I can't believe it. We hit the big 2000. In fact, we're well beyond it. Over 2100 comments in Talk Amongst Yourself at last count. And not just in TAY, but across the site we've had what is probably our biggest commenting week ever. Amazing.
I'm also enjoying the fact that we're starting to see new regulars posting - our community is growing and, unlike other communities, we're actually welcoming the new guys with open arms. I'm really chuffed about that.
This week though has been all about the incredible creative spirit of the Kotaku community, and the way in which crazy ideas just spiral into a never ending pit of chaos and hilarity.
So, first off, let's talk Chuloopa. This guy's is a force of nature. I swear when he's in the mix, Talk Amongst Yourselves just becomes a better, more hilarious place to be. He's like a catalyst for hijinks. This post, the Kotaku Chronicles, may be the greatest thing I've ever read in TAY. Ever.
But you know, there were also some amazing gestures in the community this week, ones that went a little under the radar...
Jo, for example, bought a four pack of Terraria - and handed out three copies of the game to folks in the community. Qumulys gave a copy of DiRT 2 to Welbot, and also gave out a couple of other games on Steam.
You're all beautiful human beings.
It was also Qumulys who had the smart idea of creating a post where we show all the cool stuff that goes on and is created by the Kotaku community through the week - an idea I'm totally going to steal! I just need to work out how it's going to work, but by God I'll make it work!
But anyway - I got to get out of here and interview Suda 51. Jelly?
The winner(s) of Community Kudos this week are...
Jamie What/Watt and Chuloopa.
Congrats guys, and have a great weekend.
