This is the High Priest Mega-Man-God of the Greater North Kotaku Republic speaking. Anonymous Pessimist - you have served me well. You have spread the message to the people and I have seen that it is good.
If you have any idea what the hell I am talking about, then you probably spent hours of your week posting on Talk Amongst Yourselves. You're also probably a socially maladjusted human being!
But seriously - holy sweet mother of magic monkey magnets, you guys had the week of all weeks. The most epic week of all time you might say.
First a little illustration...
Every morning Elly walks into the office.
"Man," I say, "TAY is up to a million comments."
"What the hell do they talk about in there!" she says.
Now we know, thanks to Woodze, we know.
But anyway. On to the Kudos.
This week we have joint winners...
First winner is Jamie Watt for organising the the Sydney Meat. I'd like to give him a personal shout out for that as well - because I know how much work he put into the whole thing. And on that note, here is the awesome pic he put together for the event!
But if you look at the tag cloud created above, I think it's clear who the second winner of this week's Community Kudos should be. Anonymous Pessimist - in all seriousness, your contribution this week has been incredible. Congratulations. Great to have you as part of the community!
Congrats to you both.
Now we have a conundrum. The prize was to be the Sonic statue, but since Kudos has a joint winner, I have to provide another prize of equal awesomeness.
So here it is.
Jamie - you win this. The Sonic statue. Since I know how much of a Sonic fan you are.
Anonymous - you win this, a WWE All Stars Brawlstick. I hope this is a prize of equal value to the Sonic statue!
I know these prizes are a bit more valuable than what I usually give for Community Kudos. But I think you'll agree that it's been one of the biggest weeks ever, and the contribution of these two folks has been enormous.
Thanks guys, and have a great weekend. It's my four year anniversary, so I've got to rush! I have a plane to catch!
