The Kotaku community is already overflowing with intelligent, incisive and, well, let’s be honest, occasionally illiterate comments. So, consider our new weekly prize for the best commenter both an incentive to improve and a reward for doing what you’ve always done.
Late last year, I gave away a Big Pile Of Crap. Or, to be precise, three piles of crap. I boxed up all the gaming swag I’d accumulated over the year and offered it up to the Kotaku reader who contributed the most thoughtful, articulate, helpful and worthwhile comments on the site over the Christmas and New Year period.
Now I’ll be doing the very same thing (almost) every single week. Sure, the individual
prizes piles of crap won’t be as impressive, but there’ll be roughly 17 more chances for you to win over the course of the year.
Each Monday I’ll publish a list of ten items taken from the Big Pile Of Crap. And each following Monday I’ll announce the weekly prize winner. That winner will then be able to choose five items from the pile to be delivered to their door.
It kicks off for real on Monday – public holiday or not – so keep an eye out for plenty of crap coming your way.
