barnes
Thanks for the nom Tank.
I second Stranger is his nomination. A few of his reviews are spot-on. (Arkham City and Alpha Protocol)
I hereby third this.

Well LittleManMordecai may or may not be new, it's been speculated he's actually an older member with an alternate account, however he seems to have some interesting and well thought out opinions on game development. Although he's only written a single blog thus far, I believe he's worth a looksee.
I would also be amiss to neglect OneArmedWonder, a single armed and well-spoken gamer featured in the latest blog herding. You can read about the challenges he's overcome in his blog and read his featured review of Kid Icarus.
Signatures are dumb.
The probability - based on what is known - is very high LMM is that other person.
Thanks for that, Steve. I wasn't even aware of OneArmedWonder, and will check out his work regardless. It's really cool to see everybody trying to help others out, I can't say that enough.
I'll be checking out OneArmedWonder's blog too. Thanks for the heads-up Steve.
EDIT: Just tweeted his blog and shared it through G+ and facebook. He's level three so his blog doesn't appear on the front page, and I think it needs to be spread out. Please help:
I think we may be able to do the first issue of the GIOWG Spotlight soon. We have some good nominations.
A person I'd like to vote for is Le Hannibal. He is the newest member of the Blast from the Past crew and I can't wait to see what he'll contribute in this community.
