To be honest, I didn't really plan on writing a Community Kudos post, but then as I began work mid-week I started to receive nominations, and felt it would be a massive injustice if these noms went undelivered. I don't want to live in a world where noms lay dormant in my inbox, it is my sworn duty to inform people of the kudos they have recieved! For that reason, THIS IS COMMUNITY KUDOS!
How was everyone's Christmas? Mine's was alright. I got the Naruto boxset I asked for, well I got a receipt for the boxset. Madman hasn't delivered it yet because my wife was too late with the order. First world problems, eh?
Talking of Christmas, Lamboman007 has been wriggling his way into the Kotaku community's digital chimney during the Steam sales, gifting games here and there for loads of folks. Ho ho ho! He received nominations from both Chuloopa and Virus__ for the amount Christmas cheer the man has been spreading.
The Loops also made mention of Tigerion and Rize, who have also been gifting games on a daily basis.
Anonymous Pessimist. When he told me he was going to leave Talk Amongst Yourselves alone for a while, I didn't really believe him. But he did leave, and only makes sporadic appearances, despite still being heavily involved in meet ups and stuff. This week Qumulys emailed me with a nom for the guy, and I got a little nostalgic for his presence around here. The nom was for another round of Christmas steam gifting — AP gifted the Q-man with a copy of Skyrim, and some other games. Apparently he wasn't the only one.
That was it for the nominations this week — not as many as usual, but still way more than I expected considering it's the holidays and all.
So congrats to Lamboman007 — you are the winner this week. Hope everyone has a great new year. Thanks so much for all your support in 2011. You guys make this the best job ever, and I hope to see you all next year!
